Swinford Boxing Club

Are you aged 50+? Want to get, or keep Fit whilst having Fun and learning how to Manage your Weight? Then we’ve got something to tell you…
Swinford Boxing Club is delighted to offer the first of many Training Programs specifically tailored to Groups in our community. In association with the Irish Athletic Boxing Association and the HSE, we present
“Fighting Fit”…

a FREE 8 week programme as part of our Healthy Boxing Bodies project.

Fighting Fit is a fun based boxing session for both WOMEN and MEN aged 50+. The sessions are based on fundamental body movements and manageable exercise for this specific group. This program helps with a changing body composition, aiding mobility, and helping you to keep muscle mass resulting in good body posture throughout life. It is a program that will help manage weight gains encountered as metabolism slows.

The Program will run initially on Monday evenings for a 2 month period beginning in May. In association with the HSE, the program will also include: a Health Risk Assessment, Nutritional Advice and a Health Seminar for all participants.

Places are limited to 15 participants and will be filled on a “first come, first served” basis. So if you are 50+, interested in your health, fitness and mobility, then contact us via swinfordboxingclub@gmail.com, via Facebook Messenger, or by contacting any member of Swinford Boxing Club now…
