have any of our runners ever XT'd with BMF?
Some excellent classes to strengthen full body especially core, and train mental toughness. I know that I personally have taken minutes off my 5&10 k times and also recovery is much faster as I have been taught how to foam roll properly!
There has been a BMF at 9am every Saturday in Bushy Park. I think they might be up to 40 people now.
Never been tempted to train with bmf. Had experience of one of the instructors at warm up for wolf run and wasn't impressed. I do participate in a weekly bootcamp with a very experience PT who is also an ultra runner. He doesn't feel the need to get all pseudo military and delivers challenging sessions that do also support my running goals.
I LOVE British Military Fitness. By the way, they carry bottles of water in their backpack for a water break half way through the session and sometimes props - I always used to wonder that too.
Although I know some excellent runners who use BMF for cross training I wouldn't do it myself, I see far too many of the instructors fail to correct bad form and put people at risk of back injury.
I did some training with an ex-military PT and he always ran with a back pack. He said that he'd got used to it in the army and now it felt unnatural to run without. I guess it changes your centre of gravity slightly and adds some weight to make the session more challenging if you want.
