MYSTIC, Conn. (WTNH) — Storm Team 8’s Gil Simmons has been known to do some fun/crazy things during his ‘On the Green’ visits across Connecticut. Today he added breakfast and exercise at the same time to the list.

Gil’s a big CrossFit fan, so when a man with a mobile CrossFit setup came to the green you just knew Gil would get in a few reps. And with the folks from Dunkin Donuts also on hand, well, there you go.

There are three more visits for Gil and the Good Morning Connecticut On the Green crew before we call it a summer:

  • August 7th – Middletown Town Green – south end of Main Street
  • August 14th – Milford Town Green – located at the split between Route 162 & Broad Street
  • August 21st – Central Row by State House in Hartford
