“It’s great to see you now recognized nationally.”

Andrew, a young amateur boxer, opened his gym in 2013 at the age of 22.

Since then, customer base has grown steadily for various units, boot camps and new equipment.

Smokin ‘Guns were closed for several months during the outbreak, but this did not prevent staff from reaching their customers.

“The building was closed for more than a year,” Andrew adds.

“We were able to retain all our staff and we opened an outdoor gym to get people moving again.

“We have a lot of people who use the gym, including those who have trained for 30 or 40 years.

“The epidemic was severe for them, so the outdoors was a way for them to get out and see their mates, who were in good health.

“This appointment is a reward for his efforts during that time.”

Fitness Awards will be held on Friday, November 26 in Leicester.
