Tribe 'n Training

Monthly Subscription Program
Mental + Physical + Social Health
tribe (noun) \ ˈtrīb \

A small group of people defined by clear purpose and understanding. Historically, that meant you shared food and defense — and you were part of something bigger than yourself.

We believe an active life is a healthy life and this unites us. Push boundaries (especially the ones you have in your own mind), get stronger one step and one rep at a time, and spend quality time with friends outside.

To join thousands of us from all over the world, and in neighborhoods near you, become a member of GORUCK Tribe 'n Training.

Why Tribe 'n Training?

2. 100% SCALABLE

There’s a lot of talk about mental health these days, and rightfully so. Every measure of human health is worse than it’s ever been — but we do not accept the status quo as our norm. For us, getting our minds right is about a lot more than vacations and shrinks and pills. Here are some things we believe are vital to our mental health: 

• Time outside
• Physical challenges
• Real world community
• Social fitness
• Good sleep
• Real food
• Rucking, training, and living life to the fullest

Social fitness brings people together and removes barriers through shared adversity. This activity creates stronger relationships, which creates stronger communities, which creates stronger nations.

This path begins with just one step forward, and you control that step.

2020 Pandemic

Tribe Origins

The idea for GORUCK Tribe was born in our driveway during the pandemic. We wanted a simple way to stay healthy and see our friends and to keep ourselves from going crazy. As it turns out, social fitness was vital for our physical and mental health, and we wanted to share this way of life with our 500+ Ruck Clubs and community of people all over the world.
