THE 4-WEEK FORMULA FOR ELITE PHYSICAL FITNESS

ARE YOU READY TO BE PARA FIT?

Transform your lifestyle and fitness with the powerful new programme from Major Sam McGrath, former commander of the legendary PARAs' P Company selection process. Whatever your fitness level this 4-week formula evolves with you, equipping you to take on your most ambitious goals, maximize your potential and achieve transformational results.

CHALLENGE yourself and your body with the same endurance training and functional movement patterns used during PARA selection.

BUILD a lifestyle that complements your training with Major McGrath's pyramid approach, aligning firm foundations of sleep, nutrition and mobility with a structured exercise regime.

CONQUER your fears and unlock a ‘Paratrooper Mindset', with a focus on progress, not perfection, and the confidence to embody the PARA maxim ‘Ready for Anything'.

Biographical Note

Sam McGrath was the youngest soldier since World War II to achieve the rank of major and ran the selection course for the crack Parachute Regiment for three years. He left the military to enter the world of business and is now Managing Director of an FTSE 100 company in Singapore. The core values he learnt as a Para enable him to juggle this demanding corporate role with being a dedicated father of four and an elite endurance athlete.
