The best training apps for MMA and boxing

Fancy training like an ultimate fighter? Are you a budding boxer looking to sharpen your tools? Or do you just fancy getting into shape at your own pace? We thought we’d feature some of the apps created by our friends at Anykey Fitness. Their apps are designed so you can use them anywhere!


This is their best selling app and it’s not hard to figure out why. Through a mode called “Ultimate Boxer”, the app guides you through varying boxing combinations. These strikes can be performed by shadow boxing or when hitting a heavy bag. It’s like your very own boxing coach on your phone.

Another great selling point of the app is it’s “Real Fight” mode. This features 16 different bouts where you throw the very same punches as the boxer did in the real fight. How cool is that?!?! You can choose between fights from Anthony Joshua, Muhammad Ali, Arturo Gatti, Marvelous Marvin Hagler as well as many more!

We’d advise buying the bundle which gives you access to all of the app’s features as it saves on cost. Boxing is a great way to lose weight and you don’t have to have thrown a punch in your life to give this app a go! Click here to download Boxtastic to your device.

Ultimate Fighter

Ultimate Fighter is similar to Boxtastic but geared towards the sport of Mixed Martial Arts instead. The app’s Virtual Trainer will call out random combinations of moves for you to follow, again through either shadow boxing or whilst hitting the bag. The combinations include punches, kicks, blocks and footwork.

You can choose to go for five, five minute rounds like a UFC champion. Or, 12 three minute rounds like a boxing great. You can use this at the gym. If you don’t have time for the gym or don’t fancy it, no problem! Your garden or living room would work perfectly for this app too! You have no excuses, click here to download the app to your device!


This is an app which is completely free and something which the boys at FiveRoundWar use regularly. It comes with adjustable settings so you can choose the intervals that you want to work at. It has a list of exercises that cycle through during the duration of your workout. If you really want it to, it can really put you through your paces. This workout never fails to turn me into a sweaty mess by the end of it and I love every minute of it…

What we really like about HIIT ME is the fact that you can use it at home. I don’t always have the time to get to the gym. Sometimes, I just can’t be bothered…So HIIT ME is perfect if you need to squeeze in a quick workout. Click here to download HIIT ME.

To conclude, these great apps are available on the Google Play store. To download them to your Android device please click here. Now let’s shed those pounds and perfect our striking techniques!
