Register for Special Training 2017
$60.00 – $110.00
The cost of the entire Special Training weekend is $60.
This covers the cost of Andrew Benioff’s travel and accommodations, as well as the purchase of equipment and supplies that we’ll use during the weekend. If enough people attend, it’s possible we’ll be able to lower the cost, in which case we will refund money to each of you when our total expenses are known. This figure won’t be available until after the weekend is complete.

- three days of special training (see schedule)
- drinking water and orange slices during selected workouts
