About Drew

Drew Neal is a former world kickboxing champion and renowned international fitness trainer. With over three decades of experience training himself and two decades of training other people, he is a trusted coach of numerous celebrities, professional athletes, politicians and top CEO’s.

Originally from the UK, now based in India, Drew is known for his methodical and no-nonsense approach to fitness training. His skill set has helped to facilitate success on the silver screen and international podiums and has also been the reason for many other life changing transformations and breakthroughs.

Growing up in a small town in England, Drew found his calling in martial arts at the age of five. It was evident that he was not a natural athlete but with the support of his parents combined with sheer hard work and determination, he soon became a champion. In 2003 he realised his lifelong dream of becoming the WAKO World Kickboxing Champion – a feat which he managed to repeat twice more over the span of a decade.

As a teenager, Drew was totally consumed by training and pushing his mind and body to extreme limits. It was inevitable that his chosen profession would be in the field of fitness coaching. In 1998, he landed his first coaching job in a local fitness centre where he started to hone his craft further, guiding anyone who needed help and passing every qualification that he applied for.

In 2007, Drew opened the doors to The Lighthouse Kickboxing School, a place that would transform hundreds of lives. Children as young as five and adults in their seventies became captivated by Drew’s passion for fitness and the Martial Arts. With Drew behind them, they were guided on their own individual and unique journeys. Some became national and international champions, some achieved their black belts and some gained confidence that would stay with them for the rest of their lives.

After his life in the UK, impacting the lives of numerous athletes and fitness enthusiasts and competing and teaching worldwide, Drew took the bold move to relocate to India in 2014. Here, he began to impact a population that he hadn’t reached before.

Today, Drew has over 40,000 hours of coaching experience and has worked with thousands of people across the globe. Since he moved to India, Drew has chosen to work exclusively with a handful of clients to ensure that he is able to deliver his best possible service.

Drew’s message

The journey of fitness for me has been the largest contributing factor to the man I am today. I owemuch of my success to the lessons taught to me through exercise. The physical impacts of exercise are well documented but for me the mental fortitude that is developed is an even more desirable side affect. I do not believe I am overstating things when I say that a life without fitness is a life that hasn’t been fully lived.

I am super excited to use this platform to share my knowledge and impact your fitness journey in the most insightful and positive way

yours in health and fitness

Always been into training myself, in fact when I was 5 years old my journey began in Karate and have trained ever since. Because of my chosen sport, kickboxing, fitness was just a way of life and I gained so many wonderful experiences that it was inevitable I would make a career from sport and coaching.

In 1998 I started personal training and i shifted from a variety of different gyms working as both a trainer and often as a manager while still heavily competing and teaching seminars all over the world. By the time I retired from fighting I had my own gym and kickboxing school where I coached my own students and was selected as the national WAKO Kickboxing coach where I produced many champions, both nationally and internationally.

What made you to head to India? While working at my gym I was asked a number of times to travel to India to train various actors. This wasn’t really something that I saw myself doing so kept saying no. Then I began to wonder why I was being asked and maybe I should explore the idea. So an opportunity came about where I would train a new actor for his debut movie. The contract was for 3 months and yet 5 years on I am still here.

Fitness is always evolving so everyone in the world will always be playing catch up with the latest trends and research. The knowledge and awareness in India in the amount of time that I have been here has increased dramatically. There is of course a way to go and this is the case across the world but I am super excited to be in a country where people are becoming more and more passionate about fitness and a variety of different sports.

Supplements are just that, they supplement someone nutritional intake if there are any deficiencies. Of course there are benefits to some supplements and a necessity also, but one thing I can say with certainty is there is too much focus on supplementation and people looking for shirt cuts that don’t truly exist.

If it’s anything the last 5 years then I see an influx in good quality and knowledgeable trainers who in turn will be helping a far reaching audience. More and more gyms will inevitable crop up but I think the trainers inside the gyms will become more and more of an asset to the gyms success. I think gyms that invest more in their trainers education rather than the gym equipment will stand the tests of time here in India.

Simply they must live and breathe what they do and of course love it. I fear that being a trainer can look very glamorous and exciting but the truth of it is, it’s a hard work. It is such a profession where you only truly get good at your craft after years and years of experience, making mistakes and educating yourself.

I am a firm believer in continually educating and evolving with the fitness industry. That’s not to say every fad and trend should be followed and changed when the next one comes, but it is important to see how the market is developing and only opt to using training methods which resonates with the trainers core philosophies and beliefs.

I often use the joke stating that there is a real motivation to be fit in combat sports because if you don’t you will get hit in the face. But joking aside I have first hand experience with how combat sports can help with individuals fitness goals. All angles are covered and more often than not people don’t necessarily want to get in the ring and fight but the diverse and fun element of learning fight skills really attractive.

As I have previously said, that the profession of personal training can look attractive for whatever reason that is for individuals, the salary, the look, the non-conventional working hours. But also I think people are seeing that fitness is becoming a daily habit for more and more people and this of course means more clients so much more opportunity in an evolving industry.
