Kickboxer takes over gym

A PORTISHEAD gym that has expanded fourfold over the past two years has been bought by one of its members.

The Fitness Hub in Kestrel Court, Harbour Road is now under the new ownership of former World Kickboxing champion Andy Cleeves. Andy, who also runs a martial arts business across the South West, has taken over the gym from personal trainer Jayne Leaker, who will remain working at the gym.

Andy has already expanded the equipment range and says he has really enjoyed his first few weeks getting to know the members.

He said: “With my wealth of experience in the industry and having trained with some of the best fitness and conditioning coaches around the country, I am really excited about working with new and existing members in Portishead to help them reach their goals.”

Renovations are already underway at the gym and Andy is bringing in more equipment and adding more classes before a launch day on January 14. This will be a free event for new and existing members with sample classes, demos, entertainment, fitness advice and special guests. To find out more about the gym or the open day call Andy on 01275 390502.
