Dear New Recruit,
How would you like to ship off to basic loaded with confidence - knowing you had the “cheat codes” to ace basic training?
What if those “cheat codes” could help you:
And, if they could be yours without breaking any laws or codes, would you download them?
Hi. I’m Sergeant Michael Volkin, and I’m the creator of Basic Training University.
It’s the online course I created that gives you the “cheat codes” you need to beat basic training...and it can be yours without violating any codes or breaking any laws.
But before I tell you how to get your hands on Basic Training University, I want you to know why I created it.
It all started with 9/11/2001...the day the Twin Towers fell and my life changed forever.
I know 9/11 changed the lives of ALL Americans. But allow me to tell you how it changed my life. Allow me to reveal you why after 9/11 I made it made it my personal mission to help new recruits discover how to “beat” Basic Training.
You see, they were still pulling bodies from the rubble of the Twin Towers when I walked into my recruiter’s office and signed my name on the dotted line.
Keep in mind, military service had never even been on my radar.
But after 9/11, I was mad as hell and I was ready to serve my country and protect our freedom.
Like so many in September, 2001, I felt a duty to defend our country, our way of life, and the liberty we all love.
Now, keep in mind:
I didn’t fancy myself as some kind of natural-born badass.
I didn’t consider myself Bin Laden's worst nightmare.
I didn’t even come from a military-minded family.
Truth is, I had just completed my master’s degree and written my thesis. I was on my way to living the life of my dreams!
I felt something inside me...a stirring that said my country’s needs were more urgent than my own dreams.
Some may call it “sacrifice.” But to me, it didn’t feel like “sacrifice.” It was just my duty.
You value our liberties and our way of life - just as I do.
You have a contribution to make - just like I did.
And you’re ready...ready to serve our country...just as I was.
Whether you choose the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, or the National Guard, you’re ready to serve...just like I was.
But let me tell you something. I had a problem I didn’t even know I had.
I’m willing to bet you’re in the same boat.
The ink hadn’t even dried on my signature when the questions started to hit me:
“What have I done?”
“Do I have what it takes to make it?”
“Will I survive?”
I was starting to get nervous.
Just to keep it real...I was flat-out scared.
But...I knew I had to make it through basic training first!
I’d heard stories, seen videos...
I was scared of my drill sergeant.
I was scared I’d get my platoon in trouble by screwing up.
I was scared I’d embarrass my family.
I was afraid I’d be “that guy”...the one who couldn’t cut it.
I did know one thing: I sure as hell did NOT want to fail...not when duty called.
So you want to know what I did?
I started looking for tips & tricks...the “cheat codes” that could get me through by getting me ahead.
I knew time wasn’t on my side. A voice in my head kept saying, “Tick tock, private.”
I started by asking my recruiter. But he was so busy he couldn’t help. He had some quick, canned tips, but nothing helpful.
Next I checked out some online forums.
I found a few helpful tricks, but I also found a ton of contradictory advice...and a sh*tload of obvious exaggeration. It ended up being a big freaking waste of time.
So...I figured I’d just have to wing it.
I got in as good shape as I could and waited nervously for my ship date.
Well, my ship date finally arrived and off I went.
You guessed it: I discovered how under-prepared I was. Some of my worst fears came true.
My drill sergeant was a piece of work. There seemed to be no rhyme or reason for his antics. He’d scream at us constantly. We could never do anything right. And he’d drop guys (pushups) for no reason. Could NOT figure that guy out.
What’s more, I thought I was in pretty good shape, but I found out I wasn’t in MILITARY shape.
There was a constant FEAR of being the slowest or the weakest guy in our platoon.
And then, there was so much to LEARN!
I thought of myself as a pretty smart guy. After all, I had a master’s degree!
But at basic, you have to learn fast! And under CRAZY PRESSURE.
And if you screw up or give the wrong answer, your whole platoon gets smoked.
No one wants to be THAT guy!
It was the hardest thing I’d ever been through: physically, emotionally, even spiritually.
I’d never been so exhausted, under THAT much pressure, and expected to learn and perform at such a high level.
What’s worse, I’d never doubted myself so much!
It didn’t take long for me to realize that there was SO much I could have done to get ready for basic IF I HAD ONLY KNOWN.
I wished I had known what to do to get my body prepared for MILITARY FITNESS.
I discovered a boat-load of information I could have memorized BEFORE arriving at basic training: military jargon, acronyms, and general orders.
It wasn’t too long before I started getting the hang of it. My “higher” education actually helped me!
In time, I discovered how to stay off the drill sergeant’s naughty list. I discovered how to succeed as a team, not just succeed as an individual.
I could see it clicking for some other guys, too. Our drill sergeant targeted some of us less and less.
But I also noticed a lot of guys were having a hard time putting it all together.
They became the drill sergeant’s favorite targets.
Man, it sucked for them.
They kept screwing up, getting us all smoked. They were struggling to keep up mentally and physically. They felt embarrassed, defeated.
I could tell they felt like losers. I felt bad for them. But it also pissed me off because the rest of us kept paying a pretty steep price.
When basic training was finally over, some other hard truths set in.
The guys that struggled? They were the ones not getting the MOS they wanted.
They were a rank or two behind where they could have been. Not everyone comes out at an E-4.
They even came out earning less money.
Some washed out completely. Others got recycled.
All because...they couldn’t hack basic training.
That’s when it hit me. What if there was a collection of “cheat codes” - the very best basic training tips and tricks? A guide book that included everything recruits needed...and nothing they didn’t?
What if there was a guide that would:
Help recruits get in MILITARY shape
Show how to deal with drill sergeants, and
Reveal what to memorize BEFORE their ship date?
New recruits would feel like they had the “cheat codes” to beat basic training!
They’d know what was coming before it happened.
So I started taking notes - even before I graduated basic.
I started interviewing other recruits. Once deployed I interviewed everyone I could.
I was collecting the “cheat codes” I wished I would have had.
It became my obsession...and in time, it became my mission.
I talked to everyone I could. I ended up pouring 1000’s of hours into interviewing drill sergeants, crusty vets, and recruits fresh out of basic.
Eventually, I ended up interviewing personnel from all five branches of the military. I covered every imaginable MOS.
It took me five years to put it all together, but..
I created a collection of “cheat codes” you won’t find anywhere else...even if you spent hundreds of hours scouring Google, YouTube, and every military forum on the planet.
I made it my mission to become the “go-to guy” on getting recruits ready for basic training.
After my honorable discharge, I took all my notes and wrote a book. I called it “The Ultimate Basic Training Guidebook.” It’s gone on to be a perennial best-seller and helped thousands of recruits. Barnes and Noble even keeps it stocked in every one of their stores.
But I wanted to do even more. So I interviewed the thousands students who had read my book once they finished basic. I asked them “What worked? What could have worked better?”
And based on their input, I created a completely updated and improved course. And I put it in a whole new video format.
It’s a format that’s proven to make learning easier and “stick” longer.
I’m excited to Introduce “Basic Training University” to you.
It’s EVERYTHING you need to crush basic training - all in a series of 9 no holds barred, no BS videos.
There is nothing like it on the planet.
And I’m proud to say it’s helped thousands of new recruits get ready for basic training. Just like it will help you.
Funny - some recruits don’t think they need it.
In fact, I hear noobs say all the time,
“Dude, I just want to ‘get through’ basic training. I just want to survive.
Why would I need a course? Why do I need to get prepared?”
To me, it’s like saying, “I just want to be average.” Or “I’ll just take my chances.”
Why leave something so IMPORTANT to CHANCE?
In case you hadn’t noticed, each military branch is accepting fewer and fewer recruits. It’s not like it was after 9/11.
Right now, the US military rejecting almost 80% of applicants!
That means competition for you is getting tougher...and not just to get in. That competition INCREASES once you get there...to get the MOS you want.
That’s why Basic Training University is so critical. It gives you a big advantage at the earliest possible stage of your military career.
Think about it. What do YOU really want out of basic training? Do you just want to survive? Just get through it? Do you want to wing it? To be average?
Or, do you want to graduate basic training with...
...then you need Basic Training University.
Forget listening to your buddy from school, or trolling the interwebs for reliable information.
And your recruiter just doesn’t have the time to give you one-on-one coaching.
Look, I know you’re nervous about Basic Training. That makes sense: you don’t know what to expect. You know you’re going to get yelled at. Your stuff will get thrown all over the barracks. You’ll run til your legs fall off. And you’ll do pushups until your arms feel like noodles.
Everyone’s scared. Like I said, 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.
It’s like having the “cheat codes” to beat the game!
Basic Training University is 9 instructional videos. They total more than 4 hours detailing the preparation YOU need to “beat” basic training.
It’s not just the result of my personal experience. It’s the result of thousands of interviews, and over 5 years of on-base research.
Here’s what’s been said about my training:
Here’s a breakdown of what you’ll get when you join Basic Training University.
Basic Training will stress your body beyond what you’ve ever been through. Think “double that” for the mental stress. Your drill sergeant’s goal is to break your bad habits, and turn you into a member of a high-performing team.
I’ll help you:
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.) will 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. And it will help you avoid injury.
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:
There is nothing on earth like meal time at Basic Training. You’ll need to be prepared mentally and physically. Believe it or not, there are secrets to getting through meal time chaos.
In this video:
You’re going to run a lot. I mean A LOT. I’ll teach you how to run faster and with less effort. They will time you, which means you’ll be under intense pressure. Several recruits have shaved MINUTES off their time by taking my running advice. You’ll know how to make the most of your energy and effort.
In this video I cover:
When we arrived in Iraq there were no gyms or facilities or “fitness equipment.” Then they went and 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? I crushed it! Our company’s fitness was so superior, I was awarded the Army Commendation Medal for my efforts!
If I can keep a whole 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 a SECRET MILITARY FITNESS FORMULA called:
Which stands for...oh, wait...I told you it was secret!
Life in the civilian world doesn’t stop just because you’re at basic training. I’ll teach you the tips you need to:
You’ll be managing lots of different relationships. Some very up close and personal, and some from a distance. Discover how to:
You’re going to be learning a mountain of new information at basic. But there’s a ton you can learn BEFORE you arrive. I’ll tell you exactly WHAT to study and HOW to memorize it:
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:
Let’s wrap this up.
You don’t want to wash out. Or recycle. Across the board, almost 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.
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.
Your performance in basic training will directly affect your pay scale. You can leave basic as an E1 up through an E4. Did you know there’s a 30% pay difference between being an E1 and an E4? And guess what? Basic Training University pays for itself because you will earn more points during basic training. This gets you a raise and promoted sooner.
You get to buy more of what YOU want.
I guarantee it works! But don’t just take my word! I’ve had thousands of new recruits take my training. Listen to what some of them have to say.
Pete's talks about how confusing, stressed, intense basic was. He watched it destroy some fellow recruits. But because of Basic Training University, he knew what to expect and how to control anxiety and stress. He graduated with honors and says it's worth the price!
Basic Training University taught me everything i need to know. I've got confidence. What a lifesaver!
Basic Training University helps with all the extra mental & physical stress - walks you through every aspect.

Every single one of my students is thrilled they took my advice in Basic Training University.
In fact, I’m so confident it will help you, I’ll make you this guarantee.
But you 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.
If I trained you 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.
This course could be worth thousands and thousands of dollars to your military career.
I’ve had more requests than I can count to travel across the country to train new recruits one-on-one. These requests came from high school jocks, academics and book worms, as well as from freaked out moms and dads.
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 Basic Training University. These 9 videos that will change your basic training experience and change your military career.
When these videos first came out, I charged $99 for the course. And it’s worth every penny of that $99.
But I want to more new recruits than ever to get the basic training preparation they deserve.
That’s why I’ve dropped the price to get it into as many hands as possible.
You’ll spend more than double the price of the course for a nice night out with your sweetheart.
Look, your ship date may seem like a long way off, but it’s going to get here before you know it.
The sooner you take advantage of this special pricing, the closer you’ll be to acing basic training.
So, are you ready to get your hands on the “cheat codes” to help you beat basic training?
Every day that passes is one day closer to your ship date.
New recruits who just “wing it” are the ones filling up the fail rate statistics, or scrambling for leftover jobs.
Don’t be one of the recruits NOT prepared for basic.
