The Monthly Catch-Up: July 2020

Don't Call it a Comeback ...

 The Re-Opening: Phase II

The 5th of July marks another key milestone for TBI – the return of our normal timetable and a return to full contact drills and sparring. (For more information on our timetable, click here). As part of our transition, we’ve also doubled the maximum amount of attendees per class.



As always, the safety of our members is front of mind. As such, our strict cleaning protocols are still in place and we continue to require members to bring their own gear and towels. And if you don’t have you own gear yet, come talk to us! Transitioning back to full contact drills and sparring makes it even more important to continue being vigilant, to ensure TBI continues to be a clean and safe place to train. So we thank all our members for their great work thus far and hope this continues in future.

From the TBI Team: Thank you for your support and effort since our re-opening. We’ve loved seeing the hard work many of you have put in over the break. And for those who are yet to return, we can’t wait to see you down at the gym soon!

All We Do is Win, Win, Win…


Equally as important as keeping our eyes on the prize, is appreciating our progress along the way. To help us reflect on our successes and celebrate those of others, we will be featuring ‘wins’ from our TBI Community each month. These wins celebrate progress, no matter how big or small, on any personal goal – fitness or otherwise.

Name: Ben Johnston

It’s been a killer time training with the boxers. It’s a win because the Boxing Fighters are showing big improvements and starting to work together as a better unit.
