Navy SEALs require an extraordinarily high level muscular strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness to carry out assigned missions. With over 220 exercises, 90+ movies and 20 calculators and hundreds of pages of reference material, Navy SEAL Fitness helps you to train like a Navy SEAL.
To train for these physically demanding tasks, the Navy created The Navy SEAL Physical Fitness Guide. The authors of this comprehensive guide, physicians and physiologists, were chosen because of their special qualifications in the area of physical fitness and their knowledge of the SEAL community. Their expertise ensured the guide was written with a goal of expanding the individual Navy SEAL's knowledge of attaining and retaining a high level of fitness.
Because SEALs train for mission related performance, the objective for every workout is elite fitness, validated by the ability to perform every task at the level necessary to accomplish any mission – no matter what. What does that mean? It means that training must be comprised of broad and inclusive, constantly varied functional movements that are performed at high intensity in order to prepare for the unknown.
The Navy SEALS are an elite branch of the U.S. Special Forces whose reputation for outstanding physical fitness is unparalleled. Now everybody that wants to improve his or her health, strength and endurance can take advantage of this information.

You don't have to be an operator to find this app useful. This app is a great addition to any one looking to get more out of the gym and improve their fitness game. The add on nutrition supplement is great as well. Even if you do not follow all of the advice listed and use it ala carte style as I do, this is a great tool and an essential addition to anyones fitness library. Being a military contractor, I deploy frequently and this app is useful wherever I am in the world. No matter the equipment or lack thereof, I am able to put together a solid workout and diet plan based on the useful information provided. I highly recommend you buy this app!!
100% Amazing | Worth the money!
For someone like me, a (hopefully) future Navy SEAL, this is amazingly useful. Pocket sized for going anywhere, cheap and very deep explanations. Every exercise category has the different resources you might or might not need, and all types of tips, perfect forms and explanation on how to complete a exercise, videos and pictures, just so much detail! Perfect handbook and app for everything you need for training. Very worth $ 1.99 (also the $.99 for nutrition is very useful too).
Simply the BEST!
I do a lot of marathons and mud runs this app is on point and the best in instructional advice. I workout daily and it's really motivates you to push harder without noticing what your doing to yourself...(if you follow what they say). Just from changing my diet a little, and wearing a weighted vest every two days. I went from running a 8mile pace to 7-6:5 pace. It'll be nice if they would make a gps with a drill sergeant. coaching you.
