No Black Eyes

Suitable for anyone who's new to boxing and wants to learn how to throw punches without getting hit. It's glove contact and focuses on the basics
  • How to stand and move around like a boxer
  • Throwing and defending straight punches
  • Hitting focus pads, bags and shadowboxing

Why Boxing?

Boxing's popularity as a route to fitness has increased amongst women over the past few years and for good reason. Boxers are some of the fittest athletes, they have lean, strong physiques and the training comes with a whole heap of benefits.

If you dislike team sports, boxing training is ideal, it's just you vs you but you get the support of a training partner.

Hitting focus pads or a bag is very therapeutic. It's a great way to channel aggression and leaves you feeling less angry, anxious or stressed out. Most people say boxing training gives them 
  • Increased self confidence
  • A stronger, fitter body
  • Improved mood and feeling of well-being

What next?

This course allows you to progress up 6 levels, to getting into the ring to box or you can stick with the beginner's levels and take the techniques you've learned to boxing fitness classes timetable here. We leave this up to the individual to decide.
