Boxfit & Running Wednesdays
A new Boxfit fitness session is now on Wednesdays at 1930 – 2045.
Non contact boxing related fitness.
EBC Coach Paul Senior will run the Boxfit sessions.
We also do structured running sessions that are free of charge every Wednesday evening from the pier at 8pm.
No questions that these sessions WILL BE TOUGH!
The new season is underway.
Already session numbers are good, but members keep spreading the word and encouraging friends, family and peers to try out our amazing sport for fun, fitness and competitive opportunities.
Over the summer, EBC women’s sessions continued but away from the gym. Training took place on the seafront at a variety of locations. Sessions were tough using the natural environment and resources to increase fitness levels and develop their boxing skills. For more information visit their Facebook site here.
The women’s dedicated sessions run on a Tuesday evening from 6.30pm until 7.30pm with a range of activities to break you into a continuous sweat.
EBC continues to work with local school, clubs and organisations in delivering a successful alternative programme to a variety of people and ages. Paul Senior, Assistant Head teacher within the SABDEN Multi Academy Trust ‘the young people engage extremely well with the coaching team at the club, the facilities are great and progress the students make excellent’. Paul added that the students from one of the schools actually choose a Friday afternoon boxing session in response to their positive engagement ‘even though they know that the session is going to be, as one young person put it ‘BRUTAL’.
England Boxing Level 1 courses
Eastbourne Boxing Club coaches Adam Haniver and Paul Senior continue to deliver L1 coaching courses as Coach Educators for England Boxing both at the club and across the country when required.
A recent successful L1 course at the club
EBC is now a 2 ringed gym!
Great news for the club! We now have 2 rings to work in. Part of the club was left as more of a store area, but with a tinker here and there, we were able to add a new ring in (see photo).
This will allow us to have 2 sets of open and conditioned spars going on at once whilst leaving the floor for the usual tech spars etc etc. In turn this will allow us to maximize our sessions and keep the boxers on a straighter line towards their individual goals.
With the current office, changing rooms and toilet renovations going on with our club sponsor Matthew Budd of Matthew Budd Carpentry and Building Services the club is rapidly moving forward in all directions. Thank you also to Jason Puttick of our other club sponsors, Accurate Roofing for delivering the ring to the club.
The future’s bright, the future is (cliché) EBC.
