“Made good friends while keeping fit, great coaches have taught me to box. Love Kingston BC.”

- Harison

“I started regularly attending the Box fit sessions over a year ago. The box fit sessions have been fantastic, I was made to feel very welcome straight away and have met lots of fab new friends along the way. It’s always a great atmosphere and the coaches are very supportive. Over the last 14 months I have noticed a big difference in my strength and fitness.”
