Today as part of our ‘Looking Forward’ parent and carer group here at Cerebral Palsy Midlands (CPM), we had the pleasure of welcoming a lovely woman called Nora Ma, founder of ‘Envolve Wellness’, to our centre and she have us a taster session in boxerciSEN. BoxerciSEN is a simple boxing class that works with both children and adults who have disabilities. 
 
Boxersice is a form of physical exercise which is based on a sequence of movements that are tailored to each person’s needs and range of movement and ability. Nora was fantastic in her teaching and her approach to the people here at CPM, she could adapt her techniques and style to each individual’s needs. 
 
Our session mainly focused on upper body strength and self-defence but it gave us a great insight into how having a BoxerciSEN class here in our centre would benefit the health and well-being of our clients. I think that boxercise is great because it really allows people to express themselves freely through exercise, I also think it’s also helpful for a person’s concentration and general wellbeing. Personally, I think that it gives people a real sense of pride in what they can achieve, trying boxerciSEN has also given me the confidence to try other activities in the future. 
Here are a few words our service users about the boxercise session: 
 
Margaret Green said: “It was great I really enjoyed hitting the pads.” 
JP said: “I felt really happy.” 
Vicky Lilly said “I really enjoyed been able to stretch my hands and fingers freely.”
