In the long overdue 2nd episode of the podcast….

Former two-times World champion and owner of K-Star Legacy Gym UK, Damien Trainor generously shares his hard-earned Muay Thai knowledge – from both competing at the highest level in the early 90’s and onwards, and as a world renowned coach in the present day.

We cover a lot in our chat together. Get a pen and paper at the ready, and be prepared to make some notes!

You can learn more about, and more from Damien at his gym website here

And his instructional videos on the Warrior Collective Marketplace here

Each episode revolves around my Four Big Questions

  1. What’s Your Story?
  2. What’s Your Why?
  3. What Makes A Champion?
  4. Challenges And Lessons Learned?

Digging into the answers to these questions helps uncover and share both the commonalities, and the differences in the journey to become a champion. And can help inspire and fast-track your journey too.
