Jordan Gills Next Generation Foundation (JGNXTGEN)

Back to Activities

Based in March JGNXTGEN provide sessions that implement a core foundation of boxing skills. Whether it be children or adults, they tailor every session for the attendees. Their main aim is to help the local community improve their mental and physical health

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • the sessions can help reduce stress
  • the culture of sharing can help with communication skills and encourage people to talk with others who will listen.
  • exercise releases endorphins, as does feeling a part of something

Once you drive up to the centre there will be plenty of places to park. The venue has disabled access. Enter via the main entrance to the community centre and either ask  the receptionist to show you the way or follow the corridors to reach the hall. Outside the hall are changing rooms and toilets. It is a good idea to bring water with you in a bottle.

Once you enter you will see coaches Paul Gill and James Nixon and sometimes Amy Gill to register you. Each session will include an introduction to JGNXGEN; who they are are and what they do. Their aim is to make you feel as welcome and comfortable as possible.

The sessions will include a warm- up (based on your ability), fun and games varying from session to session and then some boxing basics. The coaches will explain why we do the things we do to help you understand and learn valuable insights. Boxing isn’t about punching something, it’s about coordination, patience, timing, and communication. The aim is to make you feel confident in your own skin and feel like you can talk to them, leaving the sessions feeling empowered.

Wear clothing you would exercise in and that you feel comfortable in. Trainers are the best bet for footwear.
