P10 fittness academy launches with help from Peel
Liverpool Waters owner and developer, Peel Land & Property, has introduced P10 fitness entrepreneur Simon Lannon to the City of Liverpool College to help instigate the launch of the P10 Fitness Academy.
P10 fitness, set up by Simon Lannon in 2009 involves regular training sessions with people from local businesses at Princes Dock, the ideal area for outdoor training in the business district.
The P10 Fitness Academy is a new venture for Simon, linking up with the City of Liverpool College to offer a first class training program in exercise and fitness with the potential of employment for students once they complete the courses.
Students on the course will learn about all aspects of exercise and sports massage, including: treatment planning, assisting with tissue repair, providing professional practice and providing post-treatment care.
Elaine Bowker, Principal of The City of Liverpool College said:
“The training academy with P10 is a great initiative which will help our students to pursue a career in sports and fitness. It’s also a great example of employers working hand in hand with education to develop students with the skills they need. This is the future of our skills agenda, led jointly by employers and education to provide students with the right skills and experience for the job opportunities available.”
Peel, who have supported Simon since he began this scheme, introduced him to other businesses in Princes Dock, leading to more members joining P10 and to new connections being built such as this.
Simon Lannon said:
“Since I set up P10 fitness it has always been a dream to set up an academy such as this with a local college. I am really thankful to Peel who have let me use their fantastic open space at the Princes Dock, perfect for training, and for putting me in touch with so many businesses in the region.”
“It is great to see the academy come together and I am keen to start work now with the City of Liverpool College and its students. The plan will be to grow their experience from physically training the groups with me on a regular basis and then there will be an opportunity for some of them to join P10 fitness as apprentices.”
Sarah Syvret, property manager at Peel Land & Property said:
“We have supported Simon from the start as he has got great will power and is a real mentor for those wanting to get fit. You look at his story and think, if he can do, then so can I – it’s inspiring.”
“Princes Dock is becoming a great place for outdoor exercising and we are pleased that the academy will use this space with its students. We are happy that Simon has been able to link up with the City College and wish him the best of luck with the P10 Fitness Academy.”
Ian Pollitt, development investment surveyor at Peel Holdings is also a Governor of the City of Liverpool College.
After spending 20 years of his life developing a health and fitness regime to help him battle a life threatening brain condition, including 40 operations on the brain, Simon has pushed himself to the extreme to get himself back in shape and set up P10 fitness.
