Clive Gibson is a Physical Training Instructor and ex-British Army Commando. He is also an ex-boxer of 62 bouts, winning 3 championships in bantamweight, featherweight and lightweight. Using his boxing and military experience, Clive developed the concept of Commado Box, combining the endurance and stamina of an elite commando soldier with the physical fitness of a boxer. The concept all started back in 1984 when Clive left the Army and set up a small, personal gym on the Newcastle upon Tyne Quayside so he and his military buddies could keep fit and stay active. As word spread about the uniqueness and effectiveness of Clive's fitness programmes, people from all walks of life became interested, which led him to start his first gym business on Newcastle's High Bridge Street in 1999.
