Originating as a combat sport that’s been practised since before the time of ancient Greece, boxing has become a hugely popular form of exercise with a range of benefits - both physical and mental.
Although there are some similarities, boxing for fitness differs from boxing as a professional sport. Generally, when people box for fitness, they use a punching bag or have a sparring partner to avoid physical contact that can lead to injury. Despite this, incorporating boxing into your workout routine still provides boxing’s inherent benefits. Whether you’re looking to tone up, build your endurance, reduce stress or just have fun - boxing is a great way for people of all ages to improve their fitness.

Boxing Equipment FAQs
What equipment do you need for boxing?
The boxing equipment you need will depend on the type of boxing you’re looking to do. If you want to train solo at home, then home boxing equipment like boxing bags and gloves are a must. If that’s not for you, and you want some sparring action, then gloves, protective gear, and coaching equipment may be more suited. If you’re not sure where to start, check out our Boxing Gloves Buyer's Bible to find the right boxing gloves for you.
What do I need to know before I start boxing?
As a beginner, there’s a lot you need to know before your first boxing workout - however, one of the most important things to remember is that it’s all about mindset. Boxing can be intimidating, and it’s definitely not as easy as it looks, but if you show up with an open mind and the goal of having fun and getting a great workout, you’ll quickly be able to learn everything you need to know.
