About Us


Dave first established the club in 2003, Spit n Sawdust as a one room fitness club to run his established boxercise classes that he previously ran from various venues in and around the Banbury area.  The club has been providing friendly, personal attention to its members, helping them stay fit, active and healthy ever since.  from it’s humble beginning the club has grown into a fully equipped gymnasium and now has five rooms including the main hall where all fitness classes are held, a room for the punch bags, a weights room, a CV room and a coffee bar.

Torch Bearer

Spit’n’Sawdust’s USP (Unique Selling Point) is Dave Earle. A recent article summed up what the general public, or at least, the Banbury Guardian think of Dave’s contribution to Banbury. This short article was written by the newspaper shortly after he was was selected to carry the Olympic torch.
