Local Fitness Expert Creates New Training Program for U.S. Marines

East Aurora resident Steven Helmicki, president of Primordial Strength Inc., was contacted by trainers from the U.S. Marine Corp. base in Camp Lejune over the summer to consult on new training methods. After contributing with Noreen Kuhn on the Semper Fit presentation titled “Uncommon Training with Common Movements,” next came a week-long mentoring program that ran daily from 6 a.m. until the dead of the night. 

Former Lancaster resident Len Kuhn, manager of the Area 4 Gym at Camp Lejune, then flew to Buffalo to certify in Primordial Basic, Intermediate, Advanced, Elite and Marine Functional Force Training. The Marines were ready for a training shift and wanted their Special Ops and combat Marines trained like athletes. After a 150-point needs analysis, Primordial Marine Functional Force Training One was created to meet the needs of our fighting men and women. Area 4 was designated as the new functional training facility at Camp Lejune and Primordial chose Sorinex and Gillman equipment to be used at the new facility.   

Helmicki’s curriculum for Marine Functional Force Training One is a National Association of Sports Medicine-approved course and can be used to set up authentic boot camp/military-style training in homes, gyms, corporations, schools or hospitals.
