Bellingen Boxing Buddies

Bellingen Boxing Buddies is for people interested in participating in community-based free boxing drill training in Bello.
Sessions are held every Monday and Wednesday at the Connell Park Shed at 5.30 pm.
If you have your own boxing gloves/mitts and pads, that’s great. If not, I have two spare pairs of gloves/mitts and pads you can borrow.
If you are interested, please join the Facebook Group to keep in touch with what’s happening.
I find boxing drills great for physical and mental fitness (including stress relief). They’re also good fun and doing it outdoors is even better.
Hope to see you there!

The detail

There is no charge. I am not here to make money. I am not a qualified trainer. But I can pass on what I have been taught in other classes.
You can be any shape, sex, age or level of fitness and, a newbie or experienced. The programs I have work on speed, technique, power and stamina in drills over the hour.
You will work up a good sweat. These are trailing drills or “boxercise” type activity. There’s definitely no hitting the body of your partner as in a boxing bout.
A few things:
  • I don’t charge for this – it is a community service activity.
  • You train at your own risk.
  • Your own fitness and ability to train are your responsibility.
  • I am not a qualified fitness trainer.
  • I am not qualified in first aid.
  • In the event of an emergency, I will call 000 and or take you up the road to the hospital.
  • Please bring your own water and towel.
  • The toilets in the block are not open and the nearest loos are several hundred metres away.

Equipment

I have some gear to share. But, you might like to consider getting your own. There’s plenty of second-hand and new boxing gear on eBay and Gumtree. I have also seen kit in second-hand stores like Vinnies and the Salvos. If you want new stuff, Rebel in Coffs Harbour has a great range:

“Gloves” are used in boxing bouts, where you hit each other. “Mitts” are used in training. Mitts don’t have padding on the thumb. I use gloves. I like the padding on the thumb.

If you own gloves/mitts/pads. I recommend you get inner cotton gloves to absorb sweat (Link) as to avoid stinky gloves. I also recommend wrist support wraps (Link). You can also get knuckle protection and wrist wraps in the same unit (Link).
