Craig Bellamy and Kerry Kayes

Given his tough reputation it’s probably no surprise that footballer Craig Bellamy is a martial arts fan. Now he’s opened Cardiff Combat, an MMA (mixed martial arts) gym in Allensbank Crescent, to give local youngsters and professionals a boost.

To help his members get the very best advice and training, Bellamy has been pulling in a few favours from his footballing connections and recently persuaded sports nutrition expert Kerry Kayes of CNP Professional to visit the gym. Bellamy first met Kayes when he was at Manchester City FC. The club is one of several in the Premier League that tap into Kayes’ expertise, so Bellamy already had plenty of experience of the CNP range of sports supplements.

Of course, Kayes is well known in the boxing and MMA worlds, too – he’s been responsible for sports nutrition for many top athletes, mixing with the likes of Rampage Jackson and famously helping Ricky Hatton shed the pounds and win world titles at the height of his career.

Kayes’ brief was to talk to gym members about incorporating proper nutrition into their diet and training schedule, in order to maximise their performance. He also brought along some very special guests in the shape of British and European champion John Murray, with brother and ex-Olympian Joe Murray and fellow boxer Anthony Crolla, plus UFC fighter Paul Kelly, all of whom spent time chatting to the Cardiff fight fans.

“Nutrition is vital for fighters in every discipline,” says Kayes. “They put their body through intense trauma, both training and competing, and need to recover quickly. One of the key areas to focus on is increasing protein intake, to aid muscle repair, but they’ve got to be the right sort of proteins – it’s worth paying extra for quality.”

Kerry Kayes has put together a package of sports supplements for athletes involved in combat sports. His ‘boxing stacks’ feature a selection of CNP products designed to help boost stamina, repair muscle and enhance performance. They are available from the CNP website,
