Boxing Fitness 4 Type 2 Diabetes

Our FREE 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.

Our 24-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 Phase 1 of the programme, participants will gain boxing skills in combination with fitness, endurance, and core strength.

In Phase 2, 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, such as local gyms and boxing clubs.

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
