The biggest challenge yet...

John Grimshaw is a fitness enthusiast who started out as a Tai Kwan Do instructor with his own club in Durham many years ago. After some years of a less active lifestyle(!) he found Spartan Performance gym in Consett and now trains regularly and is currently looking for his next challenge. A keen music fan, John is also often found at music festivals around the UK and Europe during his summer break from training. John works in IT.

By the end of 2013 John was listed on (the page he used for fundraising donations) as one of the three leading fundraisers on the site for Alzheimer's Research UK (see screenshot here)
