Chelsea footballer Charlie Colkett was on hand to open a new gym, Vision Fitness, in Henham on January 7.
The midfielder cut a ribbon and the gym held an open weekend offering free yoga and pilates classes.
There was also a seminar by rowing champion, Adam Ling, and beauty treatments. The gym has been opened by Ollie Emsden, 24, a former professional footballer for Crawley Town youth team.
Ollie played for a second division team in Cyprus called Apep FC, then went on to play in Scotland for Greenock Morton.
He took a course as a professional trainer when he returned to England and said: “I loved it and started to train clients.
“I approached a farmer about one of his old corrugated barns and asked him if he wanted to do it up with a view to me turning it into a gym. I came up with the layout of the different rooms and then had to kit it out.”
