health & fitness

Our health & fitness pillar is targeted at anyone looking to make a positive change through improving their life and physical fitness. We work with a range of people on a self-referral basis. We find that boxing gives individuals routine, discipline and focus to help them accomplish more and promote personal growth.

university sessions

We also work with local universities to provide boxing sessions which are centred around building up physical fitness and improving boxing technique. We currently work with Birmingham City University, University of Birmingham, and Aston University. 
I am a student at Aston University, and I have been coming to the boxing sessions at Pat Benson Boxing Academy for just over 4 months. I found out about the boxing through my university website and have always been keen to get involved in sports. I am a big fan of boxing and have always wanted to try to be a boxer. Before I got involved in the sessions, I wasn’t very driven or focused with anything, and I also didn’t do much physical exercise on a regular basis. Since attending the sessions, I have definitely become more focused, and I know put more effort into everything that I do. As a result, I have become more productive and have been doing much better at uni. These boxing sessions have given me the opportunity to improve and test my limits, I would definitely recommend the sessions to others.
