I am an ex-British Martial Arts champion and use the training skills and fitness regimes I used to get to the top of my sport, to create challenging and varied classes, that engage your whole body and create a complete positive change in your physical health and mindset.
I started learning boxing to gain some self defense skills and improve my fitness. I moved on to Kickboxing and then Thai Boxing. At the height of my fighting career, I held undefeated titles in Kickboxing and Thai boxing.
I use the skills and disciplines I learnt over my 30+ years in the martial arts and fitness arena to assist my group and personal training clients achieve better health, fitness, mobility and a more determined focus on achieving their long term goals.

Non-contact Boxercise classes to get you fighting fit in a safe, friendly and fun environment.
Outdoors Fitness: 1 and 2 hour classes to get that fresh air endorphin rush, massive calorie burn and mega fitness/ strength improvements.
Classes start with gentle mobilization to prepare your body for exercise. In the Boxercise classes there is then a partner based non-contact boxing circuit, which is followed by a bodyweight or weighted circuit. The class ends with some gentle stretches and mobility drills.
Hand sanitizer and anti-bacterial wipes are provided in the indoor classes.
I asked for Brian's help after seeing a photo of myself and realised I needed to shift more than a few pounds. He delivered a series of personal training sessions to kick-start me into getting back in shape. The workouts comprised of a combination of cardio and weights. Brian is very professional in his approach and knows exactly what he is doing. Each session was challenging yet varied and I felt that I was pushed to the limit. More importantly, he gave me the confidence to put into practice what I had learned from his training sessions. I will be attending the Toughen Up classes as I can also see the value of a group workout. However, I would not hesitate to recommend Brian as a personal trainer. He is exceptional and a real gem!

The Toughen Up classes are the best. My fitness has improved greatly and I have dropped a dress size! The classes have a friendly atmosphere and the instructors are excellent and very approachable. Each class is different so you never get bored. Fantastic workout sessions. Kathryn H.
The Toughen Up sessions cover a variety of cardiovascular and muscle conditioning exercises alongside boxercise, all in a fun and motivating environment. Each session contains different exercises and this provides a new challenge every time you attend. Andrew K.
Toughen Up is a excellent way of getting fit for a great price. Starting off with a warm up session then moving on to pad work, which the instructor shows you how to use with the right technique. A circuit is also used to get us to work hard for a a period of time this is followed by a cool down. I think Toughen Up is the best service i have used to keep fit, not only its a hard work out, its a fun work out for everyone. Grant F.
