This is my first blog that I have posted since Andy and Deano have begun blogging about the fields and interests they have in their chosen sports, for example nutrition and weight lifting among many other topics.
Come September I will be entering a charity white collar boxing event called zero to hero. Being a sporting enthusiast I have always been keen to try my hand at boxing, although rugby is my bread and butter and the passion that drives me to train hard, I couldn’t let the chance be lost for a dabble at boxing.
As this is a charity event I will be raising as much money as I can for the Harvey Hext appeal. Since the fitness hubs reopening, I have been involved in many different events to help raise much needed money for this extremely local and worthy cause! And what a better way to help raise money and enter a new field into the sporting world then the zero to hero event!!
Since breaking my elbow last November playing rugby no other, and having reconstructive surgery to enable to have use of my arm again. I was told that I would not be able to play any contact sport for the rest of my life. But through much research and personal rehabilitation just 3 months after the operation I was given the all clear and was able to return to rugby, which I did and finished the season.
This is in no contrast what the family of the Harvey Hext appeal have to go through every day of year, and even though at the time I was down and out, it has only made me ever more grateful to have the life I live, the friends and work colleges I have and the relationship I have with my girlfriend!
The fight night will be held in November this year, after a 10 week training programme, as I am fighting for the Harvey Hext appeal no matter who I am put up against I WILL NOT LOSE that is a promise I am willing to throw down. I will be 110% committed to my training with extras from rugby conditioning and people I work with. So Zero to Hero compotators watch this space and pray we are not standing toe to toe, the fire in the belly is raging!!!!
Follow me on blogger and on the fitness hub face book page as I will be regularly posting blogs and photos, as I progress through my training.
