Sam Brasfield grew up a pretty active kid playing some sports up through middle school. After Junior High and into High School most of his activities involved running from the authorities. He Enlisted in the Navy in 1988 to see the world. His dad was a US Marine and he joined the Navy out of rebellion to his Father. He soon found a passion in movement. Mountain Biking led to running and that led to triathlon. He has been in the Navy for 31 years and continues to train and challenge himself. He now serves as an EOD Officer (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) and the Commanding Officer of Naval Diving and Salvage Training Center in Panama City Beach, FL. At NDSTC, movement is part of his and the whole command’s day. Although he doesn’t get out as much as he would like, he regularly gets out with the staff and students to conduct PT (Physical Training). He is currently spearheading the Tactical Human Performance Program for all Navy Divers and EOD technicians. This program includes training, development, & evaluation of Mindset, Functional Movement, Recovery, and Nutrition that will not only increase the diver’s performance but also make them more resilient and enable them to have a long healthy career in the Navy.
