A NEW gym specialising in a type of exercise training called CrossFit has opened in Worle.

Adam Stanton has created his business called CrossFit OxHouse, based in Ebdon Road.

The new discipline is a strength and conditioning programme used by the armed forces and sports people.

Mr Stanton said: “It is functional fitness training with a combination of weightlifting, gymnastics and cardiovascular movement at high-intensity.

“I have trained most of my life in martial arts and what I liked about CrossFit is the community aspect of training in a group and helping each other out.”
