The 8 Best Punch Bag Stands

Updated: Feb 18

Want to know which are the best stands to hang your punch bag from? Read this article and find out.


If you’ve recently purchased a punch bag, because you want some of those fitness benefits that can be had from boxing training, you’ll most likely need something to hang it from.


And if your home gym hasn’t got a cast iron girder jutting across the ceiling, then you’ll have to purchase a hanger of some description.


Well if this is this be your predicament you’ve come to the right place.


When it comes to choosing a punch bag hanger there are three options:


1) Ceiling hanger
2) Wall mount hanger
3) Floor standing hanger

Neither option is better than the other. The deciding factor hinges on personal preference and/or the facility in which you plan to hang your bag.


The three types of hangers have their own positives and negatives.


For example, ceiling hangers are great because your range of movement around the bag is completely unrestricted (as long as you don’t position it too close to a wall or in a corner). But, once the hanger has been bolted in place, it is a veritable pain in the arse to move.


Wall mounts possibly offer more flexibility than ceiling hangers in terms of where they can be positioned. But again, before spending an hour or two bolting one to the wall, you’ve got to be absolutely certain the position is perfect prior to revving up the drill.


A floor standing hanger, by contrast, prohibits free movement on account of the frame (obviously). However, they can be moved at the drop of a hat. Also, depending on the hanger you select, it could house a whole host of pugilistic playthings: speed balls and reflex bags – to name but two.


So, to satisfy the three possible preferences, a range of the best hangers have been selected: the first two are ceiling and wall hangers and the following six are floor standing. All of the hangers that feature within this article satisfy the following criteria:


· Retain 4 or more stars
· Has received reviews
· Are constructed from high-quality materials
· Are built for the rigours of boxing training


AQF Heavy Duty Punch Bag Wall Bracket (£29.99)


Product Overview (click image for availability)

  • Very well rated over 300 reviews with 4.5 stars

  • All-weather AQF Heavy Duty Wall Bracket

  • Solid powder coated 16 gauge steel construction

  • Includes wall fixings, D-shackle and printed assembly instructions

  • Can hold up to 60 kg and 17 Inch / 43 cm from wall to end of bracket


This is a happy-go-lucky hanger from the good people at AQF. Yes it’s cheap. Yes it’s cheerful. But, according to those reviews, and there are many, it does a pretty damn good job – at supporting a punch bag.


This ceiling hanger has been designed to withstand the weight of a 60kg cow carcass. That’s comforting to know. The last thing you want is for the ceiling hanger to detach whilst you’re wailing away.


If you’re just after a sturdy hook to hang a punch bag from, perhaps to fill that unutilised corner in your home gym, then AQF’s heavy duty wall bracket is perfect. And if it isn’t anything but perfect AQF promises to give you a full refund. Can’t say fairer than that.



RDX Heavy Boxing Punch Bag Wall Bracket (£40)

Product Overview (click image for availability)

  • Very well rated over 300 reviews with 4 stars

  • All-weather compact & heavy duty gym-quality punch bag wall bracket

  • Made from welded 16-gauge powder coated Iron

  • The reinforced construction holds up to 60 KGS

  • Boxed set includes D Shackle, assembly instructions and all necessary wall fixings

  • Treated with special red oxide anti-rust formulation



RDX can always be relied on to produce high-quality functional training equipment. Their heavy bag ceiling hanger is no exception.


With over 300 reviews it still retain 4 stars. Many of those customers have commented favourably on the ‘sturdiness’ and ‘longevity’ of this ceiling hanger.


As with AQF’s hanger RDX’s can comfortably support a 60kg bag. However, they’ve slightly advanced their product by coating it in what they call a ‘special red oxide anti-rust formulation’.


This affords you the option of fixing the hanger outside without the worry that it’ll rust-up inside a week.



Century Heavy Bag Stand (£122)

Product Overview (click image for availability)

  • Nearly 5 stars after over 200 reviews

  • Designed specifically for martial arts workouts with training bags to practice a variety of strikes and kicks.

  • Constructed of 3" tubular steel with three weight pegs for stability.

  • Shock absorbing design keeps frame stationary during vigorous workouts.

  • Designed to hold up to 100lb.



This is the first of the heavy bag floor stands. Century offers the most reasonably priced product. And for a little over £120 you will receive a box standard steel frame on which you can hang a punch bag. But if that’s all you want then this stand is perfect.


Other features include protruding pegs at the corner of each support. These pegs enable you to load weights (barbell discs) onto the stand so as to prevent it from moving around during ‘vigorous workouts’.


Century’s floor stand can support a bag of about 45kg. Though this doesn’t sound a particularly impressive load capacity, compared to ceiling hangers, it isn’t far off the upper maximum of the majority of floor stands – without paying stupid money.



XN8 Free Standing Punch Bag Stand (£149.99)

Product Overview (click image for availability)

  • 4 stars with nearly 40 reviews

  • Xn8 free standing punch bag stand is manufactured using premium quality steel for making it durable and robust. Having a sturdy base that stabilizes the boxing platform for letting you practice your new boxing moves conveniently.

  • 40 kg is the maximum load that this punch bag can bear.

  • Comes with an adjustable speedball platform and double end speedball that can be adjusted by stretching or losing the top or bottom portion of the string. Our station for boxing is 7ft in height.



This is a bit more than just a punch bag stand. But we’ll get to that. Firstly, let me tell you about the boring stuff.


The frame from which your bag will swing is constructed from premium quality steel. Thus ensuring that it won’t cave in when go Rocky Marciano.


XN8’s stand is designed to support a maximum load of 40kg. However, though a little on the light side, this weight capacity still exceeds that of most heavy bags – which range from 25 to 35kg.


Now for the more exotic features.


In addition to the standard stuff described above, this floor stand also sports a speedball station and – AND! – reflex ball mount. Together these additional features transform a one-dimensional piece of boxing equipment into an inclusive, dynamic training tool.



BBE PUNCHBAG STAND (£159.99)

Product Overview (click image for availability)

  • Nearly 5 stars after over 45 reviews

  • Comes with an easy release fold flat mechanism for easy storage after use

  • Black powder coat finish prevents rusting

  • Three fixed anchor points with protruding stabilising pins

  • Maximum load capacity: 30kg (66lbs)




BBE’s floor stand is a simple, no-nonsense piece of kit that does exactly what it’s designed to do: support a boxing bag.


Perhaps its one defining feature is the ‘easy release fold flat mechanism’. This (obviously) allows you to fold it away after use. Depending on how much free room your home gym has this could be quite a useful feature.


Beyond the fold flat mechanism, you get nothing more than what Century offer – and their floor stand is £40 cheaper. Also, BBE’s punch bag hanger has a maximum load capacity of 30kg, making this a bit of a lightweight.


To finish on a positive, this floor stand has received lots of positive reviews and has unanimously been awarded 5 stars.

Everlast’s single-station heavy bag stand is by far the best rated in its product class. Over 600 customers felt the need to express their opinions publicly. And the vast majority commented favourably on its superior build quality and competency in fulfilling the role of punch bag stand.


So what do you get for £200?


Some powder-coated steel tubing that, when assembled, which apparently is easy, will form an apex structure upon which you can hang a bag.


And that’s it.


The max load capacity of Everlast’s punch bag stand is 45kg.



Gyronetics® Free-Standing Boxing Station with Punch Bag and Punching Ball (£219)

  • 61 reviews and still retaining 4 stars

  • Gyronetics’s free-standing boxing station includes a punching bag and speed ball.

Gyronetics’s punch bag stand is a step up both in quality and functional utility. Built to endure the daily grind of a ‘professional studio’ this stand will feel like it’s on permanent vacation in a home gym. Unless, of course, it finds its way to Tyson Fury’s home gym!


As well as being constructed from superior quality materials it boasts a maximum load capacity of a jaw dropping 100kg. (Not that you’ll be able to find a bag of that weight to test it.)


In addition, Gyronetics’s floor stand includes a speed ball station and punch bag. So soon as the tranny van driver dumps it on your doorstep you could have it assembled and be boxing before he gets down the road.



SehrGo ZEHNHASE Foldable Boxing Bag Stand (£239.99)

Product Overview (click image for availability)

  • 5 stars after 9 reviews

  • Premium material: bracket made of durable, wear-resistance steel that is both strong and sturdy.

  • Adjustable height: the sandbag rack height can be adjusted. The adjustment range is 48cm

  • The stand can be easily folded.

  • Suitable for home gym.

  • Stable and firm frame ensures that it will withstand rigorous boxing training.



SehrGo boast a premium quality floor stand that is built to stand firm against the onslaught of even a seasoned pugilist.


The frame is constructed from industrial-grade steel and the bracket (the bit the bag hangs from) is made from ‘durable, wear-resistant’ materials. That’s good to know as this is the first component of any punch bag hanger to degrade. I’ve worn out a handful in my time.


Besides superior build quality SehrGo’s floor stand offers little else.
