Gary Kemp and PerformancePro



Gary Kemp and PerformancePro

Hear Spandau Ballet’s Gary Kemp talk about his love of cycling and his longstanding relationship with PerformancePro.

As with every other client, Gary’s training success is down to his own commitment and PerformancePro’s honest, down-to-earth ethos and tailored fitness approach.

Spandau Ballet rose to become a household name in the 1980’s, launching Gary Kemp’s career as a successful musician and well-respected songwriter. Away from his life in the music industry, Gary has developed a passion for spending time on two wheels, while keeping up with regular training sessions at PerformancePro.

Gary Kemp and PerformancePro

Last month, Journal hosted a special event featuring Gary Kemp and PerformancePro director, Anthony Purcell, who coaches Gary twice a week. During the discussion, recorded at PerformancePro on 27 Feb 2019, Gary tells us of his passion for cycling, his client/coach relationship with Anthony and the balance of living in London.

“I got into cycling about 10 years ago and discovered a real passion for the sport. I guess you could say it quickly became an obsession. I came to realise that cycling wasn’t only about spending time on the road, but about strength training to enable this. 

“Originally, I begun working with PerformancePro to develop my cycling technique, stamina and general fitness. I have trained with Anthony for a number of years now at PerformancePro. For me, having a trainer encourages me to push myself, and continues to further educate me about my own physical health.”

The conversation, hosted by Journal’s editor and founder, Kirk Truman, also featured Detox Kitchen’s Rob Hobson.
