Christmas and New Year Closing

Closing for 2 weeks holiday

This year our last training session will be Speed Pads on Wed 21 Dec at 6.15pm - special edition with knockout Christmas beats to throw those killer combinations to!

We re-open on Wed 04 Jan 2017 with Boxercise (Beginners session) at 10.15am and the first in our series of Iron Women training sessions at 6.15pm.

It's good to take a break from hard training every few months and re-feed, relax and enjoy the company of your friends and family. Some brisk walking or running will blow the cobwebs away and keep your legs in check for the New Year.

It's been a brilliant year at the gym, some of you have come a really long way with your fitness and improving your health. I look forward to more of this next year.

Speed pads - course starts Nov 9

Speed Pads is back for 2016

We have only 6 training Wednesdays left of this year and we're going to spend them doing this!

This guy Adam, uses the same principles as we do to deliver the punching system.

I can't promise you'll be as fast as Azizah is 6 weeks but you'll have a lot of fun learning it and improve your coordination and reaction time too.

Open to absolute beginners
Well loved and enjoyed by so many at the gym, this speed pads course is open to beginners as well as those who've done it before.

The combinations are broken down to just a few moves initially and built up week by week at a pace that you can manage.

If you've already done some speed pads then we've got new material for you!

Cost and dates
£25 for 6 sessions if bought together or £5 per class drop-in.
The course runs every Wed between Nov 9 and Dec 21, 6.15-7.15pm

No Boxercise Fri 4 Nov


Just for this week, we're closing the gym on Friday morning so there's no Boxercise.
Back to business as usual on Saturday 5 Nov with KO Circuits at 10am and 
Women and Girls in the ring at 11am.

Regular Friday Boxercisers may like to meet up at the gym and go for a run along the canal or up to the tops? It's a great time of year to enjoy outdoor running.

Boxercise on as usual next week, Fri 11 Nov.

NO BOOTCAMP tonight Mon 10th October

Unfortunately I'm unwell so can't run the session tonight and I've not been able to get cover so Bootcamp is cancelled. I'm hoping to be back in the gym tomorrow and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause anyone.

Every Monday (over 50's), Wednesday and Friday morning we get the gloves on for Boxercise at the gym timetable here.

It's a non-contact training session using focus pads and gloves to throw punches and combinations in a stress busting workout you'll find hard to beat.

Fighting fit fifties
Monday's are a mixed session (men and women), specifically for over 50's (or thereabouts) with a low impact workout and modifications for various levels of fitness and ability.

A social class with plenty of laughter and support from fellow Boxercisers.

Women's Boxercise
Wednesdays and Fridays are a mixture of padwork, bagwork, plenty of strength and conditioning and cardio too. The format changes every session so it's never boring, you'll find time flies once you get into a few rounds of punching.

We promote a supportive and friendly atmosphere (women only in these sessions) that you will find different to any other regular gym.

You're first session is free so if you fancy trying it out, email
All Boxercise sessions are drop in and are £5 or £35 for 8.
