The world’s greatest fictional boxer summed it up perfectly when he said, “it ain’t about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!” Thank you Rocky Balboa for your infinite wisdom. At The Fighting Chance, we believe in this statement wholeheartedly. We work with people who have taken a few knocks in life and support them to rebuild their lives by utilising the fundamental principles of boxing: discipline, self-control, mental strength and respect.
Our corporate team-building days will give you and your team an opportunity to learn the basics of boxing, find out about our vital work and be inspired by the success stories of past participants. The great thing is, not only will you be helping your team to become better at what they do, you’ll also be supporting a programme that strives to help others be the best they can be too.
The aim of our non-profit organisation is to support disadvantaged people from all backgrounds facing multiple barriers, to get back to work. We work with the long-term unemployed: ex-offenders, armed forces veterans, those with health conditions and the homeless, and we work closely with them to improve their physical and mental health. As well as boxing classes, we also provide 1-2-1 support from an employment coach and short-term and long-term employability support. All the proceeds from your team building day will be re-invested into ‘The Fighting Chance’ to continue to help those that need it.
We can customise your team building day to meet the needs of your organisation, no problem; but here’s a typical itinerary to give you an understanding of what we can do with you and your team:
10.00 - Register and change into your training gear. Grab a power snack and your water bottle and prepare for an enjoyable day ahead.
