Welcome to all members, old and new, here's to a fab and fit 2017!
This means that no matter what your fitness level you will always get the most out of every session, you’ll always part of the action and always part of the team.
Types of Training
MFA takes from all disciplines of fitness, after all, all the instructors are former British Armed Forces and have themselves experienced all manner of ways to get fit. In any session, you could experience circuit training, sprint training, tabata (super high-intensity interval training), HIIT, Kettlebell, battling ropes, sandbag carries or even pilates all under close supervision from our team of highly qualified instructors.
With the beautiful Government Acre area of Ramsgate being our playground we never run out of space and the beach below is floodlit all year round so are always good to go no matter the conditions; there have been some very windy sessions but the beach is always good to train on.
Hints and tips
What to wear – As we are training in the outdoors you need to be ready for different weather conditions. If we’re training in summer then t-shirt and shorts is fine but winter can be a challenge so I recommend either leggings or long shorts and a long-sleeved base layer with a thin windproof to keep the wind off. Nick always says to start cold and then it’s up to him to keep you warm; he never fails.
You will be running on very mixed terrain so it’s best to go for some kind of trail running shoe, we tend to do short runs and little sprints so you don’t need lots of cushioning normally found on running shoes.
Arrive hydrated it’s generally best to drink a good sized glass of water an hour before the class so your body can function at it’s best. 5% dehydration can lead to a drop in both mental and physical performance of 25% so hydration is key.
