Manager Gary Haveron has asked www.Glentoran.com to pass on his sincere thanks to all at John Neill Dedicated Fitness Gym for accommodating the entire first team squad training session at very short notice on Saturday 4th March.
Gary told the website: “With no match on Saturday we’d planned a full training session but due to weather conditions it had to be cancelled late in the day. We couldn't get another pitch or another venue to train at such short notice so Dedicated Fitness GYM came to the rescue very quickly by offering us full use of their facilities in Townsend Street.
Our session was at 11:30. The team there were able to adapt with injured players using the main gym, etc while the rest completed the circuit programme.
They gave the entire squad a full work out where their trainers put the boys through a circuit programme. They also gave the boys free memberships to use when ever it suits them.
I would like to personally thank John Neill and his team for accommodating us at his fantastic gym. The boys will definitely feel the benefits of that in the next day or two and it's something we will look to build on in the further ... to improve our strength and conditioning, Thanks again to John and his staff and we look forward to returning again sometime soon.”
John Neill, owner of the gym, said: "It was great having the guys in from Glentoran F.C. today. From start to finish the guys put in a hard shift and pushed themselves to the limit every round". I look forward to welcoming the boys back to Dedicated Fitness in the near future"
