Students put through their paces

Navy Fit 2 webA NAVY officer put Public Services students through their paces on a recent visit to Priestley College.

Leon Taylor, a Royal Navy fitness instructor, challenged the learners with ZUU – registered training style based around ‘primal pattern’ body weight exercises.

Each exercise builds up strength and fitness, but does so using body weight rather than equipment.

“They have been constructed into high intensity full body workouts with very specific sequences,” said Leon.

“Every workout targets all major and minor muscle groups while engaging both the aerobic and the anaerobic systems. Basically that means every time you do a ZUU workout it will be one of the most comprehensive and intense experiences you’ll ever do.”

Priestley offers Public Services courses that aim to prepare students for direct entry into a range of Public Services or university course.

Former students have entered the Army, Navy, RAF, Royal Marine Commandos and Police. While others have gone on to study Policing, Criminology, Law, Sociology, Sport, Outdoor Activities and Criminal Justice.
