Join Boxing for Health with SLH and Gemini Boxing Club

Published: 2May 2021 

This June, SLH is partnering with Liverpool City Council (LCC) 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 have spent more time at home than we might like over the last year 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.  

If you want to improve both your physical and mental health, it’s the perfect time to jump into action. The project begins on Friday 4 June and there are 20 places available. Each slot will be filled on a first come, first-serve basis. The sessions will be run by two qualified and experienced trainers, each Friday over the course of 12 weeks from 12-1pm. 

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 a one-hour session each week will get your heart pumping, strengthen your muscles and bones encouraging body strength, weight loss and it's a great way to de-stress.  

Fit For Me campaign 

The programme is in collaboration with LCC’s exercise and wellbeing campaign, Fit For Me, which aims to inspire people in Liverpool to be more physically active. Fit for Me is for everyone - it doesn’t matter what shape, size or age you are, whether you’ve been active in the past or if you’re an absolute beginner. However fit, or unfit, you may be, being active is something that can help us all feel good. 

If you would like to join the 12-week programme, email getinvolved@southliverpoolhomes.co.uk.
