Since the beginning of 2017, a number of TW Services employees started training to take part in a very challenging event - Breakpoint.
Breakpoint is a Special Forces course run by Matthew (Ollie) Otterton and Jason (Foxy) Fox, the instructors from Channel 4 Who Dares Wins.
The 18 members of staff who took park in this life changing day consisted of our Vehicle Technicians, HGV Drivers, Sales Managers, Directors, Machine Operators, and Supervisors. They all had different fitness levels and no one really knew what to expect. Training took place at Golden Gloves Boxing Academy at Manston where they have been boxing training and running several times a week. They've also been watching what they ate. No amount of training could have prepared them mentally or physically for what was in store for them though.
Early on the morning of Saturday 6th May the team arrived. Excited but anxious - all they knew is that it wasn't going to be a walk in the park.
It was tougher than they ever imagined but despite this everyone thought it was an amazing experience and a great opportunity to learn so much about each other as well as discovering their own strength and determination. Since doing the challenge, they have all continued their fitness regime by going to the gym, riding to work, and running regularly.
