Fitness Boxing Team Oulu
Fitness Boxing training in Oulu was started in autumn 1988, when Juha Hänninen and a couple of others wanted to train also ordinary people in boxing, not only those who would participate in boxing tournaments. Because it was difficult to get training times for an unorganized group of people, Fitness Boxing Team Oulu was established on 19 Sept 1991. In the first meeting there were three persons present: Anne Hänninen, Pekka Kujasalo and Juha Hänninen. During the years, the activity has expanded: in year 2005 we were the biggest fitness boxing club in the world with 1190 members and 21292 trainees in the trainings.
Anyone can do fitness boxing: the youngest trainees are 13 to 14 years old, the oldest have already retired from their working career. Fitness Boxing Team Oulu trains in Raksila Swimming Center boxing gym. A normal training session lasts one hour. Please check the training schedule on the front page. There are special training sessions recommended to beginners. After Tuesday and Saturday trainings sauna and swimming are available to the trainees free of charge. Do not hesitate to join the team and start a new good hobby!
