Can parents train with the kids...?
We love the idea of parents training with their kids – so much that we have added YOUTH (& PARENTS) classes to our schedule for 2021 – Saturdays 7:30AM! As parents, we need to set an example for our kids. Exercise and learning new skills should always be a part of our lives. Why do we drive our kids to after-school activities and then sit on the side-lines, looking at our phones, and complaining that we have no time for exercise?! Get up and join in. These classes are designed to challenge Youth 10-16 years and their parents if they accept the challenge…
Will you be adding more classes?
Yes, definitely! Magic Boxing started up as COVID restrictions eased with a very modest timetable. Now that our clients are aware of, and loving our classes, we will continue to add new times. Please feel free to send us a message to let us know what times you would like to see added to our schedule. Thank you.
