Meet Ciara. She can box.
We are super excited to introduce you to Ciara Daly who is our Head of Boxing at Dellafit. What I love about Ciara is that she really “walks the talk”. Not only is she an amazing boxing coach, but she can really box. She has taken part in 22 fights. She also won a State title 2 years ago in the 60kg division.
So Ciara knows what she is doing when it comes to boxing. It is so great to have someone who is an expert teaching our Boxing for Fitness classes at Dellafit. Ciara will make sure your stance is correct. She will make sure you are holding yourself properly and that your form is looking good. Many of you will be boxing for the first time and Ciara will make sure you start off really well without getting into bad habits.
Ciara is 32 years old (younger than most of us!). She grew up in Camden. As well as being a boxing coach, she is a solicitor at the Crown Solicitor’s Office working in child protection. She lives with her partner Chris and her foster dog Deli, a lovely bull staffy.
I asked Ciara what the benefits the Dellafit crew could expect to see from boxing. She mentioned “really toned arms” (we love that!), “increased confidence” and “taking your fitness to the next level”.
What does Ciara love about boxing? She loves the physical and mental discipline which is involved. Developing toughness. Her favourite thing is helping someone get ready for a fight: both physically and mentally.
Ciara’s other interest apart from boxing and fitness is wine (something many of you will share!) Ciara has completed a basic sommelier course and loves visiting wineries and testing out her knowledge of wines and sampling what is on offer.
So if you would like to box with Ciara our classes are on Tuesday from 6.45am until 7.30am in Rushcutters Bay Park. Please let me know that you would like a spot. Be quick though. These classes are going to fill up fast. You will need to bring your own boxing gloves.
