A Sneak Peek into 8 Weeks to SEALFIT

It begins with your arrival as a Navy SEAL BUD/S cadet. There’s no time to dilly dally. You either do the first workout and commit to this training, or don’t bother. Next day, you move on to another challenge completely different than what you’d expect. It’s not the stuff for doubters, quitters, or complainers.
These 8 weeks will be hard. Mark will push your physical body to its limits and test your inner resolve. You’ll be tempted to give up. But if you embrace the suck of the challenge, you’ll begin to win. The stories and adventures Mark takes you on — escaping battlefield danger, calming yourself when there’s no way out, learning to trust your gut — will tap into more power than you knew you had.

You’ll begin to glimpse, and reach, your full potential. You’ll develop the character that makes a Navy SEAL: discipline, drive, determination, self-mastery, honor, integrity, courage, and leadership. You’ll thrive in a teamwork setting. You’ll learn to laugh and not take your circumstances so seriously. You’ll even know how to functionally train without equipment.

This is the ground-breaking training that increases SEALFIT athletes’ overall endurance, work capacity, and toughness. Be someone special. Let’s get started...

A leadership book by former Navy SEAL and New York Times bestselling author Mark Divine, focused on harnessing the principles of purpose and discipline in life to achieve success.

What does it take to command a team of elite individuals?

It requires a commitment to seven key principles: Courage, Trust, Respect, Growth, Excellence, Resiliency, and Alignment. All of these are present in an elite team which commits to them deeply in order to forge the character worthy of uncommon success.

Retired Navy SEAL Commander, Entrepreneur and New York Times Best Selling Author Mark Divine (founder of SEALFIT, NavySeal.com, and Unbeatable Mind) reveals what makes the culture of an elite team, and how to get your own team to commit to serve at an elite level. Using principles he learned on the battlefield, training SEALs, and in his own entrepreneurial and growth company ventures, Mark knows what it is to lead elite teams, and how easily the team can fail by breaching these commitments.

Elite teams challenge themselves to step up everyday to do the uncommon. Developing the principles yourself and aligning your team around these commitments will allow you to thrive in VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, ambiguity) environments, no matter your background or leadership experience.

Drawing from his twenty years leading SEALs, and twenty five years of success and failure in entrepreneurship and ten years coaching corporate clients, Mark Divine shares a very unique perspective that will allow you to unlock the tremendous power of your team.

Kokoro Yoga, by New York Times bestselling author and former U.S. Navy SEAL Mark Divine, is an integrated physical, mental, and spiritual training, designed initially for the nation's elite special-ops soldiers and now taught to anyone seeking to develop the heart and mind of a warrior. Kokoro, the Japanese concept of warrior spirit—or merging heart and mind into action—is the central focus of Divine's new approach to teaching yoga.

Coach Divine's yoga sequences are focused to adapt to all physical and mental capabilities, combining breathing, meditation, and visualization into both traditional poses as well as cross-training/combat-conditioning exercises. His decades of experience with amateur and professional athletes, active and aspiring Navy SEALs, and wounded warriors uniquely qualifies him as an expert motivator and teacher.

With Kokoro Yoga the practitioner will:

* Get an unbeatable full-body workout through body-weight functional movements that can be done at home or on the on go
* Increase flexibility while building long, lean muscle mass
* Improve physical and mental balance, focus, and control at all levels—including a special segment designed for those recovering from PTSD
* Find emotional, intuitional, and spiritual harmony to achieve peak performance

"At a time
when we must adapt to the changing character of conflict, this is a serious
book on a serious issue that can give us the edge we need.” 





—General James Mattis, USMC, Ret. 





"Left of Bang offers a crisp lesson in survival in which Van Horne and Riley
affirm a compelling truth: It's better to detect sinister intentions early
than respond to violent actions late. Left of Bang helps readers avoid the bang."  





—Gavin de Becker, bestselling author of The Gift of Fear 





"Rare is the book that is
immediately practical and interesting. Left of Bang accomplishes this from start to finish. There is something
here for everyone in the people business and we are all in the people
business."  





—Joe Navarro, bestselling author of What Every BODY is Saying. 





"Left of Bang is a highly important and innovative book that offers a
substantial contribution to answering the challenge of Fourth Generation war
(4GW)."  





—William S. Lind, author of Maneuver Warfare Handbook 





"Like Sun Tzu's The
Art of War, Left of
Bang isn't just for the military. It's a must read
for anyone who has ever had a gut feeling that something's not quite
right...be it walking down the street, sitting in a corporate boardroom, or
even entering an empty home."  





--Steven Pressfield, bestselling author
of The Lion's Gate, The Warrior Ethos and Gates of Fire





“An amazing book! Applying the lessons
learned during the longest war in American history, and building on seminal
works like The Gift of Fear and On Combat, this book provides a
framework of knowledge that will bring military, law enforcement, and
individual citizens to new levels of survival mindset and performance in
life-and-death situations. Left of Bang is an instant classic.”  





--Lt. Colonel Dave Grossman, U.S. Army
Ret., author of On Combat and On Killing 











-- You walk into a restaurant and get an
immediate sense that you should leave. 





-- You are about to step onto an elevator
with a stranger and something stops you.  





-- You interview a potential new employee
who has the resume to do the job, but something tells you not to offer a
position. 





These scenarios all represent LEFT OF
BANG, the moments before something bad happens. But how many times have you
talked yourself out of leaving the restaurant, getting off the elevator, or
getting over your silly “gut” feeling about someone? Is there a way to not
just listen to your inner protector more, but to actually increase your
sensitivity to threats before they happen?  





Legendary Marine General James Mattis
asked the same question and issued a directive to operationalize the Marine
Corps’ Combat Hunter program. A comprehensive and no-nonsense approach to
heightening each and every one of our gifts of fear, LEFT OF BANG is the
result.
This book provides an in sight into my lifetime experiences from birth to the present day. It also concentrates thoroughly on defining the qualities desired of an SAS military leader. In terms of personal experiences of leadership I would say that the military provided me with a blueprint of acceptable leadership behaviours. Looking at the training I went through with Special Forces reveals some of the unique qualities that are required to fulfil this role. I would say that conventional military regiments differed somewhat to the democratic, even abdicratic approach of Special Forces units such as the SBS, SAS and 2REP French Foreign Legion. While I was serving with the Marines I wanted to transfer to a Special Forces unit but was refused entry to the organisation because of my commitment to the Marines. This was a great issue at the time but I eventually rejoined the SAS regiment anyway after resigning from the Marines. My first period of SAS training followed passing of the usual Battle Fitness Test (BFT) that was completed while at a barracks off the King's Road in Chelsea. I can explain that my first thoughts about joining the SAS occurred in 1976 when I was serving as a junior guardsman at Pirbright in Surrey. The inspiration came from my platoon commander who had previously been a member of the Guards Independent Parachute Brigade. This was a unit that largely preceded G Squadron of the SAS Regiment. Later actions then included the Iranian embassy incident under direction of the Counter Revolutionary Warfare (CRW) team and patrols in areas of Northern Ireland that were subject to violent terrorist actions. I served also with 23 and 21 between 1985 and 1992 and the Scots Guards and French Foreign Legion experiences came early in my career.
