A gym that has a special tribute to Britain’s war heroes is holding a fundraising event this weekend.

A year ago Top Body Gym in Gorleston opened its latest expansion The Trench.

Dug out in the basement of the current premises, The Trench targets athletes and members focusing on extreme power and performance, by offering Olympic platforms, a MonoLift, Eleiko Olympic weights and bars, and, other top of the range strength and conditioning equipment.

However, what makes The Trench stand out, is its patriotic theme, paying tribute to those who fought in World War one and World War two, with the main feature being an impressive mural depicting a scene from the Battle of the Somme.

On Sunday Top Body Trench will be holding an annual push/pull strength competition starting after the one minute silence at 11am.

All proceeds raised from the competition will go to the James Paget University Hospital’s children’s ward which is currently fundraising to raise £6,000 to purchase an interactive floor play screen for the ward.

Scott Graysmark, manager of Top Body Gym said: “I wanted to create a unique space in the gym which would inspire those who want to dig deep and focus on extreme performance. Coming from a military background I understand the discipline and sacrifice which comes from serving your country, and, the similar qualities that strength athletes and powerlifters need to achieve their personal goals.

“It has been an exciting project for Top Body Gym and it means we can now offer even more facilities to suit the different ages and abilities of our members, whilst paying tribute to our fallen heroes, as well as those who continue to serve our country.”
