What to Expect

The only thing stopping you is yourself! Jack Walston has personally mentored and trained young men who are now either in BUD/S training or completed it and gone on to become members of the U.S. Navy SEAL Teams.

Experience first hand what BUD/S candidates endure! As a student of the SEAL Special Forces Challenge Camp you will undergo intense training led by former Navy SEALs and other members of the Special Forces community. The SEAL Special Forces Challenge Camp is a division of The Original SEAL Physical Training Course, Inc., based in Houston, Texas. The course was developed and designed by former U.S. Navy SEAL veteran Jack Walston (president of SEAL P.T.).

After having completed BUD/S as well as years of other training and service in the SEAL Teams, Jack felt it would be a waste not to pass on his experience to others. The challenge course is designed to give you insight into the true nature of Navy SEAL training and the level of endurance needed to complete it.

For the special warfare candidate or for those who just want to test their steel. Don’t be a quitter, don’t ring the bell, come and experience the challenge!
