RWU and O2X Partner to Provide College Credits to Firefighters and Other Tactical Athletes

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – O2X Human Performance is excited to announce a partnership with Roger Williams University to offer two college credits to any participant following completion of the O2X Human Performance four-day workshop.

By developing this partnership, RWU and O2X are providing firefighters, first responders, military personnel and other tactical athletes with the opportunity to continue to pursue higher education so they can finish their careers as strong as they started.    

O2X Human Performance’s core mission is to provide science-backed, comprehensive training and education so individuals and elite teams can achieve and sustain high levels of performance. Not only is the revolutionary program saving the lives of our nation’s heroes, it is also helping participants live longer, healthier, more fulfilling lives.

“This is an exciting partnership between RWU and O2X,” said Adam La Reau, co-founder of O2X.  “It’s an unprecedented opportunity for first responders to receive college credit for their experiences in the O2X workshop. O2X and RWU are aligned in both ethos and mission. First responders will receive the necessary training to thrive in their careers and finish as strong as they started.”

Roger Williams University is an educational institution that aims to “strengthen society through engaged teaching and learning,” using experiential learning that connects theory with practice. O2X’s unique EAT SWEAT THRIVE methodology bridges the gap between theory and practice. Taught by world-class human performance experts, the O2X Human Performance curriculum delivers a systematic, hands-on approach to making incremental changes that lead to major, long-term lifestyle improvements. 

“We are honored to be partnering with O2X,” said Jamie Scurry, dean of RWU’s School of Continuing Studies. “Adam and his colleagues have developed a powerful, relevant and transformational program for first responders. We, like O2X, are committed to ensuring that those who engage in this program have a meaningful experience and can apply that training to achieve their personal and professional goals.”

The partnership between O2X and Roger Williams University means that any student who successfully completes the O2X Human Performance four-day workshop is eligible for two college credits toward a RWU bachelor’s degree, associate’s degree or School of Continuing Studies certificate. This eligibility applies to anyone who has previously completed the four-day O2X workshop and anyone who attends a future workshop.
