Free Weights Area

Our team of instructors encourage members to take up cardio boxing training, so you’ll find all the equipment you need within our boxing zone, from bags to skipping ropes. Our boxing classes also include innovative variations of the sparring jabs, power punches and defence to incorporate a blend of aerobic exercises. You will learn the proper execution of the punch and kick combinations for a more intensive workout to help you become stronger and more confident.
Moreover, these boxing training classes improve your speed, resistance and strength. Flexibility and the reflexes of the muscles are also enhanced. Repetitive motion of the arms by sparring and jogging while you punch helps your arms and legs gain strength and power. These workouts help develop your balance and coordination, which enables your body to be stable and maintain good form.
We have a suspension training zone which allows up to six different individuals to train at the same time. Suspension training utilises the users own body weight during a workout which makes the workout very effective and safe.
The River Bourne Club offers a CrossFit frame which allows the variation in workouts to be endless, from monkey bar swings to Olympic lifting; all can be performed in this area. The CrossFit Frame has many attachments which allow users to customise the frame to their needs. We use the frame in our CrossFit and boxing classes.
