Frequently Asked Questions
What will I learn?
Our beginner courses will introduce you to the foundational techniques of boxing. You will learn punches, defensive movement and footwork, all whilst developing your fitness, coordination & strength.
Our highly skilled instructors will ensure that each workout is different, challenging you both physically and mentally.
What happens after I finish the course?
After completing our Level 1 Beginner Boxing Course, students will progress onto Level 2, where they will be gradually introduced to light sparring and more advanced techniques, defensive movement and counter attacks.
Upon completion of Level 2, you will be able to attend all boxing classes at Paragon Gym. See our timetable for more details.
Do I need any equipment?
We have communal boxing gloves that you can borrow for the duration of the course, or if you prefer, you can purchase your own. We sell gloves and other boxing equipment at the gym.
If you sign up for the course, as an introductory offer for £50 you can buy a beginner bundle, which includes a pair of Paragon boxing gloves, hand wraps, and a t-shirt or vest. Alternatively, if you wish to purchase gloves elsewhere, we’re happy to give you guidance on what kind of gloves to buy.
How far can I go with my training?
It is entirely up to you how far you want to go with your training! Many of our students have gone on to compete at national and international level. However, there is never any pressure to compete.
If you have aspirations to step in the ring, after progressing to the advanced level, you can start your journey towards competing in boxing tournaments under the careful supervision of our coaches.
