Having gone pro in 2015, earning such titles as Provincial Boxing Champion and National Boxing Champion more than once during his career has bolstered his competitive resume. He has trained and fought in venues across the world, which has helped build and diversify his fighting technique. He has also trained multiple clients who have competed and won amateur boxing matches.

 

Between his intense training and competing schedule, Kane has worked as a personal trainer and boxing instructor at HUF Gym on and off since 2014. In addition to being a licensed professional boxer, he has studied anatomy and designed countless fitness training programs to help HUF Gym clients meet their weight loss and strength conditioning goals.

 

Kane is also committed to serving his community. In addition to volunteering as a counsellor at a non-profit kids summer sports camp for six years, he has had the rewarding experience of teaching boxing at a school for hearing-impaired children.

At just 13 years old, she began to take boxing seriously and trained vigorously with her uncle (HUF Gym co-owner Andrew Heron) to prepare for her first competition less than one year later.

 

Balancing remarkable dexterity with natural instinct, Faith has proven that champions are not limited by age. In fact, she achieved the above-listed accolades all before the age of 20 and victoriously fought her way through the novice and intermediate classes, upgrading to open class after just six fights.

Since 2017, Faith has coached and inspired a great number of children and adolescents to reach towards high goals and realize their potential. In addition to facilitating HUF Gym’s Young Heroes Program, she teaches co-ed boxing classes and provides personal training to women of all ages and children from ages four to 15.
