The new partnership aims to provide improved fitness, nutrition and mental health support during the ongoing tough times.

Xbox boxing head coach Chris Boyle said: “Myself and Darren (Cooper, Lock Gym owner) have known each other since the age of five and have basically grown up side by side in Worksop.

“We’ve seen the best and worst of this town and we’ve both seen first hand how lifestyle and mental health can cause serious problems for local businesses and local people so we wanted to promote the benefits between us and make whatever local people need available at an accessible level.

Mr Cooper said: “The joining of the us both is a real show of unity needed in this town, I’ve just sponsored Chris’s pro fighters as a corporate sponsorship and we both want to give back massively to the people of this town to give them that much needed kickstart in these difficult times.”

The collaboration will offer discounted sessions and members discounts for using both facilities.
