The Highest-Rated Free Boxing Apps

With 2022 just around the corner, many of us are making our New Year’s resolutions to get into shape. If you aren’t ready to spend money on a gym membership, apps can be a great way to kickstart your new fitness regime. There are plenty of free apps on the market, but choosing the right one for you can be tough.

Here at Geezers Boxing, we have analysed the free boxing apps available on Android and Apple devices to find the highest rated. Why not start your 2022 boxing training with the best apps on the market?

How the apps are ranked

First, we searched on both the Google Play and the Apple App Store for apps relating to the word ‘boxing’. We excluded any apps that required immediate payment upfront, only focusing on the apps which were free to download.

We then analysed reviews to find the overall rating on each platform, before finding the average between the two (when available on both Android and Apple devices). The top ten apps were then ranked in order of highest to lowest rating.

The table below shows the apps in order of ranking, with the relevant operating system information and whether or not the app has in-app purchases.

The top-rated free boxing apps

FightCamp - 4.9*

FightCamp is the app that you need to get in order to kickstart your boxing fitness goals in 2022… if you have an iPhone or iPad, at least. It’s an Apple-exclusive, which is frustrating for Android users, but it is by far the highest-rated app available for free. It has an overall rating of 4.9* from 15.7k reviews, and many of the reviews reflect the description of FightCamp being “the most enjoyable and effective at-home boxing workout”.

However, the free price is a little misleading. While the App Store tells us that there are no in-app purchases and that the app is free to download, a look at the FightCamp website shows that you need a monthly membership and specialised equipment. Membership is $39 a month, which doesn’t include equipment.

There are three equipment packages available, with the cheapest costing $439 and the most expensive at $1,349. Each package contains punch trackers to accurately record and monitor your data, so you can see your progress over time. Whether the subscription is worth it or not is entirely up to you and your needs, but the number of high ratings makes us optimistic.

Nike Training Club - 4.8*

Looking for a great boxing app for 2022 that is available on both Android and Apple operating systems? The Nike Training Club app might be perfect for you. Across both platforms, the app has over half a million reviews, with an average rating of 4.8*.

The app is free to download, though there are in-app purchases to unlock further content. That said, it offers a great variety of workouts for all occasions, from boxing to yoga, so you can keep your exercise regime varied and exciting. The sessions are between 15 and 45 minutes long, meaning you can always find a routine to fit your schedule.

One thing that makes this app stand out is the fact that you can get flexible training plans. These personal plans will guide you through each workout towards your goal, with four 4-6 week training plans available. Best of all, you can customise it to suit your environment, whether you are working out at home or at the gym.

Boxing Training & Workout - 4.8*

With an average rating of 4.8* across Android and Apple devices, Boxing Training & Workout has proven to be a popular free app for all of your boxing needs. Specifically designed for boxing, kickboxing, and Muay Thai, this app offers guided heavy bag and shadow boxing workouts for all levels of ability.

Like many of the apps on this list, there are in-app purchases, with a subscription to unlock more workouts. However, the reviews suggest that this is well worth it, and many feel that it is a good alternative to FightCamp, so why not try it for yourself?

Shadow Boxing Workout App - 4.8*

The Shadow Boxing Workout App is an Apple-exclusive, but with an overall rating of 4.8* it has proven to be exceptionally popular. One thing that makes this app stand out is that you can “practice boxing anywhere without gear”. They are working to make boxing exercises accessible for everyone, regardless of the equipment they have.

Again, the app has in-app purchases, but there is a huge variety of exercises and workouts to choose from, with HIIT to freestyle and everything in between. Plus, you can customise your workout and even record yourself boxing to help you improve your stance.

PunchLab - 4.8*

PunchLab is an impressive 2022 free boxing app with excellent ratings across both Android and Apple. Overall, it has a 4.8* rating, but perhaps the most impressive thing about the app are the number of celebrity testimonials they showcase on their homepage. WBA World Champion Giovanni De Carolis and Guinness World Record Holder Ricardo Serravalle are just some of those using the app.

In-app purchases are an option, but the app seems extremely intuitive, allowing users to monitor their progress over time and set their own goals. On the premium plan, users can get a belt to secure their phone to the punch bag to get more accurate data recording.

Kickboxing Fitness Training - 4.7*

Another Apple-exclusive, the Kickboxing Fitness Training app has an overall rating of 4.7* from 1.3k reviews. Like many of the others on this list, it is free with in-app purchases, with a focus on kickboxing to combine martial arts techniques with fast-paced cardio workouts.

Many of the reviews suggest that this is the perfect app for beginners, with many stating that the simplicity of the app makes it ideal for novices. If you are looking into trying kickboxing for the first time, this may be the ideal way to do it.

PUMATRAC from PUMA is free to download on both the Google Play and the App Stores, with over 120 free workouts available at different levels. There are in-app purchases to unlock additional workouts, but the number of free exercises available means that you might not need them.

It has been extremely well received with an overall rating of 4.7*, and it works with many smartwatches to help you track your progress. If you do choose this app, many of the reviews suggest watching the tutorials before trying the workout, as many move too quickly for beginners.

Boxx - 4.4*

Boxx claims to be the ultimate at-home and studio boxing workout, available on Android and Apple devices. While it is free to download, the in-app purchases mean that you will have to subscribe after a free trial to continue using the app.

One of the most interesting things about this app is the team behind it. They seem to be constantly working to make the app better, and they are extremely open to feedback. The Boxx team also have a crowdfunding campaign where you can get a punch bag and smart tracker to improve your home workout.

Boxtastic - 4.3*

Boxtastic is the only Android-exclusive on this list of the highest-rated free boxing apps. The free-to-download app gives you a virtual trainer to call out punch combinations as you go, giving you a more immersive experience, much like a professional boxing gym.

There are in-app purchases, and while the overall rating is 4.3*, many of the reviews seem extremely positive about it providing a consistent experience. The creators also respond to every review, taking on feedback, which is great to see when there are so many boxing apps saturating the market.

Boxing Coach and Workout Timer - 4.3*

Another Apple-exclusive, the Boxing Coach and Workout Timer has an overall rating of 4.3* from 62 reviews. The reviews themselves seem extremely mixed, with many stating that the app is excellent while others claiming you cannot use it without paying for something.

The app itself boasts a simple and clean interface to make it easy to use, with the ability to add numerous boxing combinations to your workout for a customised exercise routine. It works on both iPad and iPhone, so you can use whichever device suits you best to get the ultimate workout.

Do free fitness apps really work?

If you are struggling to get into a workout routine, a free fitness app is a good way to give yourself a kickstart and figure out what type of exercise is right for you. Plus, with many of the apps being free to download and offering a free trial or free content, you can try a few different apps to see which you like best.

Simple interfaces, the ability to track workouts, and content not hidden behind a paywall seem to be some of the things that users are looking for in free boxing apps in 2022. What do you look for, and have you used any of the highest-rated free boxing apps yourself?
