|Boxing lessons are paid for per lesson and are also open to people who do not train at WBBA in our main programmes
Our boxing lessons are ideal to compliment your kickboxing training or as a completely separate discipline.
Strength, speed, reflexes and endurance are the basic principles behind our boxing program, if you think itís a sport for the rough and tough, you’re wrong.† Boxing is a excellent way to help you achieve that toned body if your willing to work hard.
What’s it all about?
Scrap any ideas you have about beating a punching bag by yourself, boxing is very much a social sport. Classes concentrate on pad work, cardio workouts and sparring. Students help each other
What can I expect at a class?
A typical class will start with a 10-minute warm-up, followed by about an hour and half of training †and finishing with a 10-minute warm-down. Classes will teach you how to punch properly ó it’s about technique not strength.
Don’t think that boxing is an easy ride though: it’s seriously hard work. Boxing is a high intensity, full body workout that will keep you moving the whole time. When you’re not throwing a punch, you’re ducking and weaving ó or doing squats and abdominal work.
What benefits will I see?
Weight loss, increased agility and coordination, muscle tone and greater fitness all result from boxing. Many people think that boxing is all about the arms but it is actually a cardio work-out for the whole body.
I’ve never boxed in my life. Will I be able to do it?
Boxing is all about technique so once you pick up the moves you should be fine. If you’re not particularly fit then that’s not a huge problem. Boxing is actually easier for a lot of people than running, especially for those with excess weight. †It ‘s not just a sport for the guys either; women actually pick up the combinations faster than men and can have more flexibility..
If it’s rapid toning and weight loss you’re after then boxing is something you should definitely check it out. It is quite a full on work-out though, and isn’t for everyone. Just go along to a taster class alone or with a partner and see what you think.
