﷯ > Fat loss > Event fitness > Leading adventure and extreme environment fitness expert > Brand ambassador for Sealskinz Background After serving 14 years as a Royal Marine Commando, Physical Training Instructor and Adventure Training Instructor, I established Commando Active with a view of delivering high quality personal and group physical training. I have considerable experience in delivering high level corporate team development packages with clients such as P&G, Absolute Radio and HarperCollins. I'm also a regular contributor on all subjects related to health and fitness in many national publications, from The Daily Mail to Outdoor Fitness Magazine and I was fortunate enough to be the fitness expert for Zest magazine for several years. Over the years I have competed in a wide range of sports, from rugby to canoeing to ultra marathon to climbing and consider my mental strength and my constant all round physical fitness to be the major contributing factor that has enabled me to do all of these things with no or very little specific training. I work as a sports model with credits such as Adidas, Gillette and as a Men's Running cover model. I also featured in the documentary "Commando: On The Front Line", which followed Royal Marine recruits throughout their eight month long Commando training as well as "The 55 year old Commando", which followed documentary maker, Chris Terrill's journey towards earning his green beret. I'm signed to the sports modelling agency WAthletic. Since leaving the Royal Marines I have also worked as the head instructor for a luxury fitness retreat and more recently as a personal trainer and climbing wall manager/instructor at London's premier health club , The Third Space. I'm a brand ambassador for SealSkinz. I now work out of the exclusive personal training studio The Albany Club in central London, but I'm also available to train you in other venues too.
