About our fitness sandbags
We designed Workout Sandbags in 2010 after using the "duffel-bag" style for the previous 3 years. We wanted a better grip and a better feel of the shifting sand. Our design gives both of that and more. Instead of a cylindrical shape, it has a giant beanbag shape that maximizes instability. Our first sale came in August 2011. His review is on the bottom of this page.
Before 2011 was out, the Cincinnati Bengals bought some, as did Dartmouth College's athletic department. In 2012 other colleges, gyms, and CrossFit boxes followed.
From summer 2011 until spring 2013 our web address was DGKFIT.com. Since then our web address has been WorkoutSandbags.com.
We are proud to offer an improved version of the duffel-bag style exercise sandbags. Our version has been reviewed as being more suited to sandbag training than the standard design that all the other guys use. We welcome you to read their reviews on their own page.
We keep our overhead low so your purchase price is spent almost entirely on your sandbags. This is done by doing our own website design, photography, and sewing. This gives you the best value for your money. Both our filler and outer bags are made in USA from ballistic nylon.
All Workout Sandbags products are of an original design. They are designed to be ergonomic and effective, not to meet any price point. Still, sandbag training is much more effective and much more affordable than traditional weight training.
Ballistic nylon is about twice as tough as 1000D nylon, which the other guys use. This is because the fabric is woven with 2 strands in each direction. It will stand up to years of abuse. See photo to left for comparison of 1000D fabric on left with ballistic nylon on right. The thread that Workout Sandbags are sewn with is about twice as thick as other sandbags' thread.
You have the option of holding the sand leakproof in contractor bags that are doubled and tripled up. These bags allow the sand to move as a whole with the outer bag, instead of chopping it up into compartments. And that makes for better sandbag training. Also, it makes our bags affordable enough to buy multiple bags for different moves. For those of you who want filler bags, we now offer them as an option. One filler bag holds all of the sand the outer bag is rated to carry. This is intentional to allow the whole load of sand in the filler bag to shift as a whole unit with the outer bag.
You will be treated with honesty, courtesy, and competence, just like we expect when we buy online.
We thank you for your business and invite you to contact us with any questions. Thank you!
