I am a level 3 PT with a passion for running and cycling. I first entered obstacle races in 2011 and completed Nuclear’s inaugural 42K Oblivion race in 2015. I then transitioned to long distance triathlon having competed in full and half Ironman events for the past 4 years. As a regular open water swimmer, I enjoy the challenge of Ice swimming in the winter months. My motivation and reason for being a PT is to help clients prepare for events in a safe confident way looking at fitness, mental attitude and nutrition.
Working for Nuclear races is different every day. I’m proud to be a part of the team and love its all inclusive attitude. It’s an environment where every visitor and client is made to feel welcome and at home.
I am a new member to the team and I am loving being apart of it. I have participated in many Nuclear Races and have also ran 3 marathons and many half’s. I have also taken on the 3 peaks challenge twice both in the winter months and completed the last one in January 2018. My love for the mountains has seen me take part in the Fan dance collection, these are special forces selection test over the Brecon range in Wales open to the public. I love working as team member and love being a part of Nuclear team, where we can help people over come fears they may have and help them conquer the obstacles out there on course.
I started my journey running my first Nuclear Races in 2017 & I was hooked. I could not get enough of the amazing people and the fun & when the opportunity to join the team arose I jumped at it. I joined the team in 2021 working mainly at Nuclear High Ropes and I back run for large events at Wild Forest & I am part of the water safety team. Not many people can say they do their hobbies as a job.
I’m passionate about what I do and I can never resist getting muddy! My favourite obstacle is Ebenezer, I’m always jumping in and pulling out shoes, you are guaranteed to have a great time out on course with me. I work full time as a firefighter, my most memorable job was saving a horse called Ronnie that got stuck in a ditch!
I was introduced to the world of OCR 5 years ago and have loved it ever since. My first ever OCR I ran with friends for fun and from that I progressed to running competitively. In early 2016 I took part in a Nuclear Taster, which was so much fun and gave me an opportunity to gain obstacle experience and some tips and tricks. I starting working at Wild Forest in 2018 and joined the Nuclear Races OCR Team and couldn’t be happier. I love training outdoors, I love helping people, I love all things fitness related and I love being at Wild Forest!
I am a level 3 Personal Trainer and when I am not at Wild Forest, I am running boot camp sessions and helping people achieve their fitness goals. I have been into OCR for about four years, competed twice at the OCR World Champs held here at Nuclear Races and love every aspect of the sport. I especially love helping people overcome obstacles here at Wild Forest, it gives me a massive buzz. I am here to help you achieve your goals and get you ready for your next race, my knowledge and enthusiasm will make your experience both fun and worthwhile.
Being outdoors, challenging yourself and staying fit are three of my passions and to find them all in one place is a dream. Being new to the nuclear team, I’m still learning the ropes, but everyone is so welcoming and fun I enjoy every moment and experience I’ve been thrown into!
My passion for the outdoors has driven me to complete the coast to coast 3 day bike ride challenge, three peaks 24 hour challenge, Great Glen Way kayak trail as well as running the Yorkshire Marathon. Later this year I will complete my Personal Training qualification and hope to inspire more people to get fitter whilst enjoying being outdoors as much as I do!
I have the best job in the world!! I’ve been a personal trainer since 2011 and karate instructor since 2012 I also run my own fitness classes for children and adults. I have been into fitness all my life and am passionate about exercise and want to pass that on. I love teaching/training at the Wild Forest as the scenery and conditions changes every day, to teach people the basics on the obsticals is so rewarding.
My qualifications are level 3 Personal Trainer, level 3 Pre-Post Natal, level 2 children in exercise 0-5 and 5-16, 2nd Dan Black belt karate, 1st Dan Black belt Kick Boxing, First Aider at work and Mental First Aid.
Dean Johnson became a Physical Training Instructor in the British Army in 1997, where he was responsible for the training and rehabilitation of over 300 soldiers. Upon leaving the Army in 2001, Dean obtained his qualifications as a Personal Trainer and Nutrition & Lifestyle Coach, and went on to open the Personal Training Studio in Leigh-on-Sea which he has been successfully running for over 15 years heading up a team of 7 trainers.
Even though Dean spent years training and instructing soldiers on Assault Courses, he did not begin to compete in OCR until 2005 when he entered his first Tough Guy – the world’s first OCR event. He then went on to compete in the winter Tough Guy event for 10 years consecutively, eventually achieving 16th place out of 3000 international competitors.
It was not until 2015 when Dean started to compete seriously by entering multiple national OCR events, including the Nuclear Races. That first year, he achieved 2nd place in the 40-44 age category at the UK OCR Championships, followed by 3rd in the 2016 European OCR Championships and 10th place in the World OCR Championships in Ontario, Canada.
2017 is still being written, but with 1st place at the OCR European Championships (40-44 division) in May, we will see what this year’s OCR World Championship has in store for Dean.
I was invited to attend an event at Nuclear and I was hooked. It led me to train to become a PT instructor and I’ve not looked back. You will always find me in the forest covered in mud having the best time.
I am a qualified level 3 personal trainer, a mum and a member of Wild Forest Team. I love obstacle racing & staying fit. I was the second lady to cross the finishing line at Nuclear Races Rush in 2020. My favourite race is Nuclear Races Challenge Cup even though I am not a big fan of the cold water. My favourite obstacle at Wild Forest is the rope climb. I have climbed Kilimanjaro, run the marathon twice and completed the three peaks 24hr challenge successfully. I love being a PT I find it rewarding and I like meeting new people too.
