Genesis Gym History. Part 2.
We hadn’t been open long in 2012 when a old friend Scott Marsh turned up, looking to create a personal training space for his @xceleratefit company. We created a small room for him and it’s grown massively! We now have an incredible space for Xcelerate Fitness, with 3 full time trainers.
Still in 2012 and we had the luck of having @chadedwards1974 come along, he starts American Wrestling classes with us and joined the coaching team. He moved a few years ago and is still missed a great deal!
In the same year I wanted to up the quality of what we were doing, so I ask around for the top MMA coach in the area that we can link up with. @philipelse_mmapolymath keeps getting mentioned. So I pick up the phone and arrange a squad training. The journey with Phil Else begins. .
One year later and the next growth opportunity arrives, the unit next door was up for grabs and I risk it again. At the start of 2013 we nearly doubled our space, building a new reception area, toilets, a new gym area, car parking spaces and most importantly a front entrance. .
2013 and the worlds best looking 4 stripe purple belt (now black belt) @paxtonbjj arrives at the gym. He starts talking to us about BJJ. We speak to @capelkev - the main man in the area for BJJ and now we have BJJ here, with @chriscleere and @paxtonbjj teaching. .
A very long time black belt Kickboxing student @bearphils returns from travelling. I sit him down and show him that Martial Arts can be a real deal career. He comes on board full time as a coach and hasn’t looked back since.
Part 3 to follow! .
