Max Freyne

Edinburgh, UK

I am an exercise enthusiast, a Combat sports athlete, champion and coach as well as a compassionate, emotionally intelligent individual who always has his clients leaving each session knowing they have improved upon some aspect of themselves. I have been all over the world competing and teaching in various martial arts including: Freestyle Wrestling, Scottish Backhold Wrestling, Brazilian Jiu jitsu, Judo, kickboxing, Muay Thai, Boxing and Mixed Martial arts. I bring something different that other coaches cannot bring to each session, no one has the same kind of experience that I do having worked with people who are elderly, as young as 4 years old, very wealthy and then also with people who come from the favelas in Brazil.

HND in Health, Fitness and Exercise YMCA PT level 3 Qualified Backhold Wrestling/Combat Sports coach

Scottish National Freestyle Champion (-74kg) 2nd in Europe at Celtic Wrestling (-21 years) Scottish National Universities Judo Champion (-81kg, Kyu grade) Icelandic Backhold Wrestling Champion (-81kg) I once spent 3 months living in a gym in Brazil to prepare for a fight in a cage in Rio De Janiero. I have taken a train around europe for a month sleeping on the mats of martial arts gyms in order to train with some of the worlds best martial artists across the continent.

English, a little bit of Brazilian Portuguese and a small amount of German.

"“I Will Never Stop Wrestling” - for me this quote (and wrestling in general) is a metaphor for resilience and perseverance in life. "
