Fitness Trainer – Kent Brown
Kent is very proud of his First Nations (Ininiwak) roots; his family comes from Fisher River Cree Nation (Ochékiwi Sípí). Nicknamed ‘the Bullet’, Kent started boxing twenty-four years ago. In 2000, Kent became the Canadian National Champion and qualified for the Sydney Olympic Games, but was unable to go. In 2002, he won a gold medal at the North American Indigenous Games in Winnipeg. While growing up his hero was Muhammad Ali, and that is what drove his interest in the sport of boxing. Throughout his career Kent has had over a 120 bouts, winning 105 of his boxing matches.

Today Kent is the President of the Manitoba Amateur Boxing Association and a coach at the United Boxing Club with a full level three coaching certificate from the National Coaching Certification Program. He works out and trains youth to seniors in boxing and fitness at the club. In Kent’s training circuit his participants use everything from repetitions of lifting a sledgehammer, balancing on a spare tire while lifting weights to hundreds of sit-ups to get rid of the tummy bulge.

Kent completed his education at the University of Manitoba, and currently works for the Southern First Nations Child and Family Services Authority, as the Director of Human Resources.

Kent believes in melding both his First Nation Traditions along with his boxing background into his teaching methods. Respect is his number one rule and believes in teaching our youth & adults the values of our First Nations culture through sport. He is a tough trainer that knows personally what it takes to be the one of the best in the world and is able to pass that teaching onto his students in a passionate and caring way. He has a solid understanding of the human body, health and fitness. Kent currently coaches two Elite Canadian Amateur champions and one Junior Canadian Amateur champion, as well he successfully runs a recreational program for individuals that want to get healthy and learn the sweet science of living and training successfully.
