David Goggins's Biography

David Goggins, a retired Navy SEAL, stands as the sole member of the U.S. Armed Forces to have completed SEAL training (including two Hell Weeks), graduated as Enlisted Honor Man from the U.S. Army Ranger School, and completed Air Force Tactical Air Controller training.

An accomplished endurance athlete, Goggins has completed more than seventy ultra-distance races, often placing in the top-five, and is a former Guinness World Record holder for completing 4,030 pull-ups in seventeen hours.

A sought-after public speaker, he’s traveled the world sharing his philosophy on how to master the mind. When he’s not speaking, he works as an Advanced Emergency Technician in a big city Emergency Room and, during the summer, as a wildland firefighter in British Columbia.

All of the awards, medals, accolades and magazine articles mean nothing to David. That’s not why he does what he does. Although David has raised a lot of money and awareness for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, none of this recognition is relevant to him. He’s not trying to be number one in the world. He’s not interested in how many races he’s run. He doesn’t keep track of the miles he’s gone. There’s no scoreboard.

Instead, it’s all about achieving his personal best and pushing himself well past his comfort zone. David chooses to run the toughest races and put himself through some of the hardest military training programs in the country for no other reason than to see what he’s made of. For him, physical and mental suffering are a journey of self-discovery, no other experience makes him feel more clear, focused and alive.
