Looking for a way to keep fighting fit and healthy whilst at home?
At The Ring, we believe that boxing is a great way to manage any stress or anxiety you might be feeling. This release of tension is what makes boxing the perfect workout during these uncertain times. And, with many of us unable to visit indoor gym locations since the start of the pandemic, boxing is the perfect sport to start at home.
Boxing is a sport which can be performed almost anywhere, be it working on your technique through shadowboxing or purchasing basic equipment such as boxing gloves and a bag to create a mini home gym for yourself.
Anyone can begin to learn boxing with a few simple tools and there’s so many incredible resources out there for you to learn how to master boxing at home.
Read on to find out how you can start boxing from the comfort of your own home:
No Equipment Needed
The beauty of boxing is that anyone can do a beginners boxing workout from home using just your bodyweight, no bags or gloves required.
You can learn the fundamentals of the sport by working on basic punches, combos and drills all whilst getting in a cardio and strength workout – which is beneficial for both your mind and body.
Training and practising boxing techniques without equipment or an opponent is known as shadow boxing. All you need is some space to move around, and, if you want, a mirror to keep an eye on your form.
Keep your practice up and you’ll be ready to return to our indoor classes as soon as we reopen.

Track your progress
Whilst boxing from home, it’s a great idea to track your progress. It can keep you motivated and help you to see that you’re improving your skills over time.
Decide what you want to track, whether that’s your heart rate, calories, or maybe achieving one more push up per week. Use a wearable device such as an Apple Watch or a FitBit and see the needle move over time.
We understand that you might be feeling worried or anxious during these times, and that’s why there’s never been a better time to ‘glove up’ and start boxing…from home! Know that these times are making you stronger and unleash the fighter within by training boxing at home. We’re in this together.
