Shannan trains the same way he lives his life – with respect plus integrity, physical and mental discipline as well as strength in body and mind.
Outside of his work on THE BIGGEST LOSER Shannan has written his first book and has kicked off Shannan Challenge – an 8 week online weight loss program with the Biggest Loser Club.
Away from work Shannan is a proud, doting father to Maximus and still refuses to grow up himself. He boxes professionally, surfs, skates and constantly looks for new challenges to get him out of his comfort zone.
Shannan says “I’ve been a very proud CanTeen ambassador for over 5 years now. It’s a charity that I’m totally committed to and passionate about. It gives me the chance to combine the two favorite aspects of my life; health and fitness and helping others.
“By raising more than a sweat for CanTeen at fun runs or other activity events, participants get fit and healthy by training, then running in an event! But that’s not all, by gaining sponsorship they raise money for CanTeen’s work supporting young people living with cancer – which is more importantly healthy for your soul!
“I’ve had the honor of attending CanTeen programs and speaking directly to the young people affected by cancer. I have seen and felt first-hand the amazing impact CanTeen has had on these beautiful young people.”
In 2015, Shannan was CanTeen’s ambassador at the Sydney City2Surf and the City-Bay Fun Run in Adelaide.
