Yes, by age 50 typically “silvertips” have come out in all of us, but that doesn’t have to mean we lose our energy levels or want to have less fun! You can freely choose to spend or create energy despite age or even in the face of some diseases. The Silvertip boxing program is designed to mitigate against the challenges that age or inactivity can present to us. With regular attendance you will not only see improvement in overall strength and fitness but you will feel positively supported by your peers and coach. In the fitness component, we focus on core stability, cardio respiratory fitness, stamina, flexibility, reaction time, balance, coordination and mobility.
You likely haven’t boxed before, maybe never exercised before either but if you want to try something that is really fun and socially rewarding you could consider joining us. We train during the daytime and have a very friendly open group with a great sense of humour who love to “work hard”, “play hard” and to “learn hard”. Beyond an ever changing full body workout, a significant part of each class is dedicated to skills based technical training which is everyone’s favourite part. They are always willing to work through the “tough stuff” to get to the rewarding part! This type of training includes a wide variety of cognitive elements that have been shown along with moderate to intense physical exercise to be neuroprotective for aging individuals and for those with neurodegenerative disease.
