Chelsea Football Club, who are local to the gym, are also helping the veterans get fit by providing special exercise classes.
A veterans’ housing organisation has opened a new gym after a successful campaign organised by one of its residents.
Mac McLaren secured an £8,000-grant from the Endeavour Fund to refurbish the gym, which will help veterans to experience the mental and physical benefits of exercise.
The Endeavour Fund is a body set up by the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Duke and Duchess of Sussex to fund inspiring projects aiding the recovery of veterans.
Mr McLaren was spurred on to renovate the gym after the disappointment of missing out on the last Invictus Games squad in 2018.
