Meet Stuart Robinson, local resident of Morecambe and Royal Air Force veteran.

‘My name is Stuart Robinson and I’m a local resident of Morecambe. I’m a 16 year Royal Air Force veteran and now a Paralympics GB wheelchair Rugby Athlete.

Since suffering life changing Injuries in 2013 whilst serving in Afghanistan, my recovery, rehabilitation and now my future has been changed by the power of Sport. I first found Wheelchair rugby in 2014 and managed to gain a place on the Inaugural Invictus games squad for wheelchair rugby.

We were lucky enough to win gold that year and since then my life has literally snowballed though sport and wheelchair rugby. I was the rugby captain for the 2016 and 2017 Invictus Games and have since then been fortunate enough to classify in to be able to play for Team GB. Last year I was part of the Squad that went to Germany where we rained our title as European Champions and our aim this year is to go to the World championships in Sydney in August and medal.

Weekly I have two chair based sessions in Southport and Sheffield and the rest of the time is spent Strength and Conditioning at the Gym. A recent visit to your gym I was massively impressed with the sheer vast number of facilities, the professionalism, the 3-1-5 concept and the potential benefits it could bring me in both my sport and my rehabilitation. I believe that your gym will help me massively in my preparation not just for this year but also for next and then hopefully the Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020′. 

3-1-5 Health Club and the X-Force Academy team are delighted to welcome Stuart on board to assist with his training. Stuart has kindly volunteered to keep a blog of his training and stories whilst at 3-1-5 Health club and show his journey as part of Team GB. Lee Jones X-Force Master will be Stuarts designated trainer and we are certain they will make a winning team!

Good Luck Stuart and we look forward to hearing about your triumphs!
