Anytime Fitness Cosham

Known as ‘Tiny’, Ian has always loved sport and being active. Based in Portsmouth and now aged 50 years, Ian had a career in the pharmaceutical industry before his life took an unexpected turn. During several years, it was unknown to Ian that he had a genetic condition which meant he was losing his sight. Ian experienced a near-miss car crash and before too long, he was diagnosed with having no useful vision. As a result, Ian temporarily stopped playing sport to adapt to his new lifestyle.

Despite experiencing day-to-day struggles, Ian ensured sport and activity remained a regular part of his lifestyle after joining his local blind cricket team. Before too long, Ian came across Anytime Fitness Cosham after being attracted by the club’s friendly culture and 24/7-member access. Having changed jobs to becoming a senior strategic programme manager at Guide Dogs UK, Anytime Fitness Cosham’s accessibility meant Ian can break up his day between his job and gym routine. Accompanying Ian to each of his club visits is his golden retriever, Millsy of whom proves to be a popular addition among Ian’s Anytime Fitness peers!
