— Len Izzo



“Wow! What an amazing experience! I’ve never been around a group of men where I could share what scares me, where I’m weak, what I’ve done wrong, what’s offended me, and have gotten nothing but support. If you get a chance, jump on this!

–David King



“I know I have a bigger purpose to do great things while I’m here on this planet. If you have the opportunity to attend Warrior Week Plus, do it! There’s nothing like this out there.”

–GP Theriot



“Coming out of Warrior Week+ 3.0, my wife and I had a divorce-like collision. I was able to Stack the fuck out of that shit and release the rage within the Stack instead of on my wife. What’s incredible about Warrior Week+ is that it’s returned me to who I am, and at the same time, elevated me. I am a quantum spiritual Warrior king, and that is who the fuck I am. I am a powerful, extraordinary man who is filled with a passion and lust for life.”

–Demian Lichtenstein



“What an incredible experience! I’ve been part of Warrior for a while, but this was by far the best experience I’ve ever had inside of Warrior. It takes you on your own hero’s journey to uncover who you really are. I now understand what’s been holding me back for so long and keeping me from getting the results in my life.”

–Peter Avalon Northstar




“I used to be angry all the time and yell at my wife and kids. Now there’s no more of that. I’ve identified some of the lies I’ve been telling myself that put me on the hamster wheel day after day, doing the same things and expecting a different result. Now I’m addressing my problems head-on. There’s no doubt in my mind that I wouldn’t be doing that had I not attended Warrior Week+.”

–William Dotson



“Warrior Week+ was absolutely transformative. It was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had in my life. I’m a different man. I have so much certainty around who I am, where I’m going, and why I’m here. I have forged a connection with God and feel the divinity that is within me.”

–Stephan Jenner



“I was really concerned about it being virtual, but it has far surpassed anything I thought I was going to get. It was incredible. I’ve made both big and little changes, and it’s pushed me to do more and be more.”

–Joe Kessi

–David Altuzarra



“All of the evolutions in the Warrior Week Plus experience – the bonds, the closeness, and the band of brotherhood that was developed – as well as the revelations and the gifts received, are unmatched and priceless.” 

–Alex Ginsberg



“I had gotten into the habit of not looking at all the good shit about me, the things that made me unique, powerful, and talented. Instead, I was looking at all the “bad” things in my life. I got to listen to other men being vulnerable and realized that I wasn’t alone in my thoughts & feelings.”

–Jordan Strauss



“Warrior Week+ allowed me to see what I was missing while claiming to live the Warrior’s Way and what it really meant in terms of living by the Code. It also allowed me to see what it really means to be connected to God.”

–Duane Ingles

–Wayne Rossow




“I went into it with many questions, some hesitation, and a bit of skepticism that there’s no way a virtual environment was going to match up to a live in-person Warrior experience. Was I ever wrong! I had the most amazing transformation in the 33 days leading up to the event, and the two-day intensive that created many pivots and course-corrections for me.”

–Ken Kotch



“Warrior Week Plus was transformative and spiritual beyond anything conceivable; a blessing beyond any understanding.”

–Shawn Deitemeyer



“Any of you who are on the fence about Warrior Week Plus because it’s a virtual event, get off the fence and into the event! Having done both the in-person and virtual Warrior Week, I can tell you without hesitation that the Warrior Week Plus is every bit as impactful, every bit as powerful and every bit as miraculous as the in-person Warrior Week.”

–Dr. David Fedor



“It would be fair to say I came into Warrior Week+ fairly skeptical. Having just graduated, what I will say is Warrior Week+ is perhaps one of the most impactful events that I’ve attended. It came at me from an angle I never expected. I have received gifts of insight and distinction that I know are going to help achieve amazing results for me, and for those around me.”

–Shane Barker



“Going into this event, I had a lot of fear about what the future held for me, and a lot of guilt and shame from my past. I wanted to gain power and certainty. As soon as the first evolution began, I knew I was in the right place and where I needed to be. Once I discovered the dominant story that was holding me back, I was able to cut the cord to so many other stories and free up so much energy.”

–Jason Godoy



“Each week of the entire 30-day experience peeled back another layer exposing the reasons why I operate the way I do as well as what I’ve been allowing myself to believe. Those revelations week after week opened me up and allowed me to see things and capabilities in me I had never before seen.”

–Dave Meyer



“Warrior Week+ was an excellent experience. My testimonial boils down to learning that there are a lot of men out there like me -dedicated, strong fathers that are caught in their own bullshit, which doesn’t make us weak, it just makes us unaware.

–Ryan Long



“…the most rewarding and transformational process I’ve ever gone through in my life. The truth that you have to go find within yourself and the evolutions that you have to complete are truly nothing short of miraculous.”

–Josh Thomas



“I experienced Warrior Week in Laguna Beach, and I wasn’t quite sure how a virtual experience would be. What I got from Warrior Week+ is that my life is what I create it to be. Period. All of the rules and pressures that I feel from outside sources are stories I create in my own head…and none of it is fucking real.”

–Joey Gindy



“Warrior Week – I’ve got only two words…Holy Shit! The impact and intensity that they created was mind-blowing and shattered all my expectations. It was so fucking awesome to do this with all of the guys with the guidance of Coach Sam, a true leader who kept us all accountable for only speaking the truth.”

Diederic Gimbergen



“The guys at Warrior really know what they’re doing. This Warrior Week+ event was way beyond what I could have ever imagined when I stepped into this. I showed up to find a deeper sense of purpose and drive the inner power in me that I needed to continue growing my business in this crazy economy, pandemic, and chaos, and to bring back to the core the father and husband I know myself to be.”

Ben Gerster



“I’ve never been part of anything like this. This is men dealing with men. There’s no cutting corners, no holding hands, no pussy-footing. It is what it is. It’s real, and it teaches you in a real way how to express yourself. And most of all, it teaches you how to be honest.”

-Brian Kendall

–Macario Gallegos



“Warrior Week+ was hard, but the end result was unavoidable. The guys, the tools, and the assignments made change inevitable if you committed to the process. When I joined, my fire was out. There was no passion, no love, no drive, no focus. It broke me apart, emptied me out, and filled me back up with everything that I need.”

-John Garry Aylward



“This has been an experience like none other. It has transformed me and impacted my family. It has helped me open my eyes to make stronger and better choices, I’ve been able to forgive myself, and I finally believe that I can be the man that God wants me to be and has called me to be.”

–Zeke Perez



“Over the course of the 33-day experience, I grew into myself – the man I’ve been looking for. I got in touch with a bunch of shit I’ve been stuffing down inside that I could then talk about, share, journal, experience, and then let go. I feel so much lighter, better, calm, and focused as a leader in my family and business.”

–Aaron Lebauer



“If you want a better life, if you want a better you, there is no better system and lifestyle. Coach Garrett and Coach Sam will change your life; all you gotta do is take that next step. In my professional 25 years, I have never endorsed a program; I’m doing it now.

Ty Moeder



“I went into Warrior Week+ looking for something, and I found what I was looking for. And I guarantee you will, too.”

–Jeff May



“We dug deep. we were open & honest, it got really emotional at times, and it was long and grueling…but it was worth every minute. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.”

–Peter Aston



“Before Warrior Week+, I didn’t want to look at myself in the mirror and avoided looking in my eyes. I now cannot only look at myself in the mirror but also want to look into my eyes and see what I saw on that final day of Warrior Week. I know who I am, I know what I want, and… I’m going to get it.”

–Trenton Rehak
