Ant Middleton has become a much-loved master of extreme adventure and a true leader of positive mind set. Spurred by his formidable career in the UK’s elite forces, including the Marines, 9 Parachute Squadron and Special Boat Service. Joining the armed forces at the age of 16, Ant earned the position of a point man/lead scout as well as a primary fires operator and sniper, before eventually earning a place in the Special Forces Selection, achieving the ‘Holy Trinity’ of the UK’s Elite Forces.
Ant is synonymously known for his role as Chief Instructor on SAS: Who Dares Wins, and has now taken his practice across the globe, to help form SAS Australia. With an insatiable appetite for adventure, Anthas fronted many other hit shows from ‘Mutiny’, a show that re-enacted Captain William Bligh’s famous ‘Mutiny on the Bounty’ to survivalist programme Escape, centred on placing skilled engineers in precarious situations, whereby they must use their skills to escape their predicament and get to safety. 2019 saw him conquer one of the biggest feats known to man, Mount Everest, in the show Extreme Everest. Whilst getting trapped in an unexpected, life-threatening storm, he seeks to understand the attraction of such a popular, but dangerous challenge.
Since 2017, Ant has regularly toured sold out venues in the UK with his live ‘Mind Over Muscle’ show. His third tour will be hitting theatres and arenas this October/November and next year he will be taking the Mind Over Muscle show international, as he heads out to Australia and New Zealand. In 2019, Ant ran his ‘Mind Over Muscle Day Camps’ supporting individuals to realise their full potential.
Ant’s publishing has also reached record heights. His trilogy of non-fiction, including First Man In, The Fear Bubble and Zero Negativity have all been Sunday Times Best Sellers, earning him gold status at the Nielsen Awards. Ant’s debut fiction thriller, Cold Justice, will be published in October 2021 along with his latest non-fiction release, Mental Fitness, being published later this year.
