RASP = Ranger Assessment Selection Program = 8 Weeks... A "weed out" program developed by the US Army. Purpose? To assess the mental and physical capabilities of a candidate. They will try to BREAK YOU!
Author Tom Coffey will take you through a first hand experience:
"So you want to be a Ranger?"
This was the question the instructors posed time and time again (often in a sneering, mocking tone) during the 8-week, soul-crushing, misery-inducing, pain-festival, otherwise known as RASP.
RASP stands for "Ranger Assessment and Selection Program" and is the 8-week test one must pass to earn a Tan Beret and report for duty in the legendary 75th Ranger Regiment.
First, let me tell you about a typical day at RASP. The scorching Georgia sun bears down with unrelenting fury. No clouds in the sky offer solitude from either the heat or humidity. Sweat pours down my face, causing me to squint, as each drop seemed to find its way into my eyes. This was worse than the time I got tabasco sauce in my eyes.
“So, you want to be a Ranger?”
In that moment, those words were razor sharp, designed to slice self-doubt into us. Heavy with judgement, from a battle-hardened warrior.
“We have 8 weeks to break you all. And, believe me...we will.”

My name is Tom Coffey, former Army Ranger.
I am here to tell you that I am not a good athlete. But through hard work, I learned how to become a warrior athlete, something I will explain in a moment. I have successfully completed a rigorous martial arts training program in China, completed a weekend-long event based on the Navy SEAL hellweek, and served 3.5 years as an Army Ranger. I served my entire time with 2nd Ranger Battalion, and spent over two years carrying the SAW (squadautomatic weapon, aka light machine, aka lots of fun to shoot).
Prior to joining the Army, I had the privilege and honor of being coached by former Navy SEAL, Brad McLeod. Coach Brad is founder of SEALgrinderPT, and has been helping prepare folks for military service for over a decade. He is a world renowned mental toughness coach.
THREE RULES OF BEING A RANGER 1. Always look cool. 2. Never get lost. 3. If you get lost, look cool.
SEAL Grinder PT was founded in 2008 by Former Navy SEAL Brad McLeod. Starting out as a CrossFit Gym in Atlanta, Brad soon evolved his business to online training programs. In 2011 he self published FreakFrogman Workouts a 80 page eBook that was written for his son who wanted to become a Navy SEAL. Brad put everything he knew about training and mental toughness into this book. Now Brad lives with his wife and 2 children in Florida and runs SGPT full time. His primary focus is training others and raising funds for worthy charitable organizations.
