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.

Ratings and Reviews
This app is a gem filled with fitness knowledge.
An underrated app that actually has more in it than any actual fitness app I’ve ever had. This isn’t an app for logging your workouts. It’s an app for understanding and comprehending your workouts. Calculators and formulas are built into it.
There are nice progression charts and annual training routines.
It’s a little difficult to actually find a routine to follow though, as it seems you are expected to know how to create the balanced workout yourself after learning. So make sure you read and don’t expect a quick copy paste and follow this routine approach.
If this app released a re-skinned “civilian” focused version complete with workout programs to match its progression charts, it’ll probably be the best app on the market.
Thank you for developing this app. Helped me a lot.
I recommend this app to everyone. It is easy to use. You learn from videos and reading the instructions. It would be really cool if there were more videos and maybe 360 degree shootings.
Comprehensive guide for physical conditioning.
Excellent APP thoroughly explains all aspects of physical conditioning in a manner which applies to active military and civilians. If you're looking for a change in your workout routine and need to balance strength, flexibility and cardio this app provides superior descriptions and guidance.
