COACHED GROUP CLASSES
We at Rival Boxing gym Cochrane offer training program for hockey, football, ringette, soccer or rugby teams. We welcome youth from the age of 8 or 9 up to young adults. Our sessions are usually one hour long, we provide the boxing equipment.
Strength training: Not in the usual weight room, we offer sport oriented strength and power workouts for players. Jumps, bodyweight movements, barbell, dumbbell, kettlebell lifts with emphasis on explosive movement for a better performance.
Cardio and stamina: Boxing is certainly the most demanding sport in terms of stamina and cardio output. Our punching drills make the athletes improve their cardio, while footwork drills help with coordination and balance. When we combine punching and footwork, the benefits are even greater!
Confidence and team cohesion: Even though boxing is an individual sport, we make the training sessions oriented towards team work and effort. Using the new skills they learn about footwork and boxing stance, the athletes play games and drills to reinforce their team relationships.
We offer individual sessions for a team building experience outside of the rink/field, or once a week session for the duration of your choice for teams who want to improve their game using a very effective way of cross-training.
