Gambaru’s literal translation ‘to be the best you can be’ misses its deeper meaning – in Japanese culture Gambaru is about ‘going beyond what you think you can achieve’.

Sound inspirational? That’s what we think…when you’re stretching the boundaries you need a place that motivates the soul and being surrounded by others on the same journey can’t fail to lift the spirit. It also raises the bar and helps you over.

Two years after Jonathan Walker bought this gym he lost his left eye to cancer. It was 2008; he was 33 and had just won the silver medal at the British Power Lifting Championship. Lying in hospital he decided to change the name and ethos, it was the best decision I’ve ever made. The spirit of Gambaru and its members have pulled him though and it can do the same for you.
