FIGHTING FIT: Boxing gym’s fundraiser
A boxing gym in Kirkdale are raising money to make improvements to their space so they can expand and make even more of a difference to the local community.
As well as hosting a variety of fitness and boxing classes they also offer an education service for children that have been excluded from mainstream education.
Robbie Butler who runs the gym believes it's important for the Rydal to provide positive role models for the younger generation.
The gym itself plays a big part in in the north Liverpool community, working with people from all backgrounds. During the pandemic they provided a food bank facility and other services to help locals get through this tough time.
Robbie has been running the gym since 2010 and as a former boxer himself, knows all too well of the benefits of the sport.
As well as improving our overall fitness, research shows that physical activity can also boost self-esteem, mood, sleep quality and energy, as well as reducing your risk of stress, depression and Alzheimer's disease.
