Boxfit Personal Training Cardiff KevinWhy train with me?

I have been working as a personal trainer in Cardiff for the last 12 years helping people of varying ages and abilities to reach their peak in fitness.

From an early age an interest and talent for sport has lead me to a successful career within the fitness industry.

With more than 10 years of competitive boxing experience and having reached the international stage boxing as an amateur I have had the chance to train with the elite athletes of today gaining invaluable experience and training techniques.

Following on from a successful boxing career I then found a new love in Kettlebell training after discovering the number one kettlebell training provider in the world through an organization known as the RKC. It revolutionised my understanding and approach to fitness, and with it how I train myself and others. I am currently the only RKC instructor in Wales.

This experience allows me to offer a unique type of exercise for group or individual sessions. So if you’re looking for something a little bit different to the bog standard gym session then you need to get involved.

The other key event in my fitness career was witnessing kettlebells’ effect on women. Little time passed before my female clients saw huge improvements in their physique, and in ways they never expected. But it was more than the physical. By simply learning how to lift heavy objects, the world had become less intimidating for them. They acquired a sense pride in doing the unexpected.

At that point I made it the mission of my business to teach the art of strength, a unique approach that delivers beautiful physiques and self-assured attitudes.

No job has ever been so impactful or positive to me. It’s why I look forward to every day of this awesome career.

Favourite Quotes

“Movement is a medicine for creating change in a person’s physical, emotional, and mental states.”


Inconsistency, lack of effort and prolonged work-outs…Why stay in the gym for 90 minutes when you can do it more effectively in 45 minutes?
