Inspired by agriculture's relationship to fitness, Farm Fitness uses the 'back to basics' approach to exercise, focusing on the connection of mental health with physical wellbeing.

The unique outdoor workout concept comes with a custom training facility located against the idyllic farm backdrop.

“Mental health affects everyone, farmers included,” says Kemp, “I’ve witnessed first-hand how exercising, getting outdoors and training with like-minded people can improve your overall wellbeing.

“You won’t find this set-up in the city, which is why people travel down from the big smoke and away from basement gyms each week to enjoy the hard work and the fresh air.”

Farm Fitness has quickly become a unique addition on the UK fitness scene, attracting spectators and participants from across the UK.
