Winnersh Triangle Athlete Takes Gold
Frasers Property UK, owner of Winnersh Triangle business park is delighted that local sprinter Adam Thomas from Finchampstead has won gold at the British Indoor Athletic Championships. Frasers Property sponsors Adam’s membership to train at MOVE HQ, the state-of-the-art gym, at Winnersh Triangle where he is currently preparing for the Commonwealth Games.
Adam switched to sprinting after quitting non-league league football and captured the British 60 metres title last weekend in 6.56 seconds, making him the new Scottish record holder. He will be representing Great Britain at the World Indoor Championships and then Scotland in Commonwealth Games being held in Birmingham this July.

The Move HQ offer includes a three-lane 35m sprint track, lifting racks, Olympic lifting stations and cardiovascular equipment, with regular sessions and workshops available for all abilities. There are also treatment rooms run by Active Health Clinics, including chiropractic treatments, sports massage, acupuncture, and reflexology.
Mark Munroe, director at MOVE HQ commented: “We are so pleased that Adam got to bring home the gold, as has been training so hard. It’s fantastic that he also achieved a personal best. We look forward to him continuing to train at MOVE HQ as he prepares for the Commonwealth Games.”
