If you're interested in boxing but don't want to bother with a gym, FightCamp might have the solution.

FightCamp, announced today at CES 2019, is a smart fitness system designed for boxing at home. The kit includes a punching bag, gloves, hand wraps and an exercise mat. In additional to the system itself, you also have to sign up for the $39 monthly subscription. 

The monthly service gives you access to FightCamp workouts via the iOS app (there's no Android app at this time).

I got to try it out for myself and -- it was hard, but in a fun way. Having never boxed before, the weight of the gloves surprised me. A Bluetooth "punch counter" tucks into each hand wrap and the app screen counts your punches while it counts down your remaining time.  

FightCamp costs $995 and is only available in the US. At the current exchange rate, that's about £785 or AU$1,410.
