Powerful Review of 2014

This year has been bigger than the last, I am truly happy that I have established a reputation for good S&C in Chelmsford Essex. Working not just my normal quarry of MMA and Combat athletes, but also pro-golfers, footballers and even a downhill skier.

Powering Through is nothing without the athletes that choose to train and learn with me, so huge thank you to all of you!

Here is a run down of some cool stuff from 2014.

His lifting parter Arnold Allen gets an honourable mention, despite a narrow loss to Marcin Wrzosek, Arnold has every other fighter in the Bantam Feather and Lightweight divisions terrified. After moving up a division to pick up the lightweight strap at Made For The Cage with six days notice.
