Murray Sutherland, New Owner of
New Body Health & Fitness
Sutherland is a Former I.B.F. World Boxing Champion

On March 1, 2008, Former I.B.F. World Boxing Champion, Murray Sutherland became the proud owner of New Body Health and Fitness, located at the Corner of Henry & Vermont Streets, on the West side of Bay City.

Sutherland had managed New Body since October 2003 and recently decided to buy the business from former owner, Bay City businessman Art Dore.

Sutherland was born in Edinburgh and was a Scottish boxer in the super middleweight division. Sutherland turned professional in 1977. In 1984 he captured the IBF Super Middleweight Title with a decision win over Ernie Singletary. Sutherland retired in 1986. Career Record: 49-13-1 (39 KO) Since then he has coached and trained fighters and promoted Toughman.

Because of that history, Sutherland has been involved with weight loss and weight gain for over 30 years and knows what it takes to shed those unwanted pounds, having to either lose weight or gain weight quick to meet his weight requirements in the world of boxing.

One of the things Sutherland would like to focus on is catering more to women's trimming and toning. "Many women come in looking to shed a few pounds, and I can guide them through personal training and diet and get effective results," Sutherland said.

Sutherland has a total of approximately 9,000 square feet at New Body -- 4,000 sq. ft. of weights and cardio, and 5,000 sq. ft. of exclusive Aerobic, Martial Arts and Boxing work-out rooms.

According to Sutherland, he can offer clients a great deal on membership that can be custom-designed to meet both schedule and budget requirements.

Memberships start as low as $20.00 per month with no up-front costs. They include:

  • Orientation on The New Equipment

  • Advice On Reaching Your Health/Weight Goals.

  • One-On-One Personal Training.

(Above Right) Jane Thomas, lives in San Francisco but visits her mother frequently (who lives in Bay City.) Thomas, said, "I really like this gym. Whenever I am in town, I come here because they have lots of cardio machines to choose from and I never have to wait to get on one of them. And I can stay on it as long as I want."

    TOTAL DEDICATION - (Above Left) David Hartley, 21 and Kevin McCartney, 21 (Above Right) both of Bay City, put in double sessions and come to New Body twice a day!

    New Body Health & Fitness also offers the following list of services:

  • Work-out gear and apparel, Protein/Nutritional bars and drinks.

    Hi Mr Sutherland.
    I ve just been reading up on your career and some of the great fighters you fought. I myself am a huge fan of Tommy Hearns, who you went 10 rounds with. It must have been amazing winning the WBC world title, I'm i right in saying you was the first fighter to win a world title in the super middleweight division, an amazing achievement, something you must be very proud of. As a huge boxing fan - would be possible for you to send me a signed photo of yourself during your fighting days. It would be an honour to add you to my collection of boxing memrobilla. My address is 42 Withers Avenue, Warrington, England Wa2 8ex.
    Kind regards
    Steve Davis
