Certified UK Boxing Coach And Strength Trainer Derek Breakenridge Takes His Thriving Training Program Online

LONDON, Feb. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- At the 2012 London Olympics, Britain's boxers, led by gold medalists Nicola Adams, Luke Campbell and Anthony Joshua, won a total of five medals, the country's best showing in the sport ever - resulting in a massive 44.5% increase from UK Sport's 2016 Olympics funding program to 13.8m pounds, or over $22.5 million.   

Boxing, always one of the most participated in sports around the world, has never been more popular in the UK – an exciting reality that has only increased the need for dedicated trainers like "Boxing Coach Derek" Breakenridge, a certified boxing coach, strength trainer and fitness writer who, in addition to having a thriving private clientele, is honored to be head coach to a team of boxers in one of the world's most respected gyms in East London. He also volunteers a minimum of 150 hours each year mentoring local boxers.

Breakenridge has been a huge fan of boxing since he was a teenager, but several injuries and resulting surgery in his teens precluded him from pursuing it as a potential career. The Scottish born lifelong sports enthusiast's success as a coach, and the endless opportunities for coaching kids and adults of all ages in the wake of Britain's 2012 boxing boom, affirms for Breakenridge that he made the right decision when disillusion with the corporate world (after a successful career in the City of London) led him to reconsider his life and pursue his true passion.

"After my certification, I went around to different gyms and got involved volunteering with amateur clubs and training young boxers," he says. "Eventually, I started training at some of the better clubs in East London, coaching kids as young as six and up to 35 for those in the amateur system working towards becoming pro."

Continually driven to share his knowledge and training skills with as many students as possible, Breakenridge -- who also works in a support role for special ed teachers who work with blind students – is expanding his reach online for those who live outside of London and cannot train with him face to face.

Calling himself "an Enthusiast, an Obsessive, your Coach and Friend," Breakenridge via his website ( www.boxingcoachderek.com) offers online coaching and sport specific training programs.

The essential templates are up and running for his training plans, in which Breakenridge will show clients from across the globe how to train harder, eat smarter and rest well for "knockout success" and ultimate boxing fitness. Aiming to make boxing accessible for all, he shares tried and trusted old school techniques while challenging traditional dogma through innovative training methods.
