A gym with its own workout ‘beach’ has been opened by a father and son business partnership.
Jacko’s Gym, in James Carter Road, on Mildenhall Industrial Estate, was opened on Saturday by Kenny and son Callum Jackson.
They have combined expertise to bring a new-style gym to the area, which they say is relaxed, friendly and decorated ‘beach style’.
Jacko’s Gym is a brand-new, functional training gym set in more than 4,000 square feet of open-plan gym space, boasting a huge variety of classes including box fit, primal circuits, strength and conditioning, functional training and mixed martial arts fit.
The bright, welcoming turquoise and white space is also home to the gym’s trademark and pride and joy, its ‘beach’.
When starting their journey into creating a gym, they wanted it to be an interesting and fun, sociable place for people to hang out.
“We’ve capitalized on each other’s strengths in business and fitness, which has enabled us to create a fantastic experience for those who need or want to be fit,” Callum said.
Jacko’s Gym is believed to be the first in the UK to have its own workout sandpit.
“Training in the sandpit will be fun and fast-paced, but with the added benefits of saving the knees whilst giving you an amazing workout,” said Callum.
The pit contains 20 tons of sand, offering a soft surface to exercise on and, unlike the beach, it never gets wet and hard.
He has seven years’ experience in the fitness industry in gyms, bootcamps and as a self-employed personal trainer.
