In an evergrowing sport, the Learning Hub Kickboxing Club in Limerick is fast earning a reputation as one of the best.
We went out to the club recently where we caught up with Hayleigh Kiely and Tyrone Cronin to get an insight into the success of the club.
With six national titles draped behind them, champion Kiely outlined the importance of kickboxing in her life, with much dedication to her sport.
Kiely: “I’m training since I was five years of age, Going to school, come home, go training and its the same everyday.
It’s a way of life. Some people don’t understand but I’m so used to it, it’s just a thing I do.”
Fellow champion Tyrone Cronin, hopes that with hard work he can begin to earn a living doing something he enjoys.
“For me, it’s keep fighting and keep progressing. Build up more experience The more experience I get, the better I’ll get. The more I improve the higher the standard of fights where I can go professional and earn money doing something I like.”
For Kiely, the goal is the same,
Kiely: “The main goal is to become professional.”
“I want to get my degree done first and then switch over (to professional).”
