Jade Hendon and Sharon Clifton are the creators of this unique, empowering concept of a work out.
Meeting in a boxing gym and loving the benefits of it they became great friends; They saw a gap in the fitness market for a class that combined a boxing-based workout that was non-competitive, the use of sticks and air guitars for a fun element to the class and the added niche of rock music as an alternative to usual class playlists.
They wanted easy to follow routines, so people could better concentrate on correct technique, and a class that is incredibly inclusive for all levels of fitness, women, men and children can take part feel included and empowered.
By trialing the class in a local town and being overwhelmed by great feedback and regular clients, Rock Box has now grown to a following. Classes in popular gym chain, Everlast, sell out weekly with a large waiting list. After request after request for extra classes just in the locailty, the realisation hit that this was something that could grow on an international level.
In addition to the community, Rock Box received full funding from the NHS to provide a class at a local hospital for both staff and patients as a non-medicinal type of therapy. The feedback has been incredible and hugely rewarding.
