Our adult classes are suitable for all age groups and all fitness levels. They are 60 minute non-contact fitness classes that use boxing techniques to improve fitness, strength and self esteem, and include a range of activities including skipping, running, bag work, working with hand pads and core fitness.
Women's Only Classes (school term time only)
At any of our adult fitness classes, approximately 50% of participants are female. However, in mid 2019 we determined there was a need for a Women's Only class - for women who were unsure about a gym environment, needing support to return to exercise or simply preferred exercising with other like-minded women in a non-judgemental and supportive environment. The classes are 45 minutes long and are held every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 9:15am which allows Mums to drop their kids off at school or kindy and come to the gym. The class has proven to be very popular and are a fun way for women to be active!

Adults with Parkinson's Classes:
Twice a week we run fitness sessions for adults with Parkinson's Disease. These fitness classes offer exercises to help with balance, co-ordination and strength. The classes are very social and offer a supportive network for the participants. They are run with the support and approval of the Nelson branch of Parkinson's New Zealand, and in 2019 we became an Approved Provider for Nelson Bays Primary Health for "Community Group Balance and Strength" classes.

Classes for Breast Cancer Survivors
Victory Boxing is very proud to be working collaboratively with the Nelson Regional Breast and Gynaecological Cancer Trust to provide an exercise class specifically tailored for breast cancer survivors. Using boxing techniques, the workout helps improve muscle strength and increases cardiovascular fitness. This, in turn, re-energizes minds and bodies, helping to promote healing. There are also many benefits from meeting and training with fellow survivors who have a shared understanding of breast cancer. The breast cancer group train with the Women’s Only classes on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 9:15.
Social Enterprise at work
The adult classes offered at Victory Boxing began in 2014 when Paul was asked if he'd be interested in running fitness classes for adults. The Youth Programme was established and successful, so this seemed like a natural progression to meet the needs of the Victory Community.
The adult programme started with one or two sessions per week, and as the need increased, so too have the number of classes on offer. We now offer seven sessions per week. The classes focus on physical fitness, and provide a safe non-judgemental place for adults to exercise and feel good about themselves and increase their overall sense of well-being.
Our adult programme is a great example of Social Enterprise at work and is an important part of what is offered at Victory Boxing. The income generated from the adult classes helps to ensure that Victory Boxing remains viable so we can continue working with the kids who participate in our after-school Youth Programmes.
