Sarah Trevett from Miguel's Boxing and Fitness Gym says they've seen a massive surge in interest from female customers:
"The old macho image of boxing has been shaken during 2012, with Nicola Adams winning the first women's boxing gold medal for Team GB in the Olympics.....Around half of the trainers on the team are women, and there are two women-focused fitness classes a week. Even when classes aren't exclusively female orientated, women are constantly active at the gym, whether involved in personal training sessions, classes or working out on the bags and the gym by themselves."
