“ART was amazing; the best. All our dealings with them were pain free!”
Former world professional Thai boxer Kirkwood Walker opened FW Fitness in Chelmsley Wood with the aim of providing training programmes and classes that would attract the ‘hard to reach’ groups in the area.
Starting with newly built premises, Kirkwood needed capital to invest in fitting out the empty shell as a fully functional contemporary gym. Through a broker, he was able to secure a package of finance from a bank lending alongside ART.
Membership grew to 1,500 in two years and Kirwood came back to ART for a top up loan to support further growth through the purchase of more equipment and increased promotional activity.
