Mark Perna publishes his first book “Surviving Marine Corps Boot Camp”

"Surviving Marine Corps Boot Camp" is a thorough training guide on preparing for the rigors of Marine Corps Recruit Training.

Mark Perna, the founder of https://marinesbootcamphq.com, publishes his first book “Surviving Marine Corps Boot Camp,” a complete guide to Marine Corps Recruit Training, including a 12-week physical fitness and nutrition plan to help future recruits prepare for the rigors of Marine Boot Camp. The book hit the shelves on November 7, 2022.

This book is available for purchase in paperback and Kindle versions on Amazon. Readers can also download a free sample from Amazon.

Surviving Marine Corps Boot Camp” draws from Mark Perna’s nearly decade of experience helping future Marine Corps recruits prepare for Marine Boot Camp through his website. Mark interviewed former and current Drill Instructors in order to compile the most accurate and up-to-date information possible.

This book is an essential resource for anyone considering joining the Marines, or those who want to know what they can expect during boot camp. It includes detailed information on:

  • Physical conditioning, including how to run further and faster, how to build strength, and how to prepare your body for the tough marches with 40 lb. packs
  • Mental toughness, and “getting your mind right”
  • Games Drill Instructors play, like incentive training
  • The importance of nutrition, what to eat, and what not to eat
  • A complete breakdown of the recruit training schedule, including a special section on the Crucible — a 54-hour event where recruits finally earn the title of United States Marine

In the introduction, Mark Perna emphasizes his average build — he was 130 lb. soaking wet when he joined the Marine Corps. He had no idea how to prepare for the physical or mental rigors of boot camp, and it was much tougher than he imagined.

The book includes personal anecdotes of combat where the training he received in Marine Boot Camp proved to be effective and built his resilience to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds, like his platoon of 38 Marines being surrounded by well over 100 Al-Qaeda fighters in Afghanistan.

Mark explains how Marine Corps Boot Camp works, why your Drill Instructors will never be satisfied with your performance, and how to develop the physical and mental strength of a United States Marine.
