My name is Traci Thorne and for my sins I’m the only female boxing coach for Crawley.
I train the 11-16 years carded and UN carded novices on a Monday Wednesday and Friday evening between 5-6.30pm.
After deciding I wanted to learn to box a few years ago and became so obsessed by my boxing I decided to go for my coaching badges.
After completing 2 years in another gym as a trainer, I took my first badge giving me the level 1badge as Assistant coach in 2010.
A year later I took my level 2 in 2011 giving me the Full Coaching Certificate.
I also completed a Boxing Non Contact Tutor Awards Certificate in 2011 which enables me to work in any school the country.
I also hold the following:
I hold a level 2 gym instruction certificate
Advanced Kettle weight Instructor
During the day I still have a full time job in recruitment!
Love training the boys at Crawley club and I get a real sense of pride and achievement as I see them progress to the next level. It’s good to put something back into the community and keeps me very grounded!
