Training at Boxing Works will help you not only reach your fitness goals but will teach you a skill set that you can take with you anywhere in the world and continue training.
Classes vary in intensity and skill level. Basic classes start with a warm up of stretching and skipping and progress into techniques. Classes also involve students working with a partner on the bags or with mitts, using punching and kicking combinations. More advanced classes involve high intensity pad and bag work and light-contact sparring drills.
Lunchtime classes (40 minutes) work on strength and endurance. They finish with a session of letting out aggression on the punch bags and abdominal work with the medicine balls. In the evening classes (from 45 to 60 minutes) you learn, perfect, and apply technique using pads and punch bags. At the end of the class you are encouraged to have an all-out bash on the bag (during which you can visualise a past boyfriend or girlfriend or your boss’ face – whichever works for you).
Many of the students at Boxing Works are women which is something we are proud of. Most begin training because they want to get fit, but many end up getting hooked on trying to perfect the art and skill of putting together a crisp seven punch combination.
You can wear normal work-out clothes and don’t need shoes.
