The Navy App Locker’s Warrior Toughness (WT) smartphone application is now available for download on any Android or iOS device.

It reinforces the WT training every enlisted Sailor receives at Recruit Training Command.

“This mobile application allows Sailors to access several exercises and interactive worksheets based on elite performance research,” said Rear Adm. Peter Garvin, commander, Naval Education and Training Command.

The Warrior Toughness application includes an interactive Warrior Mindset display. Intended as a recurring exercise, the Warrior Mindset leads Sailors through the four stages of the cycle: Commitment, Preparation, Execution and Reflection. Each section includes exercises and worksheets to help Sailors master specific skills.

“The Navy already provides Sailors with Warrior Toughness training at initial accessions programs such as boot camp,” said Rear Adm. Jennifer Couture, commander, Naval Service Training Command. “Now it’s available to every Sailor on their smart phones so they can continue to build these skillsets.”

All worksheets automatically transfer text input onto an exportable PDF file. Worksheets include Energy Management, Mental Rehearsal, Goal Setting, Self-Confidence, Self-Talk and SMART Goals exercises.

“Warrior Toughness is about making each Sailor a better warfighter. And that takes time to instill this into the mind, body and soul of every Sailor so they can apply the skills and perform at their peak,” said Garvin. “It’s introduced to recruits at boot camp, fortified in follow-on training schools and in the fleet with the smartphone app, and ingrained into everything they do as Sailors

Warrior Toughness is an evidence-based, holistic and individualized human performance skillset that enhances the mental, physical and spiritual toughness with a focus on the pursuit of peak performance. It emphasizes coequal development of toughness in the mind, body and soul. It combines performance psychology skills with character development, and teaches the Warrior Mindset, whose concepts were initially developed by members of the Naval Special Warfare community.
