First of many testimonials from Rutland Kickboxing students….
Mike: Senior Physiotherapist
Having moved away from a decent level of rugby union and distance running I was looking for a training challenge to keep myself motivated. I am now two months into regular training with Rutland Kickboxing and am becoming fitter and more focussed. I have developed dedication to my training and find the occasional pad round the head very useful as motivation. From here, onwards and upwards..
P.S. As a senior physiotherapist within the NHS, I would thoroughly recommend Danny’s approach to training, development and safety.

What everyone loves about exercise is that it can make you feel good, look good and allows you to occasionally (or quite often in my case) indulge in the naughty things that taste so fantastic. The bad thing about exercise is it’s hard to get motivated to do it week in, week out and you probably don’t enjoy it that much. At least that was the conclusion I had come to before I found Rutland Kickboxing. I had stopped and started at different gyms (and wasted £100s on unutilised gym memberships) and attending the different studio classes that were available, but I never really got into it or enjoyed it.
I then came across Rutland Kickboxing with Danny Byrne and I haven’t looked back since! I started attending the public classes and quickly started to really enjoy the sessions as well as soon seeing results. When I got pregnant (nothing to do with Danny I might add), I continued to train right up to 38 weeks and 6 weeks after giving birth I started training again. With Danny’s help and guidance I safety and responsibly lost my baby weight and returned to my old shape (the new improved shape I got from the training originally) within a sensible timeframe and I don’t have any stretch marks or saggy skin to prove it. I now enjoy kickboxing so much that I moved on from the pad work and technique and regularly enjoy sparring!
I have now been training with Danny for nearly four years and I haven’t lost the interest or enthusiasm, which in no small part is down to Danny being a great instructor.
I have been training with Danny for about 3 years and always enjoyed the sessions. It’s always hard to commit to something and have the initial push to go there, but after the first session you discover muscles you never thought you had and go back for more.
Because it’s an all round exercise class, it’s your general fitness that improves not just certain body parts. It’s also a great ‘tension releaser’ as you punch your frustration out! Great when you are working with teenagers all day!
The classes are great fun and you get to know different people and improve together. I hugely recommend them.

I have been going to Dan’s kickboxing class for around 8 months and have so far lost 1.5 stone with no dieting! Now at 38 I feel fitter and more confident than ever before. The weight loss is only part of the story – my body shape has changed. The flab has nearly gone, and my body has definition like I haven’t seen since my early 20’s. If you feel overweight and crap like I did, but love your food, give Dan’s class a go – you might surprise yourself! I have discovered that regular physical exercise is the key to happiness (for me anyway). Yes it’s hard at first as your body gets used to it, but believe me the rewards make it all worth while. I assure you there were few lazier than me when it came to physical exercise, but Dan has shown me the way. I will never let my body go again!
