The Boxercise Instructor course is a one day eight hour intensive course designed to meet the needs of instructors who would like to gain a foundation in the fundamental techniques of boxing for fitness and coaching. These skills can then be used to teach classes or with 1-to-1 clients.

The aim of the Boxercise Instructor Course is not to turn instructors into competition standard boxers, but ensure they leave the course able to competently coach the basics of Boxercise to a participant, allowing them to work out safely whilst having fun and gaining a skill.

On completion of the course attendees will be able to take a Boxercise style class, or use the skills learnt for personal training clients or bootcamp.

To enhance your skills further, please see the other modules we offer and book two courses at once to receive a discounted rate.

FAQs Course Pathway


To anyone who is thinking of doing the Boxercise training, do it!! The initial training course is really well planned, taught in a way that doesn't make you feel like your heads in a spin, especially if, like me you're new to the game! Plus, after you have taken the course, there are so many ways to progress with add on courses, a yearly masterclass and extra learning resources online. I've worked with/for many organisations over the years and I've never come across one so efficient and supportive as Boxercise.

I have recommended other instructors to become a Boxercise instructor because it's so much fun and boxing fitness is here to stay. It's also a great class to teach as you don't have to worry about learning any complicated routines or hitting the beat of the music if you don’t want! You plan what you want to plan for and If it's not going to plan it's easy to pull something out of the reserve bank and no class ever needs to be the same as the last. I've also adapted the class on several occasions to accommodate those with disabilities or learning difficulties. It's great that you can offer up different exercises and ways around your plan to include everyone, without them feeling left out.

As a British Boxing Board of Control Licensed Professional Coach wanted to bring a new element of training and a secondary income to my gym. I was impressed by the knowledge of the course tutors, each themselves being boxing coaches.with extensive fitness backgrounds. Not only was the course fun but I also learned a few new tricks! Thanks to the tutors for an informative and well designed course.
