A BURNS Beach family will open a boxing club that offers classes for all ages, including mums and bubs, in Butler this weekend.

It’s been a busy year for Mick and Claire Hale, who have also welcomed the birth of their third child since moving to Perth.

Prior to that, they had been coaching and competing in amateur boxing in Wickham, in the North West Pilbara Region, since 2012.

Mr Hale has been coaching boxing for more than 20 years, and his 40-year-old wife had their son Clay six months ago, joining daughter Milli (10) and son Alfie (8).

“Having the three children and juggling a FIFO husband and our own business, it’s inspired us to provide affordable and accessible boxing for the northern suburbs which will promote amateur boxing and fitness for families,” Mrs Hale said.

They will open the PEAK 1 Boxing Club gym on Amesbury Loop this weekend.

“We have great 200sq m space and we’re opening on Saturday, November 24 with a free launch day training session at 9am,” Mrs Hale said.

The director said the gym would suit people looking to get fit through boxing training or those who wanted to try competitive amateur boxing.

She said the sport was also good for mothers trying to get fit, and self-defence for adults and children.

“We have training for everyone whether they want to get fit or compete, with mums and bubs training every morning, kids and youth training after school and three training sessions a night and Saturday mornings,” she said.
