Nate Palin is the Director of Education at the FitOps Foundation, an organization that equips veterans who are passionate about fitness, health, and wellness to find success after the military.
Using fitness and the leadership skills that they gained during their time in the service, veterans are equipped with a new mission: to help improve the lives of others. Focusing on professional and personal development, veterans who graduate from FitOps are experts in fitness coaching, and are awarded a fitness industry professional certification and designated as Certified Veteran Fitness Operatives (CVFO), which gives them the tools necessary to launch a career in fitness and leadership.
Nate Palin served as a leader in the 2nd Ranger Battalion for seven years prior to his transition to strength and conditioning. Over the course of five combat deployments in support of Operations Enduring and Iraqi Freedom, Nate experienced the military’s performance shortcomings and observed the need for enhanced physical training to better support mission critical tasks.
He began his coaching career in 2010, narrowed his focus to tactical strength and conditioning as a Performance Specialist for EXOS in Washington, D.C. in 2012, and coached Special Operations Forces at Joint Base Lewis-McChord from 2015 to 2018.
