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!
