Sheffield based professional boxer Adam Etches, aka the bomber, tasting success with support from caterers PJ Taste

 Adam Etches, promoted by the boxing legend Ricky Hatton, still remains unbeaten as he aims to bring back titles to his hometown of Sheffield. But, apart from the boxing, Adam’s active lifestyle and nutrition forms the backbone of his success in the sport. FunMeFit decided to catch up with Adam and find out more about his new partnership with local business P J taste.

PJ taste, based at 249 Glossop road Sheffield, know a thing or two about the importance of nutritious and healthy food. Best of all you don’t have to be a professional sports person to benefit from eating it with all the ingredients sourced locally.

PJ taste are providing Adam with a delicious range of wholesome foods to complement his high intensity training schedule, and to make sure his body recovers with the help of a balanced and carefully planned meal plan.

 

Adam said, “P J taste are providing me with meals throughout the week to allow me to concentrate on my training and boxing, which is fantastic. I generally pick up my freshly prepared food for the day from their shop. I’m really appreciative of the support they are giving me. I cannot emphasise the importance of eating ‘clean’ food – by that I mean balanced meals that provide essential nutrients that can benefit anyone, not just a boxer. It’s fantastic to have the support of local business”.

 

FunMeFit are working with Adam to follow his journey through the sport of boxing, and to help create awareness of his excellent work raising funds for Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity. Fulfilling his role as ambassador for the Charity, Adam hopes to raise vital funds by joining another boxer, Scott Jenkins and matchmaker Richard Poxon, to cycle the famous ‘La Mont Blanc’ – a gruelling 138km ride through the Italian Alps in July 2014.

We will feature more on Adam, and his challenge, however in the meantime if you would like to follow Adam’s meal plan with PJ taste there is a special blog at Adam Etches a week of nutritionally balanced meals – why not take a look.
