From Dave Marshall
ex-British Army Physical Training Instructor
My name is Dave Marshall. I had the honour of serving in the British Army for twelve years, much of it as a Physical Training Instructor. Additional details about my army career can be read here but let me say that when it comes to ensuring physical standards are achieved I know my stuff. That is why LMF is Cheshire’s premier military fitness outfit.
The techniques I use at LMF are taken directly from my time as a PTI so you can be assured that the boot camp training you experience is authentic and effective. While I make no apology for how challenging the workouts are, I take care to tailor activities for each person’s level of fitness and ability. For that reason, all LMF participants are required to complete a health questionnaire before taking part.
I understand that committing yourself to regular physical exercise is a challenging prospect. If boot camps were easy, everyone would be fit. But they’re not. And only you can make it happen.
My commitments to you are that:
- I will be there, four times a week, come rain or shine
- I will motivate you the same successful way I have motivated thousands of soldiers in the British Army
- I will vary the programme appropriately to ensure it is always challenging and fun
- You will notice the difference
The rest is going to be up to you. And it begins with getting in touch. Your first session is free so there’s literally nothing to lose but everything to gain.
Take that step. Make it happen.
Time-served PTI professional
A good number of so-called ‘military fitness’ programs are run by ex-forces personnel who were not Physical Training Instructors. LMF is.
LMF prides itself on motivating its participants. We celebrate your milestones and track your progress.
All LMF participants say how much they get out of the camaraderie at LMF sessions. This team ethos is celebrated at regular social events.
All weathers, three times a week
Numerous studies prove the benefits of outdoor exercise over indoors. Whatever the Cheshire weather is doing, LMF is always active.
…can’t recommend this bootcamp enough, especially if you are someone who feels nervous or unsure of how to approach exercise. I have been made to feel so welcomed and supported from the minute I first introduced myself; I go back every week because of it. Working out in a team is so much better!…
…been going to LMF for 8 months and I have never felt better or fitter. Classes are great, always varied, a great team spirit in the group and also we have a laugh. There are a mix of abilities who go to each class so anyone can go and sessions are tailored to your own fitness level….
I’ve always struggled to enjoy working out and now I’ve found this group I can honestly say that my view on fitness has changed! I’m relatively new to the area and it allowed me to meet new friends,…exercises are tailored to my level of fitness to push me to the limit….
…been going to LMF classes for 18-months now and it’s the only fitness regime I’ve stuck to for that long. The classes are hard work but effective. My fitness has improved markedly as a result. Everyone is really friendly and encouraging, with the motivation being the best I’ve experienced….
I joined LMF about 4 months ago as an unfit, nearly 16 stone truck driver. I am now regularly running 5k, lost nearly 1 and a half stone in weight and feeling a hell of a lot better…I’d be bored of the gym by now but look forward to Tuesday night at 7.00pm….
After joining last night what can I say other than wow! A really good workout even for the not so fittest of people like myself… The whole team are so friendly and welcoming but what impressed me the most was how the banter flowed and each and every one who attended cheered each other on!…
