Our Story


Offshore Fitness was established by two friends who initially crossed paths at the gym in 2017. With Dan's 12 years of offshore experience and Shaun's 12 years in the fitness industry, they decided to pool their expertise to address the specific challenges faced by those working offshore.

I'm Dan Simpson

After leaving college and completing my Electrical apprenticeship, I eventually found myself working offshore as Rope Access Electrical Technician. I have done this for over 12 years. In this time I've worked on various platforms, FPSO's, Jack up's and Semi subs with minimal training equipment available to use in the gyms provided.

Seeing this problem and with a passion for training from a young age lead me to take up a coaching role at my local gym, qualifying me as a coach.

Doing this allowed me to gain experience in both group and one to one coaching, both with clients locally and whilst offshore.

Now I want to be able to take this further and help other offshore workers take back control of their health and fitness so they can enjoy a more balanced life and enjoy their downtime the way they like.
