Start doing lots of push-ups, dead hang pull-ups, crunches, mountain climbers, and running. Go backpacking once in a while, this will help you build up to the road marches. Work on your swimming once in a while too. Aside from that, the rest of it is mental.

Crossfit.

Google it and do as much of it as you can.

It will help, but from my experience (e.g. going through Marine Corps boot camp in 2000), the above is what he's really going to need. The others can help, but the main thing he'll want to work on is the above. The physical part's the "easy" part anyways, the mental part is the toughest.
