Do you have to have a special beam from which to hang the boxing bag? I ask because the hole at our current house expanded and we had to purchase a stand for the bag. Would love to be able to hang the bag in the new house one day.

Instead of framed posters, event tickets and jerseys, consider displaying actual sports equipment. Vintage equipment such as golf clubs, tennis rackets or skis can add unexpected warmth to a room while displaying your passion (or history) in a certain sport.

If you've got the space for a home gym, don't make exuses for it, celebrate it! I love this tough concrete floor and boxing bag, paired with the elegant tufted bench for breaks.
You can channel your inner Rocky Balboa at home with a punching bag; it sure beats chasing a chicken around an alley. Just be sure to work with a contractor to ensure the beam can handle the weight.
Women's boxing has had a tough journey into the Olympic stadium, but this year 36 women will compete in a sport usually reserved for the glorification of men's power and physique. This punching bag corner in an Atlanta loft's home gym has broad appeal; the concrete floor and dark hues speak a masculine language, but the tufted leather bench with cabriole legs and gloves on top softens the space and lends a feminine touch. The gym could work for both Mom and Dad — and what better way to show the kids gender equality than letting both parents have a go at the bag?

I love the idea of hanging a punching bag in my home. I was thinking it would be fun to have it imprinted with inspiring words or a pattern of my own on it. Maybe have it in white. Sew a slipcover for it? I'm thinking that's pretty high where the punching bag is.
