With the help of the recently rebranded Indie Cambridge - the community of ‘real’ Cambridge - Cambridge Network continues its weekly exploration of the best independent shops, cafés, restaurants, people, businesses, venues and events in Cambridge and the surrounding area. This week: Milan Fitness.
Explore Indie Cambridge - Milan Fitness
Gyms can be intimidating spaces, but the beauty of Milan Fitness - an indie based at Shelford Rugby Club - is that the focus is on inclusivity, about helping people, whatever their gender, age or capabilities. Of course director Tony Begovich offers expertise to elite athletes (one client is a motorsport professional) but he’s equally happy helping retirees increase verve (another regular is a sprightly 82-year-old), or rehabilitating those in chronic pain.
New Zealander Tony studied sports science and worked with various Auckland rugby teams, before jetting over to play for Darlington Mowden Park RFC. Heading to Cambridge in 2008, he played for Shelford Rugby Club, managed a Harston gym, then launched Milan Fitness (named after his grandfather) in 2016.
Tony has created an inspiring, open-plan gym, with a strength and conditioning area (equipped with free weights, dumbbells, kettlebells, racks and benches), cardio vascular machines, a multi-gym, and an upper level workout space.
Tony works alongside personal trainer Grant Anderson, a former professional rugby player, and the pair offer flexible PT sessions, outdoor bootcamps, and corporate wellbeing services. If you’re looking to lose a few pounds, gain muscle or boost energy levels, in a friendly environment (with free parking), it’s time to talk to Tony!
