What is Optimal Readiness? 


A performance enhancement system utilizing mental skills training and periodized comprehensive physical conditioning programs to safely develop transferable strength, durability, and resilience.

This readiness system is comprised of high-performance mindset development and coaching derived from the experiences and tacit knowledge gained from an extensive career in special operations to optimize performance.  

Who will be coaching me?

In addition to his operational experience, Coach C has held numerous instructor positions and leadership roles throughout Naval Special Warfare (NSW) ranging from the Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S) schoolhouse in Coronado, CA, to the NSWs Training Detachment where he assisted in teaching and evaluating his fellow SEALs in Land Warfare tactics, techniques, and procedures in preparation for deployments overseas. 


Coach C was also hand-selected to help lead the Navy's Warrior Toughness Program, a Navy-wide human performance initiative arming enlisted sailors and junior officers with the tools needed to perform their duties and responsibilities under stress. 


What makes Optimal Readiness different?

Coach C possesses both tacit knowledge and first-hand experience in training and preparing for worst-case scenarios and operating in high-risk environments.
