We employ combat-decorated veterans to teach leadership in complex, high-stress environments through realistic and challenging scenario-based experiences. Learn more about our outdoor leadership challenges based on Marine Corps Special Operation Missions by selecting an experience below.
We are in the business of developing leaders: We provide you the opportunity to challenge yourself in the pursuit of leadership and character development. We do this by leveraging the experience of our Elite Special Operations Cadre to offer exercises inspired by real-world Special Operations Missions.
We are not just another race: We will challenge you physically, mentally and emotionally by putting you in uncomfortable situations so you can identify your strengths and weaknesses. Through this adversity you will identify your limits and will succeed only when you are able to rely on your teammates to work together. To us, Functional Fitness is just that; the ability to function mentally, physically and emotionally, despite any obstacles you encounter while accomplishing your mission. Functional fitness is developed experientially, outside of an air-conditioned gym.
Standards-Based XPerience: We measure success by the tangible benefits you learn from our curriculum and apply to your daily routine. We hold ourselves and clients to the highest performance standards to ensure you realize the benefits of our experiences.
We are committed to supporting Veterans: RaiderXP cannot exist without veterans. Our cadre are hand-selected for their humility, experience and desire to share lessons they have learned because they are committed to building leaders with character. We will always support veterans and strive to be good ambassadors of the Special Operations Community.

The US Marine Raiders were elite commando units established by FDR during World War II to conduct amphibious light infantry warfare, particularly by landing in rubber boats and operating behind enemy lines. Marine Raider Battalions were the first US special operations forces to form and see combat in World War II. Today’s Marine Reconnaissance and Special Operations Forces draw their lineage from the Raiders.
The Naval Academy Wrestling team tricked Mike into attending the Naval Academy by taking him to a party at the University of Maryland during his recruiting visit. “It’s like this pretty much all the time here, Mike.” This led to Mike’s eventual career as a Marine Recon officer where he learned to be physically abused in the desert, the jungle, the mountains, and underwater. He founded RaiderXP so that he, and other military special operators, can impart the unique skill set that this experience brings onto others.
Derek is an experienced and gifted trainer. He has been training foreign militia in developing countries—or collapsing nations, depending on your level of optimism—for years. As a Special Forces Marine he has softly influenced military and political leaders, and not-so-softly molded young soldiers of fledgling armies into effective commandos. His experience provides the Raider XP Team with a breadth of training and leadership development insight understood by few in the world. When Derek isn’t training Raiders he moonlights as a motivational speaker.
Joe has experience in a wide variety of operations. Not only was Joe one of the first team leaders in the newly formed and ultra-elite Marine Special Operations Command, he also owns a savage little basement bar in downtown Wilmington, NC. Joe has a hard time distinguishing between business and pleasure. He enjoys training Afghan Special Forces, foreign rebels, and our Raiders just as much as he enjoys stumbling out of arcane Third World dive bars just in time to make the McDonald’s breakfast menu.
