BE A PJ™is here to provide you with the most targeted, effective, and efficient workout programs on the market to get you to and through PJ Indoc. LEARN FROM THE EXPERT, BRIAN SILVA.



I authored the most current Pararescue Indoctrination lesson plans and was the lead instructor for 3 years. During my time at Indoc, I instructed on every event I possibly could because I have a passion for making people better and stronger. I know exactly what you are going to experience at Indoc, exactly how your performance will be evaluated... and most importantly how to train effectively and efficiently. 

It is my goal to prepare your body and mind for the rigors ahead, but it's up to you to do the work.  With my Pararescue training programs, you will be the person who is consistently performing above the standards. CCT/TACP/SOWT candidates also successfully use my programs to prepare for selections. 

Trust me, you wont find workouts like mine anywhere.
