Our coach got his job at the gym because of his answer to a question on the job application about what type of work his military service had prepared him for. His SAS cloak and dagger work trained him to be brutally honest and so he put down - Explosives, murder, arson and assassination. We found a note written in his employee folder by the owner - "Perfect for the elite squad girls"
