Jacob said: “I love visiting the Arena, it has such great facilities such as functional training and the deadlifting platform. As I live close by joining was a no-brainer for me.

“I am chuffed and surprised to have won these prizes! It will help make this Christmas really special for my two young children. Thank you so much!”
