We’ve been changing lives since 1999 and our unique breed of military fitness training combined with cutting edge sports science means we remain at the forefront of results based fitness.
The first in Military Fitness for the general public, we bring our military methodology and combine it with the latest sports science to deliver the best results based fitness programmes.
BMF are also dedicated to supporting the wider military community, offering employment to veterans and supporting them in their health and well being after serving.
Come rain or shine our classes continue. Many believe there's nothing better than breathing in the smell of freshly mown grass whilst working out on a warm spring evening.
But, perhaps surprisingly, many actually claim to prefer that sense of pride and achievement you feel once you're home and showered after a particularly muddy, wet Saturday morning session when you'd otherwise rarely venture beyond your front door.
To this extent, we have something for everyone and will never cancel a class due to a little bit of rain.
The weather and temperature adds variety to the class, and our instructors will ensure that if it's a particularly hot day you spend plenty of time in the shade and have extra water breaks. Conversely if it's cold or wet you will spend more time on your feet and be kept moving to keep your body temperature up.
We often get asked - am I fit enough to do a BMF class? The answer is YES.
We understand that our classes are only effective and fun if you’re exercising at the right ability level for you. This is why we divide all class participants into three main ability groups:
Whichever group you join at a British Military Fitness class – you’ll be guaranteed an effective workout with people of a similar level of fitness. Every week, you’ll work hard, have fun and make tangible progress that you’ll be able to see and feel.
Just like the military, we do workouts using what’s available – benches, tyres, ropes, own body weight and partner body weight - nothing over-technical or complex. We’re here to get fit, not to sit our GCSE’s after all.
Yes, it’s important to maintain great technique, which your instructor will always keep an eye on, but don’t expect to find scary Olympic barbells or weight plates.
You’ll be doing things like squats, push-ups, sit ups, and high-knee sprints. They’re mostly body weight exercises and if done correctly, they really pack a punch.
Variety might be the spice of life but it’s also the key to great fitness results.
The only way to create change is to force your body to adapt by throwing new challenges at it.
That’s why our instructors are continually changing things up in the BMF classes.
Every session is different to the last because:
