Today I was teaching @zozoatkins how to block punches thrown at you๐Ÿ‘Š . Although I don't teach "self defense" as such (boxing is an offensive "sport", not a self defense art), it has to be a benefit in life to be able to protect yourself, should you ever find yourself in a situation that you cannot get out of (For the record, I do not condone violence of any kind, and would always say walk away from confrontation, even if you know you have the upper hand!!) . So here I am teaching Zoe to block the jab (paw it), catch the right hand, or paw it (not a favourite of mine), and also the high guard๐ŸฅŠ . Very simple but effective defensive movements, but make sure you're standing in a boxing stance and not square on!! . Well done Zoe, I know this is painfully hard when you first do this, as the brain goes into panic / overdrive mode when punches come toward you . The natural reaction is to protect your eyes, that's why when starting boxing you turn away, blink, close your eyes when starting sparring; you have to retrain your brain not to do that, which is incredibly hard, especially as you get older (hence why starting boxing as a kid is advisable:-) . #herts #workout #boxingpadwork #boxer #padholder #padman #padwork #fitnessgoals #hertford #highintensity #classes #ware #boxingclass #groupexercise #grouptraining #groupfitness #hattonacademy#boxingcoach #personaltrainer #pt #athletic #strength #conditioning #strengthandconditioning #fitfam #learnboxing #learntobox #womensboxing #kidsboxing #1on1
If you are paying a personal trainer for any form of fitness / sport, ask yourself where they fall in the above๐Ÿ™„  If you're serious about your fitness / sport, the chances are you would be better off paying your hard earned ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ to someone that has extensive knowledge in your field of interest  #jackofalltradesmasterofnone #jackofonetrademasterofone  #hattonacademy #boxing #abboxinghertford #boxercise #boxingforfitness #fitfam #boxingcoach #exercise #healthylifestyle #fitness #womensboxing #highintensityintervaltraining #hit #hiit #cardio #hertford #newfitnessclasses #boxingtrainer #hertfordshire #boxingclub #loseweight #diet #weightloss #getinshape #getfit #personaltrainer #boxingtraining #boxinginstructor

@danny.creak doing a bit of muscle memory training . These kind of drills have their place in boxing training, although I wouldn't recommend just doing this style of padwork and nothing else . The idea here is to work faster than the brain can think, in order that the brain switches off and the body takes over and everything becomes automatic . Then hopefully in a real-life situation, if a punch gets thrown at you, you will do "something" as opposed to "nothing!!" . There's no right or wrong in boxing. If a jab is thrown, you can block it, slip it, lean back, counter jab...they're all options, and you just want to have as many options in your arsenal as possible๐Ÿ‘Š . #hattonacademy #boxing #circuitbox #circuittraining #boxingforfitness #fitfam #fightcamp #exercise #healthylifestyle #fitness #realboxingtechnique #highintensityintervaltraining #hit #hiit #cardio #hertford #newfitnessclasses #boxercise #hertfordshire #pt #no1boxing #loseweight #diet #weightloss #getinshape #getfit #personaltrainer #boxingtraining #ware #instafit
. Bit of pads with @thenikkieo last week . She really does punch so hard...seriously her right hand has awesome power...imagine getting punched in the face by that๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ‘Š . Fantastic technique, really extending her punches and turning the knuckles over . Great body movement; transferring the body weight from left to right with each punch๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ . Really a joy to train . Anyone want to train 1on1, get in touch!! . #hattonacademy #boxing #circuitbox #circuittraining #boxingforfitness #fitfam #fightcamp #exercise #healthylifestyle #fitness #realboxingtechnique #highintensityintervaltraining #hit #hiit #cardio #hertford #newfitnessclasses #boxercise #hertfordshire #pt #no1boxing #loseweight #diet #weightloss #getinshape #getfit #personaltrainer #boxingtraining #ware #instafit
. @emmachandi has started doing some 1on1 PT sessions with me (in her lovely garden:-) . She is trying to get to grips with the defensive movements that the Hatton Academy puts into our routines . She is very new to my classes and wanted an extra bit of help to fast-track her through the various combinations . Today we worked on ducking & weaving punches, then moved onto slipping punches . Very good effort for a first PT session, and by her own account, her fitness could do with improving too, so I will be working on both boxing technique and all round fitness with Emma ongoing . Well done๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Š . #hattonacademy #boxing #circuitbox #circuittraining #boxingforfitness #fitfam #fightcamp #exercise #healthylifestyle #fitness #realboxingtechnique #highintensityintervaltraining #hit #hiit #cardio #hertford #newfitnessclasses #boxercise #hertfordshire #pt #no1boxing #loseweight #diet #weightloss #getinshape #getfit #personaltrainer #boxingtraining #ware #instafit
. So pleased with how @pav14 has improved since starting with me only a few months ago๐Ÿ‘ . Pav does 1on1 PT with me twice a week now, as well as coming to four of my weekly classes . Considering she has never boxed before, her technique is phenomenal . Her hands are up (most) all the time ๐Ÿ˜‰ . She punches from the chin, and pulls the hands back to the chin . She generates power through her legs and twisting of the hips . She has nice clean crisp punches - you can tell by the sound the pads makes that the punches are crisp and sharp - there's no "thud" sound . She needs to work on her head movement and general movement (which is really hard when you don't have a ring to train in) . She also needs to sit down on her punches more, but these are minor things that just need tweaking . This kind of padwork is perfect for tightening everything up . I'm really quite blown away by just how far she has come in such a short time . A lot of the people I train have moved on massively too, but I don't do 1on1's with everyone, so using Pav as my Guinea Pig ๐Ÿ˜‰ . Keep up the good work๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ‘Š . #hattonacademy #boxing #circuitbox #circuittraining #boxingforfitness #fitfam #fightcamp #exercise #healthylifestyle #fitness #realboxingtechnique #highintensityintervaltraining #hit #hiit #cardio #hertford #newfitnessclasses #boxercise #hertfordshire #pt #no1boxing #loseweight #diet #weightloss #getinshape #getfit #personaltrainer #boxingtraining #ware #instafit
. Doing a bit of padwork with @clairethistle87 tonight as her partner in crime was on yet another holiday! . Repeating some drills to put into practise the new defensive moves of the Elite course that I took on Saturday . Knowing the difference (and hand / body position) between a slip, sway, shoulder roll and head block . Only her first session with the new combos and I think she did exceptionally well๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ . And proving that practice DOES make perfect ๐Ÿ˜ . And luckily she didn't get a black-eye๐Ÿ˜‰ . Well done Claire๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Š . #hattonacademy #boxing #circuitbox #circuittraining #boxingforfitness #fitfam #fightcamp #exercise #healthylifestyle #fitness #realboxingtechnique #highintensityintervaltraining #hit #hiit #cardio #hertford #newfitnessclasses #boxercise #hertfordshire #pt #no1boxing #loseweight #diet #weightloss #getinshape #getfit #personaltrainer #boxingtraining #ware #instafit
. Just a few of the many benefits from boxing training . Boxing mixed with circuit training is both aerobic and anaerobic exercise . Boxing is the original HIIT - way before the word became 'trendy' . When people ask what sport / exercise is best for them to look a certain way, I say "look at the physiques of athletes in various sports" . For me at my age now, boxers / combat fighters have the ultimate physiques - they are strong, powerful, lean and mobile . If you really push yourself and train hard, at least three times a week (not every session has to be boxing training), plus clean up your diet, you WILL see results! . If you have a passion for fitness and have never tried boxing before, get in touch . I cater for all levels, male and female, and offer 1on1 PT sessions and group classes . Stop thinking about it and start 'doing'๐Ÿ‘Š . #hattonacademy #boxing #circuitbox #circuittraining #boxingforfitness #fitfam #fightcamp #exercise #healthylifestyle #fitness #realboxingtechnique #highintensityintervaltraining #hit #hiit #cardio #hertford #newfitnessclasses #boxercise #hertfordshire #pt #no1boxing #loseweight #diet #weightloss #getinshape #getfit #personaltrainer #boxingtraining #ware #instafit

. Anyone that trains with me and wants to invest in some high quality gloves around the £100 mark, these are available on eBay at sale price at the moment . Ringside USA (not to be confused with Ringside UK) . Very high quality gloves. On par with gloves at £150 such as Rival . A few of my clients have asked me to recommend decent higher quality gloves, and this is what I would suggest - very good bang for you buck! . And just to confirm, there is absolutely nothing wrong with the Hatton gloves at all, but they are 14oz, and some of my guys want to spar, so 16oz gloves are minimum. For the classes I teach, the Hatton 14oz are more than good enough, and what I would recommend . For sparring, I'd recommend gloves £100 upward, and 16oz or 18oz . The best gloves you can buy for hand protection and for use in sparring are lace-up Winning Japan, but they'll set you back £350 - £400 . #herts #workouts #boxingpadwork #boxer #padholder #padman #padwork #fitnessgoals #cardiovascular #highintensity #classes #class #boxingclass #groupexercise #grouptraining #groupfitness #personaltrainerhertford #boxingcoach #athlete #physique #athletic #strength #conditioning #strengthandconditioning #bootcamp #learnboxing #learntobox #womensboxing #kidsboxing #fitfamily
. Nice to see Samad keeping his hands up for a change ๐Ÿคฃ . Considering this is only your 12th or so boxing class ever, it's pretty impressive . Starting to move around a bit and not be so static . Hands up and twisting at the hips with each shot . Hands back to the chin after punching . It's genuinely impressive for such a short time boxing, plus you haven't had any 1on1 with me, you've only ever partnered with Ben . And Ben is doing a great job on the pads too๐Ÿ‘ . #herts #workouts #boxingpadwork #boxer #padholder #padman #padwork #fitnessgoals #cardiovascular #highintensity #classes #class #boxingclass #groupexercise #grouptraining #groupfitness #personaltrainerhertford #boxingcoach #athlete #physique #athletic #strength #conditioning #strengthandconditioning #bootcamp #learnboxing #learntobox #womensboxing #kidsboxing #fitfamily
