Due to the high applicants we only allow boxers to attend bonus sessions at their chosen boxing gym. There are over 100 free bonus sessions within the 10 weeks to choose from!
If I am away for some of the core sessions am I still able to take part?
If you are new to boxing we recommend that you attend as many core sessions as possible. However missing a few will not stop you participating. Attend as many of the extra bonus classes as you can to catch up or to simply increase your skill level.

If you wish to attend other gyms and train with your own personal trainers that is fine! However we will need to see you at all sparring sessions and to attend as many core sessions as possible. This way we can match you up fairly
