Beginner's Boxing Course for Women

Get 2017 started with a BOOM!
Our first beginner's course for the new year starts on Tues Jan 17 at 7.30pm. It runs over  8 weeks and covers the very basics of boxing. Read more here.

So if you've been thinking about learning to box, or taking up boxing for fitness, take a look at what some others have said about our course, maybe they'll help you make up your mind?

Kate - a new Mum
I started at Box 4 Fitness with the beginner's course, 3 months after having my baby and I love it! The instructors are fantastic and I have enjoyed every minute. I highly recommend Kate and the team who are all supportive, knowledgeable and friendly. Keep up the good work! - Kate Aitchison, Rochdale

Jo - got her fitness and confidence back
I did the Level 1 boxing course because I found that you get a lot more out of the other boxing fitness classes as you're learning the techniques and rules of amateur boxing. Kate is an amazing coach and makes you go beyond what you think you can achieve and the women around you are so supportive. Your fitness levels improve massively, you feel strong and that's great for your confidence and self-esteem. I've recently completed the silver award: it was tough, challenging but so rewarding. I'm fitter, happier and healthier than I've been for years and met the best group of women ever. I'd say to anyone come down and have a go, get on the course; it really can be a life changer - Jo Ruane, Todmorden

Debra- boxing's best for stress relief
I completed the beginners course (Level 1) last year. I started as a complete novice to improve my fitness levels and to try something different. The basic skills I learnt enabled me to participate in many of the other boxing /fitness classes available. The instructors are motivating and good fun. You can work at your own level without feeling judged, and the members are friendly and welcoming.
The outlet boxing gives you after a day at the office should be referred to as a therapy! - Debra Priestley, Hebden Bridge

Iron Women - starts Wed 4 Jan

What's it all about?
Getting stronger, getting fitter and feeling more confident.

Over 12 weeks you will learn how to lift weight correctly, whether it's a barbell, dumbbell, kettlebell or your own bodyweight. This is a non-boxing session, we concentrate on good form, safe technique and building confidence.

What are the benefits?
  • You'll increase your overall strength
  • Improve your muscle tone
  • Gain confidence from feeling stronger and more capable
  • Learn new techniques and get fitter
  • You'll meet like-minded women and train in a supportive, all female atmosphere
Who's it for?
Any woman (16+) who wants to get stronger, improve her posture and learn how to lift.

How the sessions are run
Each week we focus on a few lifts/exercises and try to improve our 'PB' (Personal Best) on weight or number of repetitions in a given time. So it doesn't matter whether you can deadlift 20kg or 120kg - you're working to beat your score last time, not matching yourself against anyone else.

If you thrive on competition, you can make up a team and pace yourselves against each other, posting your results on the facebook group page.

What's the cost? 12 sessions for £55 or £60 if paying £5 per week over 12 weeks.

Booking Places are limited - If you'd like to reserve a spot or have any questions, text or call Kate 077 3243 3243.

UPDATE: (Jan 16)Please check our facebook page for cancellations as this course is currently full
