Hatton Boxing has been appointed the nominated supplier for all boxing equipment and training by leading franchise énergie Fitness
Hatton Boxing has entered into a new partnership with énergie Fitness that will see the UK’s market leading fitness franchise group introduce Hatton Boxing equipment and training across its nationwide franchise network. As a nominated supplier, Hatton Boxing – one of the UK’s leading brands in boxing training, education and equipment – will provide equipment including gloves, pads and bags for énergie Fitness facilities to deliver ‘boxing for fitness’ classes for their members.
This will be supported by training and programming available to gym staff via Hatton Boxing’s training arm, Hatton Academy, which teaches a multi-level ‘boxing for fitness’ programme designed to equip instructors with the technical boxing knowledge to deliver sessions without the need for contact and as part of one-on-one or group training.
Once qualified, gym staff can also access Team Hatton, a membership platform that offers regularly updated session plans and video tutorials.
For énergie Fitness, the agreement follows the recent launch of ‘thé Yard’, the franchise’s functional fitness playground designed to diversify its gym offering and change the way in which its members train. The new agreement will provide access to Hatton Boxing equipment and training to support classes including Fighting FIT and Double HIIT, as part of thé Yard’s group exercise provision.
For those énergie franchises without thé Yard, Hatton Boxing has created a custom-fitted studio space for the delivery of ‘boxing for fitness’ activities on a personal training and/or class basis for areas as small as 10sqm.
Franchisees will also be able to retail official Hatton Boxing equipment and accessories to members.
On the new agreement, Ian Rushbury, head of fitness, training and innovation at énergie Fitness, commented: “With the sport flourishing in the UK and the increasing demand for boxing as a fitness tool in the gym, we are delighted to partner with Hatton Boxing and to offer its state-of-the-art equipment and training across our franchises.
“We pride ourselves on working with the best suppliers across all areas of our business and Hatton Boxing is just that; this is a partnership that will provide a real USP for our franchises and one that will help us to create inspiring, exciting environments for our members to train in.”
Jon Eade, managing director of Hatton Boxing, said: “We are really excited to join forces with énergie Fitness as our next step into the wider gym and fitness market. “We have seen boxing become an essential in workouts in gyms across the country and new concepts such as ‘thé Yard’ are proof of its relevance in a group exercise environment. This is a fantastic opportunity for Hatton Boxing and one that we believe will offer significant benefits to énergie Fitness members and its growing network of franchises!”
