Head Olympic Lifting Coach & British Weight lifting coach
Neil Devenish started his fitness career as a student of the Rising Crane Centre, learning Kung Fu and Mixed Martial Arts. After several years he achieved black belt and instructor status in 2006. From there he developed a deeper understanding of how conditioning plays a pivotal role in martial arts performance and grew his interest in how this can be applied more broadly for health and sports fitness.
Neil used Kettlebells extensively in his own training and with his clients. Neil was the strength and conditioning coach for the MMA fighters at Rising Crane and has trained professional footballers as well as a local football team. Neil has been successful in attaining an NVQ Level 3 in Personal Training and has supplemented his practical skill and knowledge further with a number of qualifications in strength and conditioning, and Olympic weight lifting. He is currently working with Core Performance to provide weight lifting and strength and conditioning coaching.
