I've started doing a British Military Fitness (BMF) class and not sure how to enter it in exercise diary as this type of exercise is not listed. The class is an hour long and is an intensive mixture of jogs and sprints; toning exercises such as press ups and sit ups and strength exercises such as 'the plank'. Circuit training would be the closest thing but I can't find that in the database either! I’ve be entering it as aerobics as I spend most of the class gasping for breath!

I am doing British Military Fitness (BMF) as well - great exercise! I am feeling your pain! Which class do you go to?

I go to the one in glasgow, really enjoying it and definitely easier to be motivated than at the gym. I'm even getting used to icy fingers and mucky backsides from all the pushups in the quagmire that is currently my local park!

I've been using "Universal Circuit Resistance" since April, but recently realised that it UNDER-estimates the calories I use in a typical British Military Fitness (BMF) class.

UCR at my current weight gives me around 560 calories for a British Military Fitness (BMF) class. However, I work far harder there than at indoor circuits classes, and I reckon I've been using nearer 800.

I have just joined - what a great site. I am finding dieting sooo easy with the tools on here (it is only day three though!).

I was just wondering whether anyone else does British Military Fitness (BMF) training here (it is an exercise class in parks taken by military fitness instructors) - you can imagine the rest!!! It would be nice to chat to anyone that is doing both. Do say hi if you are.

hi - and welcome to the site.
I was a member of British Military Fitness (BMF) earlier this year - but unfortunately had to stop because it was a 40 minute drive to get there so I just was finding that I wasn't going as often as I should. I loved it though - if one ever came to the area where I live I'd re-join like a shot.

Just did a session tonight where we finished up doing a "Platoon Attack" across the whole Common...half of us lying down giving "covering fire" (doing press ups or sit ups whilst yelling "rat-a-tat-a-tat" to simulate machine guns) and the other half advancing at a leopard crawl, changing over every 30 metres or so. We must have looked absolutely bonkers to the people walking by on the path!

Then the blue bibs became "casualties" and the rest of us had to carry them back up the last steep hill to the car park. There's always a sting in the tail just when you think you've finished!

The social life in our local group's great, too!
