Dubbed the Peloton of boxing, Boxx has launched the fitness world’s first smart boxing bag and smart trackers. The ultimate addition to your home gym, the trackers will help you set targets and stay motivated, while the boxing bag will help you get more out of Boxx’s sessions. Available in four colourways in a choice of two fabrics (we love the muted pink), the bag is compact and easy to move, while the trackers sync with the Boxx app to enable you to track the speed, power and direction of every punch. You can see your metrics live in class or choose to join a class with a live leaderboard.

Try the Solidarity bra for running and HIIT (it comes in sizes 30C to 38G) while the Empower bra is ideal for cycling, circuit training and Pilates.
