Instructor Ste Rogerson
Instructor In Training Mike Bradley
When I started I had no coordination or level of fitness, under the guidance of Kru Rick Lewis I lost over 25kg of weight and won the English AKA championships 2011.
I now teach the kids and adults Muay Thai classes and also teach on a one to one basis, my classes are mixed, anything from cardio to strength to coordination and I make them as enjoyable as possible.
I continue to learn and develop my skills passing my knowledge on through classes and private lessons.
Muay Thai hasn’t just got me fit and lost weight, my confidence is so much higher than it ever was, I started late and wish I had started earlier but that should not deter anyone from starting, age is but a number and I am proving that.

Club Development Officer Marie Dixon
“I have been training at Phoenix Muay Thai for just over a year now. I originally joined the club to regain my fitness and to get in better shape but found myself quickly enjoying the sport and I am focusing on competing.
My role as club development officer involves helping to improve in various ways the day to day running of the club and help to ensure that the members get the best experience that they can from being a member of Phoenix Muay Thai. Having had eight years of sports development experience, I thought it would be great to put this experience to use to help the club I enjoying training at so much.”
