Neepawa boxing club adds new class


By: Lanny Stewart

The Neepawa boxing club has added a new class recently.

The class is designed to help boxers, or any athlete in general improve specific skills related to the sport they participate in, says Derek Pearson, founder of Boxe Neepawa: Combat Sports Club.

Pearson calls the class B/EAT, which stands for Boxers/Elite Athletes Training and it consists of 12-14 rounds of high tempo boxing drills which help improve skills such as foot and hand speed, balance and coordination.

"The class is offered to any athlete with specific goals, like making a sports team or improving their performance," said Pearson. "There is a boxing drill for virtually every athletic skill out there."

Pearson says prior to anyone taking the class, he talks to the athlete first to determine what their goals are and then proceeds from there.

"Then I'll put them through a regular boxing class and determine strengths and weaknesses and assign drills to improve those areas."

The class takes place every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 5-6 p.m. Pearson says he has also begun taking bookings for one-on-one training as well.

The club is located at B-287 Hamilton Street in Neepawa and is open Monday to Thursday, with the gym usually open on Saturdays. There are no classes taking place, but the gym can be used to workout.
