But when you’ve got a goal bigger that yourself it’s amazing what can happen
Stepping into the ring and showcasing your skills in front of hundreds of people is amazing motivation to get into your best shape ever as Neil McCann discovered
Neil had been training with us for about 9 months when the coaches noticed his skill and determination and suggested he go for a fight
Never being one to shy away from a challenge Neil jumped at the chance and fully committed himself to the 10 week programme
He trained hard,4 x a week, only missing 2 sessions over the 10 week period
And he stopped drinking and gave the programme his full attention
Over the 10 weeks Neil progressed massively in terms of fitness and skill and showed true courage and determination in fighting a tough and more experienced opponent
And he lost an amazing 15kg in the process
So how did he do it?
Simple he gave it his all and committed himself fully to the programme
He didn’t make excuses or shy away from tough sessions
Something I’ve learned from boxing is that you can teach anyone the skill but to be a real fighter requires heart and determination
There are day that are going to be tough. There are day where you want to quit but it’s about that willingness to still show up on those days and get through the rounds that really make a true fighter
I asked Neil at the end of the programme what he’d learned about himself during the process
‘the biggest thing I learned about myself is I can achieve anything I put my mind to and focus on’
Now that’s got to give you a massive confidence boost!
