Youth Class
A structured boxing program targeted for youth ages 8-13 years of age that provides a great workout in a safe (non-contact), challenging and FUN environment. Emphasis is on physical literacy with a strong boxing component. No boxing experience necessary (Length of Training: 45 minutes).

Hit like a Girl
With the same focus on fundamentals and fitness as our Fundamentals class, the Hit Like a Girl (women’s only) will provide a more specialized training approach for United Boxing Club’s female members. No boxing experience necessary (Length of Training: 1 hour)

Fundamentals
Boxing is a complex skill but yet simple design of a sport. Thus, the fundamentals is a great class for everyone. We begin with a specific punching technique to develop, then work on the technique with high intensity drills. The drills improve our ability of the technique and our cardiovascular system. We finish with a great core routine, and stretching. This is where we have everyone start! It challenges new people to understand the basics, but also challenges those who have boxed for a long time to improve their fundamentals. (Length 1.25 hour)

Technical Boxing Class - Technical Membership
This is a new addition to our program to improve those who like to understand the defence and counter punching skills that go into boxing. We focus on using the opponents mistakes, and creating offence off of our defence. We even practice drills that we call Technical Sparring, which can be contact or non contact. (If contact is wanted, medical and boxing registration is required). This is program is for intermediate to competitive participants, however you do not need to want to be a competitive athlete to participate. As long as you've had some experience in our fundamentals class and have gotten comfortable with the basics, you're welcome to join! (1 hour)

Competitive Team Training
Our gym originally came from very few athletes, but our athletes dominated. Our two top coaches, Ryan Savage and Brandt Butt, are both former national champions, and are amazing coaches that know all the techniques and strategies that it takes to win fights. With the guidance of our great coaching staff and the  competitive teammates, these practice times will help you get to improve your skills to prepare you for fights, as we believe our team works stronger together. Regardless of if you want just one fight for the experience, or you want to go after a national championship, we are their to support you to the end! (1.5 hours)

Integrated Team Training and Open Supervised Sparring
During the week we like to give both the Technical Members and Competitive Team Members a chance to improve their skills together. This practice is often guided through one of our competitive members, but it can also be used as a personal practice time and the athletes can work on the skills they want to improve on. 

During this time our competitive athletes have an opportunity to do open sparring and test their skills in the ring on what they've learnt, and help them prepare for fights up coming. However, those who have enough experience in our Technical Boxing class, can be permitted to join, and recreationally spar and test out the skills they have learnt. (Note: Medical and boxing registration is required). 
 
United's Boxing Fighting Progression
We have now designed our program around how to progress someone who has never learnt how to box, all the way to the ring;
  • The fundamentals to start learning how to punch, and improve our conditioning.
  • Technical Boxing to improve the defence and understand the technical side of fighting.
  • Open Sparring to learn the closest thing to the actual fight, and testing skills against someone else. Punching power is restricted but the speed is encouraged.  Some might even be content with the experience of open recreationally sparring, in which they can stop here!
  • Competitive team practice, if your goal is to fight the athletes should be encouraged to join the team practice, to hear our coaches strategies and key aspects of fighting, and experience the high intensity workouts our team goes through.
  • The Fight: Those who want to really test their skills can finally bring it to the ring and have their first fight. It could just be one or many, but either way, we are here to support it. We Train United, We Fight United, We Are United. 

UBC Yoga for boxers and beginners
It's important to look outside of boxing for complete body health, and critical for boxers whom always are prone to injury. We have introduced a new yoga program to help those who like to improve their flexibility and mobility, as well as recovery. The class is designed to help boxers and yoga beginners get comfortable with uncomfortable positions. (You can bring your own but we provide mat rentals.)
