RUGBY legend Austin Healey and the British Military Fitness have teamed up to launch events in Portsmouth that will see the nation burn off two million calories outdoors this summer.

The campaign is designed to inspire the nation to get outside and to burn calories.

BMF Start events will take place across the UK from May to July and the free one-hour classes are designed for those who want to give outdoor fitness a go.

Austin Healey said: ‘There are more ways than ever before to keep fit and active yet as a nation we are becoming more obese and less active.

‘Working with British Military Fitness I want us to inspire people to swap their slippers for a pair of trainers.

‘For me, there’s no better way to keep fit and enjoy working out than in the great outdoors.’

BMF Start sessions are free but places are limited.
