The all new and inclusive Inverclyde Sports Centre is approaching its first anniversary this month, and is linking up with the new Largs Campus and also hosts a diverse range of community sport.
The aim of the column is to give you an idea of the different groups who are visiting the centre, and interesting events and activities taking place at the centre.
And there is no doubting that Inverclyde certainly packs a punch!
This is because the sport centre's fitness instructors are fully qualified in the Ricky Hatton boxing franchise, Hatton Boxing for Fitness. Fitness manager Duncan Liddell said: “Boxing can be perceived as ‘not for everyone’ but with these classes it combines a great cardio workout with a bit of boxing technique that everyone can master.” 
As you can see from the picture, 'News' reporter Calum Corral has also tested out the boxing facilities at the sports centre.
