Combining the Best of Kickboxing & Martial Arts For The Ultimate In Physical & Mental Training
“It is better to be a warrior in a garden, than a gardener in a war.” — Chinese Proverb
FitRoots Martial Arts School specialises in teaching our community of students the art of Kickboxing. We can teach you over 40 years’ worth of experience, as our origins are from Dave Lee's Warlords Kickboxing Academy. Come and learn from the best, to be the best yourself.
FitRoots Martial Arts School encompasses the elements of Kickboxing, Boxing, Karate, Muay Thai, Wing Chun, and MMA.
We have found that no one Martial Art, is superior to the other, and as it is said; it is you, the practitioner, and what you make of the art which is more important.
While it may seem that our programme combines many aggressive, or ‘hard’ forms of Martial Arts, we focus equally on the internal, or ‘soft’ forms of Martial Arts too. We teach you how to breathe correctly, and take practices from the internal and soft arts, like Qigong, and Tai Chi.
Our classes encompass different age groups, experience and ability, yet everyone comes together to train, and achieve success as a team. The FitRoots community is essential to our success. We are a selective Martial Arts School, and choose professional business men and women who are interested in transforming their bodies, nurturing their mind, and their spirit.
By helping you to adjust your outlook on life, centre your mind, fuel your body in the right way, and teach you ancient Eastern and Western philosophies, we can improve your success at work, and at home.
Classes are one hour long and consist of:
Although classes are an hour long, we do not shut the lights and start locking up when it’s time. We are happy to stay as long as you want, to ensure you leave each class feeling like you have achieved something, had your questions answered, had fun, and feel fulfilled in your training.
Join our elite tribe of Kickboxing Warriors in Slough.
We look forward to welcoming you into our classes as one of our new students!

"FitRoots is incredible. It's easy to think you're in a good position until someone helps you realise your potential and FitRoots has done exactly that for me. Physically and mentally, I am in the shape of my life and enjoying life more than ever, and I have FitRoots to thank for that. Through Kickboxing my skills and techniques have improved massively. My strength, speed, timing, reactions, power, coordination, stamina, and balance have all greatly increased, with FitRoots being the source of this success. FitRoots has also helped with advice and opportunities when it came to starting my own business, and for that I am forever thankful. I would recommend FitRoots to anyone, and would fight the case as to why he's the best around."

"Big shout out to Aidan and FitRoots, for providing the foundation for our son's love for Kickboxing. Aidan is a patient, caring and understanding Sensei, who skilfully nurtured our son's journey in the world of Martial Arts. Thanks also to Sensei Dave Lee for his wise words of encouragement. The environment and team spirit within FitRoots is recommended to anyone passionate about health, fitness and self-defence."
Martial Arts Student
"Aidan is a great Kickboxing coach. I have been training with him for a couple months now and I have made a lot of improvements, due to his attention to detail, as well as him wanting to see you get the best results.
Aidan's knowledge extends wider than Kickboxing such as Strength Training, Nutrition, Philosophy, and Functional Movement; so, if you are looking to make a difference in your health and fitness, make sure to give him a call."
Martial Arts Student
"What Aidan brings to the table is so much more than just "Personal Training", or “Martial Arts”. The idea behind it being holistic personal training, combining the beneficial qualities of Functional Movement, Martial Arts, Functional Strength and Conditioning Training, and healthy eating to promote a healthy body, and a healthy mind I think is revolutionary. It makes so much more sense to combine the aspects FitRoots focuses on, into one to reap the individual benefits of each aspect in one session. I would highly recommend for any personal development goals you have whether that's losing weight, aesthetics, or even educating yourself on the importance of eating and training smart. Aidan offers so much more than your average gym Personal Trainer or Class Instructor, I guarantee you will feel far better after a session at FitRoots than any gym! Fantastic place!"

Frequently Asked Questions
How do the gradings work?
Gradings occur based on individual ability and effort with maximum gradings capped at twice per year per person. The gradings will comprise not only on the physical but also the philosophical, anatomical and biomechanical elements which will become progressively harder. You will have to study and learn from Philosophy, Mind-set based readings and exercises to understand the discipline of Martial Arts.
How long are classes?
Each class is 1 hour long. We start precisely on time, so please ensure you arrive nice and early, so you can enjoy your experience, and get the most out of your time training with us.
How many people are in a group class?
Class numbers range from 5 – 30. When we have larger classes, we have more instructors to ensure there is a consistent, and enjoyable learning experience for you.
Do I need to ‘get in shape’ or ‘get fit’ before I start your classes?
A common misconception is that you must be fit and in shape, before starting your classes here at FitRoots. This is completely false. All our classes are designed so that our students can train at their own pace, whilst giving those students who are ready to push themselves, the chance to do so.
Will you help me with my nutrition?
Yes, we have a range of nutritional resources, including recipe videos, our signature principles, the psychology behind healthy eating, how to structure your meals, kitchen, workplace, your social circles and much more. We believe in a wholesome approach to training, so you will get great results when combining your new nutritional habits, with your new training experience.
Which class is best for me?
Simply call the phone number on our website, and our head instructor Aidan Lee, will be happy to assist you with a quick consultation. This will help you choose what the best class is, depending on your goals, and schedule.
Do you have students participating in Kickboxing competitions? Can I compete too?
We do indeed. We have students from various levels, from first time competitors, to seasoned professionals. Should you wish to do so, you will be more than welcome to compete, but only by our approval. You must reach a certain standard, and commit to a proper training programme, so you can represent the best version of yourself, and our Martial Arts School.
What is the level of physical contact?
If you are a beginner, the level of physical contact will be very minimal, and you certainly won’t be doing Sparring (controlled live contact offence and defence) straight away. When you have learnt the foundational techniques, ethics, and reach a certain level of competency, you will be allowed to do Sparring, should you wish to. For those who have done Martial Arts training before, and wish to proceed quicker, you may do Sparring sooner, providing you have all the necessary equipment, and competency.
What days and class times are available?
Currently, we have 3 classes every week:
Monday & Wednesday: 19:00 – 20:00
Saturday: 09:00 – 10:00
How different are the Personal Training services to the Martial Arts School?
You will receive the same resources and guidance in our Martial Arts School, that we are able to give to our 1-1 Personal Training students. We will help you in all aspects of health and wellbeing that are required, and if you feel there is something unique that you need, we will help you in whatever way we can
Do you offer Group and Private classes?
Yes, we offer both types of classes, and other services, depending on your needs, and instructor availability.
Will there be other beginners in my class?
Absolutely. There are always beginners in each class. The advanced students were beginners at one point too, and they are keen, and encouraged to help beginners be the best they can be.
How many classes per week should I attend?
We currently have classes 3 days a week, and the number of classes you take, will depend on your goals, and your schedule. We recommend that you train more, to achieve your goals faster, and more efficiently. Most of our students train at least twice a week, and get great results from more training.
Will your classes help me tone up?
Definitely. Our classes provide a functional form of training, which will train your whole body as one synchronised unit, and allow you to burn fat from head to toe. In combination with our help to change your sleep, stress, nutrition, training, and other lifestyle habits, you will exceed your goals.
How many instructors are there per class?
Most of our classes have 2 instructors each. We have a community of advanced students who are also more than happy to give you a helping hand, as they were once in your shoes. At FitRoots, we will always endeavour to add more instructors when and where they are required, to ensure you get the best student service possible.
What equipment do I need?
When you first start, all you need is yourself, comfortable sports clothing (t-shirt and shorts/tracksuit bottoms/leggings) you can punch and kick in, a towel, and plenty of water to keep you hydrated, when you are working hard. Later, when you decide FitRoots Kickboxing is for you, we can advise you on the best equipment you will need to continue your journey.
