After 2 years of training, the current home of the gym was acquired for the expansion of Just in gyms which succeeded for a further 2 years before the decision was made to share the benefits of the expansive range of equipment within the local community.
Now after 2 ½ years, 250 members walking through the doors and millions of kg’s lifted, Liam made the decision to make the gym widely available for members and personal training clients alike. He combined his love for fitness and his surname “Rushmer” to create Fitness Rush, a new breed of gym.
Away from the heavy banging of mainstream gyms, Liam prides the gym on its friendly but focused training atmosphere and is proud to see the transformations that occur from the gym he worked so hard to build.

If I had to describe fitness in one word, it would be life. However, this wasn’t always the case after all, I am human. After living my early twenties in a live for today fashion, I found myself in a world of despair which wasn’t helped by my unhealthy ways and thrivelous lifestyle, eating and drinking what and when I wanted. It was going to take something dramatic and that unfortunately came in the shape of a 44-tonne lorry. I was hit at speed whilst I was stationary at the side of the road. This near-death experience was the exact wakeup call I needed.
Shortly after, during my rehabilitation I was introduced to light weight training to build up strength in my weakened muscles. This brought back memories of my late teen years and the hours spent in the local gym with friends. The rest as they say is history. I then proceeded to purchase a set of weights and slowly took over my parent’s garage with vital pieces of training equipment. As my new home gym grew, so did my passion for fitness. With the change of older equipment came the purchase of more up to date exercise machines and the start of my gym equipment sales business.
After selling smaller items from home, I acquired a barn at a local farm which quickly became 3 storage containers with the growth of the company. From the farm, I moved to the current home of the gym which was my show room and storage facility. The business was thriving and so was my enthusiasm for the industry, but I wanted more, I wanted to reach people on a personal level, not just through the sale of fitness equipment. And then the gym was born.
I swiftly completed my personal training qualifications and proceeded to transform my drab storage unit into something I am proud to call a friendly local gym today. There have been positive changes along the way and these will continue to happen, all in the best interests of my clientele.
I believe everyone’s values and priorities are different in life, but everyone deserves the same level of respect you expect yourself. Something which has always stayed with from my early training days is the expression, ‘Winner’s never quit, quitters never win`. I believe anything is possible with the right mind set, but it’s impossible if you quit. So, the only thing to do is ‘don’t quit`. Sometimes it might feel like the mountain is too high or the journey is too long but with a positive mental attitude, self-belief and lots of willpower, our furthest goals are with in touching distance. With my values in mind, I feel it necessary to install these into the gym and encourage my clients towards this positive way of thinking. This helps drive individuals further coupled with our cutting-edge training systems.
Willpower - is the ability to control our thoughts and the way we behave. With an increase in self-control, it is much easier to eat healthily, exercise regularly and achieve our most challenging goals.
Inspiration - fill someone with the urge or ability to do or feel something, especially to do something creative. The more I am in inspired, the more I want to inspire others.
Nurture - the care and attention given to someone or something that is growing or developing. Through development, we grow and become more advanced.
Nutrition - Your body needs nutrients to survive and stay healthy. This is the starting point of any fitness program and the key to well-being.
Efficacy (Self) - is the extent or strength of one's belief in one's own ability to complete tasks and reach goals. Those who have a strong belief in their capabilities exert greater effort when they fail to master the challenge.
Respect - a feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements. I consider each person to be of equal worth to myself.
After joining Fitness Rush two years ago and training with Liam periodically, I have seen continued progress and success which I've never found from training alone. The friendly atmosphere coupled with Liam's fitness knowledge is second to none. If it's results you're looking for, then this is the place for you!!
Nice gym with a good range of equipment for both weight training and cardio. Members respect each other, and the equipment. The owner, Liam, is friendly and welcoming. Used the gym for a couple of months whilst I was in the area between house moves, but I wouldn't hesitate to make it my regular gym if I lived in the area permanently.
I started my journey 2 weeks ago and must say I am very pleased with the results so far .most gyms can be very nerve racking for most but feel very comfortable with it all. A big thank you to Liam for guiding me to achieve my goals.
Absolutely amazing gym, I have been having personal training sessions with Liam and he is absolutely fab!! I feel fitter and stronger and can't wait to see more results. Would definitely recommend Liam and the gym to everyone as it has a great atmosphere and everyone in there is very friendly.
What I like about Liam is that he knows how to motivate people, he makes each training session challenging but rewarding. I would have no hesitation in recommending Liam and Fitness Rush as your personal trainer if you want to achieve your fitness and health goals.
Liam is always motivational - always keeps the encouragement going even though you may just want to give up!! His personable approach and great sense of humour makes the experience a pleasure rather than a chore! Would highly recommend both Liam and his Gym.
I have been at Fitness Rush with Liam for the last six months. I love coming into the gym as it has a very welcoming atmosphere for a female going into the weights section at the gym this can be a very daunting, however at this gym I feel completely relaxed and everyone is willing to help if needed.
Since training with Liam I have learnt so much about fitness and my eating habits and this has resulted in me going from a size 16 in jeans now down to a size 12 (Nearly a size 10). I have not only lost weight and gone down in clothes sizes but I now feel happy with the way my body is looking for the first time in a long time.
I could not recommend this gym enough and Liam's personal training sessions are amazing and I love the fact that he tailors it to me as I have certain problems with my back and wrists and he always thinks about this when doing my sessions. Anyone wanting to start your story needs to sign up to this gym as all the equipment and staff are amazing!!!!
There is a lovely friendly atmosphere in this gym. I didn’t think as a female I’d have the confidence to go alone but I’ve not had that problem attending fitness rush! Liam is so friendly and is always there to help and guide in the way he feels it is best for you! I’ve only had one personal training session with Liam and this is something before I would never dream of signing up for but it was so much easier with a trainer who makes you feel welcome, when I attend without a training session Liam always asks how I am and how my session was after! The gym is very accommodating and I couldn’t recommend it more!!
I had Liam train me whilst I was visiting the UK for a couple of months last year. The progress I made under his guidance and knowledge was amazing, along with being serious towards the training, we also had a laugh and I made a friend for life. Highly recommended to anyone of any age or size!
Great gym but even better trainer. Located in a good area close to St Ives and Huntingdon. All the equipment you need with good prices to train.
It’s got everything you need to do all sorts of workouts/exercises. Liam is very helpful and so are the other members. A very comfortable environment to exercise in but a place where you can also challenge yourself and work out hard. Top gym, would recommend!
Great gym compared to those in the area. The weight equipment is really good and has a bigger selection of kit than many gyms with a more basic range. Plenty of bars, benches and machines to go around. There’s a great atmosphere within the gym and everyone tends to know each other. Liam along with the other PT’s who train there are always happy to help and give advice if you ask.
Found this gym very welcoming and Liam helped me challenge myself and set goals. Would definitely recommend to anyone who is a bit nervous about joining a gym. Liam is very welcoming and gives help & guidance where needed.
I have been having PT sessions with Liam and I have to say he's professional, inspiring and keeps you motivated throughout. I saw results within 2 weeks and he opened my eyes to training in a different way through weights and endurance, without having to kill myself with cardio. He's highly recommend. Thanks Liam
As I come to the end of my sessions with Liam my PT, my fitness has improved, my strength and stamina has grown and my weight loss continues. I've really enjoyed my sessions. Liam is approachable, friendly, skilled and super supportive. I can't recommend him and his gym enough.
Liam provides an exceptional one on one personal training service in his very well appointed gym. Each week my session is varied and challenging, allowing me to eat more cake during the week! I'd highly recommend Liam to anyone looking for a comprehensive and tailored service away from the stereotypical gyms!
Liam has been training me for a number of months; it's great - I turn up, he tells me what to do and catches anything I can't lift. He changes the exercises each session, and he is able to work around my problems (I am 70 years old, and have hip arthritis and a slipped disk from long ago). This is the first gym I have used, and I have found it extremely successful. There is a good range of equipment - both machines and free weights. Liam offers personal training, and pay as you go sessions, where you turn up and use the equipment unsupervised, which is cheaper. Altogether, excellent.
I really enjoy the time I spend at Fitness Rush with the expert advise of Liam. The customer service you get from Fitness Rush, that has been built up by a local fitness expert is miles better then a large chain or franchise. I recommend any man or woman to give it a try.
Many people have various reasons for losing weight, mine was for medical reasons. I needed to lose 10% of my starting body weight and bring my BMI down to below 32. I was given a 3 months time frame. I had already joined a mainstream gym many months before with little success, and also tried all the fad diets. Liam is my brother in law, he had already got himself in to exceptional shape, so I asked him for help. He worked out a healthy eating plan and a workout routine that I could do at home or in the gym. He also tailored it to fit around my unusual lifestyle, as I work though the night. We also had weekly weigh ins and as I progressed, he changed my workouts to make the most of my increasing level of fitness. So in 3 months I lost 2 stone and got my BMI down to 29. So with his help I exceeded my goal. I know it's hard to put yourself in someone else's hands, but sometimes we need that one to one guidance to help us achieve our goals. I believe Liam gave me this. 3 year's on, I now maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle on my own thanks to Liam.
