MODEL Calum Best helped launch the Henley Fight Club.
His mother, Angie Best, who runs Metaphysical Gym in the grounds of Henley Business School, has set up the boxing club at a new venue off Marlow Road.
Her partner, Mark Miller, who works in professional sport, will run the club and offer one-to-one training for men and women.
Mr Best said: “I think the fight club is a great idea. Mark has been teaching me boxing since I was 15 and my friends and I like it because we get in shape while having fun. Boxing is tough but you have fun doing it — 20 minutes go by and you don’t even realise how seriously you are working because you are so focused and you are learning a new skill.”
Ms Best said: “The club is a place where men in particular who don’t want to go the gym can come and get in shape and get their youth back.
“It’s a bit different from going to our gym because it will be like being a member of a fight club.”
She said membership of the club would be limited, adding: “We will be keeping it small because that way we can be friendly.”
