Elite Course Developed by Army Sergeant

Reveals Inside Secrets.

Introducing Basic Training University

Quick - What’s your biggest fear about basic training?

I’ve heard them all - and lived them all.

When it comes down to it, there’s really only a handful of fears when it comes to basic training.

And let’s be honest: everyone has the same exact fears to some degree.

The Top Four Fears

  • Your drill sergeant. He should scare the hell out of you. He is definitely NOT your friend and never will be.
  • Screwing up over something you could have known or should have known. This gets you and your platoon, squadron, or department smoked. No one likes a screw-up.
  • Failing. Or, getting recycled. Or, getting a crappy leftover job. After all that effort, that would suck, not to mention be embarrassing.
  • Not being up to military fitness standards.

What’s the answer to those fears? Preparation. Most new recruits don’t know WHAT TO DO to prepare for the most intense two months of their lives.

Here’s where that preparation starts:


  • WHAT TO EXPECT - and what the purpose of basic training really is. There is a very clear purpose for every crappy thing that will happen to you at basic.


Didn't think so.​ Don't feel bad, though. It's not really your fault.

You just haven't gotten the right information yet.​

That's about to change.​

For the past 15 years my mission has been helping new recruits get ready for basic training.

I can help YOU get ready for basic training. In fact, I can help you CRUSH IT at basic training.

I’ll even guarantee it. But more on that later.

“Just Get Through It”

You know, I hear noobs say all the time,

“I just want to ‘get through’ basic training.

I just want to survive.”

What they really mean is, “I want to fly under the radar and stay unnoticed.”

Getting "noticed" by your drill sergeant sucks.

I’ll teach you how to go unnoticed at basic and still get promotion points.

Basic Training University is designed to help you do more than survive. It’s designed to help you MASTER your basic training experience whether you’re heading to the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, or Coast Guard.

What Do You Want Out of Basic Training?

Think about it. What do YOU really want out of basic training? Do you just want to barely scrape by?

Or, do you want to graduate basic training with:

  • High Fitness Test Scores
  • Better Pay
  • Faster Promotions
  • Pride in your Accomplishment
  • Your Drill Sergeants barely knowing your name

Then you need Basic Training University.

Forget listening to your buddy from school, or trolling the interwebs for reliable information.

  • You'll waste a ton of time
  • You'll get a sketchy picture of what you really need to get ready
  • Plus, you'll get fed a bunch of useless myths that will only HOLD YOU BACK.

And your recruiter just doesn’t have the time to give you the one-on-one coaching that’s needed to get you ready for basic training.

Look, I know you’re scared. That makes sense: you don’t really know what to expect, other than getting yelled at, having your stuff thrown around the barracks, running til your legs fall off, and doing pushups until your arms are like noodles.

Did you know the average recruit will do more than 200 pushpups their FIRST DAY of BASIC?

Everyone’s scared. I know I was.

The answer to that fear? PREPARATION. That’s right. Getting ready. I’ll teach you everything you need to know to get ready - really ready.

I’ll help you turn your FEAR into FUEL.

My Story

Hi, I’m Sgt. Michael Volkin.

I created Basic Training University to help new recruits get fully prepared for basic training.

In the days just after 9/11 I knew I wanted to serve my country. I wanted to protect and defend our nation’s liberty. So, within 3 days after the towers fell, I walked into the recruiting office and signed my name.

But you know what? I really had NO IDEA what I was getting myself into.

I was eager, but clueless.

I was ready to serve, but I wasn’t ready for basic training.

Ultimately, I made it through basic by learning on the fly. It was the hardest thing I’d ever been through. That’s true of every recruit I’ve ever talked to!

And I had just completed my MASTER'S DEGREE and THESIS! 

The whole time I was wishing I had been more prepared. I wish I had known:

  • How to get "military" fit before getting to basic training
  • How to manage my drill sergeant's yelling
  • How to ace my fitness test
  • How to get better pay
  • How to qualify for promotions faster

I was definitely not ready. I just didn't have the information or training I needed.

During basic training, and after graduation, I was driven to make list after list of everything I wished I had known.

And when I left active service I ended up pulling all those notes together. Then, I interviewed thousands of retired and active duty service members to put together the most complete guide on the planet to acing basic training.

The result? Basic Training University.

It’s what you need to master basic training.

I don’t care what branch you’re heading into, what I’ll teach you is universal. It applies to all 5 military branches.

So, What Is Basic Training University?

Basic Training University is 9 videos totaling more than 4 hours of direct instruction on the preparation YOU need to deal with your fears and get ready for basic training. Plus you'll get access to hundreds of daily tips and more than 80 podcasts addressing individual questions.

It’s not just the result of my personal experience. It’s literally the result of over 5 months of on-base, real-world research and thousands of interviews. 

Here’s what’s been said about my training:

  • "Should be required reading." - ARMY.COM
  • "The most helpful book...ever." - Private Caselli
  • "A must read." -
  • "I'm extremely prepared now." - Private Jones

Here’s a breakdown of what you’ll get when you join Basic Training University.

What You’ll Get

Video 1: How to Develop Mental Toughness

Your body will be stressed beyond what you’ve ever been through. Double that for the mental stress. Your drill sergeant’s goal is to break you from bad habits and individual thinking so you can work as a high performing member of a team.

  • Channel anxiety and fear into high performance
  • How to get yelled at less by your drill sergeant
  • How to handle it when you do get yelled at

Video 2: How To Ace Your Fitness Test

Military fitness is a different animal than civilian fitness. I don’t care if you’re a star athlete, a gym rat, or a P.E. dropout, Physical Training (P.T.) is designed to tear you up. You need to know how you can get ready. Your fitness level can keep you out of trouble with your drill sergeant. But it will also help you be eligible for faster promotions and better pay.

Lots of recruits tell me how fit they are. But they don’t understand this: military fitness is a whole different ball game. You need to get ready for military fitness!

In this video:

  • I destroy popular fitness myths
  • I explain military exercises and stretches - and how they're different from anything you've seen before
  • I'll help you develop a personalized fitness plan

In this video I cover:

  • 6 Quick Fixes for running. most recruits have NO CLUE how to run. I'll teach you the techniques for the most efficient stride. Your drill sergeant isn't there to "coach" you.
  • Choosing the right shoe - and when to try shoes on
  • Addressing correct arch support (more comfortable running)

Video 5: How to Stay Fit During and After Basic Training

When we arrived in Iraq there were no gyms or facilities or “fitness equipment.” They made me the fitness instructor for our entire company. I had to design my fitness program around what we had in our tents and on our person.

And guess what? Our company’s fitness was so superior, I was awarded the Army Commendation Medal for my efforts!

If I can keep a company fit with not much more than rocks, sand, crates, and boxes, think of what I can do for your level of fitness!

In video 5, I’ll introduce you to my SECRET MILITARY FITNESS FORMULA called

  • "D"
  • "C"
  • "N"

(I told you it was secret!)

Video 6: How to Handle Non-military Business

Life in the civilian world doesn’t stop just because you’re at basic training. Troubles with your finances can keep you out of some of the better jobs, especially ones that require a higher security clearance. I’ll teach you the tips you need to:

  • Get your finances in order before you ship
  • Take care of non-financial matters
  • Know what to pack for basic training
  • Know what NOT to pack for basic training

Video 9: How to Get a Great Job after Basic Training

You’re not going to be in basic training forever. Get the job YOU want after graduation and after discharge. This video will help you come out on top.

Promises made during the recruitment process are not guaranteed. Your performance at basic training will have more impact on your job placement after graduation than the piece of paper where you signed your name.

In this video I’ll teach you:

  • Resume boosting secrets
  • How to construct a killer cover letter
  • Interview tips
  • How to dress for your interview

Why do you need Basic Training University?

So you’re not a statistic.

You don’t want to wash out. Or recycle. Across the board, nearly 10% of recruits fail basic training. No one likes to fail, but few things are as embarrassing as failing basic training.

Only Basic Training University gets you fully prepared to succeed at Basic Training. There’s nothing else like it.

Why else do you need Basic Training University?

So you can get better pay.

Your performance in basic training will directly affect your pay scale. And guess what? Basic Training University pays for itself because you will earn more points at basic, which gets you a raise and promoted sooner.

Think about it. Who doesn’t want better pay?!

Why is Basic Training University a NECESSITY and not just a luxury?

So you can get promoted faster.

Your friends and family back home will be watching you. You’ll make them proud by coming out on top at basic training. You’ll get the job YOU want, not the leftovers.

You’re already proud of our country.

Make your country proud of you.

Will It Work?

Don’t just take my word that it works! I’ve literally had thousands of new recruits take my training. Listen to what some of them have to say.

Every single one of my students is thrilled they took my advice in Basic Training University.

Male, female, Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard -- it works for everyone.

Basic Training University will give you the tools you need to ace basic training.

In fact, I’m so confident it will help you, I’ll make you this guarantee.

If you order my course and take my time-tested advice and it doesn’t help you during basic training, I’ll offer you a full refund!

But you really have to take my advice! Not just listen to it. Or agree with it. You have to DO it!

There is absolutely no risk to you. Love it, or I’ll refund your hard-earned money.

So, What’s It Worth?

If I trained you personally one on one, I’d have to charge more than $2000 or more plus travel expenses.

That’s a lot of coin! And you know what? It would be worth every penny to you and your military career.

And believe me, I’ve had more requests than I can count to travel across the country to personally train new recruits. These requests have come from high school jocks, from academics and book worms, as well as from freaked out moms and dads.

Every one of them understood that acting fast on the right training was essential to success at basic training.

The problem is, I just can’t be in that many places at once.

But my training videos can. You can get instant access today to the 9 videos that will change your basic training experience.


In addition to the 9 videos and more than 4 hours of instruction, you’ll also get access to my podcasts where I answer questions sent in by new recruits just like you.

Here are a few of the most popular questions:

  • Can my drill sergeant hit me?
  • Can I snack at basic training?
  • Will I have to go through the "gas chamber?"
  • Does my drill sergeant really hate me?
  • Can I get mail at basic training?

What’s more, I’ll add you to my VIP email list to receive my Basic Training Tip of the Day. Sometimes the smallest tip on just the right day makes all the difference.
