Entrepreneur Jesse Itzler chronicles his month of living and extreme fitness training with a Navy SEAL in the New York Times and #1 LA Times bestseller LIVING WITH A SEAL, now with two bonus chapters.
Entrepreneur Jesse Itzler will try almost anything. His life is about being bold and risky. So when Jesse felt himself drifting on autopilot, he hired a rather unconventional trainer to live with him for a month-an accomplished Navy SEAL widely considered to be "the toughest man on the planet"!
LIVING WITH A SEAL is like a buddy movie if it starred the Fresh Prince of Bel- Air...and Rambo. Jesse is about as easy-going as you can get. SEAL is...not. Jesse and SEAL's escapades soon produce a great friendship, and Jesse gains much more than muscle. At turns hilarious and inspiring, LIVING WITH A SEAL ultimately shows you the benefits of stepping out of your comfort zone.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Turning your exercise routine—and the rest of your life—over to a Navy SEAL is not a decision for the fainthearted. But that’s what millionaire entrepreneur Jesse Itzler did after he decided he’d gotten too comfortable with his life. This offbeat, inspiring memoir focuses less on their specific regimen and more on the odd-couple rapport between easygoing Itzler and his brusque, unsmiling trainer. Not everyone could manage (or afford) such an extreme way to jump-start their motivation, but Itzler’s core message—that self-care efforts pay forward in remarkable ways—shines through the sweat and toil.

Couldn’t put it down
I’m a professional baseball player for the Atlanta Braves. I literally never read books because I can’t find one that interests me. I will read for 15 minutes and not know anything I just read. I read this book because a teammate told me they were reading it and I read it in a week and it was amazing. Cover to cover. I had a feeling who SEAL was because I’ve heard of the legend before I read this. Absolutely great read for anyone! Highly highly recommend!!
One of the best books I’ve read !
Impossible Isn’t Acceptable
The best part of the book is gaining insight into SEALs mindset. As much as you can, anyway. It’s unbelievable what he is able to accomplish bc impossible isn’t acceptable. The mind is really such a powerful organ, and we limit ourselves daily because we don’t push through the discomfort. No matter what it is. I loved this book. It was funny and a great read. The mental toughness displayed is more inspiring than any race or physical accomplishment noted in the book. In part, because I feel very weak in that area. It left me in awe and I have mad respect for SEAL! What a man. I can only imagine the life he lived to be able to do what he does. I will be reading his book “Can’t Hurt Me” next.
