• SEALs Team Training
On the first morning of Navy training, before the sun has risen, the class reports to “The Grinder” for an abrupt introduction to the selection process. During this evolution, called Grinder PT, trainees are put through a series of grueling exercises while being soaked with cold water and forced to coat their bodies with sand. On the Grinder, the weak links begin to disappear and the survivors begin to come together as a team. SEALs Team Training is a high intensity group class developed and taught by combat veteran Navy SEALs. For a venue, the SEALs replace the Grinder with Exceed’s state-of-the-art functional fitness studio, and for motivation, they replace cold water and sand with instruction and encouragement. Inspired by actual training, the workout sessions are designed to foster teamwork and competition in order to create an intense workout experience that delivers -caliber results. Trainees are assigned to small teams that compete against each other in a series of physical challenges, and, as always, it pays to be a winner. Advanced levels only.
