Optimize 2 Win Retreat - 8 Day Package

"Prepare - Execute - Repeat"

"Knowing your location on the map in a survival situation is as important as knowing where you’re at in life - with yourself, your surroundings, and with others. "

Purpose of the O2W Retreat:

Because we are required to operate so quickly in today’s environment, we often neglect the most important priorities to successfully navigate the world… a healthy and harmonious Mind, Body, and Spirit.  The “O2W Package” provides you the resources necessary to get you FOCUSED and moving in the right direction.

Successful performance, whether in business, community, government, and even family, is built on STRONG BASICS. During the O2W Package, we’ll share with you BASIC “life hacks” that have been successfully proven on the battlefield, in the boardroom, and in the community - principles and procedures that will assist you in getting your mind, body, and spirit to the elite, "Tier One Level."  These are the same skills taught and adopted by elite-level military special operatives to succeed in highly dangerous operations, uncertain situations, and unfamiliar environments.

"Winning is not a sometime thing; it's an all-time thing. You don't win once in a while, you don't do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time. Winning is habit."


The O2W Retreat is an eight-day  package that includes the following:


  • Transportation to and from San Jose to Camp Zen Commando

  • Day 1 accommodations in San Jose, Costa Rica

  • Meditation. Each morning will be dedicated to getting “your mind right” through a quiet period of deep meditation and awareness.


  • Fitness Training. After meditation, a staff member will lead a low-impact, total-body, core-centric workout. Our workouts are designed for all levels and ages.  


  • Nature Hikes. Local hikes will be incorporated in the day for meditative and sightseeing purposes.  This is a great time to experience and visually consume the beauty of Costa Rica's natural surroundings.
