“I’m now into my 3rd year as a professional boxer and have worked with many strength and conditioning coaches and therapists over this period and also prior to being a professional during my amateur days.
I was referred to Neil Crawford by my MTK boxing manager Matthew Macklin as I was suffering with a chronic back injury that was hindering not only my training and professional future, but actually all areas of my life where physical movement was needed.
I knew that if Matthew Macklin highly recommended Neil, bearing in mind Matthew had a great career as a boxer challenging for world honours on a number of occasions and winning various domestic & international titles, then I knew Neil must be good at his job!
In the 6 months I’ve been working with Neil, he has not only treated and fixed my chronic back injury (something nobody else had been capable of) with his expert knowledge and treatments, but he’s also strengthened up the problematic area so it’s in better working order than before the injury.
With the back injury aside, Neil and I have been working together developing strength and fitness for my boxing for the last 3-4 fights and already my strength and power has gone through the roof! Long gone are the days of simply grinding out long hard sessions in the gym that would incur injuries and have no benefit whatsoever to my game as a boxer, but instead, Neil has a knack of applying science and a “less is more” approach to training where we do more effective methods of training with maximum gains!
If you want a trainer that is no-nonsense, knowledgable in all areas of health, fitness and general well being, then Neil’s the man. If your sport specific and want to improve performance then again Neil’s the man! He’s got my career well on track and improved my performance both in and out the ring whilst staying injury free. That’s what you call a trainer!
Looking forward to a big future working together with Neil and I’d highly recommend him as the results simply speak for them-self.”
