Happy New Year everyone🎉🍾😀

2016 was an amazing year personally & professionally, starting 2 new businesses after 30 years in the corporate world has been a great experience, there is nothing like working for yourself, all the fear, responsibility & pride it brings.

Aim4Fitness & Aim4Performance although very different companies, they both focus on supporting, training & developing people to achieve their potential, whether that be for martial arts, personal fitness or in business.

Both companies have benefited from the generosity, honesty, insight & experience of wonderful people who have helped me get started, to be associated so closely with Fusion MAC & Dove Nest Group is a real privilege.

In Kickboxing, becoming 2016 WKC Double World Champion, European Champion & English Champion as well as FSK Triple Grand Champion is beyond any dreams I ever had taking up this wonderful sport 6 years ago, Sensei Nick Guy has built an amazing club with amazing people.

Senseis Ste Grimshaw & Heidi Bond fought their hearts out taking Silvers & Bronzes in Portugal with 15 year old Sensei Keiron Greenwood dominating his category & becoming WKC World Champion. It was a truly unforgettable experience for us all.

For Triathlon, 2 PBs this year firstly in Kendal & most satisfyingly Ilkley, smashing the magic 80mins, this is the toughest for me, I’m not built for any of the disciplines & I find the training & nutrition side really hard, its a true love & hate relationship but so worth it when you cross the finish line.
