Readying the next generation of PJ’s (also known as Air Force pararescue) is the job of Tyler Christiansen. He’s not on his own, however. In fact the team of folks who see these candidates through the process of training and selection is growing. The reason for that is the value that their expertise brings to the special operations community. Their incredible attention to detail when it comes to overall wellness and performance is a sight to see. From cutting edge technology to on hand psychologists, no stone goes unturned when it comes to transforming these high performers.
