“I joined Champions Gym in December 2014 through a friend that use to train under the same trainer as me, I was on-and-off sport changing gyms all the time until i joined Champions Gym… I haven’t stopped training since!

I started training to get more fit and to be in shape i use to be 84kg and after 4 months i became 74kg. Being surrounded by great coaches that also compete in different competitions encouraged me to train harder and get better every day to try to compete myself. I quit smoking which was a huge achievement for me and my family and then i started to train to prepare for my first boxing fight being with great coaches and experience fighters in the gym helped a lot to improve my skills and built my confidence.

I won my first amateur boxing fight which was an incredible experience; something I never thought i would do when I first started.

Champions Gym is a great place to get fit and make new friends and to live a healthy lifestyle. It has something to suit everyone’s schedule by having early morning classes and evening classes as well as a variety of sports boxing, Muay Thai, BJJ and Boot Camp. Each class is run by a professional coach specialised in his sport so it gives you the option to try new sports and you don’t have to be a professional athlete to train there.”
