One thing we feel passionately is shining the light on mental health. Men can sometimes find it hard to talk about and that’s why we wanted to share Baz’s story.
Baz is one of our Boxing Coaches here at the gym, he’s come a very long way and we are very proud of him. He was an alcoholic, spent most his time in pubs and started using drugs from an early age.
