Coastal Gym was formed four and a half years ago by Frank Harrington, a former professional boxer. It is located at Red Rose Community Centre, 74 West End Road, Morecambe. The club’s coaches are, John Bee, David Fox, John Ferris, Hugh Roberts, Tom Byrne and Carl Squirral. Jamie Wakeman and Kane Hatfield also volunteer at the gym. The gym is an affiliated ABA gym, which has a number of amateur boxers representing the gym at events all over the North West of England and we also hosts regular amateur boxing events.
We have a fitness suite, including treadmills, rowing machines, bikes and cross trainers.
We also have spinning, yoga, muay thai and ju jitsu classes.
