Ex-commando, now fitness trainer to the stars including Geri Halliwell, Halle Berry, Charlie's Angels and Pierce Brosnan in his 007 role, provides a plan for everyone who wants to look and feel a superfit action hero.
Simon Waterson is the ex-845 Naval Air Commando Squadron physical training instructor, twice decorated for his efforts in the Bosnia campaign who is now a celebrity fitness trainer, working in a team with two other military trainers who are also models in this illustrated book.
For anyone who is interested in the feats of stamina, strength and bravery of commandos this book contains exercises and inspiring anecdotes. The commandos' mantra is Improvise, Adapt and Overcome and will help the reader use the programme anywhere, in the gym, street, woods or park.
While it contains inspiring military facts such as what a typical 24-hour ration pack contains and what supplements are most popular, the essence of the book explains how the forces' training programmes can be adapted to a civilian life. For example, how to build stamina using power circuits is illustrated with the inspirational example of Bravo 2 Zero and the 300-mile walk to the Syrian border.
Simon is a qualified nutrition expert and has designed an eating plan typical of high energy needs, used in the military.
