Lifelong local lad and ex-semi professional boxer Levi Brown has launched a boxing gym ‘for all’ in Balsall Common. His new community project, BC Elite Boxing Club, will be showcasing itself with an Open Day event at the Jubilee Centre on Saturday 5th August from 4pm until 7:30pm.
The Open Day discovery session has been designed to showcase the training options on offer, allow visitors to ask questions and most importantly of all, to have a go at some practical skills to get a feel for how it all works:
“I provide personal classes and group classes for all ages and abilities,” said Levi, as he described what his club is all about.
“The idea is we have sessions to cater to any skill level from casual or novice, to regular amateur boxer right through to professional level. Whether it’s for fitness, weight-loss or training for a fight, I can provide versatile sessions that combine old school techniques with new school boxing to meet the needs of absolutely anybody.”
The idea for creating a boxing gym in Balsall Common was inspired in many ways by Levi’s own life experiences. He readily admits that boxing provided him with a much-needed outlet as a youngster and sees this project as a means of offering youngsters a place to go and somewhere to direct their energies in a positive way.With 10 years boxing experience that includes periods training with former World Welterweight Champion Kell Brook, among others, Levi has the skills and knowledge to help aspiring boxers of all ages and abilities. Opportunities exist for boys, girls, men and women and include group sessions and one-to-one coaching. Sessions can be tailored to specific aims, such as preparations for White Collar boxing fights such as Charity boxing matches.
