HURLBURT FIELD, Fla. (AFNS) -- How does someone prepare themselves for a four-day operation, when they are on the go, but must remain vigilant and clear-headed enough to deliver airpower onto the battlefield, but with limited sleep?

The 24th Special Operations Wing operators have a team of more than 40 human-performance-providers in their arsenal, working to prepare, mold and enhance the strength, conditioning and performance of these Airmen through various programs.

Special Tactics operators are intelligent, intense, mission focused and lethal battle-groomed warriors conducting battlefield surgery, personnel recovery, precision strike and global access operations across the globe, any time, any place.

Recently, this human performance team has partnered with TrainHeroic, a software company, to further enhance the Special Tactics operator’s capabilities and quality of life. With a downloadable application on a mobile device, the team is able to provide easy communication between operator and provider.

Between temporary duties, deployments and responding to humanitarian calls across the globe, it’s not uncommon for Special Tactics operators to be away from home for more than 200 days every year. TrainHeroic can be quickly accessed by phone, tablet or laptop, bridging the communication gap for operators to send questions about their assigned program directly to their human performance providers. The direct communication allows those same providers to go into the app and make individual adjustments for the operator at an unprecedented rate rather than the previous method of printing a plan and waiting for operators to return home to gain feedback.

“It gives us a direct line to the operator, to continue being able to keep in contact with them and optimize them, no matter where they are in the world,” said Hunter Treuchet, 24th SOW human performance program director. “It advances the operator’s human performance knowledge and the efficiency in which our providers can push it to them.”

With more than 1,000 operators scattered across more than 10 geographic locations, this new system is standardizing how the human performance teams move forward and ensure they’re using the same semantics across the globe.

“Every time an operator arrives at a new unit, they have to get used to the coach. It should be the other way around, the coach should get used to the operator,” said Craig Engelson, 24th SOW Preservation of Force and Family program director. “The operators need to hear the same language. They have a lot to focus on and if we can synchronize what we're doing across the force without losing the skill set of the professionals that we hire, the second and third order effects are great.”

Providers can tailor specific workout plans with this new software to meet every operator’s needs and in the event that the operator changes units, his gaining provider can pull his individual program from the software and continue the Airman’s development without unnecessary adjustments.

“At the end of the day, it allows us to do a lot of in-person coaching when we aren't actually with them and that's the hardest part of being a human performance provider,” Treuchet said. “We needed to find a way to keep in touch with the operators that was easy, relatively fast, not work intensive, and user friendly, because those are all the barriers to success in technology.”
