Our Member of The Month for November 2016 is Daniel Brown. Danny has been attending classes since January this year, and we’ve witnessed dramatic increases in his fitness and boxing abilities in the last 11 months. He is extremely friendly, approachable, and his helpful attitude is what earned him this recognition.
He had first heard about Contenders from his friend (and our ex-coach) Nikhilesh, and he says “I wanted to lose some weight, and I needed to do some exercise to get fit. The hardest part of boxing for me was getting motivated to come down every day – but oh man, I am so glad I did, because it is one of the best choices I ever made.”
He works construction, and describes himself as “a working, blue collar guy”. In his spare time he likes to play pool and chess, and hang around Commercial Drive with his friends. He says his favourite class is the 4:30 series- “I love the combinations and the movement; I love the way it gets me thinking, and makes me use my brain. My goal for the future is to start sparring, and then who knows, maybe I will eventually get to have a match if I feel I progress enough!”
