Get Fighting Fit For 2020 - Let's Kick That Winter Lethargy Into Touch!

Get Fighting Fit For 2020 - Let's Kick That Winter Lethargy Into Touch!

Hopefully, everyone’s enjoyed the Christmas and New Year celebrations with good food and drink, great company and some well-deserved relaxation and recuperation. But now’s the time to shake off those winter blues and kick start the new decade by joining our campaign to “Get Fighting Fit For 2020”!

And the clue’s in the name – Welcome Gym clubs are encouraging members to try something new, get into the combative spirit and join some of our group exercise classes that involve punching and kicking your way to fitness, including…

Classes involve a variety of moves and techniques, such as shadow boxing, skipping, hitting pads, kicking punch bags, press-ups, shuttle-runs and sit-ups. Usually accompanied by music, this and is a safe, fun and challenging way to get a good, all-over workout.

Box Fit
Get fit and fight the fat. Based on the training used for boxing, you use gloves, pads, bags and skipping work in a challenging, yet extremely enjoyable class, which increases your agility and works your abdominals, focusing on fitness and toning. Bring a partner with you for double the fun or make friends and find some sparring partners in the class. Classes usually include a warm up and a cool down and stretch.

Kick Fit
This is a fitness and cardio class, based on martial arts techniques, designed to burn calories, sharpen your reactions and improve your fitness.

Some of our clubs offer specialised martial arts classes like Taekwondo, Krav Maga or Piloxing , a non-stop cardio fusion of standing Pilates, boxing and dance that incorporates cutting edge research and fitness techniques to burn maximum calories, build lean muscles and increase stamina.

All Welcome Gyms include boxing facilities and equipment and some specialise in boxing. For example, Welcome Gym Sutton has a specific area for boxing and mixed martial arts that attracts beginners and professionals alike to do their own thing, as well as some great classes, including MMA Fitness, Boxing Circuits and Boxing Pad Work. Their boxing zone boasts 4 different boxing bags, a speedbag, Box Master and a variety of other equipment used in combat fitness. They also hold a Ladies Only Boxing class on Friday mornings in their Ladies Only gym, focusing on technique, pad work and conditioning. They're also planning to launch another exciting combat-related class in the New Year.

So, even if just now you’re feeling you couldn’t punch your way out of a paper bag, take yourself in hand and try one of our classes to get you fighting fit so that you can make the most out of 2020. You’ll feel energized, use muscles you never knew you had and kick and punch your frustrations into touch. You never know, you might get a real kick out of trying something new too!
