What They Say.

A wonderful gym and fitness academy- my son joined a few months ago. He started out a shy lad with an interest in boxing. A few one to one intro sessions with Sam at the gym initiated a passion for boxing. I have to admit that I was a bit dubious at first as he had got himself into trouble at school for fighting and I was concerned that this would make it worse. However, the discipline of boxing in the ring only has improved his attitude. I am so very grateful to Sam and his team for the positive changes they have helped bring. His coaching duo- Avi and Amun are definitely the right people for my son- they understand issues children have and use boxing and fitness to assist with behaviour problems and confidence. What I like about Sam and his team is that they realise that kids that some people may have ‘written off’ can be shown an alternative way.
