913: Twelve Minute Convos w/ Aidan Lee

My name is Aidan Lee, and I am the owner of FitRoots. I am extremely happy to be on this journey, and provide you (the community) with the best systems, tools, and guidance to reach your full potential. I have always been involved in health and fitness since a young age.

 

My first fascination with this world was my introduction to Martial Arts, which was pretty much as soon as I was born! My Dad – Dave Lee founded and run the successful Warlords Kickboxing Academy in Slough, back in the 1980s, right through to now. With this background, I couldn’t help but be involved in Martial Arts since day one. I started training properly when I was 5 years old, and have since amassed over 20 years of experience in the wide world of health and fitness.

 

I specialised in Kickboxing for a number of years, and still continue to train in the art. Having dedicated much time and effort to it, I managed to achieve my 1st Dan Black Belt at a young age. I also competed in various Kickboxing and K1 competitions since I was young, as I was always striving for that extra challenge. This not only made me a better competitor, but also a better coach and mentor to those who I have helped with their goals since.

 

Since then, I have branched out and learnt a huge amount from other Martial Arts such as Wing Chun, Muay Thai, Boxing, and MMA. I now constantly aim to learn as much as possible from whichever discipline I come across. With this broad approach in mind, I begun learning Yoga when I was 16, and found it so beneficial to my development, that I have stuck with it since! I now approach my own training with a balance that caters for mind and body, but also making sure I am a ‘better mover’ in general, and thus making sure quality Movement is the priority over aesthetics or anything else.

 

I now find myself trying out new things as often as possible. For example, recently attending a ballet class, then not long after a gymnastics session. Keeping an open mind with movement, health and fitness has been vital to my continual improvement.

 

Not everyone knows this, but studying Philosophy at University also gave me a renewed light on the ways we should approach our movement, health and fitness goals. Making rationale/solid reasoning a priority, this allows me to cut through the sheer amount of misinformation in this industry, and a lot of the FitRoots community appreciates this, as it is a refreshing approach.

I ensure to pass this experience and insight onto the FitRoots community – as my mission is to empower the community to embrace a fit and healthy, movement based lifestyle, whilst being a catalyst for transforming lives!
