065 - Making Firefighters Fit Again with Ian Palmer from Thin Line Fitness

Read more

On today's episode Brian and Kara welcome Ian Palmer from Thin Line Fitness to continue the discussion of fitness and the fire service.

About Thin Line Fitness (@thinlinefitness):

Thin Line Fitness was started in 2017. It started as a vision, though, many years ago. Ian was tired of seeing the rapid increase of cardiac and medical related LODD's across the field of first responders, as well as the increasing number of out of shape personnel. He made the dream come alive after he received his certification as a personal trainer and a solid nudge in the right direction by his group of close friends and his wife.

About Our Guest:

Ian is a professional firefighter at the Ridge Culver Fire Department right outside of the City of Rochester, New York. He found his love for physical fitness when he was 18. At the time he weighed 270 pounds. After his uncle died at an early age of health-related issues, he decided he needed to make a change since he didn't want to take the same path. He put the pedal to the metal, ate right, exercised regularly and intensely, and dropped to 150 pounds in a year. After that he joined the Air Force as a firefighter, where he still serves as a Technical Sergeant and Station Captain. He has deployed twice to the Middle East, which further increased his interest and knowledge in the physical fitness realm. Upon returning from his last deployment, his best friend and fellow firefighter, Matt, talked him into starting Thin Line Fitness. The gears turned, steps were taken, and it was finally started.

About our hosts:

Episode 8: Moving Matters with Ian Palmer of White & Co. PLC

Read more

In this episode, Ian Palmer, Chief Executive Officer of White & Co. PLC, discusses how he began in the industry some 43 years ago, starting at White & Co. in Plymouth which was ran by his father at the time.

We discover that Ian wanted to become a Geography Teacher, before trying to get into the Royal Navy as a Navigation Officer, but life on the vans soon took over and Ian became a second-generation remover, with his son Adam since becoming third-generation.

We discover that Ian is a really good packer, being both quick and efficient and how management training from White & Co. lead him to becoming an Estimator, Assistant Branch Manager at Forres in Scotland before returning to Plymouth to a become a Branch Manager himself.

We discuss that being made a Director of White & Co. at the mere age of 35 Ian relocated to Hertfordshire to run a newly opened branch in North London, while also managing branches in Jersey & Guernsey. And how in 2003 Ian moved to Head Office in Botley, Southampton to take over as Chief Executive Officer.

We discover that White & Co. PLC was founded by A.W. White in Portsmouth in 1871, working with the Royal Navy providing staff cartidge facilities in the dock yard, which then morphed into transportation and then removals. Today White & Co. have an impressive 19 branches, 210 vehicles and 460 staff, and are founder members of FIDI and OMNI.

We discuss how in Ian’s earlier years he had to overcome the challenge of being the boss’s son, and professionally how Ian is seemingly very impatient, which he has learned to curb a little.

We discover that becoming CEO of White & Co. was a personal high point for Ian, but also becoming the current BAR President was a pretty special occasion for him.

We discuss how the conveyancing situation is a major frustration, just one thing Ian would change within the industry, as well as it being unregulated.

We discuss archive storage, or records management to some, and discover that the digital age has not really affected business as the number of physical files currently being stored is the highest it’s ever been.

We discover that over the next 5 years Ian has no intention of retiring from his role as CEO of White & Co. At the end of his BAR Presidency (May 2021) Ian hopes to return to the Overseas Group Council. Ian predicts that the industry is going to make greater use of technology in the coming years, electric vehicles, perhaps even hydrogen, and there will be greater focus on shared facilities, operations, and resources.

Outside of the industry we discover Ian likes riding his motorcycle, fast, he enjoys watching rock bands at venues around the UK but also at a local Southampton venue, and that he has a passion for Cricket as the Rose Bowl is literally 500 metres from his home.

And as always we end Moving Matters with a couple of funny moving stories, one where Ian discovered that not all wood floats, and all White & Co. branch managers switch off now because we also learn how Ian came 2nd at a privateers track day, in his company car!

Even if you are just one person at your department that wants to start changing the culture you need to start and sooner or later that work will spread to others.

The Ian Palmer Interviews, Part 4

Read more

In this, the final part of the Ian Palmer interviews we find out about another life threatening concern that Ian had to deal with and how it led to a wonderful relationship.

After my many years in the world of aviation there aren’t many people I have met who would be willing to open up their lives in the way that Ian has done.  In doing so my regard and respect for him has done nothing but grow.  Should anybody listening feel that they want to seek Ian out to ask for his help or advice then please contact him at Ian@ianpalmer.com

Brain surgery isn’t for the faint hearted but Ian, with typical understatement, tackled it head on!

The Ian Palmer Interviews, Part 1

Read more

Ian Palmer’s life has hardly gone as smoothly as he might have wished.  Born into a family of musicians, particularly drummers including Carl Palmer of the band ELP, he started off as a very successful drummer himself.  What he didn’t know was that he suffered from a condition that carries great stigma and frequently leads to ruin and death… alcoholism.

This is the first part of an inspiring and brutally honest interview that follows his life from drumming into aviation.
