Is Military Fitness 4U for me?
What is a typical class like?
There is no ‘typical’ class. Each instructor is different and each session will be varied to stop both your mind and body getting bored. This is one of the benefits of our classes – it’s a whole body workout designed to improve your stamina, speed, agility and strength in a fun and interesting ways. We guarantee that some of the exercises we do will be completely new to you. Classes start with a warm up followed by at least 50 minutes of individual, pairs and team exercises and end with a cool down and stretch.
Instructors and members are a friendly bunch and are always keen to welcome a new face. Instructors make sure that each individual works to their own level of fitness within the group. It’s a real skill, but our instructors have year’s worth of experience.
Do I need to attend a fitness assessment before I start?
No, just turn up to any class for your free class, there will be a Military Fitness 4U instructor there to greet you when you arrive
I’ve registered on the website; do I need to book my free trial class?
No, once you’ve registered online an email will be sent to your inbox. Here’s what you have to do to activate your free class trial.
What should I wear? Do I need any specialist equipment?
A decent pair of outdoor running shoes is all you really need. Fashion trainers are not advisable as they offer little support or grip and you may run the risk of injury if you wear them to a class. Other than that, an old t-shirt on top and shorts, tracksuit bottoms or running leggings are ideal. Some exercises involve getting down on the ground so be prepared to get a little bit dirty – it’s part of the fun! Unfortunately we can’t guarantee the weather but we can guarantee that you’ll be sweating by the end of each session so make sure you have something warm to put on after the session has finished. Some people also like to wear a lightweight base layer, gloves and a hat during winter months.
If possible, please arrive in your kit as changing facilities in parks are limited – though we do try to position our meeting points close to public conveniences.
Specialist equipment – Apart from a good pair of running shoes any equipment required for the exercises will be supplied by the instructor.
Where do I put my valuables?
Please try to avoid bringing valuables to the classes but if you have to do so, you may use the instructors’ or the Military Fitness 4U vehicle to store your valuables/change of clothing etc
Do I need to book specific classes?
No just turn up with a smile and don’t worry about anything this is not a “smashing” as we call it in the Army its a fitness class designed to your goals “with Army Instructors”
