THE ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS

HOW MUCH WILL THE CAMP COST? 

There is sign up deposit of £200 but this is fully refunded to you if you sell 20 tickets by week 6 of the training camp.  If you are able to do this, you in effect get all of the training and the event for absolutely nothing! If you don’t sell the tickets, the deposit is lost, but it still works out to only £10 per 90 min session and includes over 25 hours of free access to the gym per week!

DO I NEED TO BUY ANYTHING? 

While we will most of the equipment for you including ropes, gloves and headguards we will not be able to provide wraps or gumshields as these are items that will be personal to you. We do sell a full fighter package which will provide you with absolutely everything you need for the entire camp including your fight kit. These can be purchased on our sign up page. 

AM I SUITABLE TO TAKE PART? 

You don't need to be under 25 or an athlete to take part but you do need to be ready and willing to get fit and push yourself hard.  Subject to passing a brief medical, you will be approved to fight but you should inform us at the earliest opportunity if you have any medical issues that you believe would prevent you from safely participating in the camp or the fight. 

DO I NEED ANY PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE? 

No, you don’t even need to have tried on a pair of gloves to sign up - infact most of our sign ups are people with very little experience. Remember, we match you with your opponent based on weight, size, experience and ability, meaning you’ll only ever be matched with  some that’s at a very similar level to yourself. 

WHAT IF I CAN'T MAKE EVERY SESSION? 

Don't panic! There is no obligation to attend every session and even small interruptions won't have a huge detriment on your training. Naturally we would advise you to attend as many as possible but we would also encourage you to attend the gyms recreational sessions and open drop-ins to maintain your fitness and practice your technique during any times when you can't make the camp. 

 

HOW WILL WE BE TRAINED? 

The training is designed to be the most intense workouts you have likely encountered but we promise to support, encourage and stay  by your side through it all. You will be pushed to your limit both physically and mentally to ensure that you are every bit prepared for  fight night. You will also have conditioning sessions which will prioritise building stamina, strength and general fitness. We will  provide  diet and nutrition advice to compliment your training and towards the end of the camp we will discuss psychology and  learning to think like a fighter. Unlike many of our competitors who don't encourage sparring to avoid participant drop out, our ethos  is train hard; fight easy so you’ll be introduced to controlled competitive sparring at any early stage giving you the best opportunity to  practice your skill in a competitive setting. Before the camp starts you will recieve a full Fighter Pack which will set out the contents  of every single session for the next 10 weeks so you will know exactly what to expect and can revise anything you miss. 

 

WHO WILL I FIGHT? 

We take matchmaking extremely seriously and you will never be matched with an unfair opponent just to fill a show! Your progress will be closely monitored and carefully assessed by the coaches and using this information you will be matched with somoene else from the group depending on weight, experience and skill level demonstrated. All matches made by the coaches will be reviewed by a panel of coaches and approved by a senior coach to ensure that matches are fair and high safety standards are met. Once confirmed you will be informed of your match one week before the fight. If in the highly unlikely event we are unable to match you fairly you have any tickets sold refunded and be offered a guaranteed space on the next camp. 

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT ON FIGHT NIGHT? 

You will warm up backstage with our experienced coaches who will get you in the exact right frame of mind for your big moment. You will walk out to the sound of your favourite song with your family and friends screaming your name. After 3 x 2 minute rounds of pure adrenaline you'll  wait hand in hand with the ref to find out who was victorious. Whatever the result, you will embrace your opponent and celebrate the whirlwind experience that you both just shared together.  It will be one of the most empowering, memorable and defining moments of your life.

HOW DO MY FRIENDS BUY TICKETS

All tickets can be bought online from out Tickets page. To purchase a ticket the buyer needs to enter your unique Boxer Ref which allows us to track how many tickets each boxer has sold. Once a ticket has been purchased the buyer will recive an e-ticket via their email account which they can bring with them to the event and show on the door.  

HOW CAN I GET ADDITIONAL TRAINING

 The gym offers recreational boxing sessions every night from 6pm -10pm which are perfect for keeping the fitness up and reinforcing technique. If you are looking for a more a personalised session one-to-ones will be available throughout the camp with any of our qualified PT's.

 

WHAT IF I CHANGE MY MIND?
We appreciate that this can be a daunting experience so we will allow a one week grace period after the camp start date to withdraw from the camp and receive a refund of your sign up fee. As fighters ourselves we totally understand that it is natural to get pre-fight nerves and don't let all the confidence fool you, every competitive fighter has experienced some anxiety about stepping into the ring. We guarantee that we will be there with you every step of the journey and we even dedicate one of our sessions to coaching you on exactly how to channel the adrenaline and keep calm under pressure. 

 

HOW SAFE IS IT?

Boxing by its nature has some inherent risks but your safety is our utmost priority. For the fight itself and any sparring beforehand all fighters will wear gum shields, head guards and 16oz boxing gloves (bigger than normal gloves for your protection). On fight night, you will be approved fit to box by a medical professional who will also be ringside for the duration of your fight. If your ability to box is at any point compromised you will not be able proceed with the fight.
