Essential Boxing Equipment for Beginners

March 07, 2017

You’re fortunate that you’ve picked a hobby that doesn’t put you out of pocket to get started.

The following items make up the list of essential boxing equipment. Beginners don’t need anything else – assuming you own comfortable clothes – and you can add to your training arsenal in time.

  • Boxing Gloves
  • Hand Wraps
  • Water Bottle
  • Training Bag
  • Mouth Guard (Sparring only)
  • Groin Guard or Chest Protector (Sparring only)


Boxing gyms usually provide focus mitts, punch bags, speed balls, head gear, and skipping ropes for communal use.

If you’ve got cash to blast, it would be better spent on your training: Joining a quality boxing gym, private boxing lessons, or a good home boxing course.

That being said, if you’re learning to box at home, you will need some extra equipment or you’ll be limited to shadowboxing, running, and bodyweight exercises.
