This workout is dedicated to Sergeant Gavin Hillier, of 1st battalion Welsh Guards, who was shot on March 4, 2021, during training under the cover of darkness. Hillier, 35, who had served in Iraq and Afghanistan, was training with live ammunition before a planned deployment to Iraq this summer.

During his Army career Sergeant Hillier was deployed to operational theatres including Afghanistan, Iraq and Kosovo, and in 2019 was awarded the Long Service and Good Conduct medal by the colonel of the regiment, Prince Charles. At the time of his death he was serving as the motor transport colour sergeant.

Captain R Beckett CG, sergeant Hillier’s platoon commander, said:

“I am proud, grateful and honoured to have had sergeant ‘Gav’ Hillier as my CSgt [colour sergeant]. Gav’s style of leadership always got the best out of the platoon and his personality was infectious. He was my rock when I needed guidance, never afraid to offer me advice, and a fierce Welshman.”

Sergeant Hillier was survived by his wife, Karyn, and sons Declan and Connor. Mrs Hillier said the soldier would live on through his boys. In a statement, they said:

“I thank you for the day you came into my life and made me your wife and became the father to our two beautiful boys. We are absolutely heartbroken and can’t express how proud we are of you. Our boys will continue to make you proud and you will forever live on through them. Daddy, we are not ready to say goodbye just yet so until we meet again, we love you always. Love, your heartbroken wife and boys.”

The workout was designed by Jo Price @jopricept who served with Sgt. Hillier in the British Army for over 8 years.
