ARMYou powered by Eleiko is a tactical fitness and performance solution for military and tactical facilities. The program helps military and tactical trainers become stronger at instructing and coaching movement while continuously minimizing injury risks and still letting service men and women perform to their highest potential. With a focus on the Big Five Movements - Squat, Bench, Deadlift, Snatch and Clean and Jerk - the program helps participants increase strength, power and overall fitness with an emphasis on better preparing soldiers for duty and improving performance on the new ACFT. By implementing ARMYou, facilities can increase programme quality inspiring and motivating participation in performance training at their facilities, and delivering programs aligned with the Army's new ACFT and focus on performance training.
