Sand bags as a method of functional training have long been used by the military, but Powerbag has brought a new, sleeker design to these once rugged looking bags, adding fresh innovations like high density breathable core padding and specially formulated non-tearing outer fabric to enhance performance and durability.

On the market since 2003, Powerbags have been used by the England Rugby team and by the Royal Marines, Royal Navy, Army and RAF.


The Powerbag was launched in 2003.

Initially developed for elite sport and used by the England Rugby World Cup winning squad, Powerbags were quickly picked up by the military. As a “use anywhere” training tool, Powerbags were utilised in operations in Iraq and Afghanistan and today more than 4,000 Powerbags are being used by the armed forces, including the Royal Marines, the Royal Navy, the Army and the RAF.

The Powerbag brand was subsequently purchased by Leisure Lines and further improvements were made to the already market-leading design.

It may look like a simple piece of equipment, but by their very nature, sand bags need to be able to take the abuse of being thrown around pitches, tracks and beaches. This is where Powerbag stands out from other imitations. Incorporating many patented design features that help to ensure the bag is durable, it is the original and best soft weight system on the market.

The Powerbag is not only a firm favourite among sports teams, schools and personal trainers but its portability and versatility makes it perfect for home use too.
