Can I start this review with a WOOHOO!?! Not only am I fortunate enough to be reviewing the ” Ultimate Sandbag Core Training System”, but it’s PINK!! Right off the bat, I give bonus points – I might train tough, but I am still a girl!! πŸ˜‰

In the last few years, there has been a shift in the way people are working out. Step into most gyms, and you will find the majority ofΒ  trainers are using “functional fitness” as their “go to”Β  approach to transforming physiques. Functional fitness means theΒ  workout is preparing your body for everyday life and daily activities, like carryingΒ  groceries, liftingΒ  small children or climbing stairs – without pain, injury or discomfort.

Strength coach, Josh Henkin, developed the “Ultimate Sandbag Core Training System” with that very thing in mind. The “Ultimate Sandbag” workout simulates many daily movements, and because of the instability of the bag, it forces you to engageΒ  your core and other stabilizing muscles to maintain proper form.

Working out with the “Ultimate Sandbag” is unique, I feel like I am working harder (trust me YOU feel it the next day ) and getting more done, in less time, so I can easily fit it into my day. It also feels pretty great to let out some aggression and throw around some weight on stressful days!! πŸ™‚

Exercise variations and workout possibilities are endless – helping you build a strong core while getting in a full body workout. I loved being able to pop in the free DVD and do one of the 6 workouts included or glance at the poster provided for quick exercise references and create my own circuit. Another added bonus is there are tons of free YouTube videos, as well as a fee online blog, led by expert “Ultimate Sandbag” trainers.

The “Ultimate Sandbag” is GREAT, as it almost replaces everything you would find in a traditional gym, making it the PERFECT at home or take anywhere tool!Β  I LOVE that for a mere $2 bag of sand (found at Home Depot), I can instantly vary the resistance to meet my fitness needs, and I don’t have to fuss with a bunch of differentΒ  free weights.

The “Ultimate Sandbag Core Training System”Β  package includes:

  • A core shell ( Pink or Black) – durable enough to withstand all kinds of abuse. Has 7 handles so you can change your grip, depending on the exercise
  • 20 lb filler bag,Β  that is easy to fill and has a strong velcro enclosure to ensure no leaks.
  • A DVD with filling instructions and 6 different workouts.
  • A poster showing different exercises for Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced fitness levels.
  • A booklet filled with instructions, exercise descriptions, and workouts.

The Ultimate Sandbag comes with a 30 day money back guarantee, as well as a 1 year warranty against defects or breakage.
