Meet Oriance “Ori” Lungu, Boxing & kickboxing coach
Ori is the co-founder of All Elite Boxing a fitness collaboration that prides itself in providing boxing and kickboxing, nutrition and sports rehabilitation services for both current and aspiring athletes in East London.
Before dedicating her work to All Elite Boxing, Ori obtained an undergraduate degree in Physics from Imperial College London and a masters in Geophysical Hazards at UCL (University College London). It was her interaction with a university careers counsellor who stressed the importance of finding “something to make you stand out” that Ori ventured into the realm of kick-boxing where her passion for the sport was ignited.
Since appreciating the importance of boxing Ori has sought to utilise the sport to support young people aged 11-16 who have been excluded from school, whilst also providing weekly boxing sessions for adults on the road to recovery from drugs and alcohol. Ori also provides corporate classes at WeWork.
With over 10 years of experience in the boxing, kick-boxing and fitness industry as both fitness coach and international competitor, Ori’s impressive journey began when she became the English Universities Series Winner which led to her joining Haringey Boxing Club where she achieved the title of 2x Haringey Box Cup Winner. Following this, Ori has represented England three times, gained a black belt in kick-boxing, became the National Novice Champion and more recently, gained the title of National Elite Champion 2019.
Ori’s passion for boxing is recognised by her devotion in coaching fitness enthusiasts keen to learn a new skill, ABA regional and national boxing champions and aspiring boxers and kickboxers alike.
Whether they be a complete novice or experienced competitor, Ori never fails to tailor boxing sessions to one’s ability with a focus on incorporating challenging yet rewarding techniques that bolster one’s own boxing development.
Ori wants to encourage boxing as a great form of fun as well as fitness. She believes it is a fantastic way of coping with issues life can throw at you, as well being a superb way of getting fit, healthy and making new friends.
Her courses are all-inclusive – whether you are an aspiring boxer or kickboxer, a fitness enthusiast looking to learn new skills, looking to improve your strength and stamina ahead of a marathon, or an ABA boxer, you’ll find that Ori has something to offer everyone – novice or pro.
So, are you keen to get involved in Ori’s future projects? Well, later on this year Ori will be running a greater number of boxing workshops for both novice and experienced athletes.
