Staff spotlight: Mike Burrell receives Kent Union award

Many of those who frequent Kent Sport are aware of the burly Mike Burrell who roams the fitness suite and shouts obscenities across the Main Hall during a gruelling Circuits class. Although he has a rough exterior, his aim is push everyone he encounters to be a better version of themselves.

Mike’s knowledge of the human body and his skill for optimum physical performance is a winning combination in many people’s eyes. And luckily for him, it hasn’t gone unnoticed.

Kent Union recently presented Mike with an award for going ‘Above and Beyond’ which he was nominated by more than 12 people who have experienced Mike’s winning attitude and upbeat personality throughout Kent Sport.

“Well, this came as a great surprise! Absolutely honoured to receive this and I am so glad to have such positive feedback…for just doing my job,” said Mike when receiving his award.

“Mike is an asset to Kent Sport and we’re really pleased to see him recognised for the hard work he continues to put in day and day out. Mike has a great gym floor presence and engages with several members assisting them with a variety of queries, helping them achieve their goals,” said Oli Prior, Health, Fitness and Performance Manager.
