Uniformed and public services students at TyneMet College were put through their paces by three Royal Marine Commandos.
To whip the students into shape after their Christmas break, the Commandos started the training session with a cardio vascular warm up followed by a series of endurance exercises.
The pupils were also introduced to fast-paced team work activities linked to strength and the session concluded with relay activities to help the students warm down.
A presentation giving students an insight into the Royal Marine’s operation activity and intense training practices was then delivered by the Commandos.
Warick Stephenson, head of care, sport and leisure at TyneMet, said: “This training session was very tough on the students and many found it hard to complete the whole session, however others did exceptionally well and impressed the Marines delivering the training.
“The students found the presentation to be very motivational.”
