Boxing


Our boxing classes are run by State, National & Commonwealth Boxing champion Mick O’Malley, or by one of our instructors who has been taught and skilled by Mick. Technique is a huge emphasis in our boxing training for both injury prevention and intensity, and we pride ourselves on this instruction.

Boxing training is very beneficial for both men and women of all ages. Training sessions stimulate all muscle groups and provide the perfect combination of aerobic (with oxygen) and anaerobic (without oxygen) exercise. As well as a complete physical workout, boxing stimulates the mind. As a level one Boxing Trainer and with access to some of the region's best boxing gymnasiums come and see for yourself just how much fun boxing can be!

Boxing Classes

Boxing is a high intensity full-body workout that will make you physically stronger as well as aerobically and an-aerobically fitter. It is a complete workout for your cardiovascular and endurance systems as well as training upper body, lower body and core strength. Calorie expenditure and fat burning are elevated during boxing as it is such a high intensity workout utilising large muscle groups and constantly keeps you moving. Boxing does not tend to add muscle bulk, rather adding tone and defining muscles because it involves such high repetitions. Boxing is a workout that can accommodate for all levels of strength and fitness and can be enjoyed by beginner to advanced participants. Drills can easily be modified to increase or decrease intensity and complexity of the workout.
