James and Dylan are teaming up to take their respective backgrounds in “Hybrid” athletic performance, and military Special Warfare course preparation to prepare a small group of people who are looking to improve their water confidence.

We will gather feedback from all participants before the program starts, and learn about your fitness goals. We will then prepare a program that engages elements from all courses/pipelines (H2O Games, RTAP, BUD/s, Dive School, Swift Water Rescue, etc.) and the group will proceed through the program together. People who are interested in passing a physical readiness course in the Fire Department, Police Academy, any branch of the military, or prepping for the H2O Games should strongly consider this 8-week course.

*Purchasing this program will come with a complimentary Deep End Fitness membership through the duration of the program ($240 value)
