We will be running a series of monthly workshops that will expose you to experienced coaches from many different sports. These workshops will run for 90 minutes and allow you to meet some of New Zealand’s Coaching Legends and find out how they achieved success.

The first legend is Eddie Kohlhase, a highly successful softball coach who has won multiple world championships as a coach and player. Eddie was involved with the Black Socks coaching team for 15 years. Come along on August the 2nd to learn about his journey to success!

A Healthy Start for Teens from 12 to 18 years

What is Active Teens?

Teens are unique in that they respond to a distinctly different type of motivation.

To achieve the best health and fitness outcomes Active Teens will have a greater focus on personal accountability and motivate teens in ways that are specific to them.

Modelled after other boxing programmes for teens, Active Families is creating a programme that will involve boxing as well as weight training and cardio sessions supervised by our trainers.

It will provide not only health benefits but discipline, focus and a change in attitude about nutrition and fitness.

A booklet will help the participants track nutrition and exercise achievements as well as providing a space for personal reflection in a diary section.

The Active Teens programme will also involve the families as it is essential that the whole family is involved in food choices, transportation and vital encouragement.
