Local Lifeboat Crew get kicked into shape at the hub. everybody’s gym

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.1385728_486014678179391_1839378961_n 1382185_486008054846720_221493307_n 1390632_486009678179891_1687907370_n 564080_486009721513220_1498419251_n 1384329_486008204846705_372517361_n 1378311_486010291513163_871661262_n
