If you have seen us boxing at Everybodys and thought….maybe i would like to give that a go…. now is your opportunity.

In a world with a growing sense of self-awareness and focus on personal health and fitness, many people are beginning to turn to unconventional workout methodologies.

Boxing, as a sport and as a martial art, has been around for centuries. People throughout history have practiced it as a means of self-defense. But more recently over the past decade or so, boxing has emerged as a popular workout.

People are drawn to boxing as a workout because it’s fun and enjoyable, and because it promises drastic improvements to overall health and wellness. For those looking to lose weight and get fit, boxing is just absolutely incredible.

Want to know how boxing can help get you into the best shape of your life? Check out these four points.

1) It’s an intense cardio workout
Everyone knows cardio is the way to go if you want to lose copious amounts of weight. But simply sweating it out on a treadmill can get super repetitive and very boring. No one wants to spend hours on end just doing the same exact thing. While steady-state cardio can definitely help you burn calories and shave off that excess weight, it’s very hard to keep up because it can get stale after a while.

Enter boxing, the ultimate cardio workout that will engage both your upper and lower body.

Boxing trains cardiovascular strength and endurance more effectively than the majority of the workouts available today. It has the power to condition the human body into an energy-efficient machine.

2) It engages the whole body
Contrary to popular belief, boxing isn’t just about punching. It’s so much more than that. There’s head movement and footwork, defensive techniques such as bobbing and weaving, as well as workouts to develop power and speed. More importantly, boxing is a full-body workout as it engages the entire upper and lower body.

Boxing workouts allow you to stimulate muscle fibers that you have never used before. Which is why after training for a while, you will discover strength and explosion you never had before. This is because most of the muscles used in boxing workouts are fast twitch muscle fibers that are often neglected in traditional workouts.

Furthermore, boxing trains the most important muscle of all — the human heart.

After some time training, the heart becomes much healthier and the human body is able to regulate oxygen much more efficiently, resulting in better energy management. Good, quality cardio is also one of the key components in weight-loss and martial arts provides many opportunities to exercise the heart.

3) Burn fat and build lean muscle
Once you begin to start leaning out and burning fat, boxing will show you your prime condition.

After a few months, you’ll begin to notice weight loss. Each one-hour session in boxing can burn up to 500 to 1,000 calories. That’s a huge amount, and combine that with proper diet, it can really have a positive effect on your physique.

Of course, burning calories and melting fat isn’t complete without building lean muscle. The movements and techniques in boxing, fortunately, allow practitioners to build lean muscle.

4) Have fun while you work out
Last but certainly not the least, and perhaps the most important, is that during boxing training you will have loads of fun.

Boxing and martial arts, in general, is the most fun you will ever have in a workout. And fun is one of the most important components in a fitness program. If you’re not having fun with what you’re doing, working out becomes a chore and it’s harder to exercise.

Luckily, boxing engages not only the human body but also the mind. Learn the secrets of self-defense and understand the motions and nuances of ‘The Sweet Science’. It’s a mental exercise as much as it is a physical one, and it should keep you interested and engaged for as long as you practice it.

Boxing has many benefits. One of them is losing weight fast and getting lean and fit. If you’re looking for the perfect workout to lose weight and get yourself in the best shape of your life, why don’t you give boxing a try?

New research shows gyms in England are successfully controlling COVID-19

New research from industry body, ukactive, has found gyms are almost risk-free environments for COVID-19, with an estimated 0.020 positive cases per 10,000 gym visits – results that are statistically insignificant.

ukactive collated data from more than 1,300 gyms, health clubs and leisure centres to analyse the prevalence of the virus within the sector’s facilities.

Charting the three weeks from reopening (from 25 July to 16 August), the data reveals that there were more than eight million visits to fitness facilities by members of the public.

Only 17 people visiting gyms in England went on to test positive for COVID-19, giving the figure of 0.020 cases for every 10,000 visits, with only nine reported cases of COVID-19 among members of staff across all 1,300 facilities.

ukactive says gym and leisure centre operators are well positioned to capture real-time data and are able to carefully record reported cases based on membership details held within their databases, as well as recording details for non-members, to allow for contact tracing – helping to inform authorities and other visitors quickly.

According to ukactive, the findings – released today (25 August) – support a “growing evidence base from across the globe” which shows that gym operating procedures are proving very effective at protecting people from COVID-19.

“This sample shows an extremely low prevalence of COVID-19 among people who visit gyms and leisure facilities,” said Huw Edwards, CEO of ukactive.

“Our sector has worked tirelessly to demonstrate its safety to the public and this new evidence helps us prove that these efforts are paying dividends, allowing us to get back to our work of keeping the nation happy and healthy.

We will continue to monitor closely – with our members – the number of COVID-19 cases, to show that the sector is being responsible in limiting its spread,” he said.

The sector worked closely with the UK government to develop the guidance for reopening safely, including organising site visits for the deputy chief medical officer and SAGE representatives to a range of facilities.

Regular exercise has been shown to improve a person’s ability to regulate the immune system, which is essential for avoiding the severe symptoms of COVID-19.

Weekend workouts are as beneficial as daily exercise, says study

If you struggle to find the time to work out during the working week, this news should be reassuring. According to a recent study, cramming in exercise sessions at the weekends is enough to provide significant health benefits.

Researchers from Loughborough University and the University of Sydney found that “weekend warriors” reduced their risk of an early death by a similar amount to those who spread the same amount of exercise over seven days, the BBC reports.

The results, which were based on a survey of around 64,000 adults aged over 40 in England and Scotland, compared those who exercise with people who remain inactive. They showed that those who worked out on one or two days of the week were found to lower their risk of dying from cardiovascular disease by 41 percent and cancer by 18 percent. There was little contrast with those who exercised regularly on three or more days per week, who reduced their risks by 41 percent and 21 percent.

For study author Dr Gary O’Donovan, the findings highlight the importance of ensuring fitness is “purposeful,” which should be welcome news for those with busy lifestyles.

NHS guidelines state that in order to stay healthy, adults aged 19-64 should aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity a week, such as weight training or fast walking, or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity, such cardio work.

Need a new plan ….. let us know at reception

Keeping active is crucial for staying healthy, and considering the recent revelation that 41 per cent of Britons aged 40-60 fail to walk for even ten minutes a month, you might be inclined to up your activity levels.

But it’s hard to know just how much exercise you should be doing to reach your fitness goals, be that weight loss or bulking up.

The type of workout you do ultimately depends on your ability, goals, likes and dislikes, equipment available, what injuries you have, and how much time you have available.

Whilst there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach, there are principles and guidelines that you can follow and apply to your training to ensure you have a balanced, effective, safe and enjoyable workout regime.

How many days a week should you train?
This depends on your goal…If you are looking to increase your fitness level to stay healthy – twice a week for 45 mins a session and a plan to follow is a great start. If you are a fitness enthusiast looking to gain speed, strength or muscle. 4 times a week with a plan to follow will get you on your way.

How long should your workouts be?
Some people argue that you can get an effective and efficient workout in half an hour if you use the time wisely, but we believe that if you want to make real progress, you should be working out for 45 minutes to an hour.

we recommend spending 10 minutes warming up and mobilising your body, 30-40 minutes weight training, and five-10 minutes cooling down and stretching,

That said, half hour workouts can be useful for conditioning sessions or interval training.

Have you seen – Fitness professionals turn government NHS posters to promote exercise – creates viral sensation

We all know exercise is an important component of staying healthy and reducing the risk of illness. Some Professionals in the fitness industry have taken to linked in to portray this message in a style we have got used to seeing in the last few months.

The article below was taken from

A set of posters created by a fitness Professionals, mimicking the government’s COVID-19 NHS messaging, have gone viral on LinkedIn.

The posters, carrying the message of “Exercise – Protect the NHS” were created by Daniel Ward, a qualified PT who works as a studio manager at an F45 franchise in Milton Keynes.

Ward had been using the lockdown to hone his Photoshop skills and, once it became clear to him that the government’s attitude towards the gym sector had “left something to be desired”, he decided to put his newly-acquired skills to use.

“I first realised that we might have a problem when the government published its very first list of sectors, alongside a schedule of when they might return – and fitness and gyms weren’t even on it,”

“While gyms were added to subsequent tables, I was further frustrated by the ‘pubs before gyms’ debacle around the 4 July reopenings.

“It was disappointing to witness pubs and restaurants being given the green light before fitness – especially as research from the US-based CDC shows that people suffering from obesity, heart conditions and diabetes are at a higher risk from COVID-19, all are conditions which exercise can reduce.

“So I decided to do my bit and to come up with some alternative messaging which would highlight the merits of physical activity.”

Ward began searching the NHS website and official government sites for figures and facts around the benefits of exercise.

After choosing some headline numbers, he created the posters to look like the ones used at the government’s daily briefings.

“I agree with the government that the NHS needs protecting,” Ward says. “And exercise can help do that by keeping people fit and healthy. During my 16-year career in fitness I’ve seen it with my own eyes.

“And it’s not just physical health that the sector can help with either. I know plenty of people who use exercise to improve their mental health – and there are studies that back up that.

“One of the numbers I found was that physical activity and exercise can cut NHS spending on mental health by 30 per cent. When you consider that mental health spending by the NHS in England alone accounted for £12.2bn in 2018-19, it’s not a small amount.”

Ward adds that it is clear that the industry agrees with the sentiment in his posters.

“It only took a few days for my posters to receive 6,000+ views, more than a hundred shares and countless likes,” he says – and adds that he would be happy for any gym or operator to use his artwork.

“I’d be 100 per cent happy for any gym or club to use the posters.

“I think now, during the pandemic, people are psychologically ready to commit to healthier lifestyles – and that includes physical activity. So it could be a way to highlight some of the advantages of keeping fit.”

The posters are as follows:
