There is nothing more I love than new equipment, which is why I was so excited to try these new to me gloves. I chose the 16 oz Star Series due to my weight and punching power. Finding a cool design on a boxing glove is hard. Most places offer basic colors and you just have to deal with it. The star design is sleek and interesting, so I look forward to putting them on. I also have the matching Star Series short sleeve rash guard, which keeps me dry and feeling good after a full day of training.
The glove itself is not bulky for being a 16 oz. The padding is dense and the glove is more fitted, making them accessible for smaller hands or wrists while also fitting larger hands like my own. The adjustable wrist strap means that it is tight and secure to your wrist unlike many other gloves that remain loose for those who have smaller wrists.
I love the design, I love the fit, I love punching in these gloves. More than that, these gloves come in at under a $30 price point, making them cheaper than some of the leading glove makers. Higher quality with a lower price is a deal that I cannot pass up.
Quality equipment, every time. Elite Sports offers workout gear that helps me perform at my best. If you are looking for quality gear and some new boxing gear, go Elite.
Warm-ups are my favorite workout clothes. They keep my muscles loose and ready for action when I have several classes back to back. Check out some of my favorite warm-ups below.
