About this event

Our programme aims to empower adults with or at risk of Type 2 Diabetes to improve their health and wellbeing through structured exercise based on non-contact boxing or boxercise.

In the aftermath of Covid-19, our 12-week Boxing Fitness for Type 2 Diabetes Programme is expected to motivate adults of all ages to develop and sustain active lifestyles to combat health problems, such as heart disease, obesity and the risk of Type 2 diabetes.

At the start of the programme, participants will complete a Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q) which will identify any health issues, and allow the coaches to assess individual goals for the programme.

During the first 4 weeks, participants will gain boxing skills in combination with fitness, endurance and core strength.

In the final 4 weeks, participants will reassess their initial goals and set new targets which will be monitored at self-assessment and peer reviews during the latter weeks of the programme.

Sustaining Active Lifestyle

At the end of the programme, participants will be sign-posted to further opportunities to sustain active lifestyles.

Anticipated outcomes include improvements in:

1. Fitness levels

2. Mental health and wellbeing

3. Blood glucose control for those with and at risk of Type 2 diabetes
