What is Hell Day?

Hell Day immerses you into an intense team environment, providing: credentialed instructors from various Special Operations backgrounds, rubber training rifles, tactical litters, large training logs, challenging scenarios, physical & mental stress, and more; replicating a training environment similar to Navy SEAL BUD/S Hell Week, USAF A&S, Army Ranger/Special Forces Assessment & Selection, etc. 

Students are first administered a Fitness Test, evaluating proper form & assessing 1.5 mile run times, max push-ups, pull-ups & sit-ups, a 500/250 yard swim (students not seeking careers with water requirements may choose not to participate in swim evaluations), followed by two sets of 25 meter underwater swim evolutions. Following the fitness test, students are exposed to strenuous environmental elements such as: cold water submersion, stress induced from instructor cadre, team runs & ruck marches, challenging tasks & timelines, and more. Weaknesses & strengths are exposed in each student throughout the event, providing real-time proof/analysis of whether the student possesses necessary traits to become a Special Operator. Traits we analyze:

  • physical performance
  • resiliency/will-power

  • leadership ability

  • task-performing accuracy & precision under stress

  • communication under stress

  • confidence accomplishing tasks under the water

  • cognitive learning

  • memory retention

Hell Day students quickly learn that only together, as one unit, will they finish the course. Students often have never met each other prior to participating in Hell Day, and often finish the night as close friends, establishing an unbreakable bond. The day & night is full of challenges that cannot be accomplished alone! Many Hell Day students have gone on to accomplish their dreams of becoming Navy SEALs, Pararescuemen, Combat Controllers, Army Rangers, Green Berets, TACP, and more. Will YOU be next?
