Who are we?
My name is Colin, and I started this boxing class in January 2015. I had learned to box in my 30's at Far Cotton Boxing Club and trained to be a boxing coach. I coached at Far Cotton for four years and Northampton Amateur Boxing Club for two years and during all this time of coaching, I had only seen a small handful of women and girls attending the classes, in general they seemed to enjoy it, indeed some had talent that I really didn't want to see wasted!!
However, many didn't see it through. Witnessing this wasted talent, I asked some of the women why they hadn't continued, the common answer was, "I would like to train with more women." The obvious answer?
Women's Boxing Northampton was born!
What do we do?
Here at Women's Boxing Northampton, we teach you to box. You will learn a skill, a science, an art. You will never forget it once you learn it, and you will never ever be perfect!
But don't expect to pop in now and again and turn into Anthony Joshua after three classes!
DEDICATION, DISCIPLINE AND DETERMINATION
But don't panic, you don't have to fight, you don't have to punch anyone or get punched. Although you can if you want to, we have had many successful female boxers.
Know that you can take it at your own pace, learn the art of boxing in a safe and supportive environment. You will be taught with patience, kindness and understanding. I know through my experience that everyone learns at different speeds and has different needs. We are all unique, you will be treated as an individual and with the utmost respect.
I am approachable, welcoming and polite. I also have the most amazing, helpful member assistants, who have helped me since day one!
Sounds great, yes?

What a workout !! I workout 4-5 days a week you could say I am a fitness fanatic and I enjoy a tough workout and being pushed to my limits. Women's boxing Northampton has become my favourite workout of the week ,it's tough ,but I am seeing results from the Saturday morning class .If you love a workout in a good friendly ,fun atmosphere this is the place for you.
I can honestly say I’ve never been to a fitness class/gym quite like this one… Colin and Dani (the coaches) are amazing, and they almost feel like family. Everyone is welcome. A chance to learn new skills and also have a laugh! Its a friendly environment and I’ve enjoying going since day 1. It’s addictive!
Have been going a month now after recently moving to the area and this is a FANTASTIC class of friendly and hard-working women who love their boxing. The coach Colin is really technical and patient with everyone and makes you feel welcome. Worth every penny!
Started here in June, and to be honest I wish I had done it sooner!
It is the quickest hour of exercise I’ve done. Colin delivers a great class and demonstrates everything in a simple way. I thought it would be intimidating to join a group of woman at a class but it’s more than your average exercise group, your there to learn not just sweat!
If your thinking about it, just do it.
I used to go boxing in Leeds but haven’t done it for over 10 years after relocating and having children and life generally taking over. Walked into Far Cotton Womens Boxing full of nerves….I needn’t have worried. Colin is an absolute legend who made me feel instantly at ease. He greets everyone with a warm smile and genuinely loves to see every single person there in his class. His coaching is first level, technical expertise that is really appreciated and world class frankly, and he takes time to help everyone, irrespective of level which is credit to him and the WBN family he has built. It’s rare to see women from all different backgrounds/ abilities/ physical/ mental capabilities together in one space feeling comfortable and turning up giving it their all, each session! Colin has created a very unique space . It’s a brilliant culture of positivity and support and amazing energy, we all feel like family to me. Wish I’d done it a lot sooner. If you want to get fit and learn a new skills / improve on where you’re at, get yourself booked in, Colin will look after you and so will we.
Had my first session on Saturday and it was absolutely amazing !! Great atmosphere, fantastic trainer!! And just a real good workout in general!! I want to really get into boxing myself for fitness purposes and other reasons and this is a fantastic way of doing that!! The trainer is extremely helpful, patient and just really kind!
Started the Tuesday class this week on my own felt very nervous as I'm not at all fit couldn't do one press up couldn't ask for a better club from the moment I walked in I was encouraged and cheered on didn't feel inadequate went at my own pace great people fantastic sport highly recommend to anyone
By far the best boxing club. For someone who was anxious about doing something on her own - Coach Colin (Top Bloke) and the rest of the beautiful women made me feel welcome, at ease and it is now one of my best parts to my week!
Colin covers all aspects of boxing from general fitness to technical moves.
I’ve been coming to women’s boxing since it started (give or take a few years of having kids!) Such a welcoming group of people. I feel stronger and much happier in myself. Fantastic, supportive coaches who know their stuff.
Whether you’ve dabbled in boxing before or have never tried it, they accommodate all levels. So glad I have somewhere like this on my doorstep!
