OUNCES, SIZES AND LACES EXPLAINED
So you've decided to take up boxing and you're about to buy your first pair of boxing gloves. Happy days!! I still remember the day I got my first gloves. And the second pair. And the third... I'm not a big fan of shopping, but when it comes to sports equipment (and books), I make an exception. I also remember not having a clue about all the different sizes, weights and styles that were on offer. I found a pair I liked, only to be told by the sales guy it wasn't what I needed at all.. :( I also remember, when he gave me the ones I was looking for and I tried them on, he said: "It doesn't get any better than this". And he was right.
This was many years ago in New York City. Ever since then, I have tried a lot of other brands and every time I remember those words and how true they were. I've been using the same brand ever since and it never disappointed.
In this video I share with you some of my favourite brands, I explain what all the oz-s are all about and talk a bit about the difference between lace-up and velcro and how you can turn lace-up into velcro if that's what you want.
I hope this helps you better understand what you need and you're ready to head to the shop and get your first boxing gloves. Make sure you let me know in the comments which ones you chose and how you like them.
