Fight Klub® Clacton- Bag Box fitness class
In March 2017 Fight Klub® Clacton BAG BOX was launched in Clacton-on-Sea! A similar vibe and atmosphere to Drum ‘N’ Bass Workout Clacton, only you hit large freestanding bags with boxing gloves on, to WICKED drum and bass music!
I introduced my good friend Carrie to Fight Klub bag box a few years ago as I knew she’d love it as much as me. She fell in love with it the same as I did. I had tried to persuade every gym I worked in to get Bag Box there and Carrie decided SHE would bring it to Clacton. I am so blessed that she asked me to be an instructor for it on her behalf!
The classes are buzzing from start to finish. We warm up off of the bag and then do a round practising on the bag. After that I then teach some simple punches and the odd knee or kick in sequences. It’s repetitive enough for you to get the hang of it before it’s time to switch sides and start all over again.
The when, where, how:
Mondays at 18:30-19:30 at Holland-on-Sea Methodist Church, Kings Avenue, Holland-on-Sea, CO15 5EP
It’s the same venue as the Monday night Drum ‘N’ Bass Workout and directions can be found HERE
It costs £6.40 payable online ONLY at this link here or on the booking form below, you MUST book as there are limited spaces on the bags. You will need gloves but I have some there to borrow before you decide whether to buy your own. Fight Klub stock some amazing gloves among other merchandise HERE
PLEASE come and try this, there’s no other class like it!
Yes. You get out what you put in. If you have any problems with your upper body you needn’t strike the bag at all. There is always an alternative exercise to do. Of course you must always consult your GP if you’re taking up any new activity, especially if you have any medical conditions to consider.
The limit is 13 years old and above. 13 and 14 year olds must be accompanied by an adult aged 18 or over.
Something comfortable. Leggings/shorts and a loose T-shirt along with supportive trainers/pumps, women are advised to wear a supportive sports bra
You will need water, any medication you may have to take such as an asthma pump or glucose if you are diabetic and perhaps a towel. You will need gloves, there are a small number available to borrow at class but if you wish to attend regularly you’ll need your own for hygiene reasons, you can order some through me for just £20.00 or wear your own.
Yes, as long as you know your limits and it is safe for you to do so. You will take part completely at your own risk and must let me know prior to the class so that I can make adaptations for exercises necessary to keep your session safe and effective for you. If you have any problems with your upper body you needn’t strike the bag at all.
I get asked this a lot! NO YOU’RE NOT TOO FAT TO JOIN IN! As long as no medical professional has advised you stay clear from exercise, you are most welcome to join in. There are people of ALL ages, sizes, abilities at my classes and because I was overweight myself I make sure everyone feels welcome. There is absolutely no judgement at Fight Klub, the groups are all so kind to each other and we work hard to build one another up and give each other confidence!
Yes, as long as nobody under the age of 13 joins in the class, they are welcome to sit and wait while you do it but remain completely under your supervision and must be within your sight at all times.
Yes, no problem at all. As a courtesy please let me know you’re there to watch. What I will say though, is when you watch others (who bear in mind may have been attending for a few years) you will gauge the class based on THEIR exertion levels and not your own. You can work completely to your own ability so watching others can feel a little intimidating if no one turns up that week who is at your level. So I really do urge you to bite the bullet, be brave and come along because the group are so supportive and friendly they really will try their hardest to make you feel at ease and comfortable
You MUST book online
because is a set number of spaces on the bags and this class sells out very often. If it’s full and you turn up on the door you will not be allowed in for your own safety. If you do not book online, you will not receive any emails of last minute cancellations or changes in hall. I won’t spam your email- I only use it if I have to.
