I am following your online videos, what boxing equipment will I need and will I be able to use the same stuff at a gym?
Question received from Kate

Thanks for using Sneak Punch.
Boxing equipment. Following the Sneak Punch TV online videos, you should be able to get away practicing the earlier videos without any boxing equipment and going through the movements, just make sure you don’t put too much effort into the punching or over extend the arms, as this can damage the elbows.
In the later episodes, the combinations will become more complex and I will be demonstrating bag combinations which you can practice at home or with a partner. So my advise would be practice the early techniques and see if you enjoy them, if you do, then maybe buy some equipment.
All you will need is a pair of gloves, some wraps, a punch bag (if you want) or a partner with some pads (also optional) and a skipping rope. It is not massively expensive and apart from the bag and pads you can re-use all this equipment if you decide to join a boxing or a fight training club.
I hope this helps and thanks again for the question.
Best wishes and good luck!
