ENGAGE MARK DIVINE

Most people think of mental toughness when they imagine a Navy SEAL. They don’t expect the thoughtful, yoga-innovating, joking, and laughing professor of leadership named Mark Divine. After starting as a CPA, he switched careers and, at twenty-six, graduated as Honor Man (#1-ranked trainee) of SEAL BUD/S class number 170. Mark served for nine years total on active duty and eleven as a Reserve SEAL, retiring as Commander in 2011.

He entered a seven-year period of creativity where he started SEALFIT, a fitness company that prepared civilians for the physical AND mental/emotional demands of Navy SEAL-like lifestyle, co-founded the Coronado Brewing Company, built www.NavySEALs.com, the leading website for SEAL gear and information, and launched US Tactical, a government contracting business. He is the author of the Unbeatable Mind, Staring Down the Wolf, Way of the SEAL, 8 Weeks to SEALFIT, and KOKORO Yoga.
