I love to walk and cycle the great outdoors. I am a healthy male who was inspired by a friend of mine to become a part of this Spark programme in order to pursue my aim of walking the entirety of The Great Wall Of China and to hopefully get even more in shape than i already am and if i am being honest, to get a push into doing it, as it is a scary thing (It's a hellovawalk people!!) :-D

I have at my advantage that i have already walked the 84 mile distance of Hadrian's Wall in England amongst climbing several mountains (Mount Snowdon in Wales, Mount Etna in Sicily and Mount Vesuvious in Italy)

I have travelled most of the world and from memory some of my most joyous occasions have been watching the beautiful animals run free in The Serengetti and from the mountains i have climbed Mount Vesuvious was an amazing adventure knowing that it is still THE most active volcano in Europe and it could have erupted at any time whilst i was up there, a real rush! Also, swimming with sharks and turtles at The Great Barrier experience everybody should have at least one time in their lives.

I would love to do my first sky dive and also to bungee jump from The Bloukrans Bridge in South Africa, which is the highest single span arch bridge in the world.

I am not an adrenaline junky or anything like that, i simply believe that we all have that extra inch, yard, mile etc... in us to go that little bit further and to be able to look back and say "Wow!! I really did that". Which is why i admire anyone who is willing to take that extra step in achieving their goals wether it be in fitness, work or life in general. We all have it in us to amaze ourselves on a daily basis...Nothing is impossible.

Member Since: 7/7/2011

Fitness Minutes: 4,215

My Goals:
To continue exercising and eating right and keep pushing myself to reach my goals by staying focused and positive.

My Program:
I currently hike roughly 20 miles per week over all sorts off rough and smooth terrain and go swimming twice a week doing 20/25 lengths per session. I love nothing better than to drive out into the middle of nowhere and explore for hours and hours whilst taking pictures with my camera and at the same time burning off any excess calories.

Personal Information:

Other Information:
Amongst my hobbies and pastimes i enjoy reading, music and socialising. My favourite author is John Steinbeck and i am currently in the process of reading his entire works. My musical tastes include a wide variety and could never be whittled down to one singer or band - although like anyone, i do have my favourites. I have also been known to write a few songs in my time and hope to one day start work on the novel that is burning to get out of me about the places i have travelled to and the many differences between people and lifestyles in all walks of life from the various places that i have been lucky enough to visit around the world.

    Hi Cal,
    I think passing on positivity is a wonderful thing, and I do thank you for passing it on to me.

    Thank you, I appreciate your positivity, but things are not as easy as just doing what I want to do, pursuing my dream, etc. As for the dvds, I am stuck on crutches 4-6 weeks, not able to go anywhere without begging somebody to drive me.

    I will focus on your positive attitude about it all, I know being upset about things does not do anything to help.

    "Completely exhausted"?! Really? I'd wager you'd find the energy if you needed to... :D
