Preparing to Box

This module covers everything from running boxing specific warm-up drills through to the various pieces of equipment used for boxing and pad work exercise. You’ll also learn about different types of guards, stances and footwork employed by boxers. 

Punch and Pad Work Techniques

This practical session introduces the correct techniques for six basic punches and the appropriate pad work for each. It also covers the development of punch combinations and how to encourage your clients to develop their own combinations.

Conditioning Drills

This practical module will teach you how to deliver a range of different drills employing boxing techniques and pad work, utilising a range of equipment introduced in previous modules.

CPD Fitness courses are assessed through an observed assessment on the day of attendance. You will need to demonstrate your skill and competence in front of a qualified teacher and assessor who will lead your training.
