TWO former Royal Marine commandos have started fitness training sessions for the public on Colwyn Bay beach.

Dan Harrison and his business partner Adam White decided to shift their Commando X business onto the beach to give people social distance space to exercise.

Dan said: “Due to the current situation we have opted to change the way we do business and run an open gym on Colwyn Beach. We plan to set up Mondays to Saturdays fro 9am until 12 noon for people to simply turn up, grab whatever kit they need to workout with and move to a safe distance from others and train.

“So far we have had a terrific response, on day one we had 20 people turn up.

“It is simply turn up when you like between and pay as you go.

“The reason we are doing this is to give everyone the opportunity to train in a hygienic atmosphere that allows them to socially distance yourself from others as much as you feel safe. We clean the equipment daily and also recommend attendees to wear gloves.

All the kit is available: dumbbells 3kg to 20kg, kettlebells 6kg to 40kg, barbells up to 30kg and Olympic bars with over 200kg of plates, battle ropes, slam balls and dip bars.”

“We also have timed challenges such as a 60 foot cannonball pull that weighs 28kg.

Dan added: “We will write daily workouts on whiteboards for people to complete or they can do their own thing.

“We are former Royal Marines Commandos who started Commando X Fit more than six years ago. We specialise in outdoor group train sessions and focus on health, fitness, active lifestyles and positive mindset coaching.

“We regularly train more than 120 people per week and feel this adapted version of our business will keep our regular clients exercising as well as personal whose regular gym sessions may have been affected by the current situation.”
