What is Fit Boxing

What do I need to practice Fit Boxing?
For a Fit Boxing workout it is important to have the appropriate clothing and accessories, whether you are training in the gym or at home.
Boxing fit gloves are needed to protect the hands and avoid injuries, these must be small, light, protective but not bulky. You can also use MMA gloves or bag gloves,the latter only if you are already trained, as the weight is slightly higher than the specific ones from fit boxing. Some personal trainers only wear boxing bands to protect the joints of the hand, in this case, you have to hit the bag more lightly as there is no padding to cushion the blow.
As for clothing, even if the boxing fit does not have a specific one, it is recommended to wear something comfortablethat allows you to make wide movements with your arms and legs without difficulty. The same goes for shoes,there are no specifics for Fit Boxing training but it is good to choose a cushioning model, able to preserve the joints of the feet.
