Feeling The Benefits Every Day!
Training at City Kickboxing is one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life. The place is amazing and all different disciplines offer the best of what kickboxing and MMA is all about.
I had never practiced contact Martial Arts. I was a fan of Muay Thai and MMA as a spectator. One afternoon, I decided to go and see the facility and the classes that were offered. I was offered a free trial session of kickboxing. Subsequently, I enrolled in the Muay Thai program for one month and didn’t need more than that to be hooked!
I’ve been training with Doug Viney and Eugene Bareman for just over 4 years. Both Doug and Eugene come highly trained, originating as founding members of the New Zealand fight community training under Lolo Hemuli at the original Lee Gar gym in Balmoral and are both respected professionals with outstanding national and international achievements to their names. Doug Viney, training in camp Ray Sefo achieved K1 USA Kickboxing number one status in 2007 and Eugene Bareman winning several national BJJ competitions.
I recommend both Doug and Eugene as a personal trainers, Muay Thai and MMA instructors. They are excellent, very personable and fun while being professional and constantly challenging me to improve. I’ve reaped great rewards from my training thus far including: weight loss, increased endurance, strength and muscle, greater mental focus, discipline and most of all self-confidence.
Doug has taught me the basics in technique, form and function of this amazing martial art through the constant introduction of new techniques and drills while mixing up my workouts so I do not become complacent while always challenging me to realize my potential.
The high-light for me would have to be travelling to Las Vegas and training with Ray Sefo, Randy Couture and Doug at Extreme Couture – SIMPLY AWESOME!!!
Whether it’s for an intense course in muay thai, MMA or a session of cross training, City Kickboxing is the ideal place to get in shape or stay that way.
Like everyone, I had some fears at the beginning. I experienced some moments of doubt. But I feel the benefits every day. These priceless benefits are what make me take the time in my busy corporate schedule to stick with my training.
All in all, I think City Kickboxing is a great place to build your confidence and improve yourself. I wholeheartedly encourage people of all ages to come discover this training centre, which is a wonderful spot to work out and where everyone can profit from one another’s experience.
Do not have the slightest hesitation to come and visit Doug Viney, Eugene Bareman and the team at City Kickboxing, I am privileged to not only train here but can say these boys are two of my best friends.
