BMF set to launch new training venue

Outdoor training provider British Military Fitness (BMF) has announced that it will unveil its 100th venue at Abington Park in Northampton on 14 June.

Established in 1999 by Major Robin Cope, the provider offers hour-long exercise classes at locations across the UK, allowing people of all ability levels to take part in military-style workouts. In addition to its UK sites, which include Leeds, Edinburgh, Cardiff and 24 in London, BMF has also expanded to South Africa and now plans to open new venues in Australia, the US and Europe.

Cope said: "The military background of all our instructors has ensured that they provide our members with plenty of motivation to get the best from their workout. "Our unique classes are always varied, challenging and fun which is what our members want, and that is why they keep coming back for more."
