About our Boxing

Boxing is so much more than just a sport; it’s so much more than just throwing a punch. Boxing is a hybrid of been a sport and a way to exercise but is great to watch and even more fun to take part in yourself. Boxing is a great exercise to perform whether your goal is to develop strength or to lose weight but there is so much more to boxing than just that. There are a massive range of health benefits which people don’t think about when it comes to boxing;

- You can improve your hand eye coordination as well as your balance

- Ease those stress levels

- Burn calories

- A fantastic cardio workout

- Increase alertness and posture

What is so great about boxing is you have full control over the complexity and this is driven from the boxing equipment you purchase to the boxing techniques which you want to test and perform. The foundations of boxing are boxing gloves and a punching bag and to be honest, that is it. From there you can pretty much venture into the world of boxing but unlike other exercise equipment like smith machines, multi-gyms and weight benches purchasing any additional boxing equipment and accessories is cheap. Cheap is great if you are wanting to test the waters to see whether boxing is for you before deciding to venture further in for more advanced and higher-priced equipment.

At exercise.co.uk, we love boxing, not because of its strength development and muscle building qualities but because of how effective and ridiculously fun and easy it is to get into, get fit and stay in shape. Boxing isn’t about exercise really; I mean, look at yoga; yes, it is a sport, but it is about health and fitness rather than build muscle and lose weight.  That is why at exercise.co.uk, we stock high-quality brands at low prices like Everlast to make sure everyone can venture and explore the world of boxing.

Why Boxing

Why boxing honestly because of the lure of the overall sport. The concentration, focus and drive you have while in the moment overrides any feeling through the intensity of the exercise.  Boxing is an intense aerobic and anaerobic workout and requires you to use both your upper and lower body muscles in unison. Through the combination of this unison, you are capable of throwing high impact punches, and because the majority of the muscles are used in a short amount of time, giving your cardiovascular and anaerobic systems to burn a massive amount of calories.

The Cost of Boxing Equipment

At exercise.co.uk, we have made sure whether you are wanting to begin your boxing journey or are looking at doing to that next step our boxing equipment is cost-effective. Setting up at home doesn’t have to be expensive, and there are a few options available for you.

You can buy the boxing gloves and punch bag as a set or individually depending on your preference. You do have the option to purchase a boxing punch bag set which will include boxing gloves, punch bag, focus pads, hand wraps, an ab wheel and a skipping rope or alternativity a boxing fitness kit depending on your goals and requirements. A boxing fitness kit includes soft boxing mittens and focus pads depending on your needs and goals.

If you decide to purchase boxing gloves individually and punch bags, there are a few things which you will need to look at. Boxing gloves come in different sizes, and weight typically displayed as ounces (oz). Usually, boxing gloves come in 12, 14 and 16-ounce weights but 8, 10 and 16-ounce gloves are available depending on your requirement.

Punch bags, on the other hand, come in 2 options;

- Heaving punch bag

- Standing Punch bag

The difference between these is that a heavy punch bag has a chain attached to the top of it, which are connected to the punch bag stand. The standing punch bag, on the other hand, has a base filled with water or sand. Choosing between a heaving punch bag which requires a punch bag stand or a standing punch bag depends on space within your home. Additionally, if you want your home fully kitted out, you can purchase a speed bag shaped like a pear designed to improve your boxing speed. These smaller pear-shaped bags develop rhythm and are a nice addition once you’ve got your teeth into some regular training and want to spice things up.
