The Headon Boxing Academy

Headon Boxing Academy

As most of you have seen from recent posts, I tried my first ever boxing class. Most people associate boxing with injury, danger and essentially just fear the thought of trying it out. Stop right there. Going to that boxing class was such an eye opener for me. Not only does it challenge your fitness, but allows you to adapt and learn new skill sets while increasing your endurance. I fell in love with it so much that I will now be taking part in their Charity fight night programme! If you have ever wanted to try something different and didn’t know where to begin, look no further. What surprised me the most was how safe the class was and nothing like what I expected!

Classes with the Headon boxing academy are held in two locations; Chapter 2 fitness in Sandyford, and Crossfit 353 on Bath Ave. These classes are ran by Sean and Paddy, both former Leinster and Irish Champions who represented Dublin Boxing team. They both are qualified IABA boxing coaches and great fun to work with. As I am a complete beginner who wouldn’t know how to throw a punch, they provided a fun environment that allowed me to learn at a steady pace. I am so excited for my next class and couldn’t recommend these guys more.

The Headon boxing academy is renowned for organising Charity fight night programmes, raising thousands of euros for worthy causes in the process. The Headon brothers train all participants over to ensure a safe and successful fight night! The latest programme offers 6 week training to prepare for a March Fight night which will take place in the Talbot Hotel, Stillogan. This programme is unique in the sense that you can see what it is like to be a fighter and live the whole experience while raising money for a charity!

Could you be a fighter? There are limited places available so make sure you contact Sean or Paddy for more details:

I wanted to change up my gym programme & look into CrossFit as well and when I heard about this I had to give it ago. Even if you try boxing and it isn’t your thing, don’t give up. There are many options out there including yoga, boxfit, or one of my go to classes, Body Pump. I couldn’t recommend trying a class with Sean & Paddy even just to see what all the fuss is! You won’t regret it. Email me on with any questions.
