SL: Glen, tell us what inspired you to start Beach Fit Marbella. BFM: Basically I wanted to get people out the gym and training outside, everyone can visit a gym whether it’s in London, Germany or the Italy but here on the Costa del Sol we benefit from these glorious beaches a fantastic climate but we never use them, so I decided to start Beach Fit Marbella. For anyone who has trained outside they will tell you training outside in the fresh air is so invigorating and this is what I want to promote. SL: So apart from the obvious how does training outside differ to that of a gym circuit? BFM: Being outside stimulates the senses, the fresh air, the wind, the landscape and by using the sand, slopes, steps, and benches around us all adds to create a positive feel good factor. Our first workout of the day starts at 7am and lasts for one hour so by 8am your body is buzzing with endorphins and you really feel ready for the day ahead, this is what exercising is all about. SL: Glen, this sounds great we’re in… but how do you entice people to give up their current gym. BFM: This is a hard one, nobody likes change, people that don’t exercise don’t want to exercise and people that do have a routine which they are probably stuck in. So to incentivise people until the 19th July I will be giving all the sessions away for free so that people can feel what it’s like to work out in the fresh air. Also each month we aim to have a celebrity / guest trainers come down and mix –up our sessions bringing with them their fitness experience whether it be martial arts, intensive trainer, toning etc etc and this month we have Rob Edmond, TV trainer & presenter. SL: Hi Rob, it’s a pleasure to meet you we all know you from “The biggest Loser UK” what attributes do you bring to Beach Fit Marbella. RE: Working on “The biggest Loser UK” which is probably one of the biggest boot camps in the world and one of the most famous means I can bring a lot of experience to Beach Fit Marbella. This month my role is as a guest trainer to help raise the profile of Beach Fit Marbella and get them noticed plus maybe provide a few hints and tips. I am also holding a few sessions and having 70

a military background my workouts tend to be of a more intense regime however the main thing I want to help promote is that Beach Fit Marbella is available to everybody, so even if you are new to exercise you should come along and give it a try, don’t be scared! SL: Rob, you have worked with many high profile celebrities and sportmen, can you tell us about them? RE: Well as you know I have worked with Davina McCall on “The biggest Loser” and most recently Mark Felix - Professional World Strong Man Competitor who recently just set a deadlift world record in powerlifting. SL: Rob, we hear you are currently training for the world fitness record, what does that entail? RE: Yes, I have had to put on hold because of my commitments to “The biggest Loser” but basically it is the fastest person carrying a person of equal weight on your back in a fireman’s lift for a mile. SL: Good luck with that. (rather you that me!) SL: Glen, back to Beach Fit Marbella tell us about the program.
