If you love working out on the beach, take the gym with you! An ideal companion to your outdoor workout, the Sandpac was designed by Nathalie Morton (Follow Me Fitness) and made in Cornwall especially for working out on the beach. The first of its kind, the Sandpac TM is a refillable weight, it is suitable for all levels of fitness and can also be used by instructors for a group class as it is light and easy to carry in numbers.

The Sandpac can be used to replicate most of the exercises you would do in the gym. Fill it with sand and it becomes a kettle bell, dumbbell or a medicine ball. It is also perfect for a travelling as it folds up flat in your bag and can be taken anywhere! Unlike traditional gym weights, it has a soft handle making it easier to hold.
The Sandpac trains individuals to listen to their body and work to their own level so there are no measurements for the weight of sand added to the Sandpac, it is just filled with enough sand for the muscle groups the individual is using – so more weight for exercises using legs and bum than for shoulder and arm exercises. If at any time the Sandpac is too light or too heavy sand can be added or taken away. It really encourages a mindful method of training and at the end of the workout the sand is emptied back on to the beach.
