John tiftik

A coaching professional with over 20 years of experience in the health & fitness industry who is goal orientated and results driven!


I have been boxing since the age of 10 having successful amateur and professional careers. I am also a certified level 3 YMCA personal trainer (since 1996) and have great knowledge in strength and conditioning.


Upon retiring from my boxing career (which was cut short due to injury) I obtained my professional trainers and managers licenses and have worked with a number of fighters such as,


Jamal Morrison, British light middleweight challenger.


Paul Bowen, former Southern area super middleweight champion and top ranked British challenger.


Toks Owoh, Formerly ranked in the World top 5 super middleweights by the IBF and IBF intercontinental champion.


Adrian Dodson, Former Barcelona Olympic quarter finalist, former British and Commonwealth champion, former WBO intercontinental champion, former IBO super middleweight champion, and former WBO world title challenger.


Ashley Theophane, former British light welterweight champion, former GBC world champion and former IBO intercontinental champion. Currently fighting under Floyd Mayweather Promotions.


During my working career I have worked alongside a selection of osteopaths/physiotherapists, which has allowed me to develop a solid experience and knowledge of dealing with injury rehabilitation cases. My experience and services have also been acquired to work with different athletes helping them with their strength & conditioning and improving their performance levels.

Due to the diversity of the client base I have worked with, I am comfortable interacting with people of all cultural and social backgrounds, from students to city executives and sports persons.


Over the years I have helped many people reach their goals whether it be weight loss, performance fitness, body sculpting or strength & conditioning.
