Known as the “Quiet Professionals,” Green Berets are some of the most highly-trained Soldiers in the Army. Their readiness requires them to have a performance training program designed to increase physical performance and emotional well-being, prevent injuries, and improve mental skills necessary to perform optimally in training and combat operations.
This is the goal of the U.S. Special Operations Command’s Human Performance Program (HPP), also known as Tactical Human Optimization, Rapid Rehabilitation and Reconditioning Program (THOR3).
A Special Operations Soldier assigned to 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne) at Fort Carson, Colo. said the training at THOR3 significantly contributes to enhancing physical capabilities. He also indicated the physical improvements made are resulting in increased attendance in the program according to the Green Beret assigned to 10th Group.
“The biggest thing about the THOR program is its growth,” said the Special Operator assigned to 10th Group. “You see more people filtering in. The facility will definitely need to be expanded to accommodate that.”
