8 Weeks to SEALFIT Review

Check out the review for the book – 8 Weeks to SEALFIT by Coach Mark Divine. I personally worked with Coach Divine for several years and picked up a copy of this book as a training guide to become a coach at SEALFIT in Encinitas, California.

The Advanced Training Guide by Mark Divine is the training guide to the SEALFIT Physical Training Program.  This is the same guide Coach Divine provides to his Academy students. Covering many topics to include:

Learn the 5 Mountains of SEALFIT

Staying in the Fight mentality
Physical training techniques and standards for developing Strength, Stamina, Work Capacity, Mental Toughness, Endurance and Durability.

Accelerate your training with SEALFIT.  Get the definitive guide Coach Divine uses to train athletes in the SEALFIT Academy program.

I bought this as a companion book to Mark Divine’s other book The Way of the SEAL: Think Like An Elite Warrior to Lead and Succeed. Compared to other SEAL fitness books, this one is easy to understand and follow, is to the point, isn’t filled with lengthy fitness mumbo-jumbo, and has pics for demonstration guides so there is no confusion as to how to do the exercises.

  • Overview of SEALFIT’s whole – person 5 Mountain training philosophy
  • Coach Divine’s “Staying in the Fight” mental toughness tactics
  • SEALFIT’s physical training guide and standards for strength, stamina and endurance
  • Effective Team training principles and tactics
  • Body Weight only introductory workout program (for those new to functional training)

Review of 8 Weeks to SEALFIT from Joe W. (SEALFIT Academy and Kokoro graduate) “I printed out the 8 Weeks to and keep it on my shelf.
