Your recruiter is blowing you off. Just like they do with the thousand of want-to-be candidates watching Navy Seal TV shows or whatever is popular at the time.
Rep63 only means you "try out" for special forces. Get in line, just like every other video game player. So spare them that you can do 30 pull-ups and blah, blah, blah. The recruiters have heard it all.
One tip might be to brace yourself. It's hard for me to see what is so special about "special forces" when they have 1. expanded the personnel; and 2. watered down the standards by admitting women.
Are you familiar with the two women who became rangers? They lowered the standards. The women were allowed to test until they passed. They got to see some training ahead of time (the men did not). They got special counseling on fitness and diet while ranger training (again, the men did not).
There is also some trouble with special forces being killed in training. Check this article:
Article: The Navy SEALs and other secretive units are quietly battling a frightening rise in parachute deaths
Excerpt: "Today's force of 70,000 elite soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines is nearly double what it was in 2001."

I know it sounds glamorous, but what kind of organization has more people die practicing than in the actual job? That would be like more NFL players getting injured in training camp than actually playing a Sunday game. Any coach overseeing a debacle like that would be fired. No player would hardly want to be injured in some scrimmage.
If they can't get their sh*t together in training, then I sure would not want to execute it for real.
Also, what is so elite or "special" about a force that has watered down its personnel by doubling it?
Here is another article. This is about seals, but the previous article talked about training trouble with the rangers.
Article: Since 2013, more SEALs have died in training than combat, records show
Excerpt: "More Navy SEALs have died in training over the last three years than in combat or from combat-related wounds, according to records kept by the Navy SEAL Foundation, a nonprofit group based in Virginia Beach, Va."
