How a UK Fitness Trainer Bounced Back After COVID Gym Closures
Sep 24, 2020

Taking on COVID-19 after it put me on the back foot

by Personal Trainer Stuart Holt, based in Reading, UK


NOTE: British "to be on the back foot" means to be put in a defensive position, to be in retreat.  An equivalent American phrase is to be knocked off balance or to be on the ropes.

Jul 31, 2020

Being a boxer is one of the toughest jobs out there. Here is a written time-lapse of an average boxer's career.

 Most boxers start the sport around 10 years of age. It often begins by being introduced to it by a family member - usually a dad, granddad or whomever. In my case, it was my uncle Billy, who was a boxer.

In the video below, I show you the difference between fighting on the outside vs fighting on the inside.

What's The Difference Between a Street Fighter & A Boxer's Power Punch?
Jun 26, 2020

"I'm not a boxer, I'm a street fighter"

by Tony Jeffries

Before I competed in the 2008 Olympics I was a nightclub doorman in Sunderland, and often used to hear “I’m not a boxer, I’m a street fighter." Normally said by drunk chavs after they had found out that I was a boxer, and it used to always make me laugh.
