What does the training involve?
During your 8 week training our instructors will take you through stance, punching, movement and defensive techniques to help improve your skill level. You will be paired with someone of similar height and weight to begin developing those techniques further in a slow and controlled manner. Sparring usually comes towards the end of each class, where you will step through the ropes and try out the skills you have developed. Sparring is closely monitored by our instructors to avoid injury.
Can women join?
Ofcourse! We encourage everyone that wishes to develop their skills, get fit and have a go, to sign up.
What kit do I have to buy?
During your training you will need 16oz Boxing Gloves, Hand Wraps, Gum Shield and Head Guard. All kit needed is available from our club shop at a discount for Charity Boxers. On the night, F.I.T. Club will provide Head Guards, Gloves and Groin Protectors for the fight.
What will be expected of me?
You are expected to commit to 8 weeks of training, hitting at least one training class per week. You will also be expected to pay a £60 deposit which is returned after you sell 10 seated dinner tickets or 20 standing balcony tickets.
How will I be matched with an opponent?
You will train as a group for 8 weeks. At the end of the training you will be matched with somebody else from that group who is a similar weight, ability, fitness and age to you. We ensure the fairest matches possible at all of our events.
Can my company sponsor me?
If you have a company that would like to sponsor you they simply make a cheque payable to F.I.T. Club for £50.00. You will then be asked for their logo about two weeks before the event. Your chosen company will then have their logo printed in the event program and will be mentioned throughout the night.
What will the event be like?
The event will be well run and organised, with the medical provision the same as professional boxing. It will be a glamorous black tie event, and will make you feel like a superstar on the night. We hold our events at Newcastle Civic Centre which holds up to 600 guests.
Can I get extra training?
Yes. Additional training is available through our standard F.I.T. Club classes and Personal Training. Ask at the gym for more info.
