Elite Fitness Fight Night 11 - What a new boxer has to say!

Oct 23

Hello, my name is Matt "The Bristol Pistol" Snelus and I have signed up to the Elite Fitness Fight Night on 14th November.

So you may be asking why would I want to sign up to something where I get pushed to my limits of fatigue, agree to getting punched in the head and body (for fun) and going toe to toe with another local business person in front of 3-400 people under bright lights and cameras? Well I blame it on the signup technique of Mark and Lindsay of Elite! If you want to get someone to commit to an event such as white collar boxing then make sure you approach them at a boozy networking event in a pub and take the payment for the 9 week course there and then!

Having played a lot of rugby over the years and always keen on keeping fit I saw it as a challenge that I wanted to undertake. Last year was the Cardiff Half Marathon and this year, the early onset of a mid life crisis...... So how has the last 6 weeks been and is it what I was expecting?

Being a total "combat virgin" prior to signing up, I was very much venturing into the unknown but of course had some pretty vivid preconceptions. I can categorically say it hasn't disappointed and I have loved every minute of it! This is down to the training staff, the intensity of the training itself and learning a new skill which pushes me to my limits. I've lost 4kg in 5 weeks and feel like a new man (the wife's happy too as she gets to feel a new man also), which is a bonus! :-) Nothing prepares you however for when Mark comes up to you, in week 3, taps you on your shoulder whilst handing you a headguard and says "Matt you're up, get ready to spar" You look around the gym trying to suss who he is going to put you in the ring with and the genuine squeaky bum fear kicks in.

3 weeks on from that night and it certainly doesn't get any easier but at least you have resided yourself to the fact that you're going to get hit, a lot, and you've just got to focus on what's in front of you. I'm sure the intensity will grow exponentially leading up to the fight itself and on the night, adrenaline, excitement, nervous energy and desire to make friends proud who are there supporting you will takeover.

If you were to approach me and say should you do this next year, then I'd have to say for the 9 week training course and the way you feel at the end, absolutely no shadow of a doubt. Whether you should get in the ring at the end of it, ask me on 15th November...........

Thanks for your support and enjoy the night!
We have a 6 week Contender course that always runs before registration for each Fight Night - if you're nervous about getting in that ring, like Matt did, you can try it out (and get a head start on the other boxers!!).
Follow us on Twitter @EliteFitnessCF5 to find out when you can sign up for Contender and your own Elite Fitness Fight Night!
You can buy tickets and tables to see Matt fight on 14th November at The Vale Hotel here:

I do believe all the concepts you've presented on your post. They are really convincing and can definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are very quick for starters. May just you please prolong them a little from next time? Thank you for the post.

When I originally commented I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. There has to be an easy method you can remove me from that service? Thanks!
