Rudy instantly dispelled our apprehension of boxing-based workouts

We wanted to exercise together in a fashion that was straightforward whilst challenging and Rudy’s routines have perfectly fit the bill.

Rudy instantly dispelled our apprehension of boxing-based workouts with his easy-going personality and clear tuition, making the exercises both fun and engaging.

Even though we’ve only just started working with Rudy we can already tell under his guidance we will soon feel fitter, stronger and more confident about our physical well-being, especially as he’s shown to be very supportive.

Just be ready to sweat! Rudy’s going to make you work to achieve your fitness goals!

This training has been more than worth the time, money and energy I’ve put into it.

Training with Rudy over the last few months has enhanced my life for the better!

Originally, I signed my 13 year old son up to box with him. After a while of just watching, I decided to try it out myself. I’m so glad I made that decision.

My new personal fitness routine has helped strengthen me both physically and mentally. It’s nice to have an extremely well-versed coach to lead me in the right direction regarding health and fitness, but also one that has been somewhat of a life coach too.

As a beginner, I like that our workout routines have gradually built up overtime. I was under the impression that I was just going to learn how to box. Instead, I’ve learned multiple self defense styles, have gained more confidence and now have a new sense of self.

This training has been more than worth the time, money and energy I’ve put into it. Thank you!!
