Biography

Further information about Gareth Tipping :

What got you interested in kickboxing?
I walked past the Gym one Saturday afternoon and met Mr Murray closing for the day, I asked was I too old to take up the training and he said it was never too late. Try the six week beginner course and see if you like it. I was hooked from the first class and I have now been training for about 18 months and have lost around 3 stone and I am now working towards my Blue belt. Turning 40 next year I have never felt so healthy, fit or strong doing any other sports in the past. I train at Prokick about 4-5 times a week.

What are your future ambitions?
I am currently working towards my first competitive fight and I also want to reach the grade of black belt before the age of 45. Just trying to get better and learn from the great team of instructors and members at Prokick.

What are your hobbies out side kickboxing?
I run 3-4 times a week and I am also a Massive Chelsea fan other than that just working in our family business. Spending time with my wife and little Pug.
