Ricky Hatton’s training academy gains Active IQ recognition

The Hatton Academy – the training arm of Hatton Boxing which was founded by four-time world boxing champion Ricky Hatton – has had its courses professionally recognised.

Fitness and leisure qualification body Active IQ awarded the recognition for the academy’s Boxing Fundamentals and Advanced Boxing courses, which are run by master trainers.

The courses teach fitness professionals ways to incorporate boxing techniques, drills and combinations into one-on-one and group exercise sessions.

Professional recognition is awarded to training programmes that meet Active IQ’s standards in content and delivery methods.

“Over the past few years boxing for fitness has grown massively in popularity. Teaching trainers and delivering boxing sessions to clients comes with responsibility so it’s important that we have the right courses in place that teach fitness professionals the correct skills to deliver boxing in a safe way,” said business development manager for Active IQ, Tad Chapman.

Jon Eade, Hatton Academy training and education director, added: “We want everyone that enrols with Hatton Academy to not only leave with the technical knowledge that they need to deliver boxing for fitness sessions, but feel inspired and motivated to learn more, and share this enthusiasm with their clients, and today’s announcement further cements our position as the number one provider of boxing for fitness training.”
