Step into the Ring… with David Haye

In March of this year, Paragon were contacted by one of our favourite clients. The brief was simple: to deliver an outstanding day time event to reward an in-house team for a brilliant start to the year!

Bored of the usual drinking culture, this group were looking for an event which promoted team building and reward, but which didn’t revolve around going to the pub.

As the company were all into their sports – and especially fitness – Paragon suggested one of our more unusual team building events: a boxing experience with the legend that is David Haye…

Former unified Cruiserweight World Champion and WBA Heavyweight Champion of the World, David ‘The Hayemaker’ Haye has had an incredible career both in and out of the boxing ring.

The team turned up to the Hayemaker HQ in Vauxhall London, where they were met by the legend himself and his training team. Once changed, they then had a (what looked to be!) pretty intense training session, with each of the team being personally coached by David Haye.

Once thoroughly warmed up and whilst the rest of the team completed exercises with his personal trainers, David took two participants into the ring, and coached them through a series of jabs and blocks.

The session was tailored to the group’s ability level, and the team finished up the experience with a gourmet meal at the 4* Park Plaza Hotel, just next door to the ring.

“What a thoroughly enjoyable day. Everyone involved was great from start to finish, and we finished up with some very nice food at the Plaza. All my guys gave great feedback… thank you!” Private Client
