          “I had a vision of creating the UK’s first gym & assault course facility”

          15 years in the fitness industry & I have achieved things that I couldn’t never think to imagine! I had a vision 5 years ago to set up the first gym & assault course in the UK & here we are! My journey has been incredible and I’ve worked with some amazing people along the way, helped changed life’s, transformed peoples physiques & educated thousands of people along the way!
