What’s His Fitness Style?

Most SAS: Who Dares Wins 2019 contestants have a preferred style of fitness training, and Rick is no different.

Rick gets into shape by pushing himself to the limits on the CrossFit floor.

Speaking to Channel 4, Rick said:

I train hard every day and compete at a high level of CrossFit so I felt prepared for the physicality.

For anyone who needs inspiration to join a CrossFit class, let Rick’s abs do the talking…

Rick and His Bullying Torment

Episode 4 will see Rick open up about his difficult childhood, where he was badly bullied from the age of 8-17.

He explains that he was picked on in school for being the ‘weedy kid’.

Speaking to Channel 4, Rick said:

Having been severely bullied as a child I have always had the drive to succeed, which allows me to endure things that 99% of people wouldn’t.

SAS: Who Dares Wins S4 – Rick

It allowed me to qualify as a barrister at 22 years old having been written off as “not academic” at school and to reach a level of success at work and fitness that few people achieve. I now understand, however, that I do this because I feel the need to prove myself constantly rather than because of the success it actually brings.
