Andrew ScottBusiness Owner - 50 Years Old

I started training with John when I was 42, I was overweight nearly 15 stone and hadn’t done any exercise for over 18 years! After training just 2 x 1-hour sessions a week the weight dropped off and I immediately started to feel better about myself.

Boxing isn’t like training with weights at the gym or endlessly pounding the treadmill. Because you are constantly learning new techniques it’s fun and you actually forget your exercising and the hour fly’s by. The gym is so friendly and not how I imagined a boxing gym to be. I can thoroughly recommend training with John to anyone wanting to lose weight, get fit and learn a new skill. Its hard work but instant I now weigh 11.5 stone and have a six pack.

Leigh JacksonBusiness Owner - 40 Years Old

I started training with John at the weight of 88KG to improve my fitness levels and hopefully lose 8 to 10KG. I was initially very nervous as I had zero knowledge of fitness and lacked confidence also. John Sets goals and I achieved them even quicker than I imagined and quickly noticed results in my health, mental health and appearance. After a year of training I registered as an amateur boxer under Johns supervision, at the age of 34 had my first competitive bout at the weight of 68KG in front of 400 plus spectators.

I could never see myself standing in front of an audience of that seize in a million years especially with my top off! I feel I have received the best training, nutritional advice and made such a good friend that it will always be a part of my life.

In just 12 months I have lost two stone, started to learn the art of boxing and have had a great time.  I cannot rate highly enough the training methods and atmosphere of John and his boxing club I just wish I had found him years ago! John develops my sessions each week and always adds new techniques to keep things fresh and interesting, giving me the chance to use all of the equipment he has available.
