About Us

We are a family run gym,  we like to feed ideas, defend dreams and develop passions.  Through training we have realised that the same dedication it takes to be good at a sport can be integrated into peoples lifestyle,  So far the results have been fascinating.



From complete novice to pro fighter,  from overweight to entering a bodybuilding competition, shy introvert to being on a stage, out of control with no real focus to a calm, determined, driven up and coming fighter,  couldn't run to entering marathons......The list goes on.  However, we know it all starts with three key sides.  Get these three right and the world is yours,  and it all starts the minute you enter Lions.


Your brain determines your success as much as your muscles.    Through physical activity, you can begin to understand yourself and how to get to be the best you can be, you will learn to use your intellect to help your brain help you.


What Are the Advantages of Being More Active? By becoming more active you can increase your body's fitness levels and also avoid health problems like diabetes and high blood pressure from developing. Exercise is also good for your joints and makes your body stronger overall.


The importance of nutrition and a balanced dietNutrition is vital for your body and all of its systems to function properly, by having good nutrition it will help you maintain a healthy weight, reduce body fat, provide your body with energy, promote good sleep, RECOVER QUICKER and generally make you feel better


We are proud to say we have grown Lions to a point where we now have 11 different instructors. From Boxing to Muay Thai, Core conditioning to Yoga, Functional Fitness and much more. We love being able to offer multiple different personalities, opinions and disciplines all under one roof. The one thing that we all have in common is the love of our art and teaching.


Our vision for the future is to continue to grow Lions through new students, more successes inside and outside the ring . With an intention of moving to bigger premises, offer more session with more variety. We plan on expanding the shows and the interclub and believe that we can make Watford a well-known place for Muay Thai and K1


However the true future we believe lays in working on community projects within Watford. We have always seen the importance of giving back to our local community and look to make Watford a better place by offering youth initiative schemes and charity events which we are looking to expand into other areas over the next few years

Final Thought

"I originally started training because a friend insisted I tagged along to a martial arts class that she wanted to attend. 15 years later i'm still in love with training, although im getting older my body is still improving in ability and look. My life has improved more than I could ever have imagined and all I needed to do get through the door on that first session"
