You will learn in total 32 new moves to add to the basic 8 punches learnt on the Boxercise course. You will never run out of ideas or combinations on the pads ! Enough to keep your clients challenged and returning week after week.

FAQs Course Pathway


Having recently had a career change, I became a qualified PT and wanted to do pad work with my clients. Having searched the web for courses, i found the Boxercise website and having browsed their information, decided that they covered the areas I wanted and seemed to be a well established and professional company. I completed the basic instructor course and found it extremely enjoyable and was hooked (excuse the pun), having never picked up a boxing glove in my previous 50 years. i then went on to do the PT/ Advanced skills course, kickboxercise and kids courses, qualifying for the advanced instructor. My participants enjoy the sessions and keep coming back. This has taken my business down a completely different path. Andy Wake and his team are very knowledgeable and give you the tools to instruct good technique to your clients keeping them safe from injury and are always there if you need advice or help on issues and of course backed up by all the other instructors offering loads of drills and ideas in the facebook group. I have recovered my costs already in three short months and am looking forward to the future with Boxercise.

I've been a self-employed PT for years but since I've done the Boxercise Instructor course and the Advanced skills course my income has doubled. It's been a great investment and the clients love it! I can't wait to do a Speed Pads course as well!
