You want to start a boxing workout routine and make training part of your lifestyle, great! There are a few things you will need before you begin your exercise regimen. Here are the four (4) essentials:

1. Workout Space

You’ll need to set up a space to perform your workouts. Luckily, boxing workouts take up a minimal footprint in your home, garage, basement, or your living room. We recommend a training space that’s about 8 feet by 2 feet that you can designate for your punches and kicks.

2. Boxing Hand Wraps and Gloves

As mentioned above, boxing gloves and hand wraps are essential to any boxing workout. You can opt for traditional hand wraps or quick wraps depending on your preference. When choosing boxing gloves, read the dimensions and weight to choose the best fit for you. Here's how to determine the right boxing glove size.

With FightCamp’s technology, the small and sweatproof Punch Trackers slip right into your quick wraps and track up to 1,000 punches per minute.

3. Punching Bag

This is typically the biggest barrier for people looking to start boxing at home. You might be thinking “where can I hang a heavy bag?” Or “how do I know which boxing bag to buy?”

The answer is simple, FightCamp! We offer a free-standing punching bag that is properly weighted, easy to move, and aesthetically pleasing. Here are more ways to determine the best punching bag for you.

4. A Trainer

Choosing a trainer can be difficult, but not with FightCamp. We take the guesswork and time out of finding a professional boxing trainer.

Joining FightCamp is like having a team of elite fighters right in front of you. You can stream workouts from your TV or tablet at home and track your progress.
