Shane McGuigan

Having started as a successful amateur boxer winning three national titles, Shane found himself increasingly drawn to the science of strength and fitness. Not one to do things by halves, Shane studied under the world-renowned Charles Poliquin, enrolled at the elite Irish Strength Institute in Dublin, and absorbed knowledge from intensive courses all over the world. From there he has become a unique type of boxing coach. Where others focus on sparring and delegate responsibility for strength and conditioning and nutrition, Shane covers all bases, ensuring everything is aligned to produce a fighter in prime condition on fight night. His methods have helped propel Carl Frampton to world champion status and led to a high demand for his services amongst top fighters. Having opened McGuigan’s Gym in Battersea, his training stable included many top fighters such as David Haye, Carl Frampton, George Groves and Josh Taylor. Working with different body shapes, weight classes and personalities, he designs tailored programmes to bring out the best both mentally and physically to prepare the boxers in the highly pressurised lead into a fight.
