Hi! First I LOVE all the new videos and can't thank you enough for them! I tried the boxing class today (which I really enjoyed! nice change up from the dance!) and am curious about the gloves? Are they necessary and what benefits to the class do they offer?
I'm glad you liked the class. The gloves are just weighted gloves, they are 1/2 lb each. They just provide more resistance as you work the upper body. They are never necessary to do the class.
Just be careful if you decide to try gloves. Often you will find them in heavier weights & then you run the risk of injury.
1/2 lb is plenty when you are moving at this pace.
