First Phase Basic Underwater Demolition/SEALs (BUD/S) candidates use teamwork to perform physical training exercises with a 600 pound log at Naval Amphibious Base Coronado on April 6, 2011. Log physical training exercises are one of many physically demanding evolutions that are part of first phase training at BUD/S. The Navy SEALs are the maritime component of U.S. Special Operations Forces and are trained to conduct a variety of operations from the sea, air and land.

From the WWII beachheads of the Pacific to the recent delivery of ultimate justice to Osama Bin Laden, the U.S. Navy SEALs have perfected the ability to weed out weakness and operate at peak performance for long periods of time. At SEALFIT, the benefits of SEAL training are combined with the principals of CrossFit and Eastern martial arts disciplines to develop extreme physical strength and endurance, as well un-shatterable mental toughness.
Commander Mark Divine (Ret.), a former SEAL and member of SEAL teams 1 and 3, designed SEALFIT to fill in the gaps of traditional physical training that often led well-intentioned candidates to frustration or failure when attempting to complete Navy BUD/S or Army Special Forces Selection. While physical fitness is an important component to success in the completion of selection for special operations roles, mental toughness and an unbreakable spirit are vital.
By targeting the “whole person,” SEALFIT aims to develop mental fortitude, spiritual growth and strong values, thereby producing students capable of handling the variables of both life and rigorous training.
So you want to be an operator? Ask yourself first, if you are SEALFIT.
