What Makes the Ultimate Sandbag So Unique?

Built To Last

The use of sandbags may go back a long ways, but never as a serious and focused training tool. One of the primary issues was the fact that sandbags were always seen as “dirty” and easy to break. The innovative design of the Ultimate Sandbag doesn’t rest on canvas. We went for the “big guns”, a special material that doesn’t absorb sweat, it won’t rip your skin, and it is about 30% stronger than Cordura. While other companies spend time trying to convince you their sandbags are durable, we stand behind our fundamental value of providing a tool that will deliver on solving your fitness goals. That means no mess, no discomfort, nothing but an exceptional fitness experience. With a 30 day money back guarantee and a 3-year warranty on any manufacturing defects, we’ve taken not only sandbag training to new heights, but all the risk out of investing in the best way to train for real world fitness!


We don’t want you to have an Ultimate Sandbag, we want you to use and experience the Ultimate Sandbag! That means having a powerful training tool just gives you the potential to achieve greatness. Knowledge gives you the “know how”. We never wanted to offer just another “tool for the toolbox”, but a whole new way to see real world fitness. That is why the DVRT system is so integral to the success we know you can achieve.

The DVRT system with the Ultimate Sandbag is the powerful combination that has made leading industry professionals change how they train. You don’t have to be an industry expert, athlete, or Marine to benefit from the Ultimate Sandbag. You DO have to be someone that wants to change how they feel, move, and perform forever!


Before the Ultimate Sandbag came out in 2005, the idea of a “sandbag with handles” was non-existent. In fact, some thought we were crazy. As with all good things, you have to start with the “why’s”. What motivated us to put handles on the Ultimate Sandbag? Another reason that sandbags weren’t very popular was they were seen as “poor man’s barbells”. What you used when you really didn’t have anything else. That is because they versatility of sandbags were limited due to the fact that a duffel bag wasn’t designed to be a powerful fitness tool.

Adding handles to our Ultimate Sandbag accomplished several goals. Not only did it increase the versatility from a few dozen exercises, but to a few hundred! Our handles also allowed us to expand the training system and build better progressions so that any fitness level could revolutionize their fitness and well-being from using the Ultimate Sandbag. Lastly, using the right materials to construct the Ultimate Sandbag and the addition of handles removed the old discomfort of using sandbags. The knuckle ripping, hand chaffing, the rough up your body (not make it better) feeling that classic sandbags provided.

However, we didn’t just stick handles on a bag. Rather, we looked at the biomechanics of people and matched the length, distance, and type of handle to meet the natural movements of the body. Where most people are forced to adapt to the tool, we have the tool designed to meet your needs and mechanics. That’s where so many go wrong, they literally just stick handles on a bag.
