There are numerous benefits and reasons why investing in an at-home boxing system or gym would be a great opportunity. Regardless if you are a seasoned pro or a boxing newbie, at-home gyms are a great place to start to truly transform your fitness journey. 

Building a home gym in a smaller space is one that will take some planning and creativity, especially if you live in an apartment, condo, studio, or a smaller house, but it can be done and you can still reach your fitness goals. 

We’ve put together some tips on how to create a FightCamp home gym in a limited amount of space. 

Tips for Setting Up FightCamp in a Small Space

Think Creatively and Combine

When living in a smaller-sized living space, you have to get creative in making an at-home gym work. Sometimes that means taking an already existing space and sharing it with your gym space. Have an extra couple of square feet in the dining room or home office? Try setting up your bag in the corner of the room. Another option is to set up your home gym in your bedroom. Yes, there are actually quite a few benefits in doing so, too! 

Make the Illusion of Space

Add a full-sized standing mirror (either leaning or mounted on the wall) in your workout space to be able to fully fine-tune your striking technique and also “add in” some additional perceived space. 

Minimal Materials

Living in a small space, every square inch of free space is precious. One of the best things you can do from a material collection standpoint is to keep things simple with only owning the fitness equipment you truly need. Here is our checklist for making a great, yet simple FightCamp at-home gym.

  • Free-standing heavy bag

  • Boxing gloves

  • Hand wraps

  • Jump rope

  • Yoga mat

  • Resistance bands

Create a Portable Gym

Have a spare closet with not much going on with it? Convert it into a storage space for your boxing equipment. When it's time to work out, bring your equipment into any open space, crush your workout, put it back in the closet; rinse and repeat. 

*Depending on your floor - use furniture sliders to easily transport your FightCamp standing bag between workouts

Form and Function

When considering a workout space, always think about the form and function of the space, as well as the equipment that you are going to be using. Setting up shop near a corner of the room offers you the ability to use additional space in the vertical realm. Adding shelves, hooks, and decorative storage items like baskets gives your storage opportunities with your accessory workout equipment. 

Assembling Your FightCamp Bag

One of the first things you're going to want to do is to unbox and set up your FightCamp free-standing punching bag. Check out the videos below to help walk you through the entire process.

Note: We recommend holding off on filling your base until you determine the end location of where the bag will stay.

Small Space, No Problem

Ultimately, you do not need to have tons of extra space or rooms in order to make your at-home gym work. Using the tips we outlined above, along with a little creativity and planning, you can work out even in the smallest of spaces.
