Head of Strength & Conditioning, Co-founder
Fairuz, commonly known as Fai in the gym, takes the role of Head of Strength & Conditioning. He is the brains behind our Legends Core classes. He knows how to make your legs feel like jelly and you’ll surely remember him for the rest of the day (probably till the next morning) after surviving his class.
His conditioning programme is sport specific for boxing and other combat athletes. His training methods are not to make you the perfect fighter but to be the best kind of fighter you can be. Boxers or fighters are more than just fighting machines; there’s human spirit, rhythm, and numerous intangibles. It’s beyond just about being strong in the ring. It’s about being strong enough for you to be yourself.
