ARCFIT™ is a wholistic fitness and wellness program centered around firearm-focused, personal defense concepts.


At ARCFIT™ we embrace and advance one simple truth - YOU are the weapon! We understand that the safe, effective and responsible use of a gun is essentially driven and supported by one's physical capabilities, mental acuity, and martial intelligence. Therefore, we've engineered a revolutionary Tabata-style High Intensity Interval Training ("HIT") program combining dynamic movement drills, martial arts exercises and defensive shooting concepts into one singular workout routine designed to develop and expand an armed defender's most fundamental defense platform - the human apparatus - mind, body and energy center. 

Though centered around firearm skill drills, there is no actual “live-firing” in ARCFIT™. A straight-ahead workout program, ARCFIT™  focuses less on promoting actual marksmanship fundamentals but concentrates more on preparing and conditioning the modern defender to better manage the economy of motions ("arc of movements") and focused use of energy, that ultimately impact and influence one's ability to prevail in response to a potentially lethal encounter.

Created by M. O’Neal Mitchell, a certified personal trainer, firearm instructor and life-long martial artist, ARCFIT™ will not only strengthen and tone your body but, ultimately, transform your entire being into a more capable defensive platform.


If you want to improve your overall health and fitness and simultaneously advance your defensive shooting capabilities, ARCFIT™ is the perfect workout program for you! 

   Save time, money and energy by combining your self-defense and fitness efforts, and join ARCFIT™ today!
