BOXING THROUGH THE MENOPAUSE

It’s time to unleash those punches and let the rage out! Boxing classes designed for peri and menopausal women.

HOT FLUSHES, SHARP PUNCHES CLASSES

Frustrated? Punching is THE best therapy! These boxing classes have been adapted to work with all the punches that perimenopause and menopause throw women’s way, helping to make that part of your life as enjoyable as it should be!

What does the Hot Flushes, Sharp Punches class consist of?

The class is split into 2 small groups of beginners, and more advanced. Everyone is taught the fundamentals of boxing in the sessions which include footwork, head movement, defence, and attack. We cover proper boxing technique drills to ensure each person’s boxing progresses, bag work as there is no better way to let out the rage! And a strength circuit at the end to look after the body and bones.

Why is boxing good for the body?

Exercise is good, boxing is better! Boxing is a great cardio workout for upping that heart rate, managing your weight, reducing hot flushes, boosting energy, and improving sleep quality. The strengthening element of the classes work the muscles and bones which is important for peri and menopausal women as oestrogen levels lower. The technical side of boxing will help improve your hand-eye co-ordination and balance.

Why is boxing good for the mind?

Boxing is a great way to switch off from the world, and solely focus on moving, punching, slipping, and rolling. Enjoying your boxing progress as the weeks turn to months is very rewarding. It’s also a lot of fun, with a great group of women, who will always lift your mood.
