Work one-on-one with a BTE coach

Our 1-on-1 coaching program for SOF candidates offers individualized physical and mental training for aspiring operators. We will work privately with you based on career goals, deployment dates, and individual strengths and weaknesses.


Custom training plans include everything you'd need:

  • Individualized movement work to reduce injury risk and improve efficiency 
  • Strength training to ensure you are structurally balanced and resilient 
  • Work capacity training based on the demands of your job, selection, or event that you're training for
  • Comprehensive energy systems development, including water comp training (when applicable) and individualized pacing and technique feedback 
  • Nutrition and supplementation guidance to optimize recovery, body-comp, and performance

All training plans are based on the individual: their goals, timeline, and specific strengths and weaknesses.


You'll receive individualized feedback and reading assignments, and you'll have an ongoing dialogue with your coach to dial in your mental performance over time. Our goal is to help you learn how your mind works, give you tools and expose you to circumstances that allow for growth, and provide feedback that helps you become more resilient week after week, month after month.  


BTE coaches are invested in the success of their clients. Our 1-on-1 coaching program for SOF selection prep includes:

  • Weekly check-ins with feedback on your performance, progress, and questions 
  • Unlimited email access to us throughout the process

We work as a team to pool all of our experience and expertise for your benefit. Learn more about our coaches' backgrounds here.


Due to the time-intensive nature of 1-on-1 coaching for SOF selection, we only work with a small number of clients at a time. In order to ensure fit, we screen potential clients via our application process. 

If you're selected, the cost is $300 per month, with a six-month minimum commitment (roughly, we'll work with your ship dates, event timelines, etc).


“I just got selected in the May SFAS class. Thank you for the great programming; the workouts definitely translated well to the work we had to do.”

“Training for SOF selection with BTE was instrumental in my success in RASP, Ranger School, and Battalion in general. The program set me up in incredible shape, perfectly suited for the trials of RASP and later Ranger School. Although selections are never fun, I always was able to feel confident in my physical abilities, as I had done all of the graded events prior. I had no difficulty not only meeting, but exceeding the standard. Thanks for all your guidance and support, helped me get to where I am today.”

“I have worked with BTE for more than 18 months and they have helped me prepare physically and mentally for the rigors of selection through an intelligent and systematic approach”

"I just wanted to let you know that I've passed the hills phase known as aptitude. Endurance was the final test 64k in 20hrs with a 60lb. pack then food and water to sustain myself on top. Self navigated across Brecon, this was without doubt the hardest test of physical and mental strength I have faced. As a testament to your programming I am injury-free and in a great headspace, none of the tasks seemed unachievable even when fatigued. Over 220 applicants started and we are already down to 42. Thank you for being part of the journey, its been awesome to train under your guidance for nearly 2 years."

“One of the most underrated reasons people don’t make it through BUDS is injury. You can be the fittest dude in the class, but if you break your leg or tear up your shoulder you will get left behind. BTE not only gets you in great shape, they actively teach and practice injury prevention. That is by far what I appreciate most from BTE. If I was on my own I would have over trained, under recovered, and would have gotten hurt and been washed out of BUDS. BTE aren’t building 100m sprinters (although I’m sure they can) they are building operators, and it takes a unique kind of coach to do that.”
