CERN (fit &) Boxing Club

Welcome to the home page of the CERN fit-boxing club. The CERN Fit-Boxing Club is part of the CERN Fitness Club, and as such we share the same Statuts du Club Fitness du CERN

How can I join?

Anyone can join this club: there's no violence, blood, and no, it's not a fight club! ...and... don't you know the rules of the fight club? ;-)

Anyone means small or tall, man or lady, weak or strong... It's just fun, isn't it? (besides it's also a very good physical exercise if you are doing some sedentary job at CERN, like most of us :-D)

This website contains all you need to know about being a member of the CERN Fit-Boxing Club.

Timetable

Timetable is the following:

Monday18:30 - 20:00Experts training. Trainer: Vittorio
Wednesday18:30 - 19:30Standard, intermediate training. Trainer: Federico
Friday17:30 - 19:00Beginners training. Trainer: Jacopo

Monday is dedicated to "advanced training". The level and intensities of the exercises could be harder. The participants to these trainings are expected to have already a good knowledge of the boxing basics. Certain exercises might require the mouth-guard, and you should bring your own. At the same time more freedom to the individual training will be granted. The physical preparation is left to the participants.

Wednesday will be dedicated to "regular training", without a specific target of participants. The physical preparation is centered on high intensity trainig.

Friday is dedicated to beginners. Special exercises for beginners will be organized with emphasis on the basic techniques. This is definitely recommended for those who never wore gloves before. The physical preparation is centered on cardio.

Every member of the club is invited to participate to every training session, but beginners session will take place ONLY on Friday and advanced session will take place ONLY on Monday. Experienced members are invited to participate to all the trainings, and to help the beginners, especially on Friday.

The members of the club are invited, if they want, to choose which session is more appropriate for them. On the other hand trainers will try to make sure that members participate to the appropriate trainings.

Showers are available inside the PUMP Hall itself. There are also showers at the Computer Center (-1 floor) and at Building 16.

How to join
