How to Make Your Own Home Fitness Equipment

Hi Everyone!
In the first episode of our brand new videos series called DIY FITNESS GEAR I am going to show you how you can make your own sandbag for just $15.

Sandbag training has become very popular and for good reason. You can literally do hundreds of exercises with a sandbag and it is something every person should have in his home fitness equipment arsenal. The problem is that many good ones can cost over $100 and that can put it out of the reach for many of us.

Luckily it is very easy to make your own sandbag that can be just as effective if not more than the ones you buy in stores.

So watch the video above, get your hands a little dirty and you will soon have your very own sandbag that will help you take your home fitness workouts to a whole new level.

    Just saw a sand bag workout on another blog today. This provides a great way to shiftt the load quickly during exercises. Comes in handy for circuit training. Great substitute for a medicine ball or weights. I will recommend this to my physiotherapy patients for their home exercise programs.

    Hi Peter,

    First of all I want to thank you so much for your free videos. I will start them these vacations, I haven’t done so yet because school. I really love the fact that you made these videos free for us I am a College student and I just don’t have the money to purches any kind of exercice videos I also don’t have money tobe buying equipment, so I’m going to be using bricks as dumbells. Haha

    BUT! please, please make more videos like this I could really need better ideas than bricks.

    Great video. Awesome alternative to the expensive bags. I’ll definitely try this before shelling out $150 for the same thing. Please keep the vids coming.
