Lisa Whiteside, returned to the Larches and Savick Boxing Academy on Thursday to help deliver a women’s boxing course.
The course is free to all women and funded by Sportivate to encourage women into sport.
Lisa kicked off the course 6 weeks ago with a motivational talk about her career so far. Since then the ladies have been undergoing a structured course. She returned to the club on Thursday to put some of their new found skills to the test.
Afterwards Lisa said, “This has been a great revisit tonight to the ‘sportivate’ ladies boxing class. All the ladies worked so hard and I’m shattered after padding them all! They showed great technique and some powerful punches. It was a great turn out and a great work out.”
Participants commented “Working out with Lisa on the pads was amazing. Boxing is such a great way to improve your fitness”.
The course will run for a further 2 weeks and anyone is welcome whether they have been before or not. It will be held on Thursday 5th March and Thursday 12th March from 7-8pm. Everyone completing the course on the 12th will receive some goodies and a special offer to join the club.
