Beats & Fast Feet - IWD edition

The class will be a part of a wider evening with 12x3 where they will also be hosting a boxing class and a panel talk with four incredible female boxers who also work as coaches at the gym. More details below!
Exclusive F&L Merch - IWD editions
And it doesn’t stop there! We have also teamed up with three amazing artists to create some exclusive F&L IWD merch - released exclusively at the event to raise even more funds. We tasked Kelly Anna, Mary Lo and Charlotte Mei to illustrate what women in fitness look like for them.
These illustrations will be screen printed onto Nike training gear– from dri-fit tees to tracksuits. Be the first to get your hands on the merch if you turn up to our event, we can’t promise that we will have much left after the event so you need to be quick to get your hands on them!
About this year’s IWD #BalanceForBetter
We 100% support this year’s initiative around #BalanceForBetter and it’s particularly stark in the world of fitness and sport - not only in visibility, but also representation through different types of sports and also conversations around it too.
This is the reason we do what we do, and why we want to help raise money to ensure we help bring more gender balance to sport at all levels.
What better way to do this than supporting the initiatives that Women In Sport do. Women In Sport are the only organisation in the UK that researches sport from the perspective of women. Those insights help influence change through the campaigns and partnerships that they do. These campaigns not only influence sport, but also schools, local councils and national government to ensure there is a level playing field for women and girls in sport in the UK.
12x3 Female Boxing Athletes and Coaches
It is such an honour to do this event with the women from 12x3 who have and continue to change the perception of women in boxing.
If you want to make a big evening of it we definitely suggest you also book onto Fighting for Balance. Fighting for Balance is a boxing class and panel talk which will be held ahead of our class and will be led by coaches Lisa Moore - Team England, Lesley Sackey - Team GB, Valerian Spicer - Team Dominica and Shelly Sweeney - Team England.
These athletes, who have represented their countries, will be holding coaching the boxing session and also talking about how and why they got into boxing during the panel. We’re so inspired by these women, we definitely suggest you go see them too for the rare opportunity to train with all four of them and hear their stories! Link here.
