On this episode of Got Your 6, Tony interviews Underwater Torpedo League co-founder Don Tran.
Don Tran is a former Special Operations Marine Raider, entrepreneur, and a certified personal trainer specializing in functional fitness and aquatic training. Don is the co-founder of two Southern California underwater fitness companies: Underwater Torpedo League, a longtime underground military sport that became popular after it was officially launched to the public in 2018, and Deep End Fitness, which provides a complementary training workout program.
A master instructor trainer, he has a passion for fitness and its real-world application, applying his fitness background to teach efficient movement and mental fortitude. His mission is to help both athletes and non-athletes overcome fears and break boundaries to become better versions of themselves. He believes everybody is a warrior in his or her own way. He lives by the principle of being F.R.E.E which stands for Focus, Relaxation, Economy of Motion, and Efficient Breathing.
Don and his co-founder were introduced to the sport of underwater torpedo to get their minds off the anxieties and fears of being submerged underwater during their military training. They identified that confidence and mental strength underwater translates to increased confidence on land.
He believes in hard work and pushing one’s self to the limit. He believes a person’s own safety net is themselves. He has been featured in Voyage LA, Outside Online, and in several podcasts. Underwater Torpedo League has attracted NFL players such as Cleveland Browns linebacker Christian Kirksey, Buffalo Bills safety Micah Hyde, and New Orleans Saints linebacker Manti Te’o, pro surfers, and MMA fighters like Kailin Curran Don graduated from Chapman University with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and is currently attending the Executive MBA Program at USC Marshall.
