Welcome to Finsbury Park

Finsbury Park is a fantastic area of green space set on the borders of Islington, Hackney and Haringey. It boasts an outdoor theatre which has steps, tiers and railings which are regularly used in classes, as well as a few rolling hills north of the athletics track. With such variation, it is hard to get bored when training at this park.

Jeremy Bearder

Jeremy joined BMF in March 2008 after serving in the Junior Leaders Regiment Royal Artillery and the 3rd Regiment Royal Horse Artillery. In that time he served in the army in Germany, Cyprus, Canada and the UK. He also represented his Regiment in Football, Rugby and Athletics becoming Junior Army Discus champion. He also enjoys skiing, tennis, and was a world record holder for almost 2 weeks. Apparently there is an interesting story behind that, but you have to turn up to his parks to find it out. Jeremy loves working outside in the parks and watching peoples attitude to life change when they join BMF.
