Atif ‘Unique’ Shafiq was one of the original boxers coming down to Sheffield Hallam University prior to the launch of Boxing Science in 2014. Atif attended ‘Combat Conditioning’, our Saturday morning low-cost S&C sessions that helped spread the word about our programmes.
Fast-forward to 2019 and 20 or so fights later, the Rotherham lightweight joined the Boxing Science programme full-time by joining the morning group sessions and 1-1 consultancy.
We spent the first year building strength and movement foundations on key lifts, with the view to work faster and more dynamically in the near future.
Atif perfects his craft at Heavy Hitters gym in Manchester under the guidance of coach Haroon Headley.
