We firmly believe everyone deserves a place in our community regardless of background or ability.


At GUBC, we offer a variety of training sessions to cater to different aspects of boxing. Our training program includes the following:

  • BoxFit is a fitness-focused session that combines circuits, bodyweight exercises, weighted training, skipping, pad work, and ladder drills. These sessions are designed to improve overall fitness and stamina.
  • Technique sessions are dedicated to enhancing and refining your boxing skills. We focus on footwork, combinations, defence, and improving overall technique.
  • Sparring sessions: Experience the thrill of the ring and put your skills to the test in our sparring sessions. These sessions provide invaluable practice and help you improve your performance inside the ropes.

Join us for these diverse training sessions and develop your boxing skills while improving your fitness and confidence in the ring.
