New fitness drive in Stornoway


The Health and Fitness industry in the Isle of Lewis is about to get an exciting injection of enthusiasm and expertise with the opening of a brand new training facility: the ‘Fitness Studio’” at the Cabarfeidh Hotel, Stornoway.

Local Lewis man Norrie Mackenzie is opening the tailor made training studio in the former Caber Public area. This new venture will cater to the Island’s vibrant fitness community.

Norrie is a well known figure locally having built up the Eilean Siar Muay Thai boxing club from scratch.

A former champion fighter himself, Norrie has continually developed the club which now enjoys a thriving membership.

Norrie, and his wife Muriel, currently offer a wide range of classes such as pad work, sparring, a women’s class and a Nicolson Institute children’s class.

2011 also saw the club significantly break out onto the Scottish Muay Thai fight scene.

If you ever drive past Traigh Mor in Tolsta on a Saturday morning, you may even see one of his infamous body conditioning beach training sessions which are not for the faint hearted!

Norrie also promotes cross training and it is not uncommon to see the club at various SRAC running events.
