Welcome to Abington Park

Abington Park is split in two halves and is over 2 miles in circumference. It has a mixture of open flat fields, hills, lakes, a wooded area, toilets, cafe and a bandstand. The BMF group averages around 40-70 members and sessions vary between moving around the entire park stopping to use the local features for exercises and static sessions using boxing equipment, kettlebells, slam balls, power bags and much more.  It's also not unusual to pass a group of BMFers marching around the park in a squad with weighted bags on their backs practising their TABBING skills!

Luca Grillo

Luca moved from Italy to the UK at the age of 6 and as soon as he was old enough to leave school he immediately joined the British Forces. 

During his time with the Queens Royal Hussars Luca realised his dream of becoming an astronaut was looking increasingly unlikely to pan out, but discovered a new passion for influencing and inspiring people to enjoy fitness. 

Soon after serving in Afghanistan he decided to leave the forces and pursue life as a civvy, where, with his Physical Training Instructor qualifications he has been able to follow his dream with British Military Fitness

During his spare time Luca lives a very active and adventurous life and likes to cycle, swim and train to keep fit and active, he enjoys history and travelling to new places. Luca’s best friend is Ozzy, his dog!

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.

  • Feel better about yourself

    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.
