I am a member of British Military Fitness (BMF) on Hampstead Heath and was horrified when I read the article titled "shaping up" (see attached).

I'd like to point out that as a member of BMF you are not shouted at by a bellowing drill sergeant and nor does anyone shout down to you.

The classes are tough and a hard workout but after all isn't that what you pay for?

The instructors are all well qualified and always very helpful and enthusiastic and are encouraging to everyone.

In addition the other BMF members are all happy and friendly people. We organise many social events as a group and I have met some great friends from chatting to people during and after class.

After attending BMF for two and a half yrs I am the fittest that I have ever been and I have made some great friends and I think it's very unfair that your article makes the whole experience sound very off putting and like a boot camp .
