Team GB Wrestling Star to Share his Expertise with Burnley College Students

Team GB Wrestling star Charlie Bowling will be coaching Students at Fitness Evolution, Burnley College’s onsite training provider, elite gym and spa.

The 24-year-old Commonwealth bronze-winning star from Wigan will been passing on his passion to learners who themselves want to become coaches.

Charlie, from Wigan, started wrestling at just six years old and has won multiple British Championships throughout his competitive career.

Throughout lockdown Charlie used the outdoor spaces on his farm to turn the ban on indoor training into a vibrant community of people who wanted to remain at peak fitness level.

This innovation led to the development of the hugely successful “Farmer Strong” – his personal training business.

His vast experience in coaching will allow him to demonstrate to Students multiple different levels of sports coaching for a wide variety of different sports. They will also discover how he used his passion and determination to build his personal training business.

At Burnley College and Fitness Evolution we pride ourselves on our connections with both professional sports people and within the fitness industry as a whole and Charlie is the perfect example of both.

As a former University colleague of our very own Matt Dunn, Sport and Fitness Lecturer at Fitness Evolution, Matt knew Charlie would inspire our Students:


“Charlie’s passion, dedication and innovative approach in every aspect of his sporting career and his Farmer Strong business are exactly the type of skills we want to instil in our Students.
“I’m really looking forward to meeting up with him and watching him interact with our learners. I’m positive they will leave these from these session with so much.”
