Snapback boxing is a charitable trust established out of a love for fitness using boxing training and techniques. Snapback uses boxing fitness as a channel to encourage old and young to train in a safe and friendly group environment with the goal of building self-esteem and confidence.
The staff at Snapback have many years’ experience in the boxing arena and enjoy the comradery that training as a group brings. The key to success is encouraging people of all ages and fitness levels to have a go and push themselves to be better people and to be upstanding and strong contributors to society.
There is no judgement in this whanau atmosphere, only encouragement to be the best you can be and to feel good about yourself and your teammates.
