A lover of all things fitness, Luke Kelly has always enjoyed being involved in sports from a young age. In particular he likes boxing, martial arts, and more recently surfing and wakeboarding on the Gold Coast.
After bobbing and weaving through 20 years in the film industry, Luke decided it was time to take up a new challenge and start a new career. To him, it just made sense to follow his passion and so he enrolled in a Certificate III in Fitness at TAFE Queensland to start a new career.
Luke credits his teachers for their approachable teaching style and industry knowledge that let him to complete his course in just three months.
“I am really thankful for the TAFE Queensland teachers who gave of their time so generously so that I could gain my qualification,” said Luke.
With boxing being a keen interest from a young age and participating in many junior amateur boxing events, the 12 RND Fitness franchise at 110 Brisbane Road, Labrador seemed like a good fit.
“The 12 RND Fitness franchise was applicable for my business partner and I as it is relevant to everyday people, but has a great boxing element to the fitness program,” he said.
“Having your own business is great and you work harder in many ways. We have a very hands-on approach to running the gym, which has attracted many local men and women who enjoy the 45 minute workouts centred round a 12 round boxing contest, combing functional strength, cardio and boxing techniques.”
“This type of high intensity training has the benefit of allowing your body to continue to burn calories for up to 38 hours after each 12RND workout,” said Luke who believes this style of fitness is having a drastic improvement on healthy weight management.
“It’s great for everyone, especially men who are taking their workouts more seriously for health and longevity sake rather than pure aesthetics these days.”
