British Army Physical Training Instructor - Shannon Cruikshank

Welcome back to Chat Sh*t Get Fit - Chatting W/ PTs. This week we are joined by Shannon Cruikshank. She is currently serving with the Royal Engineers in the British Army but is being used a Physical Training Instructor (PTI) at a Royal Engineers training establishment (essentially delivering PT to recruits) She's wanted to be a PTI for a long time but as we explore her journey it's clear it wasn't an easy ride. A battle with mental health and alcohol, a change of cap badge and a constant battle to operate in a male dominated environment, Shannon finally got her 'crossed swords' and qualified as an Army PTI.

We of course start with establishing her top 3 gym peeves ranking them using our coveted super exclusive ranking scale. We then finish with secret questions...This was pretty wild as in Bills wisdom he asked you lot on Instagram 'without any context what would you ask this week's guest'. Great fun.
