Boxing Classes: What to Bring
A simple guide to the basics you’ll need to enjoy your boxing session
Some handy pointers – whether you’re a complete beginner or have been to boxing classes or clubs before.
If you’re on a tryout session and don’t have your own gloves I can provide spares – please book with me first.
Check out my guide to boxing gloves for advice on what type of glove is best for you.
While these are optional – especially on a tryout session – I strongly advise you to get some fairly quickly to protect your hands.
Check out my guide to boxing hand wraps for advice on the different types available.
If you’d like to spar please make sure you turn up with appropriate sparring gloves. Gents: 16oz, Ladies: 14oz please. NOTE: Damaged or split gloves, ‘Bag gloves’ and MMA style mitts are not suitable for sparring.
Please bring a pre-fitted mouth guard if you intend to spar during your session.
I have several headguards, but you’re welcome to bring your own.
If you like to use one for sparring, please bring it.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
“As the newest member of a group I was a bit nervous going in as a complete novice. I shouldn’t have been – Dean and the other members of the group have been great. It’s been so much fun – I’ve learned a lot and my fitness has really improved. Highly recommended.”
“I’ve been training with Dean for 12 months now and I love his sessions. When I started I was very unfit and had no boxing experience. He varies the sessions enough to keep them challenging but incredibly fun with a great mix of technical and fitness. I would highly recommend to anyone of any ability and fitness especially if you want something to help you de-stress!”
“I absolutely love my group sessions… motivation levels are high, the training is focused, and I’ve seen big changes in my fitness levels, agility and mental well-being. A brilliant and positive experience.”
