JHB Sandbag Training Workshop

Sun Mar 19, 09:00 - Sun Mar 19, 12:00
Emet Gyms


Sleekgeek has recognised that many people lack access to gym as well as knowledge and are not able to easily do weight training at home without the correct equipment.


Together with Coach Nicholas Ingel and owner of Emet Gyms we bring you a simple and highly effective training method using one single highly effective tool. - your variable load sandbag!


Sandbag training is a simple and highly effective way to increase strength and endurance while burning calories and building lean muscle in a safe manner. As the load within the sandbag moves slightly while you are training, you will constantly be working your chosen muscle groups from slightly different angles and load points, particularly the muscles crucial to structural health which are known as your stabilizer muscles.


Weight training is highly effect for burning calories and cutting body fat. You could use up to 1/3 of your calorie burn for the day for tissue repair after an effective weight training session. Your body can continue burning calories for up to 24 hours rather than the 3-4 hours after an intense cardio session.


The Emet Variable Load Sandbags weight start from 2.5kgs and increase incrementally to 80kgs. You can train safely & effectively in the privacy of your home or wherever you choose. Sandbags are effective and safe when used in the correct and appropriate manner which is why Emet Gyms, in conjunction with Sleekgeek have developed this workshop specifically to meet the needs of the Sleekgeek community members.

  • The Fundamental Sandbag Movements
