Sandbag Training

Sandbag training is an excellent training method for personal trainers to use with clients for building strength and power throughout their whole body. The fun and flexibility offered by these bags means you can take this training anywhere, whether in the gym, studio or outside. An excellent way to develop power and explosiveness.

The course fee includes a Sandbag, which is just the thing to use with your own training and that of your clients. You will be given the bag on the day of the course. You will need to bring sand from home to put inside the bag. It is best to use rubble bags as these are thicker and plenty of brown parcel tape. You can make up 2 or 3 bags of sand that is packed well in each bag so that you have around 15-20kg in total for the Sandbag. You could bring a spare old sheet/pillow case to fill any remaining voids in the Sandbag on the day if you are putting in less weight in sand

This course has been designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills to use sandbag training with your clients and incorporate it into their current exercise regimes. You will learn how to use the sandbag for numerous exercises in a safe and effective way.

Please note:

As part of our response to the current situation, we have decided to change this Profusion course to an eLearning format. This course will soon be available to book.

The online course will include a comprehensive range of sandbag training exercises with instructions, photographs, and videos throughout. To gain the certificate, you will complete a short online quiz (this can be reattempted) and then download a certificate.

You will also be able to purchase a hard-copy manual to accompany this new online course.
