Join this Cuban boxing training in Havana, which is renowned for producing the most successful amateur fighters in the world. You will get the rare opportunity to train with elite Cuban boxers and you will be guided by world-class trainers at the legendary Pan America Stadium, a Cuban landmark. This camp is meant to refine your technique and get you into shape. Whether you want to improve your fitness or advance your boxing skills, you will have the experience of a lifetime!
While in Cuba, you will be staying at Villa Playa Hermosa, a small beach resort of Guanabo. The three-star bungalow accommodation provides you with everything you need for your stay. The spacious rooms have television and access to the swimming pool, restaurant, and bar.
During this camp, you will be training in the Pan American Stadium, or Estadio Panamericano, Cuba’s iconic venue built to host the 1991 Pan American Games. Today, the stadium is mainly used for athletics, baseball, soccer, and as a training ground for ambitious sports students from the local university.
Don’t be fooled by the exterior of the building. Yes, it could use some paint, but the gym you will be training in has been recently renovated, giving you the equipment needed for an excellent standard of training. The other stadium facilities are also well maintained.
Besides, Cuba Boxing and Fitness are confident you will relish the opportunity to train at one of Cuba’s most famous landmarks. This boxing training program is open to both men and women, from beginners to semi-pros.
The people of Cuba treat boxing as an art form, not just a sport. Boxing is passionate and intelligent. Military-style training is combined with dance, rhythm, and salsa music. Fluid movements are matched with ambition and a cast-iron focus. It is a force to be reckoned with.
Cuban boxing programs remain some of the best on the planet, yet it is still relatively unknown among boxers. Teófilo Stevenson Lawrence, Félix Savón, José Nápoles, and Kid Chocolate are just a few of the boxing heroes to have come out of Cuba’s gyms.
Children learn to box at school. The most gifted students are selected to go to specialized schools, where they focus on honing their talents. With former champions supporting them, they devote their energy to training and preparing to become Cuba’s future Olympians.
In a country where professional sport was banned in 1962, competitive amateur boxing is still encouraged. Despite limited training resources, the quality of Cuban boxing training is second-to-none.
Your training morning session will take place between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. and involves training with Cuban students. This not only immerses you in local boxing practices, but you will also get to see a side of Cuba that other visitors simply do not have access to.
Since you will be training in the Caribbean climate, you will take a long break during the hottest part of the day and resume training from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. In the evenings, you are free to go out and explore the local beach resort of Guanabo or Havana.
This training will take place in Guanabo, a popular spot for Cubans and tourists with nightlife, places to eat, and shops with artisan crafts. Guanabo is a beach town in the Ciudad de la Habana Province of Cuba.
It is a ward located within the municipality of Habana del Este, halfway between the center of Havana and Santa Cruz del Norte, at the mouth of the Guanabo River, between the Atlantic Ocean coast and the Sierra del Canchón mountain range.
During this camp, you will be served daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner at your accommodation. Dishes will include chicken, rice, potatoes, and eggs.
Please book your flight to arrive at José Martí International Airport (HAV). Transfer from and to the airport is included. Cuba Boxing and Fitness will pick you up from the airport.
