October 26, 2022 2 min read






    Modern life is full of stressful situations, exhaustion from long hours of work and less sleep, hypersensitivity, and anxiety disorders. By including yoga or meditation in your life, you will improve the value and, possibly, the quantity of your life.

    In today’s episode, we are joined by a best-selling Author, Philanthropist, Podcaster, Entrepreneur, Coach, and Founder and CEO of SEALFIT, Mark Divine. He talks about his experiences with going on a false journey and finally finding his real calling. He shares what sparked the realization and made him pivot to a new path altogether. He also shares the many lessons he has learned in the Navy and how he passes them on to other people now.

    Mark is the founder and leader of several highly successful enterprises, including SEALFIT (Physical and mental training), Unbeatable Mind, LLC (Executive Mastery Development), NavySEALs.com, and USCrossFit. He also co-founded the Coronado Brewing Company in Coronado, CA.

    SEALFIT was developed from the Navy's SEAL candidate Mentoring program, which took the pass rate for Navy SEAL candidates from 33% to over 80% on the Physical Screening Test at Navy Boot Camp. This program was instrumental in helping the Navy grow the size and quality of the SEAL force. 

    Mark's other professional experience includes 20 years as a Navy SEAL officer, retiring as a Commander in 2011. Also, 4 years as a CPA with the firm now known as PriceWaterhouseCoopers prior to his joining the Navy. As a reserve SEAL, he led several prominent projects, including the Navy's internal study on whether to support the invitation of USMC into the Special Operations Command.

    Mark served as Adjunct Professor of Leadership at the University of San Diego and has authored four books: "The Way of the SEAL," published by Reader's Digest Publishing, "8 Weeks to SEALFIT" and "Kokoro Yoga" by St. Martin's Press, "Unbeatable Mind" and the "SEALFIT Training Guide," both self-published.
