Former Navy SEAL to speak in Paris

Posted: February 25, 2015

Navy SEALs have gotten a lot of exposure recently, due to the blockbuster movie American Sniper. When added to the big news about the capture and killing of Osama Bin Laden, people still have a great desire to learn about this clandestine special operations group of warriors.

SEAL stands for Sea, Air, and Land, because SEALs operate in all three areas. As a result, they go through what is the most difficult training anywhere. Their training program is called BUD/S, which stands for Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL.

A surprisingly small number of people make it through the 21 week course, which is broken into three 7-week stages, not counting a 3 week prep course which is mostly physical. As the weeks go on, more and more people voluntarily drop out, with the total number of people dropping often exceeding 50% of the class. Of course, physical injuries also play a toll on each class.

Give Yourself The Time You Need

It seems like we switched over to the New Year just yesterday. But can you believe it’s been almost a month and a half? The older I get, the faster time flies.

By now, we’re used to writing the “15” on our checks. Old habits are hard to break, right? If your like me, you probably wrote “14” a couple times. But necessity drives change, and given enough time, we’ll catch up.

I wonder what other changes we’re making that are starting to stick. This is the time when I see lots of new members at the gym. Unfortunately, not all of them will stay with it.
