As a young man Paddy was a hell-raiser. He would pick fights and get in trouble with the law. But he channelled his destructive energy into becoming a winner. His record of achievement is awesome. To date, Paddy Doyle holds 124 national, European and world fitness and martial arts records. Some of the toughest records he has smashed are: 1303 back-of-hands press ups in one hour; a 50 mile run wearing a 40 lb back back in 11 hours and 58 minutes and an incredible 5,000 sit ups with a 50 lb plate in five hours. This is the story of a man who is a true champion in both heart and mind, whose mental and physical determination to succeed have taken him from the back-streets of Birmingham to the brilliance of a world champion. His story is truly inspiring.
He's gone 110 rounds with 10 opponents to win the World Kumite Karate Boxing Championships. He's got the world record for the number of press-ups done in a year, he did over 1.5 million - that's over 4,000 a day! He's got the fastest time for running a marathon with a 50 lb backpack. There's nobody as tough as Paddy Doyle!
