Retired Navy SEAL, Endurance Athlete and Motivational Speaker
The odds were stacked against David Goggins making anything of himself. He grew up in an abusive household, barely graduated high school, and struggled with serious health issues, but he not only became a Navy SEAL, the most elite unit in the American military, he is the only member of the U.S. Armed Forces to complete SEAL training (including two Hell Weeks), the U.S. Army Ranger School (where he graduated as Enlisted Honor Man) and Air Force tactical air controller training.
A few years later he became one of the greatest endurance athletes in the world. David has completed multiple ultramarathons, triathlons, and ultra triathlons, setting new course records and regularly placing in the top five. David also set a Guinness World Record for the most number of pull-ups in a 24 hour period completing 4,030 in 17 hours.
His achievements made him the subject of a lead feature in Runner’s World, where he was named “Running Hero”. Outside Magazine named him “The Fittest (Real) Man in America.” The Navy SEALs tagged him as their poster boy and lead recruiter.
In November, 2015, he was the subject of the New York Times Bestseller, LIVING
WITH A SEAL, and since leaving the military he’s become a sought after public speaker. He’s spoken to numerous professional sports teams, Fortune 500 companies and other large organizations in both the public and private sector.
