Ross Edgley on Tour: World’s Fittest Live Show
30th December, 2018
Join The Outdoor Swimming Society’s newest ambassador in 2019 at the World’s Fittest Live Show (The Great British Swim Edition)
Ross Edgley made history in 2018 by doing what no man has ever done before, completing a 2,000 mile, 157 day swim around mainland Great Britain.
In 2019 he’s going on tour: with The World’s Fittest Live Show combining the teachings of The World’s Fittest Book with the learnings from 23 weeks at sea, including commentary and confessions from the the Great British Swim.
A graduate of sports science at Loughborough University, Ross spent 10 years prior to The Great British Swim on a global fitness pilgrimage, turning to Ecuadorean rodeo stars, Oxford rowers, Bulgarian weight lifters, Siberian reindeer herders, Soviet wrestling champions, British Royal Marines and Japanese warrior chiefs to learn the laws of fitness. From this he wrote The World’s Fittest Book (now a No.1 Sunday Times Best Selling Book) which challenges traditional views of physical fitness, and changed our perception of mental fortitude with his historic swim around Great Britain.
Ross is the OSS’s newest ambassador, championing the renegade spirit of outdoor swimmers and adventurers the world over.
Expect tales from the world’s longest staged sea swim, and “physical and mental fitness secrets that will allow you to unlock your superhuman physical potential”.
‘The Great British Swim was an amazing adventure,’ says Ross (who’s now joined the OSS team), ‘and one day I will tell the grandchildren about it, but most importantly I hope it’s inspired others to embark on aquatic adventures of their own. For me, that’s still my favourite part of the great swim and in 2019 I can’t wait to be part of other people’s stories, supporting the community the way the community supported me.’
