Save MST from closing

MST Fitness is a strength and conditioning gym that was opened 2.5 years ago to provide an elite facility for people training strength in the Lancaster and Morecambe area. 

Over the years it has not only provided a second home to all members but has also helped develop many athletes into elite national and world level competitors (in some cases champions) in Strongman, Powerlifting, Crossfit and Olympic Weightlifting, this wouldn't have been possible at any other location in the area as MST is the only gym with the specific, specialised equipment to train with and one of the best strength coaches in the country and top 10 strongest u90kg men in the world. 

The council want to close our home because they don't want a leisure facility located on an industrial estate, even though over the year they have accepted other offers e.g. Crossfit Lancaster. We are fighting the closure of our gym because we will be left with nowhere in the area to train for our specific sports/careers, and especially nowhere with such a warm and friendly community. We used to train at Salt Ayre but had to move due to the refurbishment, as management said specifically for 'no strongman equipment'. 

If you talk to any of the members of MST you will receive nothing but positivity and hear how this gym and it's members have changed their lives for the better. MST isn't just a gym, it's a place to escape the daily grind, relieve stress and to challenge yourself daily, resulting in many long-term friendships. Independent gyms are slowly disappearing around the country but they offer something that many of their commercial counterparts do not. They have specialist equipment that you will not find anywhere else and cater for a wider spectrum of fitness training.
