£2m investment for Canterbury


Canterbury Academy will be receiving a £2m fitness centre after striking a deal with Swedish businessman Carl Gripenstedt. Gripenstedt, who is a director at Competition Line, will give the academy the funding to create a 836sq m (9,000sq ft) fitness area that will offer over 140 resistance and cardiovascular machines. As part of the overhaul, an additional floor


will be added to the existing building to make space for a new dance studio, group cycling studio and ladies-only gym. 3G surfaces have been laid on two new five-a-side pitches and the Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) has seen similar improvements. In addition, a new coffee shop is planned at the site and additional car parking spaces are also being created. The gym will offer low-cost memberships to the public: £15.99 per month.


Obese young men suffer health issues as they age


Young men who are obese in their early 20s are significantly more likely to develop serious health problems by the time they reach middle age, according to new research. The authors tracked the health of 6,500

The research found obese participants were eight times as likely as their normal weight peers to get diabetes, four times as likely to suffer potentially fatal blood clots, and twice as likely to have a heart attack.
