A Corby gym celebrated its first birthday with a visit from two local sports stars.

Places Gym in Anne Street was visited by boxer Simon Barclay and gymnast Dan Keatings earlier this week.

The gym next to the Willow Place Shopping Centre prides itself on providing everything gym-goers need at a fraction of the price of health clubs.

It has more than 100 stations with top-of-the-range equipment and no ties of a membership contract.

Cruiserweight boxer Barclay was recently defeated in an English title bout with Matty Askin in Liverpool.

All-round gymnast Keatings has won medals at the Commonwealth Games and World Championships.
