Snapback was born out of a desire to use the training, techniques and discipline of boxing to raise fitness levels, self-esteem and confidence among people of all ages.  We encourage people of all ages and fitness levels to join in the fun, whanau focused sessions where encouragement is the key focus. 


The classes allow you to fulfil your goals in a friendly environment.  You push yourself at your speed and level with the aim of bettering yourself in not only fitness levels but also in your attitude, confidence and self-esteem.  Snapback also specialises in working with youth groups to channel their energy in a fun and engaging manner to be leaders, good role models and positive contributors to society.  Strong and supportive Whanau is the key to inspiring people of all ages and Snapback boxing has Whanau at the forefront of their kaupapa. 


Our boxing ring strategy is designed on the philosophy of the seven kaupapa Māori values:

  • Wairua (Spirituality) We believe all things are embedded with a sacredness

  • Manaaki (Care) We create a culture of caring and inclusivity

  • Whakawhanaungatanga (Relationships) We support positive relationships

  • Kaitiakitanga (Guardianship) We keep each other safe

  • Rangatiratanga (Leadership) We promote leadership of self and others

  • Oranga (holistic wellbeing) We encourage holistic wellbeing

  • Āhurutanga (Safe space) We provide a disciplined safe space for all
