We are proud to be working in partnership with Mickey Bushell MBE – 2012 Paralympic gold medalist and personal trainer – to launch his brand new ‘Gold Standard Academy’ starting 13th Feb 2022 in Telford, Shropshire, UK.
Are you a wheelchair user looking to be more physically active? If the answer is yes then Mickey’s new sessions are just for you. The program is run by Mickey himself and over the initial 8 weeks you’ll work closely with him to improve your fitness and wellbeing, to help you achieve your ‘golds’ in life.
He knows exactly what life is like being a wheelchair user and is determined to use his experience, personal training qualifications and ability to win gold medals to help others. If you want to increase your general mobility, wheelchair skills or are struggling with your mental health then Mickey can help you – get involved and join his life changing 8 week program.
Scott, co-founder of Invictus Active, chats with Mickey to discuss his new program – watch below:
>> START DATE: Sunday 13th Feb 2022
>> VENUE: Mercure Hotel, Forge Gate, Overdale, Telford TF3 4NA

Mickey suffers from lumbar sacral spinal agenesis congenital paraplegia and competes in T53 category wheelchair racing sprint events. He is the British record holder at 100m and 200m and a European record holder at 100m – he also won a gold medal in the 100m at the London 2012 Paralympic games.
The training program will cover a range of areas targeting fitness and wellbeing and will also include the use of our Invictus Active Trainer – the ultimate fitness machine to improve your cardio, wheelchair pushing technique and calorie burn.
The initial 8 week program is fully funded by Sport England and Energize Shropshire and is free of charge – but as you can imagine there is high demand and limited spaces!
