Hatton Academy is a multi-level Boxing for Fitness programme designed to give fitness professionals and boxing coaches the ability to use boxing skills as part of their training programmes.
We combine the principals of professional boxing training and functional fitness training to create a unique training system, providing the trainer with the boxing knowledge required to deliver safe, fun and effective boxing for fitness sessions without the need for contact.
Our system can be used by all styles of trainer and adapted to suit their clientele, whether that is for 1-on-1 sessions or group classes in both Boxing and Health and Fitness environments.
The Hatton Academy is the only Boxing training provider to be accredited by the Register of Exercise Professionals, ActiveIQ, CIMSPA and the British Boxing Board of Control.

I'm a personal trainer and I've done some boxing previously. A couple of my clients wanted to box in their sessions and the Hatton Academy fit the bill perfectly. Nic and Rich did an excellent job of training me so I could deliver sessions, coach good technique and provide feedback. I'm looking forward to taking my new skills out to my clients in the next few weeks!
Great course, well detailed did it in Dublin found Rich our instructor a fountain of knowledge- got his teaching point across easily and simple to understand. The course itself was well detailed and structure was brilliant. I would highly recommend it to any trainers in fitness or boxing to increase their boxing technique or pad drill skills.
