Silvino Domingo: Given a Second Chance by Fight For Peace

Fitness professionals are a varied bunch, as we all know. Suzanne Wrack meets Silvino Domingo, who was supported to become a PT by Fight for Peace after an inauspicious start in life

Founded in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro in 2000, Fight for Peace (FFP) uses boxing and martial arts alongside education to engage and offer opportunities to disenfranchised people aged 25 and under.

It’s apt that I meet one of the organisation's biggest success stories in a place that represents opportunity, something that was missing from his area growing up

With a gym bag slung over his shoulder, 29-year-old PT Silvino Domingos unlocks the gates of the Fight for Peace building and lets us in. It’s clear this is a building going through change: new toilets and showers are being built to help encourage more young women to use the gym.

A boxing ring takes centre stage and behind it all, a labyrinth of training areas, back rooms and offices.
