Join the Boxing for Health project with SLH and Gemini Boxing Club

Published: 14 December 2020

In January, SLH is partnering with Liverpool City Council and Gemini Boxing Club in Speke to launch a 12-week project, called Boxing for Health to encourage local people to invest in their physical and mental health.

Lots of us are spending more time at home than we might like at the moment and staying physically active has never been more important. To combat this, South Liverpool Homes will partner with LCC and Gemini Boxing Club to launch a 12-week boxing fitness project for local people in the new year.

If you want to improve both your physical and mental health, the new year is the perfect time to jump into action. The project begins on Tuesday 19 January and there are 20 places available. Each slot will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

The health benefits of boxing

Boxing is a fantastic exercise for many and can be tailored to suit all abilities. The weekly sessions will be aimed at beginners of the sport, encouraging local people to increase their activity levels and try something new.

There are many physical health benefits of weekly exercise. Boxing is great for men and women alike and participating in a one-hour session each week can improve cardiovascular health and body strength, encouraging weight loss and reduce stress levels.

About the project

The sessions will be run by two qualified and experienced trainers, each Tuesday over the course of the 12 weeks from 12.30-1.30pm.

Following the weekly training session, participants will be given the opportunity to join a peer support group, if they wish.

The aim of the group is to provide participants with a forum to discuss how they are progressing and raise any concerns. The peer support sessions will also provide the group with the opportunity to give feedback on how the course is being run and whether they have any recommendations.

Fit For Me partners

The programme is in collaboration with Liverpool City Council’s exercise and wellbeing campaign, Fit For Me which encourages everyone in the city to be more active.

If you would like to join the 12-week programme, email Thomas Hayes, our Health and Wellbeing Officer on thomas.hayes@southliverpoolhomes.co.uk.
