We recently had Ian Lazenby and his team of Portishead Lifeboat Crew join us at the gym for a hub style beasting! The 20 strong crew embarked on a 1hr gruelling session with gym owner and former World Kickboxing Champion Andy Cleeves. The session took place in the studio and its purpose was to take each member of the crew outside their comfort zone and put them under severe physical pressure. All of the crew members showed tremendous spirit and attitude as they were drilled through unknown routines and pushed to their limits. Everyone came through the other side and demonstrated their dedication to the outstanding voluntary work they do. Well done to everyone who took part and gave it their all.
Rio Williams and Cory Cook who train every Monday night at the Kids Kung Fu and Kickboxing Class were recently crowned Bristol Open 2013 Champions. The competition took place Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th October at the City Academy in Bristol. The event attracted fighters from 17 different countries and is rated as the UKs toughest Sports Martial Arts Championships. Both fighters fought out of their skin to take first place in their respective divisions. We would also like to make a special mention to Portishead Fighter Pearce Cruse for an outstanding performance in his biggest competition to date.
Peter Dennis has cancelled kids karate, that usually takes place on a Wednesday at 5pm, until further notice.
Member and Bodybuilder Ian Scammell (pictured on the right of this photograph) was in action in Leamington Spa last weekend at the United Kingdom Drug Free Bodybuilding Association Championships (UKDFBA).
After a lot of hard work and dieting 46 year old Ian showed a great level of conditioned muscle to be awarded with a 3rd place in the over 40s category.
Well Done Ian
