A physical “crucible” individual and team challenge which will prove that you are capable of 20 times more than you think you are.
Experience a permanent shift in your perspective and way of life by taking part in the SEALFIT 20X.
Over the course of this powerful 12 hour crucible event, our team of retired and reserve Navy SEALs, members of the military / Special Operations community and select number of SEALFIT certified coaches, will push you beyond your perceived limits.
This event is not for everyone.
The 20X is only for those people who are ready to take on the intense physical challenges and those who are ready for real change.
Our expert coaches will push your physical limits, build on your strengths and uncover your weaknesses. A 20X is not a mindless physical “beat down”, your SEALFIT coaches will use their years of training and experience to help guide you to the tools you need to overcome any obstacle, eradicate fear and tame your mind.
SEALFIT coaches use tested and proven methods to foster personal growth, elite level teamwork and authentic leadership.

"There are no words to express my gratitude to you and your team. I attended the UM Summit in November 2018 and then signed up for the 20X crucible in July. Doing the 20X this past weekend reinforced for me that I can beat my fear, ask for help and be the best version of myself. I look forward to improving myself every day, and being as Gandhi said, “the change you want to see in the world”. Through the 20X experience, I finally understand what it means to be that change."-Anita
"Four weeks ago a friend asked if I wanted a number to run in the Boston marathon. I hadn’t been training for a marathon but I was up for it. And in order to raise money for his charity I offered to do 10 push-ups at each of the race’s 42 kilometer points. Long story short I finished and did 450 push-ups. Took me 6:20 but I did it. People asked me what made me think I could do it and I said 20x. Plain and simple. So thanks."-Steve
"I was one of the Spring 2014 classmates for the SEALFIT 20X challenge. I just wanted to thank you for this great opportunity. There isn’t a price that could be made to account for all SEALFIT taught me. I can honestly say I feel like I can capture the world and become anything I put my mind to. I am truly blessed to be in control of my entire mind."-Michael Hall
"I turned 50 this year and wanted to take on a big challenge. 20X looked tough and I expected to be tested physically, but also hoped to learn about myself and become a better leader in everyday situations.What I learned from 20x was the strength you have working as a team. Over the course of the 12-hours myself and the other 26 participants were pushed to our limits, but with the great coaching we learned to support each other and work together. When I struggled with a challenge being too tough, others gave me strength and encouragement. I began to feel stronger while encouraging others. We became one team. If you are looking to improve who you are as a person and commit to living your life to the fullest, do not hesitate or you will never know what you could have accomplished!"-Casey Blake
"After 20+ years in the military, I needed to get ‘back to the basics’, grounding myself back to entry level fundamentals enabling mental, physical, and emotional growth…push myself to once again be comfortable with being uncomfortable.Your team’s ability to immerse a small group of people (many with no military background) into the “warrior culture’ over a 12 hour period is invaluable. The coaches facilitate an environment that teaches the class members to control their emotional response to outside stimuli and knock down their perceived metal or physical barriers. I am a better person, father, husband, athlete and military leader because I was able to reinforce my ‘why’. Thank you for opportunity to continue to learn."-Brian
"I am an Exercise Physiologist and work with hockey players to develop their skating skills, as well as strength and conditioning. The 20X Challenge was a life-changing event for me.Things such the importance of teamwork, communication, selflessness, power of the mind, box breathing and accountability has helped me gain so many tools which has changed all the lives of our students and training partners here. The SEALFIT team has changed our culture of how we train and how we treat others. Getting young men and women to understand that NO ONE is better than anyone else and that life is about helping each other get better together has been amazing to watch.HOOYAH!"-Jennifer Matras CSCS, President
