Story On Geoff Barker


Bessie Bardot and Geoff Barker


Fattest kid in school

At 14 he broke the school record for slowest 100m ever at 24 sec's. Geoff decided he'd had enough sand kicked in his face and started learning all he could about training the body and mind. After putting himself through a highly intensive self imposed 3 year routine, studying and training constantly, he successfully qualified for the elite British Royal Marines, beating thousands of hopefuls.

Royal Marine Commando

Later getting the coveted Green Beret with commendations he joined 42 Commando and continued training for Northern Island and Buckingham palace duties. While in the Marines at 19 he competed and won his city championships, 100% drug free. After severe injury forced him to leave the corps he went on to became the youngest person in England to take the advanced Diploma in security management and personal protection.

Scrubbin' Decks to Australia
After leaving the Marines he spent some time as a personal trainer in his home town of Plymouth. He then jumped on a ship, working his passage by scrubbing decks and cleaning the engines until he reached Australia. Arriving with $200 and his Marines back pack he lived in Kings Cross in a Combi van for a year. Working at Gyms around Sydney as one of Australia's first personal trainers.
