Beginners course for women starts Tues 24 Sep

The next Women's Boxing Awards beginners course starts on the last Tuesday in September and runs over 8 sessions (break at half term if necessary). It's a great introduction to the boxing gym and a chance to learn some basics before launching into fitness classes or stepping into the ring.

What will you learn?
This course covers the basics of boxing and involves light fitness training.
  • How to stand, hold your guard and move your torso
  • Throwing straight punches to the head and body
  • How to defend against straight punches to the head and body
  • Moving around the ring
Each session begins with preparation for training; warming up, skipping, bodyweight exercise and drills.

You'll learn a new technique each week and drill it the following week so that at the end of the course, movement and punching is becoming more natural.

What's it good for?
  • Improving confidence and self esteem 
  • Increasing fitness and supporting weight loss
  • Stress busting
  • Enhancing body awareness and muscle function
  • Improving co-ordination

Who's it for?
Absolute beginners who have an interest in either competing in Amateur Boxing or those who want to benefit from the training, for fitness only. There's always a mixed group of varied abilities and ages, providing an all female, supportive environment.

How to book?

No further Box 4 Fitness Juniors sessions.

With the majority of our last group, reaching a size/ability to train with the seniors, I've decided not to take on any more juniors and to bring these Saturday morning sessions to an end.

With 2 very successful seasons under our belt at the Hebden Bridge Boxing Club, we've attracted a larger number of juniors at Club Training Times so it seems appropriate and of benefit to both the club and the individual to keep the talent within the boxing club.

Juniors and Seniors train together at the boxing club so there's always someone with more experience for the young people to learn from. There are usually 2, sometimes 4 Coaches in any one class so individual attention is given, even though the sessions are busier.

For juniors looking for more recreational sessions, Box 4 Fitness Tuesday night Circuits are open to those 12 and over (or under 12 if with an adult).

If you've been training with me as a junior and would like to discuss this more, please call or text me 077 3243 3243.
