Spirit Hunters are the most hardest trained people in the whole world, trained in the use of all weapons that will save there life.
Training to be a Spirit Hunter can push people to there limit, out of ten people who join only a few will finish training, much stronger then when they joined, oddly more men fail to finish training then women, the main thing a Spirit Hunter is made to do is run, while not seeming helpful a Spirit Hunter needs to be able to run good amount of time while carrying their kit, that and a Spirit Hunter spends a good amount of there life running, it's also a great way to get there body into shape and lose some weight, Spirit Hunters tend to lose one fifth of their body weight.
Most of their warm ups is 100 star jumps, 10 push ups, 10 sit ups then 10 squats, then add 10 to the number of push ups, sit ups and squats, but doing a 100 star jumps at the start of each set, they do it till they have to do 50 push ups, 50 sit ups and then 50 squats. Many like to do this to get there legs in shape.
