Goal and career-specific training programs that adapt to your needs and schedule


Our proprietary algorithm compares your fitness to where it needs to be to do your job or accomplish your goal and automatically individualizes your program


As your fitness improves your program adjusts to consistently challenge you. Our training programs adapt your training while keeping you on track with your long term goals.  


Every training session includes a mental skill emphasis to help build your mind as well as your body. Every training block & session includes an in-depth overview, so you know exactly why and how to get the most out of each training session. 

+ Understand your weaknesses and target them

The BTE Training App automates many of the processes we use as coaches. It will assess your strengths and weaknesses and create a semi-individualized & goal-specific program based on your goals. Our fitness algorithm provides an in-depth overview of where you need to focus your training efforts. Working with BTE coaches, we'll use that data to adjust your training program to maintain strengths and improve weaknesses.

+ Build mental skills

Every training session includes a specific mental skill focus. Daily lessons help you build mental skills to become more resilient and capable week after week, month after month. 

+ Adjust workouts based on your schedule

Change your weekly structure, and pause training when needed. Whatever your schedule, the program can adapt to fit it.

+ Goal-specific training programs

Course-specific SOF selection prep, active-duty operator fitness, and fire and law enforcement specific programs are available.

+ Learn about the 'why' behind your training sessions

Learn why specific methods and training sessions are being assigned to you and how they will help you achieve your goals.

+ Track progress and get individualized guidance for every training session

PR tracking, suggested weights, running and rucking speeds, and heart rate zones based on your specific capabilities help you get the most out of every training session.

+ Automatic adjustments

Show up and do the work; the app takes care of the rest. You'll be guided to review and adjust your strategies based on your physical and mental performance.


Yes. Instead of an arbitrary or one-size-fits-all approach based on a goal that makes a ton of assumptions, your goals are defined by your career path or desired capability. From there, the training is individualized based on your current fitness level. 

So, if there are two people training for the same goals, the person with a huge endurance background doesn’t get the same program as the individual who is incredibly strong, but hasn’t been doing much endurance training. This leads to far more effective training based on you, not just your goals. 

Due to the individualization process that app uses to create your training program, there are hundreds of different training programs. However, there are five main tracks:

  1. SOF Selection
    1. You are preparing for a military SOF (any branch) or FBI / CIA selection process. 
  2. Operator 
    1. You are currently an operator looking to improve fitness across the board, stay healthy, and perform well when operational. 
  3. LEO 
    1. You work in law enforcement (police, sheriff, homeland security, FBI, etc) or are preparing to work in this field. 
  4. Fire
    1. You work as a firefighter (urban or wildland) or are preparing to work in this field. 
  5. Civilian
    1. Your job doesn’t rely on your physical performance, or if it does, it falls outside the categories listed. Regardless of your occupation, you want to be capable of excelling at any physical task while becoming more mentally and emotionally resilient.  

Once you choose a track, you’ll work through the on-boarding questions and assessments to build a program based on your goals, and overall fitness.

How many days you train each week depends on what you’re training for and how fit you are. Regardless, you can always ‘pause’ the program to catch up, skip workout days, reduce the volume of a workout, and adjust the schedule on the fly. All of these options make it easy to adjust your training when life happens.

Each training session provides an expected completion time and is also labeled to help you decide which ones to save for the days when you’re fresh, and which you can knock out on busier days or when you’re a little more fatigued.   

You can easily look ahead to preview what’s coming up and adjust the training schedule accordingly. You can adjust your training in three ways: 

  1. Adjust: You can adjust which training sessions are assigned to each day in the next week. This allows you to adjust training based on your schedule. 
  2. Pause: Programs are assigned when you need them, not on a never ending loop. If you miss a few days or are on vacation for a week you can easily pick up where you left off. When you need a new program it will show up. 
Adjusting workouts requires an understanding of the stressors involved in the PT session. In *most* cases, unit pt sessions aren't that taxing compared to the work that you're doing for SOF prep, so you can think of them as random work capacity sessions.
It's usually best to manage them by coasting through them as much as you can without drawing negative attention to yourself so that you can get easy aerobic volume from them while saving as much of your energy as possible for your structured SOF prep workouts. In the cases where they're legitimately hard, you may need to adjust the volume of your SOF prep workouts to account for the increased recovery demand.
However, if you're regularly finding that your unit PT's are highly draining and you're not attached to a SOF unit, it's probably a good indicator that you're generally lacking in fitness and have a relatively long runway in front of you to build work capacity and a bigger aerobic foundation.

I’ve been using this program for about 5 months so far and I am in the best shape of my life despite having played SEC Football years prior. I love the assessment aspect of the program where you’re constantly working on your limiting factor. The coaches are also super responsive and more than willing to help. I have tried several different SOF prep programs but this is by far the best and has given me great results. I’m just 2 months my 1.5 mile time went from 11:30 to 9:45 and my calls have all improved as well.

I’ve been using this app for about 6 months now under the FBI HRT track. Recently took my FBI PFT at the academy and earned one of the highest scores in my class. As long as you’re willing to really put in the work in the gym and with the mental skills BTE provides, you will have no choice but to succeed.


Best and most productive training I’ve done

When I was an athlete in college I thought I was training to the utmost I could. Now that I’m training to join the SOF world, and found BtE, I’ve realized how much I’ve been missing. Using their program I have gotten in the best shape I have been in years. I have seen improvement all over the board from cardio to strength. With the help of their book and this app they have opened my world to a whole new way of working out.


Masters of Their Craft

A classic love story. I knew when I stumbled upon their Instagram page that this was something different. This isn’t the “GRIND TILL YOU CANT STOP GRINDING” Yelling from the roof tops system that is popular today. This is a highly calculated, measurable, scientific approach to attaining a very specific goal. I’ve done CrossFit, Tactical Barbell, Ironmans/triathlons, SOFLETE and endless physio for injuries. As someone that works on a very physically demanding team and with my speciality in emergency medicine, I take a very academic/critical approach to evaluating any programming I choose in order to ensure no time is wasted. As cliché as it sounds, The programming that these guys offer is without a doubt at the tip of the spear in their field. They are fully dedicated to their work and after reading their excerpts on Instagram, listening to the podcast and reading the book, I wholeheartedly trust them in providing what I need to reach my goals physically and mentally (which means a high level of physical performance without career stopping injuries, which not everyone else can offer in the world of special operations preparation programming). Without a doubt, I’ve seen measurable progress in both my personal life and my career since applying their principles. Their material is relevant whether you are in a civilian role, first responder, Reg force military or pursuing special operations. I’ve already begun recommending their material to coworkers and friends in all fields. I trust them because they demonstrate a high level of attention to detail and they have done the work to go far deeper than surface level in understanding every physical movement, training strategy and mental model that they breakdown and recommend. They are truly offering a product that nobody else in their field is offering. I know that they will continue to grow and evolve their product and and I can’t recommend them enough. If this review sounds suspiciously too good to be true, put their product to the test and you’ll be as impressed as I was.


Excellent app

Have been using the app for two months and already have seen improvements in strength, mobility, and mindset. I look forward to my workouts and mental practices every day. Workouts are challenging but totally doable. Overall, a great site.

Serious training targeting your weaknesses. Not just physical, this program trains your mind in the process as well – something that you might appreciate when dealing with hardships outside the training as well.

Programming is simple and demanding. Every session is challenging. The fitter you get (surprisingly fast), the harder the training. Don’t expect a feel good training app that reinforces your fitness biases. Signing up, you should be dedicated to your goals. Time-wise as well. In return you get scary good programming, tools to handle it, and ultimately results. Provided you put in the work.


Trust the process

The coaches have a scientific approach. They understand the body and how to train the right way. Don’t be sold by imitation coaches and quick fixes.

These guys are the real deal. Read the book. Do what they say. You’ll benefit if you listen to their advice. No question.

Trust the process.

All-Emcompassing SOF preparation

Gone are the days of “110%, 110% of the time.” BTE has honed in on the new age of training. Smart, methodical, calculated training based on your specific needs. Whatever your training goals are, BTE will help you reach them. However, when it comes to SOF and beyond, the physical elements are arguably just as if not less important than the mental aspect. With daily mental practices, they train your mind for whatever may come your way. From learning to listen to yourself, to taking charge of the voice in your head, they prepare you for life in a way I have never experience before. I’d give 10/5 if I could!


Comprehensive and applicable to every area of your life

Excellent training programme! The experienced coaches produce a programme that gives results. The sessions are challenging and may seem tough (because they are) but this is buttressed by the mental skills application. Focusing on these skills during every training session helps you dig deeper and push through.

I use these skills in my daily live as well. Long list of tasks to do at work or home? Break it down into chunks and focus on them piece by piece. Feeling as though you want to give up in the middle of x? Focus on your why, and do your best for the next few minutes and persist. I could go on and on but wouldn’t.

15/10 will recommend!
