DREW

Founder, CEO

During his late teenage years and early twenties, Drew had a lot of success on the track, winning several northern championships and competing at the British Olympic trials following which Drew was awarded a sports scholarship to Adams State University in Colorado, USA. Here he studied human performance and physical education with a minor in business alongside competing in the National Collegiate Athletics Association.

Whilst in America Drew won several NCAA titles at both 1500m and 1 mile and in both individual and team capacities. He went on to work as an athletics coach. In 2014 after a shallow dive accident, he broke his neck and suffered a spinal cord injury leaving him quadriplegic.

 

Following a year attending a of state of the art rehabilitation in the USA, Drew returned to the UK to find access and opportunities to use similar equipment severely lacking, with those that were available being extremely expensive.

 

Thus, the idea for Pop-Up Gym was born and, after two years of fundraising and establishing Pop-Up Gym as a charity, it was finally opened on the 15th January 2018 and later changed its name to Gym Possible at the beginning of 2020.
