Corps Strength

Corps Strength

By Paul J. Roarke

Get as fit as a U.S. Marine with a backyard fitness regimen created by a Master Gunnery Sergeant to stay battle-ready all year round.


For almost three decades as a U.S. Marine, Master Gunnery Sergeant Paul Roarke rigorously designed and tested a unique system to achieve and maintain a level of physical fitness that kept him battle-ready when he was away from hard-core Marine PT—Corps Strength.


Now, Master Gunny Roarke takes his tried-and-true regimen from the barracks to the backyard, showing you how to rapidly transform your body—the Master Gunny way. The best aspects of many training methods are incorporated into this program, including the Marine Corps staples, in-gym training and outdoor sports, such as:


• Pull-ups
• Push-ups
• Kettlebell Lifts
• Mountain Biking
• Boxing
• Backpacking
• Swimming
• Spinning
• Weighted-Vest Runs


Whether you’re a 20-year-old soldier in Kandahar or a 60-year-old grandpa in Kansas City, Master Gunny Roarke’s Corps Strength can get you in the best shape of your life for the rest of your life. This is real fitness for real people.
