Problems with fitness standards? Read this!!!

Tonight I attended a British Military Fitness class at a park in South Manchester. I can only find positive things to say about BritMilFit: the staff are great, experienced, the people are committed and encouraging. It is suitable for most fitness levels from sub par to super advanced and the best thing of all:

It will get you through the fitness parts of a military application.

Seriously good work out, the best I have had perhaps ever. Since attending this class I have absolutely no doubt that when I attend the AOSB I will not be getting binned for not being fit enough, I have absolute confidence in BritMilFit to take my determination and turn it into results.

All the staff are ex military (the two guys tonight were ex Marines and Army and the class was good fun and really tough... but still enjoyable. It costs 30 pounds a month for as many classes as you want at any venue around the UK (this is coorporate rate, which you will get if you tell them you want to join the military).

So if you are having problems getting your fitness sorted, visit:

I add backing to this. Ive been with BritMilFit for 6 months now and love it. Good staff give advice on doing exercises right etc.. Best part about it is that your in a large group so theres the factor of not wanting to let them down so you push more. I was running 1.5 in 12mins piss poor 2 months of BMF and had it down to 10mins.

Well worth the £30-£38 a month i do 3 classes a week, i would do 4 but cant make one due to work commitments :(

But as Jay said give it ago you get the first class free to see what its all about and your not held down to a contract.

P.s Nothing better then getting cold, wet and muddy lol!

This sounds like a really good system. In the future when I get out its good to know this sort of facility is available to maintain fitness levels.
And it will put you such a good start to your army career if you're thinking of joining.

I back this. My legs still hurt but this is seriously good training. JC, do you train at Platts Fields?

Yeah I do man, do you attend? Thinking about also going along to the one at Heaton Park as I work a rota at a bar in the city center so sometimes don't get Tue and Thur evenings off.

But yeah talk about aching legs.

Hey there the ok ones. It the super-burpee which are a b itch!

1. Start standing, in a light jog in place
2. touch the ground in a squat position
3. Jump clear of the ground, bringing your knees up to your chest.
4. land in a squat position, jump feet out to push up position.
5. do a push up
6. Jump feet forward to a squatting position just like in a squat thrust.
7. (optional: stand, light jog in place)
8. repeat many times

Well Ive emailed so they can see theres some interest in the Derby / Nottm area. At the moment it looks like the midlands are avoided like the plague.

Yeah Platt Feilds, 15 mins on the bus.

Get the 192 from outside Piccadilly and when you get to Longsight, ask the driver to let you off near Dickenson Road. Walk/Run (5-10 min jog) or get another bus (better walking/running, buses are not very frequent) down Dickenson road till you get to Wilmslow road, and Platt Feilds will be in front of you and on your left. Walk down the road almost inline with Dickenson road and BMF meet at the big gates about 300m down.

God I am so darn helpful it amazes me sometimes.
