Look Good Feel Good
Awards for all funded program- Toe 2 Toe have been delivering projects within Coventry for almost 3 years. Witihn this period we have helped several hundred individuals become more confident in the approach to living in a ‘normal society’. Whilst working with a certain individual who over the course of 11 months has seen his weight drop from 24st to 15st he came up with the idea of helping others who have struggled with their diets. He claims our methodolgy of working with him was something that most professional agencies such as doctors, slimming worlds and dieticians that he used couldn’t get the results that we got. He approached us with the idea of delivering a project helping others to lose weight as well as get fit in the process. He has actively volunteered himself to help out on the project. Using his knowledge and success we have over a period of 2 months consulted with medical centres in the Canley and TIle Hill areas of Coventry, we have engaged with slimming clubs such as Slimming World and Weight Watchers and local community clubs. The feedback we got from these different organisations was quite staggering. We were not aware that their is a systematic problem wthin our children up to the age of 6 being classed as obese. Things are not much brighter for the adult sector also with over half adults being classed as overweight or obese. The doctors and the nurses we spoke to told us of their frustrations in seeing increasing numbers come to them because of illnesses which are directly linked to being overweight. Within this consultation period we spoke with 6 leading professionals and managed to talk to 19 overweight individuals who were referred to us or had heard about our volunteers achievements. They all wanted the results that he had managed to achieve. We want to deliver this project for a year and offer the help and support to those individuals suffering from ill health because of their weight and those who generally want to lose weight but are put of because going to a gym is intimidating to them because of their size. Look good feel good classes are Monday & Wednesday 5:00pm

WE ARE REACHING OUT FOR FINANCIAL SUPPORT FROM BUSINESS’S.
Leighton Brady owner/founder of Toe2Toe boxing & MMA Academy Ltd based in Canley, Coventry is looking to provide help, support, direction, fitness and stabilisation for underprivileged teens ranging between 14-18 years of age.
I feel we are losing teens to a society in which petty crime, drug taking, drinking and general anti social behaviour is becoming the normal procedure in the adolescent years which then breaks into a more serious lifestyle of crime.
I myself was no angel growing up as I had no one there to assist in my direction in life, fortunately I found boxing at the age of 21 which then led me on to where I am today. I am currently still competing in combat sports and recently fought one of the worlds best UFC/Bellator super stars (Melvin ‘The young assassin’ Guillard) in a professional BKB bout in Coventry. This was potentially my last ever fight as I am now 39 years of age so i am offering my full focus to give direction, belief and hope back into the community of the adolescent society by arranging group sessions on a weekly basis at my gym which has a floor space of 4,200SqFt. I also work with one of the UK’s largest combat sport organisations where we hold event’s in the Midlands, mainly Coventry at The Mercia Venue for some of the biggest and best prospects in the fight game industry, styles include- Boxing, MMA, K1, BJJ, BKB and Kickboxing. I am looking for support from business owners to get their companies and staff recognition for helping the underprivileged adolescent teen society from a life of crime by coming together and joining forces with myself to prevent this from happening. Your business logo and company info will be on all letter headings, social media sites, press releases and much more…!
