As a novice, I was intimidated when I received this training course as a gift. John, Sam, Mike - all were excellent instructors and answered questions, told stories to illustrate real world scenarios, and kept everyone safe. You should have a good level of cardio and physical fitness for this course. If you can't run a half mile with a 40 lb ruck, you should bring yourself to that level of fitness before the class begins. I'll never forget the awesome people and experiences. Thanks WPS!
