Q: “What are the filler bags and how do they work?”

A: The Filler bags are made from the same tough material as the sandbag shell.  They have a patent-pending military specification double velcro design, to keep sand off of you and your floor. The Filler Bags come in 2 sizes - Small (12 KG Max Capacity) and Large (20 KG Max Capacity). Both the Athlete and Strongman Sandbags come complete with the required Filler Bags but they are also available to purchase separately.  

Filler bags are filled with the desired lifting weight, and placed inside the sandbag shell. It is not recommended to over-all your filler bags past capacity - the sand needs room to shift for the best possible training session, and to avoid bursting the filler bag. Filler bags can also be used outside of the sandbag shell to train with also.

Q: “What makes your company different and why are your sandbags more expensive?”

A: Our sandbags are built tough for your training needs and with the idea that they will last you a very long time. You get what you pay for. I honestly don’t want you calling me a few months later because your sandbag broke from normal training.  If you buy another sandbag from us, I want it to be because you want a different size, or because your buddy ran away with yours. Our sandbags are made from Military-Grade Cordura and are designed to last.

Q: “Do the bags come filled with sand?”

A: No. All of our sandbags are provided unfilled. Sand is very easy to get hold of - a builders merchant, garden centre or hardware store is normally the best place to purchase it at a very affordable price. If we were to provide the bags filled, the postage would be prohibitively expensive for you.

Q: “Do you offer bulk discounts?”

A: For all distributor enquiries please contact us with your requirements.

Q: “Do you have any special offers?”

A:  Yes - we will occasionally run special offers. These will be promoted via e-mail and our social media groups. At the time of any special offers, our website prices will automatically be amended so the price you see is the price you'll pay.

Q: “I can lift much more using free weights – will this be too easy for me?”

A: No. Sandbag training can be much more difficult. This is why it has become so popular in CrossFit, underground gyms, MMA gyms and with the military. The sand shifts inside of the fillers, making it a different lift each time you pick it up. You are training with a “live” weight.  You will have to fight and struggle each time you lift. There is no “groove” you can find, and it will never be centered or balanced. This is what makes it such an effective and fun method of training.

Q: “Why shouldn’t I just make my own sandbag?”

 A: Homemade bags often fall apart too easily, resulting in a sand-bath for either you or your floor. In practical terms, the handles are particularly useful for high pulls, farmers walks and snatches.  Both open and closed grip exercises are important in training so the handle also accomplishes this.

Q: “What is Cordura?”

 A: Cordura is the brand name of the fabric we use - a super strong product designed for it's durability and resistance to tearing. Our Cordura is Military-Grade 1100D. We use this material to ensure that you get many years of use out of your product.
