Fusion Health and Wellbeing have recently been successful in a bid to be able to build an extension to their boxing facilities. This means they now have a new boxing area and training ring that services members can make great use of.
Fusion work with people who aren’t just interested in boxing, but in keeping fit on a general level as well. The centre has hundreds of members and it was fantastic to meet some of them, along with centre manager Wayne Bloy, when I attended the opening ceremony of Fusion’s extension. It was great to be given the honour of cutting the ribbon to mark the occasion and to see how busy it was.
When people take up boxing, they are required to get an annual certificate from their doctor, saying that they are physically well enough to box in the first place. When attending the opening event, there were queues of people lined up waiting to get their certificate so that they may take up boxing, which was brilliant to see. Men and women, young and old were lining up to receive their certificates, and it’s great to see so many different people take an active interest in their physical and mental health.
Since their opening five years ago, Fusion has worked with over 1,500 people in supporting their fitness. Fusion is always looking for new people to join, so if you’d like to improve your health, want to volunteer at the centre or wish to learn more about what Fusion offers, then do get in touch with them. Fusion is such a positive organisation and it’s really refreshing to be able to see what steps they’re taking in expanding their mission.
