The cast are taking part in weekly boxing and high intensity fitness sessions at Vulcan Boxing Club, led by boxing coach Adam Parnaby and personal trainer and professional ice hockey player Matty Davies. The group are learning some key boxing techniques as well as improving their overall fitness and stamina ahead of a physically demanding show.
Vulcan Boxing Club was launched in 2012 on the site of the former Hull Fish Trades Boxing Club. The club provides positive role models for children and young people, using the discipline of boxing to tackle anti-social behaviour, youth violence and obesity. The team set up the Vulcan Learning Centre two years later to help young people achieve their full potential and direct them towards a more positive future, using sport and recreational activities to teach the importance of respect and self-control. They also run several study programmes on health and fitness, essential maths and English classes, and they have an allotment where they teach young people how to grow and cook their own food.
