Hustle Boxing Free Session
Potts Point's Hustle Boxing is running a free 50-minute class on R U OK? Day to remind people that having meaningful conversations with mates and loved ones can help save lives.
The session will be run by Hustle Boxing’s head trainers and R U OK? Day ambassadors Dan Conn and Ellice Whichello. Hustle says they're working with the suicide prevention charity to encourage people to reach out to a friend who may be struggling and to start a conversation with someone about the mental health benefits of exercise.
Hustle Boxing was set up by Australian wellness coach and boxer Whichello and former NRL footballer Conn and lead trainer Andrew Pap. The full-body workouts happen in a dark, neon-lit purpose-built studio and incorporate boxing on aqua bags (to absorb the shock of each punch and protect the wrist), resistance bands and weights.
The state-of-the-art facilities include 65-inch LED screens to cue each move and a $90,000 sound system.
The 6pm session is now sold out but there's one at 7.20am too. It's free but spots are limited so bookings are essential. Guests are asked to make a donation to the Australian suicide prevention charity in return for the class. Reservations can be made here.
