Over the 30 years I have been involved within the fitness and military industries, I have excelled in sports such as Athletics..(800/1500 for the Army/Corps), Cross-Country for the Army, Badminton (Army/Combined Services/Corps/Gwent), Boxing (Corps), Cricket (Corps), Skiing-Cross Country (Army), Rugby Union (Corps Squad)..

Known as 'Mr Sit-Ups' and 'Mr Press-Ups' amongst many other nicknames by my counterparts I have always been fiercely competitive, very self-driven, I don't like to lose, the only time I concede defeat in a gracious manner is when I know I have been beaten by the better person, that is something that has kept me at the top of my game for all of these years...finally all of the stamina exploits I have done over the years has left me with a degenerated neck problem which will eventually end up with me having neuro surgery in later years but this doesn't stop me from searching for more records to break, and one not involving the neck as much!!!
