Has anyone attended a British Military Fitness class? They sound like a brilliant way of getting fit (and muddy!) outdoors and I'd love it if a class started up in Crystal Palace Park! Take a look at the website and if you would too, perhaps you'd click on the Suggest a Location to persuade them to knock us Norwooders into shape...

I was going to attend one on saturday mornings with a mate who had been before - they do break you up into fitness levels so thats good but that doesnt seem to stop them from screaming at you a lot ha ha...aslong as you can cope with them screaming in your ear for 10 more situps whilst you are crying on the cold wet ground then its for you!!! :)

Brilliant! Looks like there may be enough of us to have some success if we all lobby them via the website. I will have to opt for a novice's blue tabard (and hope that they don't shout too much...)

I'd be up for it, too! I need a lot of shouting to get me to do exercise.

I saw a small van in Mowbray Road the other week with a British Military Fitness logo so maybe they're already scouting out the area.......

I'd also be up for that - desperately need to get fit but the idea of joining a gym again really doesn't excite me. I've filled in the form on the website.

I used to go to the classes on Clapham Common, they were very good, and very authentic ;)

They do however work best with larger groups, which they already get in CC and Hype Park. You need groups to carry the telegraph poles and compete against each other! :lol:

So prospects of coming to Crystal Palace....?
Either they don't know, don't show...or just don't care what's going on in Norwood.

I wouldn't bother if it wasn't in Crystal Palace Park though to be honest. If I have to get in the car to go then I know I won't make the effort.

:D

That's made me smile! Buy a bicycle and cycle to CC, it will warm you up for the exercises! However, if you're not prepared to do that, then being shouted at (albeit not very much, or that loudly!); running for 5 miles; performing ******** (not a swear word but a particularly gruelling exercise, self censored) or a devils circuit (one of the nastiest circuit training I've ever encountered); log runs; sit ups/press ups/squat thrusts in all weather; carrying people...is hardly for you! Then again, how do you know until you've tried it.

Ditch the car, give it a go, but commit yourself to at least 6 weeks. Any less and there's no point. Any exercise is tough, especially the first 6 months all in, after which you'll see the improvements and feel the benefits.

I commute for 3 hours every day; that's quite enough travelling about for me. I'm quite prepared to exercise but I don't want to 'commute', whether by car, bus, train, bike, plane in order to do it.

Me too, it's called living in Crystal Palace! Would never have thought before I moved here, that travelling from Zone 3 to 2, from Upper Norwood to Canary Wharf, could take up almost 4 hours of my day!!

Fair enough, if it's not for you, it's not for everyone. Good luck whatever you choose, but unless you're rich enough to have a home gym, you'll be commuting somewhere! ;)
