For the last few weeks, Garforth Town have taken advantage of local facilities as they have been training at the Virgin Active gym on St George Street in active

After they were  given a 2 week free membership by the gym, Garforth Town Manager Steve Nichol decided to accept the offer and the team have benefitted as a result. With the weather as bad as it has been, training would have been made much easier and enabled players to fully prepare for their up-coming matches. In the past few years, Physical strength has become a crucial aspect within football, which is one of the main reasons why Steve took this offer. Their recent results on the field are very encouraging and this could be down to the work done in the gym.

Membership Consultant, trainer and ex-player, Abbas Sadeghian, felt both Garforth Town and the gym could reap the benefits of this agreement and said:

The session we ran with the lads was quality for many reasons -  making people aware of local teams (Garforth Town), To show people the levels of performance that can be achieved within classes through the players and also advertisement for our self and your club

I did the sessions to see if we could set anything up with the club to work with the players on a one to one basis in order achieve maximum performance. “

It is yet to be seen whether or not Garforth Town will continue to use the gym but it’s something that the squad have enjoyed doing for the past few weeks.
