A former Thai kickboxing champion has opened up a new gym in Chelmsley Wood.
Kickboxer Kirkwood Walker has opened FW Fitness using a package of Government-backed private funding.
He called upon business finance firm Central Business Development, to put together a package of Lloyds TSB Bank finance.
The funding was organised using the Government’s Enterprise Finance Guarantee, asset finance and funding through ART – a Birmingham and Solihull Community Lending Initiative.
He said: “Keeping FW Fitness membership fees low and giving customers lots of different options allows members to workout around their lifestyle, and not worry about the cost.”
FW Fitness opened for business on August 1, with 800 pre-registered members. The health and fitness club houses brand new state-of-the-art equipment, and offers a full timetable of exercise classes, including Zumba.
