Frequently Asked Questions
I’ve a bit nervous, I’ve never boxed before!
You’re not alone, so many people are secretly a little nervous and a little bit anxious the first time. Most of our member’s started training having never stepped into a boxing gym before. Our coaches are friendly, our members are friendly and everyone’s more than happy to help you out.
I’m not very fit, will I last the session?!
The best way to get fit is join in and gradually build yourself up, session by session and week by week. Work your pace to start with, take a break when you need one and watch your fitness improve.
Can women train?
Of course, there’s always several women in the class training together or pairing up with the guys. Our classes are all-inclusive.
What equipment do I need?
To start with, you gym clothing (shorts, t-shirt and a drink). We’ve boxing gloves you can borrow and in a few weeks time consider buying your own gloves and hand wraps. If you want to spar you definitely need a gum shield.
Where can I buy equipment?
In the beginning, just borrow ours. When it comes to gloves we can advise you on the best size and style, you can check out our shop or order then online. As for gum-shield’s – the best ones are from the dentist or you can pick them up from most sports shops and websites.
Will I get hit? Do I have to spar?
You’ll work on new techniques with a partner which is lighter-than-light contact so you won’t get hurt. As for sparring, it’s 100% optional so once you have the basics under your belt you might decide to get involved.
Any advice for a 1st timer?
Don’t kill yourself in the first session! Come along, go with the flow and just enjoy the class. You’ll get fitter, and technically better, week by week.
Consistency is the secret to success, and maybe start to eat a little better. Real foods you have to cook yourself from scratch. You’ll feel better and look better too.
