Today we remember the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in the Ottoman Empire during World War I. Also in a broader sense all those who served and died in military service to our great country.
Although I have never served in our armed forces, I have a huge respect for those that have and those that currently do. Life is not cheap, and to put ones life on the line to serve your country is, in my opinion, a very noble thing.
Since opening Underground Strength Gym Melbourne, I have had the pleasure of training a number of our Australian military servicemen. I also train those who are getting ready to enter our armed forces.
When currently enlisted soldiers some to train with me, they are on leave and can usually spend only 3 weeks maximum. This is a very intense 3 weeks, training 5 - 6 days each week (often morning and evening sessions). I make sure they are going to be at the top of their game, for whatever grueling assignment they are going back to.
Our most recent visitor was Lance Corporal Slavko (can't give you his full name). This was Slavkos second time back with us. He was going straight from training at Melbourne's Underground, into an incredibly arduous selection process for becoming a sniper.
Check out the video below, to see a very small part of what he went through during his training with us.
