For Cyrus Rustom, a 38-year-old former British military commando, maintaining fitness was a crucial part of his previous job.

However, reflecting on his journey, he realizes that a near-fatal accident was the turning point that led him to pursue a career in fitness and eventually become an entrepreneur.

“In 2006, I was caught between two military trucks in Afghanistan and suffered severe skull and joint injuries.
