While most of you were tucking into your roast dinners or spending a lazy Sunday afternoon on the sofa, our Training Academy Manager Mark Laws was teaching in the historic market town of Marlborough, Wiltshire.
This was no ordinary certification. The venue for the course was a modest sized studio situated down a small gravel driveway which acts as the flagship studio for 'BG EPIC Training'.
For those who don't know, 'BG EPIC Training' is the brainchild of adventurer, writer and television presenter - Bear Grylls, who has developed a number of short duration/high intensity fitness sessions which are soon to be rolled out worldwide.
One of the areas which all BG EPIC instructors are required to be qualified in is Bodyweight Suspension training.
Mark spent the day teaching both the theory and practical elements to members of the BG EPIC training team and a number of local PTs.
Head of Performance for BG EPIC Training is award winning Personal Trainer, Natalie Summers. Throughout the last 11 years in the industry Natalie has opened a hugely successful private studio where she has trained Bear for a number of years, as well as a host of other familiar faces and a huge amount of local residents. Her success has not gone unnoticed and Natalie's studio has been nominated for the second year in a row in the category of 'Functional Gym of the Year' at the 2014 National Fitness Awards.
Natalie explains "It is key for us to have our BG EPIC team trained by Mark - Training Academy Manager at Jordan Fitness. He is passionate, knowledgeable and enthusiastic, all key factors to deliver a great course. The Jordan Fitness Suspension Training course was no different, a hugely enjoyable and educational certification. Our instructors are now more educated and confident to deliver our Bear Grylls inspired BG EPIC Training workouts".
"It is really exciting to be involved in this project. Speaking to Natalie it is clear that Bear has big plans for BG EPIC, for Jordan Fitness and myself it's a privilige to be chosen to deliver the training for their team. This is the second course we have done for BG EPIC and it sure won't be the last" said Training Academy Manager, Mark Laws.
