WHAT IS BOXERCISE?
Boxercise combines boxing and exercise in great fun, stress busting activity to suit everyone who wants to enjoy boxing training without getting hit or the elitism of some so called purists.
There are over 1.2 Million people in the UK taking Boxercise Classes or doing Boxercise with their Personal Trainer. Boxercise is one of the most effective forms of cross-training available today.
It combines use of both aerobic and anaerobic energy systems with the systematic recruitment of both fast and slow twitch muscle fibres in a manner that not only ensures a diverse workout, but also enhances sports specific senses, including hand-eye co-ordination, balance and timing.

BOXERCISE CLASSES ARE ALWAYS FUN, ENERGETIC AND ADDICTIVE
How is the Boxercise Class Structured?
Sessions vary from week to week to stop you from getting bored - and also to continue to challenge your body allowing you to burn fat and enhance your muscles.
Each week I may incorporate some of the following, Circuits, boxing coaching, and maybe some boxaerobics.
So one week I might be focusing on your technique and recapping the 8 punches, the next week I might be in FULL ON BEAST mode!
Each session will be designed to be FUN, a GREAT workout and ENERGETIC!
I recommend you complete the 6-week Beginners Boxercise Course to master the core Boxercise moves first.
"Boxercise is a really exciting and challenging workout, making you sweat off those pounds and get toned in one go!"
WHAT IS GROUP SPARRING?
Group Sparring is an exciting form of Boxercise which was developed by the Italian Boxing and Fitness Federation (IBFF). It is still really new in the UK and is so much fun you'll be torching calories and strengthening muscles before you can even say 'workout'.
Using the 8 punches you've already learned from the beginners Boxercise course you'll be working with your partner doing combat moves to music. It's like if dance and Boxercise had a baby!
This class is:
- To music - so it's lots of fun!
- Done with a partner
- Easy to do
- A great way of improving your technique
- Great for your cardio-vascular system
- Is suitable for all (once beginners course is complete)
- Can be varied in intensity - so as your fitness improves you can up your game!
Covid19 and Boxercise
All Boxercise sessions will strictly adhere to Covid19 rules laid out by both the Government and the bodies associated with Boxercise (Box Scotland and Sport Scotland).
We have been able to resume indoor classes since June - but I still recommend following social distancing guidelines within class, and all windows/doors are kept open to increase ventilation. But toilet facilities within the venues are limited.
All participants will be expected to stay away from class if they are experiencing Covid symptoms.
There will be limitations on how much padwork is allowed in each session.
I provide the pads and gloves for each participant to use each week. These are thoroughly washed and sanitised in between each session. In the future I hope to be able to rent out the equipment to you, with a refundable deposit, but at the moment I’m limited with the amount of gloves/pads I have! If you have your own you are more than welcome to bring them.
Swapping partners is now currently allowed - meaning we can have a lot more fun during the session, you also don't need a partner to attend sessions.
Social distancing of 1m is to be maintained throughout the session and unfortunately we can't 'hang around' to have a chat before or after the session.
Hand sanitiser will be provided for you to use and cotton gloves are available for you to borrow during the session (this helps to keep the gloves/pads less sweaty and stinky!) these will be immediately washed after the session (plus we all get to laugh at how we look like mime artists!).
