I started at Denning Boxing gym in 2009 and began in the BoxFit classes. I was nervous when I attended my first class because it was at a new gym, but that feeling past after my first session and since then I have built my fitness to the best its ever been and I am now confident and capable of taking on any fitness challenge. 12 months ago I joined the XtremeFit class and my body has faced a whole new level of intense training but I have loved every minute of it and I can certainly see the results of all my hard work. Jodie and Pete at Denning Boxing & Fitness Gym offer the whole package, from providing technical assistance with boxing, to fitness programs and even help with nutrition and weight loss monitoring. The team at Denning Boxing & Fitness Gym are a huge support and everyone encourages each other to achieve their fitness goals, no matter what your fitness level is and I certainly wouldn’t be as fit or as healthy as I am now without them.
Hey Pete… I’ve just about completed my first year at the gym and would like to thank you and Jodes for all you have done.. I’ve achieved , with BoxFit and XtremeFit , a level of fitness and reached goals I couldn’t have imagined 12 months ago. It’s been a lot of hard work but also a lot of fun . I look forward to it every week and am disappointed if I miss a session. There is a real team spirit at the gym and I’ve met some wonderful people. Thanks again guys I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you and the gym to anybody wanting to challenge themselves… cheers muz
Dear Coach and Jodie,
Wanted to share something really unexpected with you. I’ve been training at your gym for 2.5 years. The fitness improvements and weight loss have been expected. The tremendous inner strength I’ve developed has been the unexpected result I wanted to share with you. I’m talking soul deep strength, much more deeper …than just my physical core. Never before have a been through such a rough soul testing time. No-one is more surprised than me to find I have this inner strength now. It’s never been there before in years gone by when I needed it. Who knew that all this training I’ve been doing extended to my spirit, deep inside to my very life force. I can’t thank you both enough. Really, it’s people like you that show you really care and that I’m not just another gym customer. And that’s the reason I’ll keep coming back.
Some days I am more motivated than others. Some days I might second guess my strength and abilities. One thing I can rely on for sure is that when you are putting me through my paces at our Personal Training sessions is that you will push me beyond what I thought was my limits to make sure I have tried my hardest and reap the rewards. Your training methods have shown me how to push through physically and mentally both at the gym and through my stressful working day. Thanks Pete, Jodie and Michael for your never ending, sometimes gruelling, but always positive sessions. I enjoy each one of them.
Over 3 years ago I joined Denning Boxing & Fitness Gym. Its really hard for me to look back on this before shot as I cant believe how overweight I was. But now all I can see is what I have achieved. Not only have I lost over 15kg Pete and Jodie have pushed and seen me achieve goals I thought I never could do. Pete offered me nutritional plans and endless amounts of support. Thank you both so much!
3 years ago I started at not only a new gym but a new and great change to my lifestyle.
I was always active when I was younger, but since leaving school I found that juggling a sporting team and work was too much.
I then joined the Denning Boxing & Fitness Gym. Since then my fitness has improved immensely and I have pushed myself to some incredible boundaries.
I am so proud of not only the physical strength that I have gained but also the mentality strength that I have gained while being at the gym.
The Denning Boxing & Fitness Gym is not only my gym but also my second family. I have met some absolutely amazing people here and have gained friendships that will last a lifetime, it holds one incredible package. I encourage everyone who reads this to give it a go.
For the past twelve months Denning Boxing & Fitness Gym has been my home away from home and has become my second family. Since becoming a member of the gym I have been satisfied with every work out. The positive attitude, friendliness of the staff, the enjoyable atmosphere and incredible results has kept me motivated to going back every week.
The staff & team at Denning Boxing & Fitness Gym always greet you with a smile and make you feel welcome, comfortable and are always supportive. They offer all their members fitness programs, boxing techniques, nutrition advice and weight loss support.
Throughout my journey I have pushed myself to some incredible limits, all thanks to the endless support and encouragement from the team. I have been able to increase my fitness level, weight loss and muscle tone but most importantly, I have begun to live a healthier lifestyle, increased my self-confidence and have also gained friendships which will last a lifetime!
Becoming a member of the gym has been one of the best decisions of my life. I can’t thank Pete, Jodie and the team enough for making my experience so enjoyable. I wouldn’t be as fit and proud of myself if it wasn’t for you guys. I look forward to continuing my journey with you and achieving my goals.
I’d like to encourage all those who read this to come and join the team! You definitely won’t be disappointed. All fitness levels are welcome and results are amazing!
For just over 3 years I have been going to Denning Boxing Gym. I have always worked out and I have tried everything from the standard gym, boot camp to assorted classes which usually ended in boredom. Since joining I haven’t looked back, the programmes give you a complete body workout and vary each week. I started off in the box fit classes then when my partner kept hearing how much I was enjoying it he wanted to start doing the personal training sessions together, so now we motivate and encourage each other which has been great. I have recently started the XtremeFit class as well which is pushing my body even further and giving me another challenge. Dan has lost 12kg since starting and has noticed a big difference in his fitness and toning. I have increased my fitness, toning and maintained my weight and we have both pushed ourselves further than we thought possible and now we are starting to compete in triathalon legs all thanks to Pete and Jodie’s training, motivation and support.
Denning Boxing Gym provides an assortment of programmes from competitive boxing, mixed classes, personal training and kids classes for all fitness levels and ages with continued support to help you reach your goals. Where better to train than with a fully qualified coach who has trained multiple title winning fighters.
I would encourage anyone to come and give it a go.
“I regard my health and fitness as a really important part of my life. For a number of years I have been a part of the Denning Boxing Gym and have found that they provide me with the opportunities that support my ongoing goals to be the best I can. The staff and crew that attend are just GREAT PEOPLE. I have made some lifetime friends and have so much fun, as well as keeping really fit. Its a great place to be.”

I joined Denning Boxing & Fitness Gym 3.5 years ago and it’s one of the best decisions I have made.
I’m in my mid 40’s and I have always been active with different sporting activities but have not achieved the great results that I have gained from BoxFit, in terms of weight loss, overall body toning and improved fitness levels. I’m the fittest and in the best shape that I have ever been.
Pete and Jodie are fantastic and make you feel like one of the family with a welcoming smile and all the other members are so friendly. Pete and Jodie are always on hand to provide you with not only fitness advice but also nutritional advice to support you & help you achieve your individual goals.
BoxFit is great, in that it gives you an all over body workout where you can push yourself to improve your cardio or you can take it easier if your just getting started.
I never get bored of the classes as Jodie and Peter mix them up with different exercises providing everyone with additional challenges. The classes are great fun and the best stress relief activity ever, the only thing that has kept me sane after a hard day at work. BoxFit has not only assisted me physically but also provided me with mental strength and confidence to challenge myself in other areas of my life.
I recommend Denning Boxing & Fitness Gym to everyone, of all ages and all different fitness levels.
Walking into this gym was an intimidating task. Sitting down in his office chair with personally signed memorabilia around the desk I thought this guy Pete must know what he’s on about, I’ve come to the right place to get results. Then I noticed the amount of boxing trophies and medals, that’s when I began to think to myself, what am I about to get into here. A successful boxing gym, which I’d hardly heard about and took for granted and here I was thinking I was going to fit into a gym full of fit guys and girls, who could take you down in a heartbeat. How was I going mix in with them. Thankfully Pete could talk as well as train and it was then that I knew he was a great bloke and that I would be staying and that’s when the fun really began….
New people, new training and a boxing background makes for a daunting combination when trying to break out of your comfort zone. I started training in the BoxFit classes a little over a year ago and quickly found that even to my expectations I was so unfit. The friendly atmosphere of the gym and the fact that everyone is in the same boat help to overcome this initial period. But after a few weeks of dedication and listening to Pete and Jodie, I was a lot more comfortable and found that I was pushing myself rather than the exercises pushing me.
My diet changed considerably, and I lost a lot of healthy weight (8kg), even though I was eating more food. Consultation with Pete in regards to a nutrition plan is great as well as learning the best foods to eat before and after sessions to achieve your desired results.
The introduction of XtremeFit to the gym brought another level of intensity and fitness. A real dedicated group of people has been formed in respect to XtremeFit and is great for anyone with an advanced level of fitness to take that next step.
Also, I have recently joined the boxing team which is another level of fitness altogether. I have started getting into the ring sparring and am getting ready for my first fight, I didn’t expect to get to this point at all in my wildest dreams. But seeing the boys box and the taste you get, gives you a hunger that only goes away when you step in a ring. Apart from getting blood noses, winded and almost knocked off my feet, boxing has done wonders for my confidence and I have made some really close friends. Not everyone in the Boxing class ‘gets in the ring’, it is optional.
I recommend Denning Boxing Gym to anyone and everyone, from all fitness levels. If you want to break out of your comfort zone and learn a lot about yourself, this is the place to be. A great group of people, great staff and top notch facilities are all there, just bring some dedication and the will to attain your desired results and the rest will be taken care of, trust me. Everyone, from BoxFit, XtremeFit and Boxing, are all there to do better for themselves and are there to help every person achieve there goals in a team effort.
I want to take this opportunity to personally thank Peter and Jodie for all the work, effort and dedication they have put into me. Without them I would have missed this opportunity in my life and to count them and the gym as part of my family. Thanks guys.
I am a 44 year old business owner, wife and mother of 4 children aged 23,22,20 and 11. I have always been a very active person but as I was always busy I was reluctant to dedicate myself to any gyms, therefore my fitness was at my lowest.
I started at Denning Boxing & Fitness Gym 2 years ago and well… I have never looked back. From the moment you enter the gym you feel like a big part of their team. Everybody is so welcoming and the encouragement from them all is amazing. Pete and Jodie are so professional and dedicated to all your want and needs. They have both helped me transform my body, but it’s my fitness level that has increased immensely. I’m so much more fitter, focused and committed to pushing my body to the extreme and I am stronger mentally and physically.
Pete and Jodie’s encouragement and support in and out of the classes has helped me achieve the best that I can be. I have met wonderful friends through the classes and they have all become such a important part in my life. I recommend any of the classes to anyone if you want a life changing experience and so much more.
Please give it a go. By the way they all call me Mumsie.
I first started at Denning Boxing & Fitness Gym about 5 months ago, after a long stint at some of the regular gyms around the area, i was finding that performing the same weight training, day after day was having not many lasting effects on my desired weight and fitness levels and had actually gained weight. I first heard of Pete and Jodie after hearing an advert on the radio, i thought that might be a bit of fun and decided to give them a go! After about 15 minutes into my first Boxfit session i was gone! I quickly realized that the training that i had been doing in the past had nothing on the superior fitness levels required for boxing.
Since my first training session i am so glad that i stayed and persisted and now Denning Boxing & Fitness Gym has become my lifestyle, i have met so many friendly people and have lost 15kg in the short time i have been attending regular classes and PT’s, and can never seeing myself going anywhere else! Pete and Jodie have been fantastic and helped changed my entire life. I am a FIFO worker and work a 2 and 1 roster, so Pete and Jodie have even shown me what i need to do when i am away to maintain my weight loss and fitness levels, i forgot to mention (conveniently) i am over 40 years old, and i feel the best i have felt in years, and it goes to show no matter your age or fitness levels, Pete and Jodie can certainly guide you on the right path to success! ( even for an old boy!)
I first stepped into Denning Boxing & Fitness Gym September 2012. I was 100kg and what I today called a ‘wanna be’ boxer with one fight, one loss and a colourful background. Upon moving to the south west I had the choice of two gyms and by random election I walked through Denning Boxing Gym’s door. On my first night I had full intentions on keeping to myself and getting back into that ring was my only focus.
All the Denning Boxing Gym family will tell you, any one with that plan is doomed to fail. After a few weeks I was befriended by the then soon to be Australian Champion Baz Wallace and began finding it hard to not feel the warmth and comradery the fight team offered. After two months of an intense training regime consisting of two sessions per day, my first fight for the gym and first fight in over two years had arrived. I was so nervous and I didn’t want to let my team mates and new coach down.
I won by 2nd round KO. I’ve never won anything before, nothing as positive as this.
My coach Peter Stokes has taught me that as long as you work hard, make sacrifices and have heart you can always win, even if you lose, that’s our gym’s mentality, give 100% and you can’t go wrong. Since that November night I’ve won two state titles in the super heavy weight division and am on an undefeated winning streak, all of which I entirely thank to Pete, his style of coaching along with the gym’s atmosphere has released a monster, in a good way 🙂
Peter Stokes and Jodie Cross are both professional, hard working and dedicated to each member of the club, from us fighters to all the BoxFit, XtremeFit and Personal Training teams.
In my short time at the gym I have gained close life lasting friendships. I have been given a positive and professional new lifestyle that keeps me fit, healthy, hungry and free, but most of all a brother and a sister I would march to hell and back for.
With my name and reputation on the line I recommend to anyone out there who is simply wanting a new healthy lease on life or wants to better their life like myself, to go and see Pete and Jodie. They’ve made me a champion inside and outside the ring.
