I come from the North East, went to 13 different schools, moved around loads and never actually finished education “as such”. I joined the British Army as an Engineer but soon realised that fitness was my bag. During that time a bad thing happened to me (ask me about it—it’s not for on here).
After 20 years of service, I had completed all the army courses that I wanted, including Army Diver (Frogman), Fitness Instructor, and the P Coy Para Course, coming top at most including “champion para” on P coy. Just before I left the forces, I was in a vehicle blown up by a road side bomb on new years eve in Afghanistan’s Helmand Province, injuring my neck.
I am also a keen sportsman. I just dabble nowadays in half marathons and Tough Mudders, etc. In my 20s I competed in a number of events such as the Berlin Marathon, Biel 100 km (twice), Paderborn Triathlon, army slalom kayak, Megavalache (world’s longest downhill race), army indoor climbing and biathlon championships in Serre Chevalier. For around 10 years, I competitively took part in cross country running, athletics at 1500 metres, steeplechase, high jump and long jump.
Since leaving the forces, I have focussed on education to ensure my service cannot be beaten locally. I currently work out of Pulse Gym in Durham. I am also available for extra work in movies. I had the fortune of being an extra in Star Wars the Last Jedi as a rebel soldier.
