CrossFit Chester – “The Return” Tom Doran

The Return

 

CrossFit Chester wanted to give a shout out to one of our members – Tom Doran.

Tom will return to the ring after three years out with a huge homecoming fight at Deeside Leisure Centre this Sat 24th May – campaigning at super middleweight.

He had won his first 10 professional contests and was considered one of the brightest light middleweight prospects on the domestic scene before stepping back from the sport for 3 years.

Tom has been a member with us for 4 months and has worked on his strength and conditioning in that time.  More recently on his conditioning ready for his fight – some of you may have experienced a WoD or two with Tom and is virtually impossible to keep up with.  Tom has said that using CrossFit as a training aid has really helped him in his boxing.

A few of us are going along to support him.  If you would like to come please let me know so I can arrange tickets with Tom.  Tickets will be for all events throughout the night which start from 7pm.  We will find out on the day what time Tom is Fighting.  Unreserved Tickets are £30 and £15 for Students.

Good Luck from all at CFC Tom.

The first Open workout will be released on Thursday, Feb. 27. The fifth and final Open workout will be released five weeks later on Thursday, March 27.

We at CrossFit Chester will be holding 1 or 2 sessions per week where we will programme the workouts for the class, and if you sign up you will be allocated a Judge, who will verify your score.
