Description

This course is your ultimate study guide to Marine boot camp. It won't teach you everything, that's your drill instructors job. What this course will do is get you physically and mentally prepared to show up to boot camp ready to learn. This course will cover…

RANK STRUCTURE- Learn to identify and describe all Marine Corps ranks, which you will constantly be tested on. 

MEMORIZING YOUR GENERAL ORDERS- At boot camp, you are required to memorize all 11 general orders, and recite them under pressure. Having them memorized before you get to boot camp will greatly benefit you. 

BASIC CUSTOMS AND COURTESIES- Knowing how to address the Marines you interact with at boot camp.

MINDSET AND MENTALITY- Developing the right mindset and mentality needed to learn the most from boot camp 

FITNESS- Show up to boot camp in shape...or suffer more. Boot camp will get you in shape, no matter what. But you risk injury if you do not prepare beforehand. 

NUTRITION- At boot camp, food is fuel. There is no time for luxury or comfort foods. 

The title “Marine” is not easily earned. The journey will be difficult. You will be tested in ways you never have been before. In the end, it comes down to your attitude. How bad do you want it? What are you willing to do to make it happen? To succeed, you must first prepare. That preparation starts right now. 

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone with serious intentions of joining the United States Marine Corps

Hi everyone! My name is Nate Elmore. I'm a 5 year veteran of the Marine Corps Reserve, a Podcaster, and Entrepreneur. Sharing information is one of my greatest passions in life. I regularly learn and share new things on my podcast, Achieving ALPHA, in my Marine Corps Career, and in my personal life. From the time I was a young boy, I've been fascinated with sports, including nutrition and training methods. For me, learning a new exercise routine or training method is exciting, and a great opportunity to Push the boundaries of what I'm capable of. Over the years, I've picked up quite a bit of knowledge and experience, and I'd love to share some of that with you.
