Mike Getka

Michael Getka retired after 21 years of service as a U.S. Navy Seabee & SEAL in 2004.  In 1999, he was selected as Instructor of the Year for the Naval Special Warfare Center in Coronado, California.

Following his retirement, he worked as the Warrior Challenge Program Mentor for Navy Recruiting District in Jacksonville, Florida and as the Deputy National Mentor for the Navy Recruiting Command. He assisted with the oversight and mission success for 26 Navy Recruiting Districts nationwide.  The Warrior Challenge Program provides training and mentoring for SEAL, SWCC, EOD, Navy Diver and AIRR rescue candidates.

In addition, Mike worked for Spartan Race as the U.S. Events and Operations, Real Estate Manager.  He managed over 25 race venues, corporate contracts, and negotiations, across the continental United States to include relationships with Major League Baseball (MLB) and National Football League (NFL) stadiums.

My father, who was a hardworking, Polish immigrant, engrained a never quit attitude, strong work ethic, no excuses, and focused mindset into me growing up. Those lessons not only contributed to me graduating from BUD/S (Navy SEAL training); they also led to multiple successes throughout my life.

In 2023, he established Getka SEAL Mindset, LLC.
