About 10 Count Boxing CIO
10 Count Boxing CIO is a registered Charity
Charity number: 1191711
Ten Count started by accident over 7 years ago, originally a tiny industrial unit with a few bags and a boxing ring for owners Lee and Max to train in. When people repeatedly stuck their heads around the door and asked if they would train them they decided to offer classes and over time the gym grew.
Today we are a registered charity which exists to support the local community. We hold a fully equipped gym with a range of affordable fitness classes for competitive boxers, recreational boxers, youths of all ages including classes for people with disabilities, SEN conditions and those in alternative education.
We have a full size boxing ring, matted area, punch bags, pads, medicine balls, boxing gym with all the facilities you need and not a single piece of equipment that you don't.
Physical fitness is important for everyone and regular exercise is also vital for a persons mental health. Boxing is a great way to engage people to channel their energy into productive activity, build confidence in socialising and learning the many techniques and advantages of the sport. Especially since the pandemic has left many isolated and feeling low, having a program like this will help adjust focus and encourage activity.
Our objectives are:
The promotion of community participation in healthy recreation, for the benefit of the inhabitants of stoke-on-trent and the surrounding areas by the provision of facilities for amateur boxing.
2. To provide or assist in the provision of facilities in the interest of social welfare for recreation or other leisure time occupation of individuals residing in stoke-on-trent and the surrounding areas who have the need of such facilities by reason of their age, infirmity or disability, financial hardship or social circumstances with the object of improving their conditions of life.
We maintain these objectives by being one of the cheapest (if not the cheapest) gym in Stoke and its surrounding areas with no commitment and we have been since we first opened.
We provide a fun and varied list of activities for every person aged 4 to 104 no matter your situation.
We created a gym we could be proud of, that would function as an economic draw for the Stoke on Trent people, that would make boxing and exercise available for everyone in the community.
We seek to engage people in the love of the gym and the understanding of how good physical health is linked to good mental health. That boxing is not just hitting a bag but a full and total body workout, learning strategy and technique, building confidence and so much more.
Ten Count is open to all. The gym can be hired by the hour for clubs, classes or personal training.
The rules here are simple, attitudes stay outside, hard work goes on inside and everyone is equal.
