Who is it for?

Individuals who have served in the HM Armed Forces.

Upon leaving the forces, a lot of individuals miss the opportunities to stay fit and be part of a unique group. These sessions will be based on group training, allowing the chance to resume the camaraderie that many miss whilst also keeping mentally and physically fit.
