David Goggins – Mental Toughness: This CBS Morning interview discusses why Atlanta Hawks owner Jesse Itzler invited Navy SEAL David Goggins to live with his family for a month as his personal trainer.

That is the subject of Itzler’s new book, “Living with a SEAL: 31 Days Training with the Toughest Man on the Planet.” Itzler and Goggins join “CBS This Morning” to discuss what drove the them through the experience.

David Goggins Biography

David had to overcome many challenges in his life. He grew up in an abusive household, barely graduated high school, and struggled with some serious health issues. According to David, his mindset is all about achieving his personal best and pushing himself well past his comfort zone.

He is the only member of the U.S. Armed Forces to complete SEAL training (including two Hell Weeks), the U.S. Army Ranger School (where he graduated as Enlisted Honor Man) and Air Force tactical air controller training (TACP).

Races and Ultra-Marathons

David has completed multiple ultra-marathons, triathlons, ultra-triathlons, bike races and arduous mountain ascents, setting new course records and regularly placing in the top five. His achievements made him the subject of a lead feature in Runner’s World, where he was named “Running Hero”, and Outside Magazine named him “The Fittest (Real) Man in America.”

The Navy SEALs even asked him to be their poster-boy and appear in a recruiting commercial.  All of the awards, medals, accolades and magazine articles mean nothing to David.  David chooses to run the toughest races and put himself through some of the hardest military training programs in the country for no other reason than to see what he’s made of.
