Boot Camp Basic Training

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to attend a Military Boot Camp?
To see what it is like, find out if you could make it or not. Maybe your just looking
to push yourself to new levels, expand your horizons, hone your leadership and
survival skills, but don't have the next 4 years available to give to the military. Or
your thinking about enlisting in the military and want to see what it is like before
signing the next 4 years away. Ex-Military wanting to relive past experiences. I
know. That's why I started this program.  

The Tactical Team we have assembled at Northern Firearms Training, with all their
combined Experience, Training & Leadership Skills over all facets of advanced
military and Law Enforcement instruction and training, ensure the proper
Knowledge, Skills and Attitude necessary to make your training experience as real
and life like as permitted in the allotted time. No one in the world can give you
what 8 to 12 weeks of real boot camps can in only 2 weeks, but we come close.

Our Advanced series of Tactical Classes are not basic firearms courses but are
designed for the experienced shooter in good health. We teach Tactical Classes in
most aspects of military training and individual classes are listed on each page.
(pistol, rifle, shotgun, etc.) and can be taken individually.

BOOT CAMP
BOOT CAMP is open to citizens of all nations.
********************************************************************************
Level 1 PUSH PAST THE LIMITS (week 1 now it hits the fan)
The Northern Firearms Training's  "Boot Camp" level 1 includes Hell Night,
Physical Training, Rappelling/Climbing and Fastrope, a Survival Course, Defensive
Hand to Hand and First Aid Training.

Hell Night description: The Hell Night adventure "Belly of the Beast" is an intense
24-hour challenge and endurance course derived from Navy SEAL "Hell Week" and
instructed by a cadre of hand-picked Veteran Military and Advanced Law
Enforcement Combat Training Instructors.  

***Hell Night is part of the Course and begins on Sunday.***
The sole purpose of Hell Night is to show you what’s inside you and prove that
everyone is capable of 10-times more than they think they are.

This is not a mindless day of push ups and wind sprints. It is a very calculated day
that will test you to the very core both mentally and physically.

Everyday life becomes easier because you have just been through the hardest 24-
hours that most people ever will go through. You survived and learned that big
problems in life are now little ones. You have learned how to attack the small
pieces of big problems and only the small pieces that really matter.

Your self-confidence and self esteem go through the roof. This is
mental strength,
and while physical strength is great and very necessary,
mental strength is the
tool of success. A strong mind allows you to do far more than a strong body.

There’s very little love during the first 24-hours we’ll be together and you may
wonder what you were thinking to sign up, but at 0700 on Monday morning, we
couldn't knock the smile off your face if we tried as your sense of accomplishment
is overwhelming.

Your teamwork and leadership skills will dramatically improve as you’ll be forced
to pull it together quickly as a class.

You’ll receive dynamic instruction in hand to hand armed and unarmed combat and
other military skills you cannot get anywhere else.

You’ll execute a class mission in full camouflage at night which will require you to
use everything you were taught.

Anyone can do this. It’s all in your head and heart.
We will change your life forever and you’ll never regret doing it, that’s our personal
guarantee

Why was the program created?
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to attend a Military Boot Camp?
To see what it is like, find out if you could make it or not. Maybe your just looking
to push yourself to new levels, expand your horizons, hone your leadership and
survival skills, but don't have the next 4 years available to give to the military. Or
your thinking about enlisting in the military and want to see what it is like before
signing the next 4 years away. Ex-Military wanting to relive past experiences. I
know. That's why I started this program.  

Why should I do this?
The reasons are many. Primarily it's an awesome alternative to the usual fitness
center where you join and rarely see results. Instead, at Boot camp you'll put forth
110% effort and in return you'll get excellent results and camaraderie that you
typically won’t find in a gym. Jim English has reputation for having the toughest
program with the best results. Most students don't realize that the mental make
over they receive is just as impacting as the physical make over!

Do you recommend the warm-up training?
YES, even for students entering the program with an solid fitness background will
benefit from a minimum of 1 week of warm-up training. More is recommended if
you’re a bit “rusty”. Warm-up training gets you used to exercises, the instructors
and works out some of the “kinks” ahead of time.

Do I have to purchase any additional gear?
No, a uniformed will be provided for you upon registering at camp. A list of all
required gear you must bring will be sent to you after registering for camp.

Do I have to fill out any paperwork?
Yes, All of your paperwork is completed when you register!

Where & When is it held?
• Classes are held in Vanderbilt, Mi.
• Traditional 1 week classes meet from 6:00am till dusk daily.
• The Boot camp is 1 - 2 weeks long, we offer “pre-training” with  Fitness or
Bodycamp, designed to maximize your results and increase your chances of
successfully graduating from Boot camp.

Where do we sleep?
This is a Military Style Boot Camp,There-for you will sleep in 15 person tents (you
have space, we only place 8 max students per tent), men and women in different
tents. On Heavy Duty Extra Large cots (all bedding is included) Classes and meals
are held in the main large tent.
To extend the training season, we will also be using 4 season, 5th Wheel Bunk
House RV Trailers that sleep 5 students each for the spring and late fall Camps.

How do I get there?
Most people fly in. We will pick you up at an airport and bring you back after camp.
You can fly into Traverse City or Pellston, Michigan International Airports. You
may also drive.

Do I have to get my hair cut?
No, We do not cut your hair, but we do ask you to remove any piercing you my
have due to safety concerns.

Can I leave the camp if i desire?
Yes, this is not jail, You can leave if you think it is too hard for you. We can not
keep you here if you do not want to stay. If you have to leave due to an
emergency at home, arrangements will be made to accommodate you.
