Bulgarian Bag

Train like an Eastern European wrestler with the Bulgarian bag. This is a crescent shaped leather bag filled with sand and perfect for both upper and lower body strength training and cardio. 

A highly versatile piece of kit, use it as a free weight in dynamic movements to increase your muscular endurance and improve your co-ordination and overall shoulder and joint mobility. Because of its shape and construction, it’ll also help improve your agility in ways that solid weights cannot. Check out a few exercises below.

Who knew you could do so much with just one piece of kit. These ball-shaped weights with attached handles are hugely versatile, allowing you to develop almost every aspect of your fitness, from endurance and strength to agility and balance. 

Harness the power of the kettlebell for a full body workout that’ll get you burning fat and engaging with different muscle groups for a more sculpted physique. There are endless exercise variations you can do, but here are a few of our favourites.

Discover Kettlebells


Developed by a former Navy Seal, this form of suspension training develops your strength, balance, flexibility and core stability, all whilst building muscle. 

TRX are those black and yellow straps you’ll see hanging around the gym floor. They rely on your own bodyweight for resistance as opposed to machines or dumbbells, while the infinite variety of exercises makes it perfect for everyone regardless of ability. Try a few of them next time you’re in the gym.
