Farm Fitness has rapidly become a burning beacon on the UK fitness scene, attracting spectators and participants from all over the country to come and take a swing at its almost alchemic blend of modified strongman, functional bodybuilding, calisthenics and blistering cardio efforts.
The gym, founded by farmer’s son Tom Kemp, was voted one of the best gyms in the world and 'coolest outdoor space' by Men's Health.
Tom has blended his farming background with his love of training to create a raw and exciting outdoor environment for people of all strengths and abilities to get fit.
He took a dilapidated corner of the yard at the family’s 240ha arable farm near Dunmow, used as a machinery dumping ground, and transformed it into a bespoke workspace.
Custom-made equipment sits alongside items commonly found lying around the farm, such as old tractor tyres.
