New fitness concept from Bristol Bears rugby player to open at Bristol’s The General

Bristol Bears rugby player Nick Fenton-Wells and his brother Anthony Fenton-Wells are launching a new fitness concept, Torque Training, at The General in Bristol.

The General is the result of the restoration and conversion of the former, Grade II listed, Bristol General Hospital, built by the UK’s leading heritage developer, City & Country. The General offers characterful, stylish homes alongside a mix of waterside restaurants and health services within Commercial Arcade.

The deal with Torque Fitness was brokered by property consultancy JLL in Bristol, which markets the commercial element of the scheme.

Torque Training is the latest addition to the development which already boasts award-winning, Michelin-starred restaurant Casamia and The Practice, a bespoke dental facility, among its tenants.

Torque Training is a new class-based training concept by Nick Fenton-Wells and his brother Anthony, who is a strength and conditioning coach.

Nick said: “Torque is as much about training as it is about mindset, and more importantly, community. At Torque Training we want you to feel part of a team and part of a family. Relationships are what build us, being open, honest, and loyal to those around you. At Torque we ask you to trust in our process, disregard mediocrity and strive for superiority.”

Dan Milford at JLL in Bristol brokered the deal on behalf of City & Country. He said: “When I first met Nick and Anthony, you could really get a sense of the passion they have for their venture. Torque Training is a fantastic addition to The General and, with an already impressive line-up of tenants, the development is establishing itself as one of Bristol’s most stylish locations.”

The final commercial units are under construction and nearing completion. Anyone interested in taking occupation at The General can contact Dan Milford at JLL to discuss the opportunity.
