I am delighted to announce that as of Monday 2nd November 2015 I will be opening my own boxing and fitness gym on the Fylde Coast.
I have decided to go into business with my Dad, creating our own Boxing Gym at the former Arnfield Gymnasium site at Clifton Trade Park, Brinwell Road, Blackpool.
Despite the excitement of entering this new chapter, it is with a heavy heart that I am leaving Sharpstyle ABC and both my Dad an I would like to thank Andy Abrol and all at Sharpstyle for allowing us to train and work out of his facility as well as his support, guidance and friendship over the past 8 years. In fact, I owe it to Andy that I can even call myself a professional boxer as it was him that encouraged me to get into a ring all those years ago. Sharpstyle was a place I called home and has helped shaped me into the fighter and the man I am today, but at this point in my career I feel it is the right thing to do. Hopefully this will allow us both to go from strength to strength and work together, helping each other, with Andy continuing to develop the town’s young, amateur boxing talent without me messing up his gym and getting in the way!
However, in all seriousness, I feel it is essential to both my current professional boxing career and life after boxing that I have my own facility in which I can continue to develop and be the best I can be.
Our doors will be open on from Monday but it will take us several weeks to put our own stamp on the facility and get everything fully operational. We will be offering personal 1-to-1 training, private group sessions and various open classes and sessions, with more information to follow soon. Thanks to everyone who has helped and supported me and has made my dream of owning my own gym a reality.
Thanks for your support.
