Life Stories Episode #36: Danny Wilson

13 Views  •  9 Sep, 2021

Danny is a sports scientist, Strength & Conditioning coach and co founder at Boxing Science. He told me how he came to study sports science and why his interest in coaching came about. From working with amateur athletes, Danny saw an opportunity to offer specialist S&C to boxing athletes. His story is incredible in that he was charging £3.50 per athlete for his session and just a couple of years later was supporting Kell Brook in his super fight with Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin. Danny had formed a relationship with Dr Alan Ruddock whilst working at Sheffield Hallam University and this is where Boxing Science was formed. As well as training some of the UK’s highest profile athletes, they offer an online sports science consultancy and training subscription. Circumstances around lockdown saw Danny’s instagram following surge from 35,000 to over 150,000 as well as online subscriptions. This meant they could accelerate the creation of their purpose built Boxing Science centre in Barnsley. Part of Danny’s popularity on social media is his straight talking attitude and he certainly demonstrated this in our chat as he gave his frank views on boxing Great Manny Pacquiao drug testing. I could have spoken with Danny for hours regarding his opinion on past and present fighters, but this will have to wait for another day!
