EDITOR'S NOTE: This is a post from our author Gary. From Gary's Bio:
I am a Security Forces member in the United States Air Force. I have been an active duty member for 15 years working as a Phoenix Raven, Military Working Dog handler/Trainer/Kennel Master. I have done multiple tours during OEF/OIF landing me in Afghanistan, Iraq, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and other locations around the globe. I began Fatal Fitness back in 2010; however found out about it in 2009. Fatal Fitness is the core of my fitness regime as it relates to the functionality of what I do. Through these workouts coupled with my own program I have been able to obtain 100% on the AF Fitness test as well as 300points on the Army fitness test. It has also helped me pass the pre-ranger fitness assessment test with zero trouble. Fitness has and will always be a part of my life as well as most people in or looking to join the military. I believe through hard work and dedication you will be able to meet and exceed those standards in front of you. Two years ago through fatal fitness and my own pull-up regimen I was able to (unofficially) break the world record for the most pull-ups in a minute. 10 short minutes later I also (unofficially) broke the record for the fastest 1 mile fireman’s carry. I say unofficial because both have been broken recently and I am in pursuit to gain those back.
If you are wondering why fatal fitness when there are so many other sites out there? The answer is simple; fatal fitness offers you insight on how to train for your specific achievement. If you are on here then you are more than likely looking to join the military or bring your scores up and improve overall fitness levels. There are others; however very few are military geared and driven. At 34 years of age I am in better shape now than when I was at 19. If you’re looking for that Monday –Friday workout program then you may have stumbled across the wrong site. If you are looking for a challenge or need that mental and physical drive then you have found the right place. Fatal Fitness will test your mental stamina as well as your physical. In order to thrive in today’s military you have to be able to dig deep and keep going. You can’t practice that, but you can train for it.
If you are ready for a challenge, ready to smash the PAST tests, go beyond your competition and be the best at all you do; sign up now! Let Mike and the fatal fitness crew take you beyond your limits and show you what heart is all about. No one ever makes it on 50% and no one wins by stopping short.
