Firstly, we’ll consider the basic boxing kit you’ll need to get going. At a minimum, a boxing gym requires three items of equipment:

1: Boxing gloves
2: A boxing punch bag
3: A wall mount or freestanding heavy bag stand

If you purchased these three basic items of equipment, you’ll be able to develop boxing fitness, diversify your training routine, improve punching technique, and bust stress. It might come as surprise but building a home boxing gym is relatively cheap. The three items listed above, if you were to buy budget equipment, would cost less than £250.
