FITNESS sessions on the recreation ground in Ilminster will start this week.

Former Royal Marine Mark Hughes is running the sessions from 7.30- 8.30pm on Tuesdays until winter and they cost £4 each session.

The first session is free and they will take place at the far end of the recreation ground close to the tennis courts. Mark said: “Every session different and unique, using fitness tests, paired or team workouts, sports day style races and games, the list is endless.

“I just let my imagination run wild at planning each session and it has took off in Crewkerne so I have thought why not bring it to Ilminster.

Forget the idea of a strict military style boot camp as that is not my style. maintaining their own fitness.”
