Navy SEAL training is no longer just for the world’s toughest sailors. More team-building courses designed by retired Special Operations soldiers are popping up around the country, allowing civilians—including top-notch athletes—to test their mettle. Here’s how some notable teams fared on their training days.

U.S. Olympic Sailing

America’s best amateur sailors lived through “Hell Afternoon,” a four-hour session involving 200-plus-pound log carries and near-freezing water. Only 18 of 41 athletes finished.

Maryland Basketball

Michigan Football

Last spring, Wolverines Coach Brady Hoke sent 22 of his seniors to the SEALs Special Warfare Center in Coronado, Calif. After a four-hour workout in cold, wet sand, his players knew the meaning of the SEALs’ Hell Week mantra: “Embrace the suck.”
