We are pushing 1,000 workouts inside of our Workout Database, and considering we base a ton of them on celebrities that portray superheroes and another ton on heroes themselves, we tend to work with mixed martial arts a lot as well.
For that reason there's many members of The SHJ Army who want to know the best options for building their own MMA Home Gym.
We have a handful of great articles to help with your home gym, but in this one we'll specifically be talking about Mixed Martial Arts Home Gym Equipment.
If you want to take a peak at some of the other stuff we've worked on building for home gyms (most of which include all the tools I use in my own house), you can check them out here:
- Build Your Home Gym Under $100
- Build Your Home Gym Under $250
- The Best Work From Home Cardio Equipment Setup
- The Two Best Pieces of Portable Fitness Equipment
- The 5 Best Jump Ropes for All Levels of Skippers
Some of these will work perfectly with the below list, but our Mixed Martial Arts Home Gym Equipment range from all price ranges to help you get the very best, the most affordable, and hit all your needs.
Everlast 70-Pound MMA Poly Canvas Heavy Bag
Not only is Everlast's 70-Pound Heavy Bag to GO TO heavy bag, but it's also usually the first beginner bag, and great for all ranges of people getting into mixed martial arts training and looking to set up their first bag.
This is a no brainer if you're looking to wet your feet a bit.
FREESTANDING HEAVY BAG
Everlast Omniflex Freestanding Bag
This one is definitely a pricier option, but it obviously comes with some perks.
First, the obvious fact that it's freestanding and gets rid of the need to buy anything else to set it up and get started when you place it in your new MMA Home Gym.
Everlast Leather Speed Bag
Alright, so Everlast might own the market on some of these options, but we're going to get into a few other brands coming up (eventually....).
For now, you can't go wrong with going with what is known to be one of the leaders in the industry.
FREESTANDING STRIKE BAG
Everlast Hyperflex Strike Bag
Okay, I did say "eventually".
Everlast is just that good.
This is great as an alternative to any bag on the list for practicing your striking with a freestanding punching bag, and comes in at a price that makes it very accessible.
BOB ALTERNATIVE DUMMY BAG
Century B.O.B. Freestanding Dummy Bag
This is one of Brandon's (younger brother AKA YouTube guy) favorite pieces of equipment.
We bought him this for his birthday and the heavy bag became virtually obsolete.
It's a bit pricey, but totally worth it.
ProsourceFit Puzzle Exercise Mat, Interlocking Tiles
Finally, something Everlast doesn't do best! These are actually the exact mats I use in my own home gym, and they're PERFECT. You can buy one set and then come back and buy as many more as you'd like for future expansion.
SKIPPING / JUMP ROPE
Buddy Lee Master Jump Rope & Swivel System
The Buddy Lee Jump Ropes were created by Jump Master and Olympian Wrester Buddy Lee, and they're known as some of the best jump ropes on the market.
Put that together with the price point and you really just can't beat it in your MMA Home Gym.
If you want to check out some other jump ropes I also have my Top Five Jump Rope List where I break down the best beginner, speed, freestyle and even ropeless alternative options.
Sanabul Essential 7 oz MMA Hybrid Sparring Gloves
For the amount of Mixed Martial Arts sources, sites and athletes that recommend these gloves as a great starting point for an MMA Home Gym...the fact that they're only $19 is crazy!
Everlast Punching Mitts
Alright, alright, I had to go with one last Everlast product to start wrapping us up because punching mitts can be very hit or miss from my experience, and these have just always been a safe and great addition.
BONUS: HAYABUSA GLOVES
Hayabusa Boxing Gloves
If you want to step up your MMA Home Gym, well then this is where I'm doing it.
These things are BEYOND awesome.
They have Iron Man, Captain America, Black Panther, Captain Marvel and Punisher.
Sure they can get a bit pricier, but Hayabusa makes some of the best gloves out there, so at least you know you're getting top of the line!
That’s a wrap.
Either way, get out there and begin unleashing your inner superhuman!
Until next time,
