Fidel Tukel knows that boxers have to be in excellent shape to be able to take a beating and continue to dole out punishment in the ring. Being able to move your feet and stay focused longer than your opponent is a huge factor in all boxing matchups. The same goes for rugby. The team that can outrun and take the most punishment on the field usually wins. Rugby is a contact sport played with no pads. Players have to take their punishment and still be able to think tactically in ways that other sports don’t need them to. But boxing conditioning provides rugby players to practice under similar conditions to a rugby game, while developing the skills in individual workouts they need to succeed on the rugby field.

Fidel Tukel has helped many rugby players and boxers prepare for their next event. He has experience working closely with athletes of all kinds on their conditioning and strength so that they can create opportunities for themselves and their teams in the ring and on the field.
