ROYAL MARINE COMMANDO Achieved Royal Marines Selection
September 2012 I set myself the challenge of becoming a Royal Marine Commando arguably one of the toughest job going and home to a lot of fitness fanatics! I joined the gym for the first time and didn’t really have any structure or organization to my exercise routine. Sean came and introduced himself one day and gave me a couple of pointers, as I was flailing about on one of the machines and generally almost doing more harm than good! So I booked an appointment for the following week.
Sean really opened up my eyes and focused on what I could already achieve rather than the massive transformation and effort that was inevitably in front me. He is professional in a friendly, personal way, as well as being regarded an expert in understanding fitness and the human body but has a great attitude and even greater personality, who will always help you to strive to achieve your goals and teach you that with a bit of effort, commitment and brains anything you want is within your reach. It certainly would have been a much harder and longer road for me without Sean’ constant help and applied pressure when needed! He was never afraid to go that extra mile for me! Here are just some of my stats to prove this:
7 months later and accepted into the Royal Marines:
1.5 mile run: under 8:30
Press ups: 65+
Plank: 4 mins+
Pull ups: 8+
3 min row: 914m+
Given that my fitness when joining was that of the average beer drinking, burger-loving young man that could be outrun by his 56yr old boss! Sean must have performed a miracle! Not only can you see the difference in the stats but also visually as well, replacing fat with extra muscle and much leaner. This is only because Sean made me realise how important diet, lifestyle is as much as doing the exercise and hard work!
Whatever you want in life Sean can help you realise and achieve any goal!
