BASEFIT HAS CREATED A READINESS AND RESILIENCE TRAINING MODEL THAT STRENGTHENS AND SUSTAINS EACH PARTICIPANTS BEHAVIORAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH.
Coaching / Leadership
Basefit® revolves around training our Nation’s heroes and deploying them as coaches, mentors, and teachers to create a total health experience for each team. Led by a Master Coach, the coach-training program teaches essential capabilities for coaches to serve their teams, track progress, and take action through the team training experience. Built around the philosophy of direct, teach, and empower, coaches will have access to tools that create specific team and individual assignments, monitor progress, and flag exceptions.
Team Resilience Principles
Coaches introduce and work with participants to apply a new team resilience principle every week. Incorporating these principles during fitness and nutrition adherence strengthens each participant's total health foundation, creating small steps of change that bring powerful payoffs, individually and as part of a team.
Basefit® focuses on eating properly balanced and portioned meals at regular intervals to continuously fuel the body and mind and achieve total health goals. Participants also learn mindful eating techniques; the practice of paying closer attention to what you eat and why. Mindful eating helps create awareness around the role of food in meeting both physical and emotional needs. Establishing this awareness can help individuals avoid eating behaviors that create long-term health risks.
Basefit® focuses on sustainable physical activity that can be performed and maintained despite busy work and life schedules. Participants are required to dedicate 30 minutes per day, six days each week to physical health. Physical activities are divided into three days of strength training that cover all major muscle groups within a week and three days of target heart rate training, adapted for age and fitness level, to steadily build endurance and reduce injury risk. Participants will perform physical activities in a micro and macro team environment.
Team Training / Environment
Basefit® is designed around total team success, not individual achievement alone. Teamwork is integral to the success of the individual and vital to the mission of the solution. Team interactions are facilitated through team meetings and training, goal setting, consultations, body analysis testing, and access to the Basefit Remote Coaching System.
Our Approach to the Basefit® Design
Several research methodologies were utilized to examine the complex role of an individual's total health, including many one-on-one interviews and focus groups. Discussions included the challenges to military, government, and civilian workforce readiness, resilience, and overall well-being. To complement this human factor research, we compiled extensive qualitative and quantitative resource intelligence to inform our product development lifecycle.
Basefit® combines key training elements to achieve total health: stress management, complete balanced nutrition, multi-layered accountability, and physical readiness. Participants envision, achieve, and sustain total health, which is reinforced and practiced daily at work and at home.
