Pegasus Military Fitness is run by its co-founder, Barry Watkins, and instructors Mark Lundqvist, Mykal Cook, Jay Abberley and Connor M Sinclair.
Barry, whose background is in martial arts and who is a black belt kickboxing instructor, founded the Chingford-based bootcamp in 2011, along with ex airborne forces soldier, Simon, who has since moved on to pastures new.
Mark, ex-South African Defence Force, joined as an instructor in 2015. A veteran of load-bearing endurance events, he enjoys nothing more than carrying a heavy bergen over the Brecon Beacons of a weekend, except maybe dishing out a healthy "thrashing" to the Pegasus crew!
Mykal served seven years in the armed forces as an OP Ack and is now a personal trainer and rugger bugger.
Jay has a degree in sports science and is also a qualified personal trainer. He has competed nationally in athletics and basketball and has represented England at football. He also has ten years of martial arts under his belt.
Connor M Sinclair is a serving Lcpl in the Coldstream Guards and has been a PTI since 2015. He has competed at national level in cross country skiing and also holds qualifications in rock climbing and kayaking. He has brought an extra skill set to the instructing team with his in-depth knowledge of pre and post race conditioning, mobility and injury prevention.
