Boxing is a dynamic sport which provides a total body workout. It has many benefits such as better balance and coordination, increased muscle mass, improved stamina, and reduced stress. In addition to being a great source of cardio exercise, it also gets your heart pumping and your lungs working harder. Dunboyne Amateur Boxing club certainly provides all of that, and is bursting with members every night from the age of 8 upwards – the adrenaline and energy in the gym is palpable.
Shane Poleon, the clubs Head Coach told Meath Live
“So far this year, we have 9 Leinster Champions and 6 All Ireland champions, a testament to how hard our members train and prepare. We could not be prouder of all our members, who train hard every night, with real effort, skill and determination. But it’s not all about the training or the fights – It’s about seeing the young people grow and develop into confident young adults – committed, fearless, strong and independent.”
Dunboyne Amateur Boxing Club are looking forward to the Cadets in June and July, where they will have eight boxers fighting. In the meantime, the club continues to train 5 nights a week and at the weekends.
