Certified Strength and Conditioning SpecialistReef Systems is seeking a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist to provide strength and conditioning services for Combat Rescue Officers (CROs) and Pararescuemen (PJs) assigned to the 103rd Rescue Squadron.Background:Guardian Angel (GA) operators in the Air National Guard (ANG) must always be ready to perform at their peak in order to accomplish their challenging mission set. Attaining and maintaining this level of peak human performance requires the implementation of a top-notch physical conditioning and maintenance program comparable to those seen in Olympic-level and professional sports organizations. The Human Performance Optimization (HPO) program will focus on the whole operator concept to not only assist GA operators in accomplishing their military missions in the short term, but also to emphasize the maintenance of peak performance over the long term in order to lengthen the service life of the "human weapon system while ensuring high quality production.This long-term perspective means the HPO program must include rehabilitative services to provide rapid recovery from injuries and performance services to provide focused physical and mental conditioning. When an operator is degraded or de-conditioned, individualized and specialized care is required to rapidly restore his physical capabilities prior to returning him to full-mission-capable status. Hence, as professional athletes are supported by an integrated professional sports model that tailors performance programs to accomplish the mission at peak levels, operators require the same level of support to perform as tactical athletes and must have a comparable HPO program.
