Welcome to Meadows

As our most popular park in Scotland, The Meadows is fairly flat but has lot of individual paths dissecting the area. There are many park benches that are utilised for a range of exercise, as well as one hill that frequently gets a visit. Come and join us for a BMF session that will leave you wanting more!

Why BMF?

  • It's Fun

    British Military Fitness (BMF) outdoor fitness classes are a proven and trusted way of getting fit, losing weight and feeling great. The average total calories burned during a session across all three groups (blue, red, and green) is 640

  • It's Effective

    A lot of people give up on fitness programmes because they become bored. That doesn’t happen at BMF. Variety and making every session different is the key to our success. Each week you’ll be put through a challenging, effective workout with team games, paired exercises, circuits, strength work and running.

  • You're Part of The Team

    You are not alone. Every week, you’ll be with your fellow BMFers. With the encouragement of your instructor you’ll be helping each other out, keeping everyone going and keeping them moving. They’ll be doing the same for you – BMF is all about getting fit together.
