Being SEALFIT is more than just a sculpted physique; it is a way of life, state of mind and a way of orienting oneself in the world. To be SEALFIT is to embody the character traits of discipline, drive, determination, service, self mastery, honor, integrity, courage and authentic leadership.
SEALFIT was developed by retired Navy SEAL Commander Mark Divine for the unique and specialized needs of professionals seeking to reach their fullest potential, for first responders, industrial athletes and militaryforces and life-long warrior-athletes to perform their jobs and come home safely. We all share a need for our minds and bodies to work at peak performance over long periods of time, while maintaining an unconquerable spirit and unwavering mental toughness. At SEALFIT we share this passion and aspire to train you if you seek this way of life.
The SEALFIT athlete demonstrates the following traits, distinct from the sport athlete:
Must work at near peak output for very long periods of time, with unknown periods of rest.
Must be prepared for the known AND equally prepared for the unknown.
Does not always have access to a gym and the “proper” training tools
Is not competing to win, but to survive and accomplish a mission that can have life, death or strategic consequences well beyond their own pay-grade.
Must be strong, but not so concerned with maximal strength. Needs Strength Stamina to move heavy stuff far and long.
Must have exceptional endurance and be able to go long, under load
Must have an intense capacity for work in short, medium and long time domains
Must be durable, have powerful core strength, not be prone to injury, and knowledgeable about how to sustain the body at a high level of readiness over the long haul.
Must be mentally tough and trains to be so
Usually works as part of a unit or team, and works out with that team
Not only do we seek elite functional fitness, strength stamina, durability, endurance and mental toughness, but we believe that hard physical exercise builds character, self confidence and spiritual strength. These qualities build strong individuals and families and allow you to thrive amidst chaos.
We develop warriors of all walks of life in elite-level fitness, awareness, durability and longevity. We thrive on cultivating the “Kokoro” (warrior) spirit in our clients, helping them be unbeatable in life. We specialize in developing the whole person: elite athleticism, durability and mental toughness, emotional control and sense development and, perhaps most important, spiritual strength.
Our Mission at SEALFIT is to develop mental toughness and promote spiritual growth in our clients – changing their lives and the lives of those they touch in the process.
The world is unpredictable and chaotic. Destiny favors the prepared (in mind, body and spirit). Hard physical training, proper nutrition, and strong values are foundational to living a good life. Personal Growth encompasses the whole person: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. We believe that there is an athlete and warrior within everyone. Leadership is best shown through example. We use what works and discard what doesn’t. We innovate. We treat everyone with respect, encouragement, and sometimes, tough love. The defining attributes of SEALFIT leaders is an unconquerable spirit, a burning desire to better oneself, and service to your teammates and communities
SEALFIT is demanding, but extremely effective, fun and scalable to meet the needs of both beginners and advanced trainees.
What if, over the course of 50 hours, you could tap into a limitless source of power you never knew existed? Imagine moving through life without fear, with total confidence in your ability to overcome obstacles and reach any mission or goal, no matter how big or challenging. That's what Kokoro Camp can do for you. It's a test that connects you to the very core of who you are, and what you're made of.
SEALFIT Kokoro Camp is, quite simply, the world's premier training camp for forging mental toughness, modeled after the US Navy SEAL Hell Week. Yes, it is brutal. No, it's not for everyone. You may not qualify, or make it through the training. Yet, if you're ready for this challenge, you'll find it to be an experience that changes your life - FOREVER.
Our mission is not merely to push you for its own sake, but rather, to help you develop mental toughness and insight that you are capable of 20x more than you ever thought possible. This 20x principle applies to all areas of your life-your health and fitness, career, income, relationships and beyond. Once you see and "get" this fundamental truth, it becomes impossible to ever settle for less in your life.
As you cultivate the non-quitting warrior spirit over three days, you'll discover sources of discipline and focus while you sharpen your will and determination. Your ability to direct your attention on your goals and targets will be enhanced and you'll learn to keep going until you reach them. No matter what.
Virtually every aspect of your mind, body and spirit are trained and tested through 50 hours of intense physical and mental training. By pushing you to your perceived limits, and then far beyond those limits, your concept of who you are and what's possible will be revolutionized.

Participants come from all walks of life with a common goal: Perseverance. Whether you're a Special Operations Candidate or a business professional, a firefighter or self-described regular person, you must prepare for this event. Our SEALFIT Online, Elite and Elite Plus are the perfect training tools for all of our events. Our daily workouts will challenge you physically and mentally and will be the cornerstone of your training prior to Kokoro Camp.
We have published updated Kokoro Camp Standards to help you understand just what you are getting into when you start your training for Kokoro.

It is important to complete the essay defining what your motivation is to attend this event and what you hope to get from it. You will also list your pre-requisite scores seen above. The Coaching Staff reads all of the essays before Kokoro - address it as such and be honest with your self-assessment and your WHY.
A Warning Order will go out to all attendees approximately 30 days prior to the event. It will contain specific instructions for check-in times. Generally check-in is approximately 8:00 AM on the first day of Kokoro. Read the Warning Order when it comes as that is the final word.
We recommend to fly into the following airports, Ontario (ONT), San Diego (SAN), John Wayne (SNA) and arrive the day before your Kokoro begins. Unfortunately we are no longer able to hold Kokoro at SEALFIT HQ - it is held at Vail Lake Resort in Temecula, CA of HWY 79. You are responsible for your transportation to and from our Vail Lake facility. For accommodations we recommend you book a hotel in Temecula, CA the nightbefore and after your Kokoro. Do NOT plan to fly or drive on Sunday after Kokoro.
