Target Punch bags can be very useful pieces of equipment for beginners or those who have no boxing experience at all.
By having specific targets on your punch bag it can really help you to become more accurate with your punching and know where to throw them.
The other way it helps, is by improving your overall combination punching, which can be quite a tricky method to learn at first. For example, having a target can really help you to hone in the fundamental combinations.
In this article I have come up with 5 target freestanding bags along with potential alternative for you!
1. Gallant Freestanding Punch Bag
The Gallant Sports punch bag is one of the best options to go with if you are beginner or someone not looking to make a massive investment in a punch bag. As you can see from above there are multiple designs to choose from, but in the case of this blog you will see there is two target based artwork bags – Black/Red and Red/Black (6 targets points)
This punch bag is a fantastic training aid, helping you to build up your fitness and improve your technique. Whether you are boxing, kick-boxing, practicing a martial art, or simply want another tool in your home cardio studio, this bag will become an essential component in your training.
My only negative about this punch stand is that it on the shorter side, so if you are taller this might not be the best option for you. Features include:
- Size: it stands at 5.5ft
- Simple to set up with option to fill base with sand or water.
- Lined with soft 5cm-thick EPE foam
- Shock Absorption Micro-Fiber highly padded filling

5. Core Home Fitness FightMaster
The FightMaster is definitely on of the best target punch bags you can get as it entirely designed to give you target to punch.
These punch target rods have been set up in way to replicate punching a mitt, by offering a slight “give” in the pads on impact that has that lovely ‘pop’ when you connect. They are also all numbered to make it easier for you to improve your combinations punching.
This is also attached to a stand with wheels which gives you the ability to move out the way after using – a pretty handy feature.
