Retired Men’s Association hosts marathoner, Jean-Paul Desrosiers Jr.

Retired Men’s Association welcomes Jean-Paul Desrosiers Jr. who will talk about his experience in the Marathon des Sables, a 156-mile, five-day race across the African desert on Wednesday, July 20, at First Presbyterian Church, Lafayette Place, Greenwich. Desrosiers will talk about the physical and mental journey he took to prepare for and complete the race.

Jean-Paul Desrosiers Jr. is a Marine Corps veteran, cyclist, marathoner, and owner of Sherpa Inc., a cycling and fitness center based in Westport.

Jean Paul Desrosiers has been running, cycling, skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, and swimming throughout his life. He has completed marathons and triathlons, and was a semi-pro cyclist. But he’s not just an enthusiast; he’s also a trained professional. He has a degree in exercise science and is also a certified personal trainer who shares his wealth of knowledge with clients using his “experience training” technique. Jean loves adventure. His company, Sherpa Fitness in Westport,  isn’t just a gym. He likes to point outside and say, “Out there…that’s the real gym. The real gym is infinite.”

The Greenwich Retired Men’s Association offers a free program every Wednesday that is open to the public, both men and women; no reservations are required. Our social break starts at 10:40AM followed promptly by our speaker at 11:00AM.  Programs are at the First Presbyterian Church, 1 West Putnam in Greenwich.  For additional information see or contact [email protected]
