BOXING PERSONAL TRAINING
This impressive and at the same time elegant combat sport is the oldest and can be traced all the way back to its inclusion in the ancient Olympic Games of 688 BC. Limited only to the use of the hands, boxers use angles, legwork and avoidance movements to get into the right striking distance.
The decisive element in boxing is a fighter’s tactic. An efficient attack depends on the ability to land fast and precise punches to the opponent’s head and body. For this reason, as a boxing personal trainer, I attach great importance to conveying the basic maxims of boxing in each of my boxing sessions.
“Speed – Timing – Distance”
and should never be forgotten during boxing training.
My personal training usually starts with a 15-minute warm-up, followed by shadow boxing. I always include exercises that focus on footwork. After subsequently stretching all muscle groups, we often work on the punchbag or with focus mitts.
Between the rounds, during boxing personal training we usually jump into demanding exercise routines so that we can maintain your heart rate and burn more calories while perfecting your techniques. We will integrate defence techniques, sharpen your senses, and learn how to block and avoid punches, shoulder roll, and incorporate feints into your arsenal. No matter whether it’s fitness boxing, competition training or ‘manager boxing’ for professionals: as your boxing personal trainer in HamburgI will adjust 100% to your needs.
My passion that started it all.
As a boxing personal trainer, I cover pretty much every kind of boxing. Muay Thai is Thailand’s national sport. This hard, incredibly dynamic and at the same time fascinating combat sport demands everything from those who practise it. The history of Muay Thai is deeply rooted in the tradition of Thailand. For many Thais it is more than just a sport – it is a way of life and their living.
Muay Thai is referred to as the art of eight limbs. Unlike western boxing, this martial art allows the use of the fists, legs, elbows and knees, so all extremities with their eight points of contact. Muay Thai originates from an older martial art known as Muay Boran, which developed on battlefields. Due to its complexity and the use of different weapons, it goes far beyond the techniques of modern Muay Thai. Thai boxing offers an ideal all-round programme in personal training and is suitable for fitness routines, fat burning and self-defence. This self-defence aspect makes workouts particularly suitable for women.
K-1 kickboxing is a modern mixture of different Thai and traditional kickboxing techniques. However, the use of elbow punches, sweeps and throws is not allowed. Infighting must take place without clinching and can last 3–5 seconds, during which the fighter can use several knee strikes. This fighting style is characterised by its fast pace, with emphasis on movement and a combination of boxing techniques and hard kicks. During a fast-paced session with focus mitts or a punchbag, as your boxing personal trainer I pay special attention to correct execution and motivate you when your weaker self is ready to return to the sofa. Regardless of whether you want your fitness session to focus on boxing or kickboxing, injury-free workouts are my top priority.
Your Boxing Coach offers far more than learning how to box – Your Boxing Coach is your personal fitness trainer in Hamburg and supports you with a wealth of experience and a wide range of training methods to deliver the results you want.
Constant sitting, looking down at your monitor, stress and too little exercise are responsible for many of the health problems of our time.
Resistance band training
It is well known that every extreme can be bad for you. After years of hard training, I too learned that my body was crying out for a break and that my not very intelligent “all-or-nothing” training concept simply wasn’t working any more. I had, of course, experienced my fair share of minor sports injuries over the years, but this time the diagnosis was a slipped disc. So what could I do?
Doctors strongly advised me against Brazilian jiu-jitsu, as well as Thai and kickboxing training, because without healthy, scientifically sound training to compensate for them, both of these sports can put unnecessary strain on the joints during periods of extreme exertion. I therefore decided to completely change my training, developed my own training concept and, in the 13 years since, have acquired as much knowledge as possible about the human body and effective strength, mobility and fitness training. This change meant that I was able to avoid surgery, but also put an end to my daily pain and the associated movement restrictions.
To this day I love high-intensity training. The fact that I have regained my own health gives me even more pleasure to be able to help at times inexperienced athletes by offering competition training and as a boxing personal trainer in Hamburg.
Through regular training with a firm basis in sports science, our boxing personal training sessions result in a combination of the right mix of exertion and recovery and a fundamental increase in your physical performance. As a positive side effect, complaints and risk factors are prevented, illnesses are avoided and treated, and your ability to recover is improved. Regular training with your boxing personal trainer in Hamburg will lead to a longer-lasting feeling of balance and improved psychological well-being.
Everybody knows that feeling of unease that comes from walking through a deserted multi-storey car park at night and encountering a group of shady strangers.
In principle, combat sports such as boxing, Thai and kickboxing, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu all offer a good basis to prepare students for an unexpectedly aggressive opponent. However, the fact that these are sports means that they concentrate exclusively on one-to-one encounters, with set techniques, delimited ranges and a fixed set of rules.
Real violence, on the other hand, is fast, dynamic and completely chaotic. At least one person in the confrontation will try to hurt another, and no one will know what the others will do next. It’s very unlike what you see in most films or learn in most martial arts classes.
Many traditional combat sports require you to focus on self-defence, but do not get you to train in halfway realistic situations (sparring or randori) where you encounter uncooperative opponents who will also strike back. Physical training is also only one side of the coin. Real self-defence starts in your head. Violence is negative and destructive, but if you start to become paranoid and suspect an attack around every corner, your quality of life drops and your fearful nature will attract aggressors like flies to a honeypot.
This is why in my boxing personal training realistic self-defence starts with the following three basic principles:
Prevention – Awareness – De-escalation
Building on this, we practise basic standard reactions that can be learned by anyone, so that you instinctively retrieve them in an emergency situation without even thinking. Instead of having a vast portfolio of techniques, on the street it is advantageous to keep a cool head and master a handful of easy-to-access practical techniques that even physically inferior individuals, such as smaller women or children, can apply safely, quickly and effectively in a variety of defence scenarios. In contrast to standard boxing training, we also deal blows with the open hand, reach out and learn how to free ourselves from seemingly hopeless situations in order to gain distance from the aggressor as quickly as possible. In this context, as your boxing personal trainer in Hamburg I also offer self-defence for women, children and teenagers in the form of popular group sessions for school classes and businesses.
