Dave joined the The Royal Irish Regiment in 1998 and went on to have a very successful career serving all over the world on operations and exercises. As a BMF instructor he loves nothing more than having the ability to transform people’s lives and showing them that fitness can be fun and rewarding. He encourages his members to not only achieve their goals but smash them! He enjoys nothing more than competing in endurance events, from marathons all the way up to Ultra-Marathons. Boxing, football and rugby also feature heavily in his spare time.

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.
