Mobile functional fitness gear

Whether we like it or not, we are at war with terrorists. And, that means sending military personnel to remote parts of the globe to fight them.  Functional fitness is an integral part of the military.  Military personnel must be physically fit to do their job and survive.  I am proud that members of 3 of the 4 major branches of the US military have bought our exercise sandbags.  And of course I hope to be able to serve the US military more on a larger scale.

First I must describe what the US military is doing now.  It is shopping for functional fitness gear online, then making a shopping list from larger suppliers, using their gear by name, and asking for "fair" bidding by all parties on public websites.  It turns out that these public bids have only one supplier that can fill the order.  And almost every time, the shopping list calls for very heavy, bulky, expensive, and hard to move gear.  Most involve barbells and dumbbells and the racks and cages necessary to use them.  It also involves other accessories associated with barbell and dumbbell training.

At Workout Sandbags, we certainly are behind our leaders' efforts against radical political/religious terrorism.  And we are confident that we will prevail.  But we want to save both the USA's and all the other countries' governments money on exercise equipment.  We do not feel that bulky barbells and dumbbells and other weight equipment is the right choice for sending overseas on temporary deployments.

Our fitness sandbags are made of the strongest fabric we can find to make them from.  Ballistic nylon is about twice as strong as 1000D nylon fabric.  And that includes Mil-Spec 1000D nylon fabric.   It simply is a tougher weave, owing to the fact that the yarn used to make the fabric is woven twice in each direction, as compared to once each direction for 1000D nylon fabric. The point of this description is to tell you that our sandbags will hold up to harsh use in remote locations.  In short, they will take a beating and come home.

Exercise sandbags, whether ours or another supplier's, are a better way to go for portable military deployments.  They can be shipped overseas without the sand.  The sand can be added on location.  Then when we whip these nuts, we leave their sand there and take our sandbags home. Pardon my saying, but there is plenty of sand where this war is being fought.   

While I am at it, I want to extend my deepest gratitude to the men and women of the US military for keeping us safe.   I wish you the best this life has to offer.  Thank you for a job well done!

I want to save our country some money in our war on terrorism.  After all, it is part of their strategy to drain us dry both in blood and money.  We can reduce the cost of portable funtional fitness gear.  And we are here to help.
