Joe is a super fit dude but is he really the worlds fittest ? I seriously doubt it. Paddy Doyle an ex paratrooper from the UK is also making a similar claim.


Well lets face it within certain careers such as elite military units, forestry lumberjacks etc there are many individuals that are super fit. Far beyond the norm even by athletic standards.

The Guiness book of records sets a standard and records it for all to see.
