Start Throwing Your Weight Around with Dumbags — Smart Weights


webDumbags are purpose-built sandbags designed to eliminate the major problems associated with metal kettlebells and dumbbells, such as personal injury, property damage, noise, portability issues, storage, cost and much more. Its brilliant design and versatility has meant that it is suitable for anyone purchasing weights — whether on their own or as an addition to existing weights.

Created by Australian businessman and fitness professional, Michael Coates, together with his two sons (both personal trainers), Dumbags have just completed test marketing via a global crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo. Coates and his sons are very excited by the results, with orders coming in from countries all over the world.

The simple appearance of Dumbags hides years of development and testing. In fact, Coates’ sons have been using them in their own personal training businesses for the last 18 months, with many satisfied local clients in Australia.

Aside from looking great they have even more unique benefits:

  • You can hold more than one weight at a time (2, 3, 4 or more weights at once).
  • Use them with any other weight system (e.g. with a kettlebell, dumbbell, resistance bands, power bags, etc.). This makes them perfect for super-setting.
  • There are dozens of new and unique exercises that have been designed around the use of Dumbags.
  • Use them anywhere: indoor, or outdoor, upstairs or downstairs, it doesn’t matter.

Special Features:

No noise. No damage. No injuries. Practical. Versatile. Portable. Adaptable. Flexible. Economical.

In simple terms, Dumbags are sandbags designed for use in fitness and personal training environments. They are designed to be a safe, adaptable and practical alternative to hard/metal-based weights such as dumbells and kettlebells.

One of the key design features was to make them virtually indestructible. Check out the Dumbags video on the website for full details on its design.

Dumbags are available in seven* sizes:  4lb, 7lb, 9lb, 11lb, 14lb, 18lb, 22lb (*An eighth 26lb, currently in production).

Don’t forget that Dumbags also give you, and your clients, endless weight combinations. Need 20lb? Grab a 9lb with 11lb. Need 32lb? Grab a 14lb with an 18lb, and so on.

Furthermore, due to brilliant design, each Dumbag can be easily adjusted up or down in weight. For example, by using metal shot instead of sand, or a mixture.
