The blackPack offers countless possibilities to lift your training to a new level. We have put together important information about your new favorite training tool for you to make the best out of your sandbag training. And two real-time workouts will give you the best introduction to functional training with the blackPack.
blackPack sandbags are demanding and powerful tools for physical fitness training at home. Please note our guidelines concerning safety and setup of the device to avoid injuries and accidents. Please consult your doctor, therapist, or trainer before training with the device for the first time! They can advise you accordingly and design an individual training plan for you. Get accustomed to the training slowly and don’t overburden yourself. You should start with uncomplicated exercises with little weight and, if possible, train together with a training partner who can support you.
Before you start
In our introduction video, our Head Coach Fabien will tell you everything you need to know about sandbag training and why the blackPack by aerobis is so different from common sandbags.
Training in real-time
Our training videos are divided in two parts. In the first part, Fabien will explain the exercises to you and give you tips for the correct form.
In the second part, you can train with us in real-time! The workout part has a countdown that tells you when a set starts and when you can pause. This will give you the perfect introduction to sandbag training.
The second training video is aimed at intermediate sandbag trainees that want to challenge themselves with more complex exercises.
Sandbag Workout for beginners

The first blackPack workout is like a Tabata but with only four intervals of 40 sec. work and 20 sec. pause.
