To create a network of physically and mentally capable individuals that pursue the attributes of strength of character, integrity, confidence, composure, perseverance and grit
Some Men’s groups can be described as brotherhoods. There is an unquestionable bond forged between men under particular circumstances that can lead to the formation of these brotherhoods. This is most evident within units of our military. Shared hardship is one of the fundamental techniques military’s across the world use when training men to operate in teams. The relationships and sense of belonging created under these difficult conditions is unlike that found in other walks of life.
The Green Mile Movement applies many tried and tested military techniques as well as other pursuits to develop certain attributes in its members. Men of all backgrounds and all abilities. Important areas like; physical, mental strength, integrity, confidence, composure, perseverance and grit
How did this begin? What started in 2018 as a few random guys training calisthenics together has since grown into a brotherhood that meet every week to test ourselves physically. The sessions are free, but require members to meet in different locations each week in and around Cardiff and the surrounding mountains. All you will know is where, when and what to bring. You discover the ‘challenge’ when you arrive. All to be expected of you is to work hard and get involved. Leave with a sense of accomplishment and a stronger body and mind.
Chris Flynn, Founder
Chris Flynn, the Founder of TGMM served for over 12 years in the UK military where he operated in various roles within the Airborne and Commando Forces on multiple oversees deployments. After leaving the forces and working all around the world, Chris moved home to the UK in 2017 and through working as a Health Safety Security and Environmental Consultant he found concern with the state of men’s physical and mental health and felt compelled to do something about it.
The Green Mile Movement was born as an extension of Chris’ belief that all men (and women for that matter) should be capable of dealing with the difficulties of life and a way of achieving this is through arduous physical training and personal sacrifice.
