F2FHQ 126 - Listen Up, SOTG is Never Wrong

Can we learn about fitness and nutrition from firearms experts?  YES!  A LOT!  Paul and Jarrad Markel of Student of the Gun are here to help us understand how a healthy body is the key to a healthy mind.  Listen in to hear our reunion after too long of being apart.

Welcome to the Fat2fit HQ podcast!  I’m your host Carol Salva of the Firearms Radio Network.  In this podcast we are chronicling our journey from Fat 2 Fit. We talk about pursuing a healthier lifestyle, not only in diet, but in all areas of life.


Paul Markel

Paul G. Markel has worn many hats during his lifetime. He has been a U.S. Marine, Police Officer, Professional Bodyguard, and Small Arms and Tactics Instructor. Mr. Markel has been writing professionally for law enforcement and firearms periodicals for nearly twenty years with hundreds and hundreds of articles in print. Paul is a regular guest on nationally syndicated radio talk shows and subject matter expert in firearms training and use of force.  Mr. Markel has been teaching safe and effective firearms handling to students young and old for decades and has worked actively with the 4H Shooting Sports program. Paul holds numerous instructor certifications in multiple disciplines; nonetheless, he is and will remain a dedicated Student of the Gun.

Jarrad Markel

Not just another pretty face, Jarrad Markel has experience and training beyond his years.  Jarrad has been training to be a fighter since elementary school when he first learned the art of collegiate wrestling.  Now skilled in Jujitsu, Judo, Muay Thai, Sambo, the Way of the Fighting Pistol and Fighting Rifle, Jarrad is a well-rounded, tactical athlete with several professional MMA fights under his belt.  More than a brute, Jarrad has brains as well. He is the lead editor and videographer for Student of the Gun and works directly for Think On! Productions creating a wide variety of video material. In addition, Markel is a skilled webmaster, building material for the Internet side of the house.

Paul’s new book, “Faith and the Patriot: a Belief worth Fighting for”
