"I've always loved fitness and with a young family, Arthur's gave me the opportunity to train locally which was perfect for me. I was introduced to power lifting at the gym and soon realised how much I loved it. Since December I have trained hard and proven to myself that there's life in the old dog yet! Recently, I was honoured to represent Wales and to follow in my father-in-law's footsteps. Now I can't wait for more competitions! Without the dedication of Arthur's Gym team this would not have been possible. I'd like to thank Nicky May, Jamie Arthur and Paul Evans. Arthur's is a great gym!"
"I started boxing at the age of 10 at the Newbridge Boxing Gym. I won a Welsh title every year and I also won a British Schoolboy title. Aged 18, I turned professional and as a pro I've been Welsh, Intercontinental and Commonwealth champion. I've also challenged for the British title two times. One of my problems has always been dedication and due to putting a party social life first, my career suffered as I took fights unfit at short notice at higher weights.
Before joining Jamie Arthur and Paul Evans at Arthur's Gym I was training myself and boxing at middleweight (11st 6lbs). Since teaming up with Arthur's Gym, I am more focused and training better. I'm also now boxing at welterweight (10st 7lbs) and hope for a shot at the British champion. I've still got a lot to learn about boxing and each day with Jamie and Paul I'm learning more and more. A problem I had before was that I thought I knew best and I would just go in the ring and scrap. I now realise that it is a team effort and a trainer plays a big role in preparation, so each time I'm at the gym I'm listening to advice and taking it on board. Arthur's gym is helping me turn my career around!"
