Move over spin class, there's a new calorie-burning workout in town. Kickboxing is one of the most heart-pumping, energizing, and fun workouts around. But as anyone who's ever entered the ring—or at least the gym—knows, it's a sport that requires some gear. To help you stock up your gym bag in style, we found some must-pack products.

Everlast Women's Pink Boxing Gloves

Naturally, you need a pair of boxing gloves to make it through your sweat-burning class. But toss out those classic red mitts and opt for this vibrant pink pair. 

Johnson's Baby Powder

We don't know about you, but after every good one-two punch, our hands feel a little sweaty. Freshen up and keep the sweat from causing blisters and unwanted rubs with classic baby powder.

Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant, Cool Essentials

Let's be real, if you didn't break a sweat, did you really work out? Well, if you're wearing a strong enough antiperspirant, you might just be able to hide your sweaty session!

Scunci No-Slip Grip Headbands

The last thing you need during your roundhouse kick is to see a piece of hair flying in your eyes. Keep it in its place with a no-slip headband.

Yes To Coconut Face & Hand Cleansing Wipes

We're big fans of face wipes for instantly refreshing after a gym visit. These drugstore clothes are not only cleansing, but they're also hydrating to replenish the water you just lost during your workout.

For those times when you have to make a B-line for work and have to—gasp—skip the shower, fool the office with cooling body clothes. They wipe away sweat, refresh skin, and mask some cough, cough, unwanted scent. 

Le Couvent des Minimes Gardener's Hand Healer

If you've really shown the punching bag who's boss, your poor hands might feel a little beat up as well. Nothing beats healing cracked knuckles, dry skin, and chaffing better than this hydrating Gardener's hand cream.
