Boxing Fit Academy was formed in August 2011 and is run by Frank Collins and Martin Dunwoody. Frank has been  involved in boxing for 20 years and has  a lot of experience competing up and down the country, having the privilege to train in lots of different amateur and professional gyms, gaining a lot of  ideas and experience along the way.

“I have always loved competing but I have always got myself  involved in the coaching aspects of the sport aswel. I started my journey at an amateur boxing club in my home town of  Winsford, moving on to other amateur clubs in Warrington and professional clubs in Irlam and Tameside, Manchester. Here, I worked alongside some top coaches and boxers, putting me in good stead for the Boxing club” – Frank Collins

“I started boxing back in the early 70’s, at Droylsden Amateur Boxing Club, where I competed in a number of amateur contests, I then joined the Royal Fusiliers, where I took the boxing skills I had developed from Manchester as a junior. Other than my general army duties, boxing  played a big  part of my military life. I furthered my boxing experience in the army by competing in inter-unit bouts and got up to regiment level, I was also fortunate enough to train alongside some top coaches and boxers, such as Nigel Benn, all of which has put me in good stead for the boxing club, as alot of my motivational techniques, knowledge and experience come from my military background” – Martin Dunwoody.


We run regular boxing shows throughout the year, here is where our competitors get to test their skills against other boxers from different clubs throughout the country. We also take our competitors to other clubs’ boxing shows, where they compete in competitions and gain experience.

I first went to Frank back in 2011 as I needed help to get fitter and lose some weight, when I first started I weighed 19st 2lbs. Since then under Franks guidance and training I have managed to get my weight down to 15st 4lbs and I have competed in an amateur boxing contest and various sporting events. Boxing Fit provides a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, especially for beginners, The classes are tailored for all levels of fitness, gender and age.
