2015Boxing Science got off to a great start, with thousands of views, links with Boxing News and a growing audience.
This attention helped us attract new consultancies, starting our 1-1 packages with Professional boxers Adam Etches, Jordan Gill, Sam Sheedy and Kyle Yousaf.
We also developed links with England Boxing, and together we set up the first ever sport science training program for a regional amateur association with Yorkshire Boxing. International, National and Regional amateur champions took part in a 25 week sport science program at Sheffield Hallam University. The program was part-funded by Yorkshire Boxing, which halved the price for 20 young, aspiring boxers.
Our social initiaves are to make sport science available to youth athletes at an affordable price. We were fortunate to secure funding from the Hallam Student Union, in which we invested in sponsoring amateur boxers and youth training programs. The stand-out event is when we hosted the Summer Youth Training Workshop where we hosted 10 young boxers for a week of educational and practical sport science sessions.
We kicked off 2016 with the launch of the Accelerated Performance Series - a free 10-week sport science educational program accessed by over 1000 subscribers. We recieved excellent feedback, and we can't wait to hear what you think of our remastered version.
2016 also saw the return of Barry Awad, otherwise known as Kid Galahad. Since May, we have provided Barry with ful sport science support with strength training, movement drills and high-intensity conditioning. Three warm-up fights prior to his assualt on the Featherweight world scene.
The highlights of our year came over the summer when supporting Kell Brook in his quest for greatness by taking on Gennady Golovkin. Despite GGG being much feared in his own weight division, Kell was willing to jump up two-weight divisions to take on the 'Kazahk Thunder'. We implemented a detailed and well-structured sport science program to help Kell become a better athlete at Middleweight. Despite losing, Kell did himself and the UK proud in giving Golovkin his hardest fight to date by troubling him with silky skills, blistering combinations and a high-pace.
Late 2016 saw us launch our first electronic program 'Train Like A Champion' - five handbooks on strength, movement and fitness training, as well as nutrition, testing and programming guides. The program has been hugely successful and been delivered worldwide, with people able to access Boxing Science from Australia, Mexico and USA.
