INSTRUCTORS

KOBOX is about changing the game when it comes to boxing, and its instructors personify this very sentiment. For the KOBOX trainers, it's not about ego, it's not about notoriety, it's about giving you the chance to escape your everyday life and have one hell of a workout!

All of the instructors here want to punch the living crap out of the stigma attached to boxing, and show that whoever you are, whatever your ability or fitness level, KOBOX can teach you the fundamentals of boxing, and get you in the shape of your life!

So let’s meet the incredible group who make all of this possible.  

SHANE

THE MAN WHO MADE IT ALL HAPPEN.


MR COLLINS IS, IN FACT, MR KOBOX, FROM THE MINUTE HE WAKES TO
THE MINUTE HE SLEEPS – WHICH ARE USUALLY ABOUT 23 HOURS APART.

HE’S KOBOX’S RESIDENT IRISHMAN – MR ‘100 PER CENT’ –
WHICH JUST SO HAPPENS TO BE HIS FAVOURITE SAYING.

FLYING UP THE RANKS FROM OLYMPIC STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING
COACH TO THE KOBOX GODFATHER, HE’S TRODDEN JUST ABOUT
EVERY FITNESS BOARD THERE IS BETWEEN LONDON AND L.A.,
CHANGING THE GAME IN THE PROCESS.

NIKE-TRAINER-OBSESSED, BAD-SOCK-OPPRESSED,
BUT THAT’S JUST GRAND… AS HE’LL TELL YOU HIMSELF.

OLLIE

OUR BROWN BEAR, OLLIE LEE.

 

HE’S TALL, DARK AND HANDSOME, AND ESSENTIALLY IMPOSSIBLE
NOT TO LOVE… DESPITE BEING AN ARSENAL FAN.

 

AWAY FROM HIS QUESTIONABLE RUCKSACKS, OLLIE IS KOBOX’S
MR NICE GUY. HE’LL GLIDE YOU THROUGH YOUR CLASS WITH ALL
THE GRACE AND COMPOSURE HE SHOWED TO GAIN HIS PILOT'S LICENCE.
COOL, EH?

 

IF YOU’RE FEELING WORKED UP, OLLIE WILL NURTURE YOU BACK
TO SANITY… HE’S JUST ABOUT THE BEST GROUP FITNESS TRAINER THERE IS. 

NO QUESTION IS TOO SILLY FOR HIM TO ANSWER, NO FAVOUR TOO HUGE
TO ASK HIM FOR.

 

A PROUD FAMILY MAN AND FATHER, BROWN BEAR REPRESENTS
THE HEART AND SOUL OF KOBOX… JUST MAKE SURE HE’S GOT
SOMEWHERE TO HANG HIS COAT.

IAN

MR BOXING. THERE ISN’T ANOTHER LIKE HIM, NOR AS GOOD AS HIM.

 

A FORMER COMPETITOR IN THE ART AS WELL AS A STUNTMAN,
CHALLENGE IAN STREETZ WITH JUST ABOUT ANYTHING, AND
HE’LL DO IT BETTER THAN YOU. IT’S BLOODY ANNOYING.

 

STREETZ HAS TRAINED OLYMPIC AND PRO BOXERS. IF HE DOESN’T KNOW
THE ANSWER TO A BOXING-RELATED QUESTION, IT’S NOT WORTH KNOWING.
FOR REAL.

 

KOBOX’S WALKING BOXING ENCYCLOPEDIA IS LONDON’S GO-TO IF YOU’RE
THINKING OF PICKING UP A PAIR OF GLOVES FOR THE FIRST TIME.

 

AWAY FROM BOXING, STREETZ IS, WELL, PROBABLY BOXING… OR EATING.

JAY

JAY BROWN IS QUITE SIMPLY, THE BEAST.

 

A TRAINER, AN ACTOR AND, WELL, THE MAN WHO BRINGS THE NOISE!

 

WITH A HEART BIGGER THAN HIS WING-SPAN
(THAT OF A 6FT MAN, BELIEVE IT OR NOT) HE’S KOBOX’S
UNAPOLOGETIC, RAMPAGING WHIRLWIND. 
YOU WILL ALWAYS
REMEMBER THE DAY YOU MET JAY BROWN…

 

IF YOU WANT TO TRAIN TO PUSH YOURSELF TO THE LIMIT, TO
COME OUT WITH A TOUCH OF TINNITUS, DRIPPING WITH SWEAT
AND CURSING THE VERY MOMENT YOU BOOKED INTO CLASS,
THEN JAY’S ‘BEASTMODE’ MAY JUST BE THE TICKET FOR YOU.

THERE’S QUITE SIMPLY NO FITNESS CLASS LIKE IT.

 

JAY WILL MAKE YOU STRONGER. BRAVER. BETTER.

SHAPE AND PUSH YOU TO BE THE BEST YOU CAN BE…
IT’S A BIT OF A JOKE HOW EASY SHE MAKES IT ALL LOOK.

 

WHETHER SHE’S SKIPPING AROUND ONE OF THE KOBOX
STUDIOS, PUNISHING PEOPLE DURING ‘OPERATION ABS’ OR
ADMIRING HER NEW APPLE iENGAGEMENT RING, YOU’LL INEVITABLY
FEEL MORE ENERGISED, JOYFUL AND OPTIMISTIC ABOUT LIFE
HAVING SPENT TIME WITH MACIELA.

PUT THE HOURS IN, AND PUT ON ONE HELL OF A CLASS FOR YOU…
ALL WITH A HUGE SMILE ON HIS FACE.

 

KING OF THE ‘OLD SCHOOL THURSDAYS’ CLASS AT KOBOX’S CITY STUDIO,
A-TRAIN WILL PUSH YOU TO YOUR LIMIT AND HAVE YOU HITTING THE
BAG UNTIL YOU DROP, PROBABLY LAUGHING THE WHOLE TIME…
BUT THAT’S PART OF HIS CHARM. IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE IT,
