Hello, I am Stew Smith and I am very excited to be working with Raptor Weight Vest as a trainer and blogger / video blogger to create new content using the Raptor Weight Vest.
Here is a little history about me for those of you who are unfamiliar. I am a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, a former Navy SEAL Lieutenant, and author of several fitness books such as Tactical Fitness, The Complete Guide to Navy SEAL Fitness, Maximum Fitness, The Special Ops Workouts, and SWAT Fitness.
I have also written more than 700 articles and sell over 40 eBooks for military.com and StewSmith.com. I also consult and present with the government in the area of troop physical development through my non-profit training program called – Heroes of Tomorrow.
I have worked professionally in the tactical fitness (military, police, fire fighter, rescue, and special ops) arena for nearly 20 years focusing on a specialty of helping people become a member of any unit that requires a rigorous selection phase and physical fitness test.
Of course, many of my readers just want to lose weight and keep it off. I have trained athletes in College, Olympians, and Professional Sports (Hockey and Baseball.) and certified by the National Strength and Conditioning Association as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS). I speak often at fitness conferences that focus on the Tactical Athlete.
You may have seen me in this fun TV segment I did for The National Geographic Channels – “Fight Science” and have appeared in several newspaper and magazine features to include Washington Post, Men’s Fitness, Men’s Health, and Sports Illustrated to name a few.
