Blackrod Boxing and Fitness Club is situated below the Methodist church on New Street Blackrod. It is open every weekday evening, except for Wednesdays and you’ll find a thriving fitness club which caters for both men and women of all ages and levels of fitness.
The club, which has been in existence since September 2011 is run by Stuart Greaves and boxer Rick Godding, a young up and coming local lad who was national Amateur Champion and has been a professional boxer since 2008. The club has recently achieved ABA affiliated status and are now looking to increase the membership and gain much needed funding to purchase new, up to date equipment.
Rick and Stuart are both qualified ABA coaches, first aiders and both have been CRB checked. And for the women’s boxing training, Gemma and Anna are the two female coaches on hand. Anna told me that the women’s sessions are well attended but that they always happy to see more.
Rick says “Most coaches can only offer training sessions in the evening, whereas here at the boxing club I can offer to hold training sessions during the day to fit in with the individuals work life ratio, so if you have unusual work patterns or have more time available in the afternoons and would like to take advantage of our daytime sessions, just get in touch.”
As a professional Rick is constantly looking for sponsorship from local businesses or individuals to help him in his future career, if you think you can help or if you want to join the club contact either Rick or Stu.
