Pick any date in October to complete the TEAMWORK Fitness Challenge! Click here to download your virtual bib where you fill in your results and share on social media – the QR code on the bib will link to the form for you to submit your numbers.

Share your photos and videos to the NSF directly you can send via email to teamwork@navysealfoundation.org or on social with hashtags #NSFFitnessChallenge #ChallengeYourself  #ANationofSupport #Teammates  #NavySEALs #NavySEALfoundation

We encourage people to form teams to help with fundraising, and also leverage their existing teams (like companies and corporations) to host an event or otherwise participate. The intent is also for everyone to sign up with a buddy* to perform the various exercises (one works, one counts). This is in keeping with the spirit of “swim buddies” during SEAL training.

* We will have volunteers available to count for those who may not have a buddy.

There is a section on your bib to record the number of push-ups and sit-ups completed at the end of the three-minute time period. This section of the bib will be handed to volunteers to be entered into the scoring system.
Pull-ups – Overhand grip, dead hang start, chin over bar, no kipping.


Push-ups – Feet together, toes on the ground, hands shoulder width apart, start at full lockout, down to touch chest to buddy’s fist and back up.


Sit-ups – Cross arms on chest, shoulder blades touching the ground, knees bent, touch arms to thighs, and back down, buddy can hold feet.


For the sit-ups and push-ups you and your buddy will alternate performing each exercise. Your rest will be the 3 minutes you are counting for your buddy. There will be a 10 minute break before the start of the 3 mile run.

Max dead hang pull-ups will be a pre-event activity. There will be a section on your bib to indicate that you have completed the pull-ups and enter your final number.

Participants make a $25 donation to register for the event. Then, they are encouraged to set up a fundraising page to give others an opportunity to support the NSF. If you raise $100, you earn a TEAMWORK Fitness Challenge official t-shirt and your $25 registration fee will be credited toward that $100.

If you registered for San Diego you will receive your lanyard and challenge coin at the finish line of the three-mile run. If you reach the $100 fundraising level T-shirts can be picked up at the event.

Global participants will receive their challenge coin shipped at the beginning of November when all participants have finished the challenge. When reaching the $100 fundraising level, T-shirts will be shipped directly to the individual at the address entered when they registered.

The higher level gifts will be shipped to the qualified participants after the event in early November.

$100 – NSF TWFC Branded Tshirt
$250 – NSF Branded Hat
$500 – NSF Branded Yeti Tumbler

Top fundraisers in each location will be awarded a special incentive branded item from Luminox.
