The BOX Instructor Training Course

BOX Instructors are qualified to deliver fun fitness sessions incorporating Olympic-style boxing techniques.

The Instructor course is suitable for fitness instructors, teachers and community leaders.

What will I learn?

By the end of the course, candidates will be able to:

1. Deliver a boxing-specific warm-up and cool-down

2. Instruct foundation techniques for Olympic-style boxing

“The course was very good as you learnt the technical side in real depth. I feel that I would be able to teach somebody how to box efficiently and progress them.”
