Prepare for Success
Fitness preparation is key to succeeding in Assessment & Selection. In addition to physical strength, you must also possess the mental focus and unconquerable spirit necessary to persevere under the extreme stress of a high operational tempo and asymmetric warfare.
This program is focused on the physical fitness portion of this ideology: improving physical performance through training and nutrition. It will help prepare you for the physical aspects of the Assessment and Selection process.
