"Joe is hands down one of the best former team guys out there helping to prepare the next generation for BUD/S..."

"I've learned so much in the amount of time we've spoken, from our Zoom calls to the great communication we both had. Joe is extremely knowledgeable and creates a workout with purpose and benefit behind it. Really enjoyed this program and I already feel as if I'm ready to start day 1 week 1 and crush it." S.S.

"Joe's programming is next level..."

“He is constantly available and he designs your program based on your goals, fitness level, and ability. His coaching calls are awesome for developing your mindset and understanding your “why”. This program has been everything I hoped, and I’d recommend it to anyone looking to go into Special Forces.” N.G.

"A game changer in my preparation and confidence..."

"The SEAL Ready Program has helped me out tremendously. The programming and the one-on-one mentorship was a game changer in my preparation and confidence." K.A.

"For me, it wasn't only about improving fitness..."

“It was about finding better mindset work, better overall prep to training, and finding like minded people to go through this journey with. Chasing this dream has been all consuming for me, and I'm glad Joe was able to support me during it.” C.V. 

"I now have the tools to better my time..."

"Every weekly call with Joe or Chris I felt myself get stronger mentally because I had their full support, especially the breathing exercises.” C.C.

"This program is what you need..."

"It will build you mentally and physically into a better person. It brings out the discipline you are going to need through scheduling your workouts, eating enough food, and recovering. Highly recommend!" L.G

"This program has put me on track to be the man that I've always wanted to become..."

“My character has been tested and refined. I've seen some amazing physical improvements, and more importantly my mental game is much more sharp because of this program. From all the weekly private calls, to the group calls on Saturday's with the rest of the fellas, to the books I've read suggested by Joe, these have all helped shaped me into a more selfless and confident young man. Perspective is the key to life, and this program has set me up for success to accomplish any goals I put my mind too. If I can finish this program, so can you. Cheers to the next generation of strong men." L.E.

"A truly unique training program..."

"Thanks to Joe and Chris for fostering a truly unique training program! Two guys who know what they’re doing and allow you to put your trust into and grow. This program helped me grow in many areas and I’m very thankful I did this on my journey to BUD/S." DJ

"This program is a great start for anyone who has the desire to become a SEAL..."

“These guys put in the work and have real life experience in the SEAL teams and this program is living proof that they have the knowledge and skillset to back up what they teach and expect you to know. I have the fastest CSS time that Joe has had since starting this program at 7 minutes and 26 seconds. I have 10+ years of swimming under my belt, but I never would have achieved this time without their guidance. I've never done the CSS before this program and they helped out a TON with weekly video form checks and pointers, Chris even sent himself doing the CSS so everyone could see how it was done properly!" A.M.

"This program is the real deal..."

"This program is the real deal, and honestly could not have helped me more in my journey to become a SEAL. I dropped my 4 mile timed run by over 6 minutes, and dropped over a minute off of my 500yd CSS. My PST numbers increased significantly, and nearly doubled my push-ups, sit-ups and pull-ups. The mentors/coach’s of this program have been there before and offer unbelievable mindset coaching and physical programming. They help take all of the guess work out of what you are currently doing, and will get you prepared for your journey to become a SEAL."  R.B.

“The workouts where tough and as time went on saw the results get better and better. The calls and the conversations had the biggest impact for me.

I’m glad I went through the program and I'm looking forward to growing with my mentors in the future." C.W.P.

If you're struggling in your training
...you're not alone.
The steps seem so simple.

     1. Run, swim and do calisthenics
     2. Eat lots of food and get enough sleep
     3. Complete a PST, arrive at BUD/S, and never quit

At least thats what everyone says online … 
But somehow my training just doesn't seem to be getting me anywhere and I never know if I am doing enough or too much. 

And I have seen others who have trained hard still not make it through BUD/S selection.

I’m supposed to see progress… but I’m hardly moving forward in my strength and endurance.
It’s been a year since I started training hard and I’m still barely able to pass the PST.

I’m not afraid to work hard. I know I can do this!
But, I’ve been doing everything they told me to do, and it's just not working.

I know I’m called to live a life of impact and purpose but I feel like I'm spinning my wheels in my training and going in circles. 

And there is so much miss-information out there online..

... I just don’t know what I should be focusing on in my training.
How do I know if I have what it takes to not only make it through training but more importantly, do I have what it takes to be a Navy SEAL?

I see other people who have made it through training and lived a life of impact in the SEAL teams.
I know I’m called to the same path as they are.

And yet, I am plagued with self doubt..
What if I can’t do this?
What if I’m not good enough?

I can’t go back to living a life of indirection and mediocrity.
That would kill me.

I know I need to take my training and preparation to the next level.

Is this track playing on repeat in your head? 
If this is your internal dialogue…
I get it. I've been there.
Nerd skinny kid, kicked off the football team, and beat up by bullies growing up.

And yet I felt called to live a life of purpose and impact...I knew I had a long way to go.

I left home when I was 18 and went ALL IN on my physical and mental preparation… 
I spent everything I had on fitness programming, aquatic training, and mindset coaching.
but something just wasn’t clicking…

Was it the methods I was taught?
Was I just not cut out to be a SEAL?
…was it just me?

I knew I felt called to serve and to serve with the best operators in the world.
But I knew if I couldn’t figure it out fast, I would have to give up.

I felt like a failure.

I began to learn how important a holistic approach to training is...
I understood the power of mindset combined with physical challenge to develop an unbeatable roadmap to dominate my path. I was born for impact. 

After completing BUD/S in 2007 going through a winter hell week class, I graduated SEAL Qualification Training in 2008 and headed to my first SEAL Team. I went on to serve around the world as a SEAL operator for 10 years including 4 years as a BUD/S instructor.

As a BUD/S instructor, I witnessed the transformation process of trainees into SEALS. I mastered the nuances of what it takes to make it through the training pipeline and perform at your peak as an elite operator.

Helping men become the warriors they are meant to be became the core of my life's purpose. I knew I could help, regardless of where they are coming from - be it skinny, overweight, bullied or looked down on.

I got sick of seeing solid candidates not reaching their full potential or quitting on themselves.

I designed a system to help them discover their physical baseline, find their weaknesses, mentally prepare, overcome limiting beliefs, smash through training plateaus, and develop the necessary skillsets required at BUD/S.


I am committed to helping 100 men prepare for BUD/S in 2021

If you follow what the other trainees are doing, you will get the same results they are getting… Minimal results, confusion and self doubt.

THAT'S why there is nearly 80% attrition rate at BUD/S.

But this does not need to be your story.

I built the SEAL Ready Program system for you - the ultimate roadmap to dominating at BUD/S, even if you are just starting out, don't know where to begin, or are a seasoned athlete.

It's the same process that I refined and honed during my time as a BUD/S instructor and has helped transform the lives of hundreds of SEAL trainees.

The SEAL Ready Program is not some band-aid solution that only covers part of whats needed in your training and preparation.
Its a full system to help you:
  • Pass the PST with top-tier scores (… even if you are stuck at a plateau now)
  • ​Physically dominate at BUD/S (...without wondering if you are training too little or too much)
  • Develop the mindset of a warrior (...that will go with you into your career as an operator)
We meet you where you are at in your current level of training and preparation. Taking you to the next level and beyond what you imagine possible.

The principles aren’t new. They’ve been honed and refined by years of real-world operating and elite training experience.

The way we implement them is specifically designed to help you prepare efficiently and effectively, taking a holistic approach to your BUD/S preparation.

The recipe works... but it doesn’t work for everyone. You must be:

      1. Willing and able to get out of your comfort zone
      2. Coachable and mature enough to learn from the best
      3. On this path to win at all cost - you are not here to try it out

But if thats you then the SEAL Ready Program might be a good fit for you.

And if you want to see if you’d be a good fit, I want to offer you a free call.

On the call we will dig into where your training is at currently, what you have tried (or haven’t), whats working and whats not, and get clarity around what you would need to focus on to help you crush the PST and ultimately dominate at BUD/S.
