Heavy Duty 8 Bag Boxing stand $909.99
Overview of the TITAN 8 Bag boxing stand
The TITAN 8 bag boxing stand is the biggest boxing stand you can get from TITAN. If you have space and can bolt it to the ground it is a solid tool to get more bags up in a commercial gym with high ceilings. In other scenarios, it is probably overkill. The full specifications of this stand are:
- Easy bolt together design.
- Holds up to 8 bags of any size.
- 360-degree access to each bag.
- 8 Eye hooks to hang bags.
- Can be collapsed into a 4 bag stand.
- Height: 8-ft
- Footprint: 12-ft x 6-ft
- Base Plates: 6-in x 4-in
- Material: 3-in x 3-in steel tubing.
- Capacity: 300 lbs. per Hook | 2400 lbs.total
- Weight: 405 lbs.
This is a massive rig to hang bags on which leaves you with a solid foundation and a lot of space to work with your boxing clients.
Pros of the TITAN 8 Bag boxing stand
The pros of the TITAN 8 bag boxing stand are:
Space to circle the bags
This is a solid solution and I especially like it because you can work with different bag configurations to maximize free movement around them. If you want to hang a lot of bags whilst having the space to navigate around them, then this is the best you can get from TITAN.
Cons of the TITAN 8 bag boxing stand
The cons of the 8 Bag boxing stand from TITAN are:
Do you really need 8 bags in your gym and want to pay about $1000 just to have a station to hang them on? I think for most people and commercial gyms the answer will be no. Especially, if the ceilings are low and you can use them to hang bags.
Alternatives to the TITAN 8 bag boxing stand
The alternatives for the TITAN 8 bag boxing bag are:
Out of the entire TITAN boxing stand line up, I like this one the least. The reason os that the uprights are too close to the bags in this setup. It limits how you can move around the bag even though you are paying extra bucks to them mounted. If you need a lot of bags, go for the 8 bag stand and leave some space. If you want to hang 4 bags, get two of the two bag heavy stands from TITAN so you can decide how far you want to put them apart.
The heavy-duty 2 bag stand is a great option to hang four bags but with more space between the individual bags. With this you can move freely around the bags, while still being able to hang some pretty heavy ones.
Conclusion for the TITAN 8 bag boxing stand
The 8 bag heavy stand is a great option when you want to hang a lot of bags in your gym while still being able to circle around them
Heavy Duty 4 Bag boxing stand $694,99
Overview of the TITAN 4 Bag heavy-duty boxing stand
The 4 bag boxing stand from TITAN is their top of the line box stand including four eye hooks. With this rig, you can hang four bags into your gym for four different purposes filled with water, sand, or pebbles depending on your training goals. For the price, you are getting a stable rig that you can place anywhere with a flat surface. The full specifics of this boxing stand are:
- Easy bolt together design.
- Holds up to 4 bags of any size.
- 360-degree access to each bag.
- 4 Eye hooks to hang bags.
- Height: 8'
- Footprint: 6' x 6'
- Base Plates: 6" x 4"
- Material: 3" x 3" steel tubing.
- Capacity: 300 LB per Hook | 1200 LB Total
- Weight: 330 LB
This rig is big and easy to assemble. Based on TITAN's commitment to low prices you will also be able to get it without shelling out too much money.
Pros of the TITAN 4 Bag heavy-duty boxing stand
The pros of the TITAN 4 Bag heavy-duty boxing stand are:
Easy to assemble
On this rig, you can place four different bags for your training needs. Whether this may be a speed bag, heavy bag, or specialty bag is completely up to you. The construction will be able to hold the weight and even more. In addition, this also saves you from drilling multiple sandbag hooks into the ceiling, as the rig can be bolted to the ground. Especially in a gym with high ceilings, a rig like this can solve some problems to house all of your special bags in one concentrated space.
As you are getting a full rig with this you can also hook up some other attachments like bands and tools for grip training from this rig. The bags can be easily interchanged using the eye hooks. This makes it a convenient use for applications beyond just boxing. You can also work with TRX bands and other accessories to work your complete body and have different stimuli in your training.
The TITAN 4 bag heavy duty boxing stand is easy to assemble between two people. TITAN applies their knowledge from selling racks and squat stands and applies the plug and play assembly successfully to this boxing rig.
For a rig this big the pricing is reasonable as it still stays under $1000. If you get a professional team to assemble a rig like this you are easily above $1000 for the total package including the rig and services.
Cons of the TITAN 4 bag heavy duty boxing stand
The cons of the TITAN 4 bag heavy duty boxing stand
Bags too close
Do you really need 4 different bags to become a good boxer or get your conditioning fix? Chances are that you don't. You are giving up quite a bit of space for this rig where you might even be able to place a small ring. So be thoughtful with your space, especially when you are intending to train multiple people in the same session.
The bags are pretty close to each other and are blocked by the uprights on the left and right. If you want to run a group training session multiple bags hanging from the ceiling will provide more freedom to move around them. For $600 you also might be able to grab 4 - 6 sandbags to be drilled into the ceiling. This rig comes without any bags and dictates how the bags are positioned to each other.
This rig is big and can not be easily removed. While you can remove hanging bags if you want to create more space for other types of training, this rig will have to stay in place. If you want to change your setup around often depending on which classes you are running, this rig will limit your options.
Compared to some hanging or standing this is a pricey investment as you need to spend $600 on the rig and then another $100 - $300 on the bags you are using, depending on what they are. Often these bags come with all the equipment to mount them to the ceiling or wall, which makes you pay double on the little parts.
Alternatives to the TITAN 4 bag heavy duty boxing stand
Alternatives to the TITAN Heavy-duty 4 bag stand are
The dual station heavy boxing bag from TITAN has a central upright with two arms including an eyehook. I would personally prefer this station for group classes as you can 3 - 6 in a line to train 6 - 12 people in parallel. The advantage is that they all will have enough space to move around the boxing bag for proper boxing drills. Pricing wise, if all you want is to hang as many bags as cheaply as possible, the 4 bag rig is the better way to go.
The adjustable heavy bag boxing stand is the right choice if you want to hang a heavy bag in a place where you can not anchor it to the wall or ceiling. In a dingy basement gym this might not the choice, but if you have a lot of space and want to put one of your most premium bags on display, this the right stand to get. The only disadvantage is that you pay $300 to fix one bag only.
The dual station boxing stand for a speed and boxing bag is cheap and does not need to be bolted to the ground. This is the right choice when you only train boxing for leisure. If you like to pound very heavy bags and know how to pack a punch this might not be the right choice. The station will start moving around when you give the bag a brutal beating. Great as a boxing toy for middle-aged dads, but not for serious athletes.
The RDX free standing punch bag is a professional boxing bag that also comes with a stand with suction cups. The base can be filled with water or sand to weigh it down and make it more stable. For the price of one TITAN 4 bag boxing rig, you can get three of these. Especially indoor gyms that want to move their setup around can better invest these. These bags are not great to be used on grass, gravel, or asphalt. Here it would be better to bolt a rig to the ground and hang your bag on it.
RDX has a wide range of heavy punching bags that can be hung from the ceiling or a wall. For a little more than $100, you will get a full set including mitts and multiple other boxing training related items. This is a great starter kit for someone who just wants to box at home.
Conclusion for the TITAN 4 bag heavy duty boxing stand
The TITAN 4 bag heavy duty boxing stand is good for outdoor application or a home boxer who wants to hang multiple bags in his garage or basement without too much hassle. For any training facility that offers classes with different focuses, this rig might eat up too much space. Multiple bags hanging from the ceiling, multiple free-standing bags, or the TITAN dual station boxing stand give more freedom of movement for the athlete around the bag and more options for the coach to play around with training setups.
Fan bike $629.99
Overview of the TITAN Fan bike
The TITAN fan bike is a clone of the Rogue Echo bike with massive wheels on it. One other major difference is that it is driven by a chain rather than a belt. Price-wise it undercuts the Rogue echo bike. Fanbikes are ideal for interval training to really kick your butt with Tabata training or other forms of interval training. For this, fan bikes are far superior to treadmills or rowing machine. If you want to burn the maximum amount of calories in the shortest amount of time, fan bikes are the best option for the lowest price. The details of the TITAN fan bike are:
Seat height: 33 - 42.75 in
Footprint: 50.25-in x 20.375-in
Handle diameter: 38 mm
Wheel diameter: 10-in x 3-in.
Finish: Powder-Coated Black
Material: Heavy-Duty Steel
Weight capacity: 330lb
Product weight: 111lb.
- Fully enclosed metal chain drive
- Removable fan guard
- LCD Console Display with customizable modes
- Bluetooth Heart Rate function pairs with Polar® Bluetooth Heart Rate Transmitters
- Tracks Time, Distance, Heart Rate, RPM, Calories, Watts, Odometer
- High-Intensity Interval Training Programs
- Large ergonomic seat with multi-adjustment options
- Knurled footpegs and rear handle
- Reinforced metal foot pedals
- Sealed cartridge bearings utilized in every pivot
- Turf tires for easy moving over any terrain
- Aluminum Water Bottle Holder
- Phone holder with grippy pad
- Assembly hardware
This is a solid low price fan bike, especially if you want to use it outside. The only downside is the chain which is more likely to break than a belt.
Pros of the TITAN Fan bike
The price of the TITAN fan bike is something to behold and undercuts the Rogue Echo bike even further. The Echo bike already was an attack on the $1000 mark in the Airbike sector and TITAN is taking it one step further by making it even cheaper.
Another bonus are the bigger wheels on the TITAN. This is a smart move on TITAN's behalf to differentiate the TITAN fan bike from the rest of the line up in fan bikes. These big wheels are great for the outdoors or a garage gym with very rough surfaces.
Cons of the TITAN fan bike
The cons of the TITAN fan bike are:
The computer unit and arrangement of the buttons is not as convenient as with other vendors on the market. The computer of the Rogue Echo bike has different programs on speed dial beside the panel and the display is also bigger. The display is also a little removed from you so that your sweat won't drop as easily on it. If you lean forward on the TITAN fan bike on a strenuous session, your sweat will be all over the screen.
Chain drives are cheaper and easier to build but also make for a less smooth transition of force to the flywheel and make the machine more prone to malfunction. This is more of a consideration for very heavy users, as it takes some time to get a chain to break, but still, something to consider, especially in commercial settings.
Overall the TITAN fan bike is one of the air bikes that feels the flimsiest of the different products which are available in the market from bigger vendors. This is TITAN's style of cutting corners where they can to bring you the cheapest possible viable product for a given purpose. If you want to save money, you'll like it.
Alternatives to the TITAN Fan bike
Alternatives to the TITAN fan bike are:
NordicTrack VU 19
The Rogue Echo bike has been the disruptor in the market of air bikes. It was the first air bike of a reputable brand that undercut the $1000 mark while still being sturdy. This is the gold standard and if you want to be sure what you are getting, opt for the Echo bike. I own one myself and have put it to a lot of abuse. The only downside of this bike is that it does not have a screen for watching movies, but that is the same for the TITAN fan bike.
The Nordictrack VU 19 is one of the cheapest bikes in the collection of Nordictrack. This bike is more focused on long-distance cycling and comfort for the masses. You will get a small screen to watch movies or browse the internet. This is what would work for the entire family without intimidating anyone. The only disadvantage is that this bike is $1000 instead of considerably lower like the Rogue echo bike and TITAN fan bike.
The Schwinn Airdyne fan bike is the original market leader in the industry which has been dethroned by the Rogue Echo bike. If you want to buy from a company that has been around for a long time and focuses majorly on cardio machines then Schwinn is the right bet.
Versaclimber is the tool to get if you want to burn the most calories possible in the shortest amount of time on the smallest footprint. A workout on a Versaclimber is relentless and will get your pulse racing and sweat rolling. To top this of these machines also have a very small footprint and therefore save space in any home gym environment. The disadvantages are that you need a high ceiling and that the price is far beyond $1000. If you only want the best and be fast
Conclusion for the TITAN Fan bike
The TITAN fan bike is everything that TITAN stands for. They take a great product where another company took the lead. Then they try to get a share of that market by becoming the cost leader. This is reflected in the product, its finish, and the subtle little details like the sweat dripping directly on the electronics. The Fan bike will do its job and it will do it well. If you want to be proud of your equipment you might want to look somewhere else. But in the end, it is just fitness equipment.
Under desk walking treadmill $489.99
Overview of the TITAN Under desk walking treadmill
The TITAN Under desk treadmill is the only treadmill that TITAN currently stocks. Again, as with all TITAN products, the price tag has been trimmed down as much as possible while you can expect subpar customer service as their portfolio is so vast. That is not bad if you know what you want, know how to work it, and do not mind things doing yourself. The full specifications of the TITAN under desk treadmill are:
- Wide track for ample walking room
- Safety key stops the treadmill if disconnected from the console
- Console fits onto your desktop
- Variable speed in half MPH increments
- Compatible with Standing Desks
- FITSHOW App compatible see instruction manual for details

This is a solid treadmill for a low price to burn more calories during the day when you are working at your desk.
Pros of the TITAN Under desk walking treadmill
The pros of the TITAN Under desk treadmill:
If you want to self build a treadmill desk, you can do this fairly cheap by ordering from TITAN. Combine the under desk treadmill with the A2 single motor sit to stand desk and you have a treadmill desk for under $1000. It won't be the prettiest, fanciest, and have the most features, but it will do the deed for under $1000.
Cons of the TITAN Under desk walking treadmill
The cons of the TITAN under desk treadmill are:
Not for running
Can not fold
Minimal computer unit
The TITAN under desk treadmill is not ideal for running fast. As with most under desk treadmills, they are designed for a very slow walking pace and will not take a prolonged heavy pounding. Especially if you are a big athlete you should be careful.
Compared to other under desk treadmill models the TITAN version can not fold up. If your desk setup should be permanently able to have a treadmill setup that is fine. If you want to change around often you might want to look for a foldable option instead.
The computer of the under desk treadmill is pretty simple and does not incorporate any kind of extras. All it does is that it shows your the steps, calories, or distance you have done. A bonus is that you can place it on the desk so that you do not need a remote or bend under the desk to make adjustments.
Alternatives to the TITAN Under desk walking treadmill
Alternatives to the TITAN under the desk treadmill:
If you are looking for a treadmill the TrueFrom runner is the current king of the court. This self-propelled treadmill has a reputation for the best belt in the business when it comes to self-propelled machines. If you want to accelerate and decelerate fast, this is the right treadmill to simulate a game environment without taking up too much space. While it is the creme de la creme in functionality, the price is astronomical and close to $6000. You can build an entire gym with that or deck your entire team with TITAN under the desk treadmills instead.
The Rogue Echo bike is in my opinion the best choice for a home gym that is focused on performance. For long runs, you can go outside and get your running shoes on. For interval training and burning as many calories as possible in a short amount of time, there is no match for air bikes. Air bikes can accelerate and decelerate fast without costing a fortune. Technically the Jacobs ladder and the Versaclimber burn more calories per minute but they cost more and take up more space. Other Air bikes in the market are usually more than $1000 except the TITAN fan bike which takes a low-budget clone approach to the Echo bike.
The Nordictrack 32i is the flagship treadmill from Nordictrack. This beast has all the bells and whistles including a massive screen as well as incline and decline settings for running. If you want the full running experience and be entertained at the same time, this is the machine to get.IN return you have to give up a considerable share of your living space and wallet share.
Conclusion for the TITAN Under desk walking treadmill
If you do not mind putting your hands and mind into a project you can build a cheap desk treadmill using the TITAN under desk treadmill as the belt. You could also get it as a cheap walker to get more steps in without having to go outside and watch the television. Apart from that, there are better options for a similar price out there, if you take your running and cardio seriously.
Dual Station Heavy Bag Boxing Stand $399.99
Overview of the TITAN Dual Station Heavy Bag Boxing Stand
The TITAN Dual Station Heavy bag Boxing stand enables you to operate two heavy boxing bags at the same time. It scales up to a maximum of 300 lbs. to take the heaviest bags. The T-shaped design also allows you to move freely around each bag for the full boxing experience. The full specifications of this station are:
- Twice the utility of a normal single-arm boxing stand
- Tough steel construction will last for years with proper care
- Sleek powder-coated black paint job adds rust resistance
- Weight capacity (in conjunction with the Boxing Stand) is 300 lbs.
- Stabilizer bar gives additional strength to your boxing stand
- Base Plate: 12" x 12"
- Height: 88" or 102"
- Arm Length: 44"
- Capacity: 300 lbs.
- Weight: 115 lbs.
- Material: 11 Gauge Steel
This is a great station to get if the ceiling in your gym is too high to install bags by drilling them overhead. When you get 3 - 6 of these in one line you can train a class without limiting them in circling around the bags. This station is massive and once it is installed it is near to impossible to move. Good for very heavy punches and kicks. Bad if you want a more modular design for your gym.
Pros of the TITAN Dual Station Heavy Bag Boxing Stand
The pros of the TITAN dual Station heavy bag boxing equipment:
Outdoor / indoor
Bag swings free
The dual station heavy bag boxing stand from TITAN can be installed indoors or outdoors on any surface you may like. All you need is the proper equipment to drive the anchors into the ground. If you are not familiar with how to do this and do not have the equipment I recommend that you get a handyman/woman to do the installation for you.
This boxing stand is symmetric in its design which makes it easier to keep people apart for group training and organize space. Putting a couple of these up in a line can create a safe and controllable group training environment where athletes can bob and weave while still being observed by the coach.
Compared to other installations where you might have the uprights getting in the way or you are too close to the wall, in this setup, the bags are swinging freely. Definitely worth it, especially if you have no other place to mount your boxing bags.
Cons of the TITAN Dual Station Heavy Bag Boxing Stand
The cons of the TITAN dual station Heavy Bag Boxing stand are:
Anchored to ground
This boxing stand needs to be anchored to the ground. This means you either need to spend money on someone who has the tools, rent the tools, or buy them yourself. If you are a savvy builder yourself that is no problem, but if you are not this will add another $100 - $300 to the buy price depending on which route you pick and who is available in your local area. Once you have installed it, it will stay where it is and not move anywhere else. This is great when you are a world-class martial artist who abuses this thing daily. Not so great if you run 5 - 6six classes a day with varying skill levels and class sizes. Then you might want to move it out of the way from time to time.
The construction is big and therefore not ideally suited for any basement gym or dingy dungeon with low ceilings. Pay attention to the height and if your ceiling is already low, you might as well utilize it to hang bags from. No need to get this rig, if you can plaster your ceiling with sandbag anchors as these also are not in the way, once you remove the bag for a bigger class.
Remember that you are paying $300 just for the rig in this setup. For that money, you can get a complete kit of gloves, guards, and a bag in some shops. Just be smart about what else you can get for your money, especially if you have to equip an entire boxing / martial arts gym for multiple purposes.
Alternatives to the TITAN Dual Station Heavy Bag Boxing Stand
Alternatives to the TITAN Dual Station Heavy bag boxing stand are:
The heavy-duty four bag boxing stand is the flagship boxing stand from TITAN. You will get a complete rig with four eye hooks to put a bag on. This is the ideal station for a home gym of a dedicated martial artist who wants to have variation in the bags he/she trains on. It can also be a good station to house all of your specialty punching bags in a space-efficient manner. The disadvantages of this rig are that the uprights can be in the way of a proper boxing drill and that you pay almost $600 just for infrastructure and no bags. If you can install them on the ceiling it is cheaper and more modular.
The adjustable heavy bag boxing stand is the one bag alternative to the dual station. If you lack the space for the dual station and clearly want a bag on a massive stand, go for this one. Otherwise, get the Dual station as the amount of hassle to install is the same, but the price is only minimally higher. In return, you get two hooks to hang bags from.
The dual station for boxing speed bag and heavy bag from TITAN is the free-standing option that can take a speed bag and heavy bag. This rig does not need to be bolted to the ground and provides two eyehooks for your bags. Besides, it comes in at about $160 which is a considerable amount of money to save compared to the dual station for $400. If you have an honest look at your physic and your technique, do you really need a fish trailer hook to keep your bag in place? In most cases, the answer will be no. Still, this station is more likely to move around when you give it a proper beating.
The RDX free standing punching bag is an option that provides a pinching bag with suction cups for indoor use. The base can be weighted down with sand or water. For the price of the dual station, you can get about two of these. The advantage is that these stand by themselves and can be moved out of the way if you need to. The disadvantage is that the base provides you to get really close to the bag for practicing close uppercuts or moving in and out of clinches.
The RDX Heavy punching bag can be gotten in various sets. For nearly $200 you can get a full set with gloves, a punching bag, and 15 other pieces to get it mounted to the ceiling or wall. If you are a beginner this is a better option to get your boxing gym started as long as you can drill the bag into the wall or ceiling.
The RDX hanging filled face is a special bag that simulates the shape of a body. This can also be gotten with anchors to mount it to a wall or the ceiling. If you are looking into the dual station to be able to have different bags in your gym, you might want to consider this as an alternative.
Conclusion for the TITAN Dual Station Heavy Bag Boxing Stand
This is a good investment for a gym that needs to provide for multiple free-swinging boxing bags and can build an alleyway with three to six of these. Especially if your ceiling is too high to hang any bags from. If you have low ceilings you are probably better off to get a proper anchor for your heavy bags for overhead. If you want to keep things modular in your gym this station is not a good option as it needs to be anchored to the ground.
Adjustable Heavy bag Boxing stand $299.99
Overview of the TITAN Adjustable Heavy bag Boxing stand
The adjustable heavy bag Boxing stand can handle up to 300 lbs in a boxing bag and needs to be anchored to the ground. This is the right choice if you get a massive monster of a punching bag into your gym. Especially if for some reason you can not mount it to a wall or ceiling. This is a good choice if you want to put your bag outside or into a gym with very high ceilings where you can bolt things to the ground. The full list of features includes:
- 360-degree access around bag
- (2) adjustable height options
- Easy bolt together design
- Gusseted footplate for extra strength and stability
- Vertical design occupies minimal floor space
- Base Plate: 12-in x 12-in.
- Adjustable Height: 7 ft 4-in. or 8 ft 6-in.
- Bag Boom Length: 48-in.
- Material: 11 Gauge Steel
- Weight Capacity: 300 lb.
- Product Weight: 115 lb.
If you are planning on getting a very heavy punching bag then this boxing stand is your friend as long as you know how to attach it to the floor.
Pros of the TITAN Adjustable Heavy bag Boxing stand
The pros of the Titan adjustable heavy bag stand:
Can take a very heavy bag
Free movement around the bag
In this setup, you can attach one single bag which weighs up to 300 pounds. If you want to work with the heaviest possible bags and you are concerned about mounting it on the wall or ceiling, the TITAN heavy adjustable bag stand can be your solution. You will your bag hanging from a sturdy frame that is bolted to the ground. It will provide you with enough space to circle around the bag to get together a proper workout without being limited in your range of motion.
Cons of the TITAN Adjustable Heavy bag Boxing stand
The cons of the TITAN adjustable heavy bag boxing stand are:
The installation can be troublesome if you are not a handyman yourself or do not own the necessary equipment to drill the anchors into concrete. A proper drill and the knowledge to combine with it cost a little bit of money and time. If you are not apt at installing things in walls or on the ground you might even need to hire a handyman which adds to the cost of putting up your bag.
This stand needs some considerable space in your gym to function properly. If you already have limited space in your home gym or basement gym you might be better off pushing the punch bag to the wall or hook it to the ceiling. At the wall, it does not eat up as much floor space. If it is put in the ceiling, you can remove it when you want to do other things in the space. Once the TITAN adjustable heavy bag stand is installed, you will not move it and space can only be used for boxing.
Only consider this stand if you are really serious about boxing. Most likely you will get the stand for $300, a bag for $300 - $500, and some other proper equipment to get serious. If you consider the stand to hang a $50 kids bag from it you got your planning wrong. Also, $300 for a stand is steep, if you are a DIY master and can get some metal and anchors yourself to build something yourself. I could not do that, but I know there some very savvy people out there.
Alternatives to the TITAN Adjustable Heavy bag Boxing stand
The TITAN heavy-duty four bag boxing stand is a good option when you want to house a lot of specialty bags in a tight space. The construction will make it possible to hang multiple bags in a rack where you either can stand on the inside or the outside. Circling the bags will be a little limited as the uprights of the construction can get in the way. Apart from that, it is a great way to put a multitude of bags in one place. The downsides are the $600 price tag just for the stand and space it will eat up in your gym.
The dual station heavy bag stand is in my opinion the best compromise between the heavy stand and the four bag stand. The design allows your athletes to freely circle around both of the bags on each side. YOu can still use some very heavy bags on each eyehook and it will be easier to get 3 - 6 of these in a line to train more people in parallel. Be aware that this will only work in gyms with enough clearance to the ceiling. If you are already operating with very low ceilings you might want to consider getting some proper ceiling anchors and work with those instead.
The dual station for a boxing speed bag and the heavy bag comes in at only $170 and does not need to be bolted to the ground. This is the right choice for the recreational athlete that only wants to do boxing to burn some calories. If your fists are planned to be weapons of mass construction that leave a hole in the wall, you might want to consider a different station as this will move around. The structure also limits somewhat to circle around the bags to get more out of your workouts.
The RDX free standing punching bag with suction cups is an option for indoor use. This bag can be weighted down at the base with water or sand to make it more stable. While it is not ideal for a full boxing workout as the base inhibits to get very close to the bag, it can still be great for beginner classes and kids classes. Especially the option to move it out of the way quickly without having to drill anything into a wall or ceiling might make this a good option for some scenarios.
The RDX heavy punching bag is an affordable bag that can come with up to 17 pieces for your home gym as a starter kit. If you are not crazy like me when it comes to equipment then this is more than good enough to get you started on your boxing journey.
The RDX hanging filled face is an optional punching bag that simulates a torso with a head. This is a lot cheaper than the alternative Terry Torso adjustable bags you can find in some gyms.
Conclusion for the TITAN Adjustable Heavy bag Boxing stand
The TITAN adjustable heavy bag boxing stand is the right choice when you want to hang a monster of a bag into your gym like the Super Pro Gigantor which weighs 60kg or even bigger. If you just want to do boxing for leisure or need to train a lot of people at the same time, then there might be some smarter, smaller solutions for your gym to think about.

Overview of the TITAN Magnetic resistance Rowing fitness machine
The TITAN fitness magnetic rower is a low budget option to get a rowing machine into your home gym or professional gym. While the price is low and it also sits very low to the ground it is not great for high-performance rowing. If you are looking for easy resistance like a stroll in the park this is the right machine for you. If you want to crank the handle like there is no tomorrow you have to go with one of the air resistance or water resistance rowers that are more upmarket. The full specifications of this machine are:
Dimensions: 60-in x 22.5-in x 19-in.
Seat: 12.5-in x 9.75-in x 2-in.
Footrests: 10.375-in x 4.5-in.
Handles: 16-in x 1-in
Track material: Aluminum
Frame material: Steel
Weight Capacity: 250lb.
Product weight: 50lb.
- Great for cardiovascular and aerobic exercise
- 8 resistance settings
- Large LCD screen to count time, calories and number of row pulls
- Large pedals are slip-resistant with adjustable straps for feet
- Easy to fold and stand up between usage
- Heavy-duty construction with padded seat and non-slip handlebar grip
This is great if you just want to stay active and do not want to go outside for any kind of reason. It will also be easier on your joints than a treadmill as you can stay seated while using it. It will not fit under the bed but can be put into a tall closet when it is upright.
Pros of the TITAN Magnetic resistance Rowing fitness machine
The pros of the TITAN magnetic resistance rowing machine are:
The mechanics of the TITAN magnetic resistance rower allow that it is very silent to use. You do not have the air or water noises from the higher-priced professional models. So if you want to use it when the children are asleep in the next or you are in a big apartment complex with pesky neighbors, this can do the trick.
For a rower, this is very cheap. Most other rowers will start around $400 and go up to $2000 depending on what kind of resistance and media package you are getting. So if you just want a low price option to train at home without a lot of hassle, the magnetic rower is for you.
Another bonus of the TITAN magnetic rowing fitness machine is that the seat is very close to the floor. This leaves a lot of room if you are big to sit on it and fully stretch out on each row.
Cons of the TITAN Magnetic resistance Rowing fitness machine
The cons of the TITAN magnetic Rowing fitness machine are:
Outdated computer unit
The magnetic resistance itself is prone to break and you can easily overpull it. If you are reasonably strong and go at this machine with full force the magnetic resistance will break and you have a free-spinning wheel for your pull. This makes it impossible to use this machine if you want to go all balls out on interval training. This machine has been designed for a smooth, even ride.
You want cardio equipment to be light so that you can move it around easily, but not so light that you feel like you might crush it. It depends on how big you are, but I weigh 105kg and I am 185cm tall. When I sit on this I feel like I would destroy it in 2-3 proper sessions, but then it clearly was not designed with the kind of workout in mind that I want from a rower.
The footrests are made of cheap plastic which will probably not withstand the test of time unless you are very timid with it. Also, the computer unit is outdated and only provides minimal information.
Alternatives to the TITAN Magnetic resistance Rowing fitness machine
These are the alternatives for the TITAN magnetic resistance rowing machine:
Concept 2 rower
The Rogue Echo Bike is my personal go-to option for a proper interval cardio machine that does not cost a fortune. This bike is sturdy, the details have been taken care of, and the computer unit makes your life easier. It does not have any entertainment on board, but if you want to do a proper interval training bout, this is the machine to get.
If you intend to row the concept 2 rower model D is the industry standard which has been around for years all over the world. This machine is operated with air resistance and a chain, some newer models with a belt. This rower can be used by athletes of all ages and skill levels to improve their rowing and endurance. The resistance increases based on how hard you pull the handle in the beginning. The only disadvantage is that it costs about 3 -4 times what this magnetic rower costs.
If you are looking for a machine to keep fit at home that is not too hard on your joints and can be easily stored, then the Total Gym can be an option. It is not great as a rowing machine but is more versatile to train all of your muscle groups. Besides, it can also be stored under the bed.
If you want to stay and do not want to get outside because you are scared or want to stay close to your safe environment at home than an under the desk treadmill is also a great option.
Conclusion for the TITAN Magnetic resistance Rowing fitness machine
The TITAN magnetic resistance rowing machine is a good choice when you want a rower for your home that is silent, cheap, and not too challenging. Ideal for a nursing home where people might be afraid to go outside. If you are a serious athlete or hobby warrior I personally think you are saving at the wrong end as you will rip this thing apart in no time.

- MSLEDDHA - Double Handle
- MSLEDLAWN - Lawn-Boy Handle

Pros of the TITAN Titan Pro sled System
The pros of the TITAN Pro sled system are:
Compared to a butcher or other bigger sled, this sled is fairly small and easily be stored upright against a wall or in some nook or cranny in your home gym or professional gym. It can also easily be thrown on the back of a trailer to train somewhere else where the view is nice or you have more space to do your exercises. Just bring a plate or two with you depending on what you want to do.
With a wide range of different attachments, you can challenge yourself to push and pull this sled from various angles and positions. This keeps the interaction with this tool fresh and fun, especially if you have a big lawn or area in your commercial gym where you can move this thing about.
Compared to other competitors in the market you pay the lowest price in the market for a comparable product with the TITAN Pro sled. If you want to build an entire home gym on a budget, but do not want to compromise on how much stuff you are getting, then TITAN fitness is one of the most complete addresses you can currently find.
Cons of the TITAN Titan Pro sled System
The cons of the TITAN Pro sled are:
Looks more useful than it might be
The cost can balloon quickly
As long as you are not a professional coach or team member with easy access to a pitch, then this sled might look more useful than it will actually be. Are you really going to be hauling this thing through the neighborhood risking that someone calls the police because you are damaging the precious lawn or pavement? If you have a massive garage or basement where you do not run into the wall after you accelerated just a tiny bit, be my guest. Otherwise, you might get something stationary to take care of your conditioning needs.
As with all products from TITAN they can have some minor to major issues on quality control on their products. When your tactic is to be the cost leader for any product you put into your portfolio you will need to cut some corners. This usually comes in the form of using lower quality paints, sharp edges on drilled holes, no or poor manuals, thinner plastics on buffer zones, etc. When you observe TITAN across their products you can see that there are several reports of this happening. This does not mean that what you get has to have minor to major defects, it just means that it is way more likely than with other vendors. Especially with a sled where you will abuse the material quite a bit, you might want to consider something that will live longer. Racks and barbells are harder to break, therefore you might consider these from TITAN.
Another risk with the Pro sled is that the cost can balloon quickly. Once you start looking into the attachments you can easily rack up $500 for this sled. For this price, you can almost get a fan bike from TITAN or a Rogue Echo bike which I would recommend over a sled for a home gym.
Alternatives to the TITAN Titan Pro sled System
The heavy-duty HIgh low Push-pull weight sled from TITAN is a clone of the Rogue butcher. This sled uses a tripod/tricycle design instead of a sled design. It is bigger than the Pro sled and can therefore take a bigger load. This is the type of machine you want to get when you want to practice pushing trucks or other Rugby / NFL players. It is not great for sprints or any kind of running exercises and also harder to store than the sled.
The low bar push pull drag sled is a simple design to add weight to your sprints and comes with a small loading pin to add the weights. With $100 the price tag is very reasonable and you get everything you need to add a bit of resistance to your runs. The frame is stiff and has not any holes for attachments so you will only be able to use the sled as is without any modification. You will also drag the sled directly on the surface as it does not have any plastic buffers, so it is better to be used on grass than asphalt.
The power weighted sled with leash and harness is the cheapest sled you can get from TITAN. The plate pin is higher than for the low bar push pull drag sled so you can put more weight on it. The pin can also be collapsed for easier transport in a car or on a truck. This is a great little sled if you want to drive to the next hill in your area and do some sprints with resistance. This sled has no buffer so you will rub it directly on concrete or grass, depending on how you use it.
The XPO trainer 2 is the current gold standard in push-pull sleds on the market. It has an innovative resistance wheel in the construction which makes it heavier to push the harder you are pushing. This means that the resistance will increase the more you put into it. It also has wheels attached which makes it more palatable to use in a residential area without someone calling the cops or local counsel on you due to noise or damage to property. The downside is the high price and that you can not simulate a heavy resistance start to overcome a block. It will roll nicely from the start and get harder rather than you having to overcome the first resistance.
The Rogue Dogsled 1.2 is the current flagship sled from Rogue. This is the most expensive sled from Rogue with the most attachments available. If you are planning on really abusing the heck out of the sled you are getting this might be the better choice. The finer details are usually better in Rogue products which are relevant to a tool like a sled. That being said you will also pay a higher price than for the TITAN Pro sled.
The Rogue Echo dog sled is Rogue's toned-down version of the Dogsled to be more cost-competitive. It is not as fancy and has not as many attachments as the Dogsled 1.2 but will do the job.
Conclusion for the TITAN Titan Pro sled System
The TITAN Pro sled System is a good alternative for anyone who wants to save money, has space, and will mainly use it on grass rather than asphalt. Anyone who will use their sled on asphalt on a more regular basis, wants their attachments to tightly fit, and has a little extra money to spend might want to go for the Rogue Sled 1.2. If all you are looking for is a throwaway sled to keep on the back of your truck, go for the Power weighted drag sled with the harness.
Heavy Duty High Low push Pull weight sled $168.99
Overview of the TITAN Heavy Duty High Low push Pull weight sled
The heavy-duty High low Push-pull weight sled from TITAN is a clone of the Rogue butcher sled. This sled has two load pins and is built for heavy loads to be pushed around. This sled has a considerable size and is, therefore, harder to store than a dog sled. This is the right choice when you want to make big burly Rugby players and NFL players move seemingly immovable objects. The full specifications are:
- Heavy Duty 11 gauge steel
- Dual Plate Horns at 10" High
- High/Low push/pull handles with strap hook
- Black Powder Coated frame
- Breaks down easily for Quick transport or storage
- 600 lb plus Capacity
- Post spacing: 26-in.
- Dimensions: 46-in (L) x 30.5-in (W) x 36-in (H).
- Sled Skis: 8-in x 5-in x 8mm thick
- Weight: 64 lb.
This is a big boy toy and needs space. Do not consider it when you can not exercise outdoors or have considerable space indoors.
Pros of the TITAN Heavy Duty High Low push Pull weight sled
The pros of the TITAN Heavy Duty High Low push-pull weight sled are:
This sled is all about moving as much weight on a sled as possible without paying big bucks for it. If that is the kind of thing you need, you found your companion in the TITAN Heavy Duty High Low push-pull weight sled.
Cons of the TITAN Heavy Duty High Low push Pull weight sled
The cons of the TITAN Heavy Duty High Low push-pull set are:
While the size is great if you are looking for a big sled it can become a problem when you do not have the space to store the sled. Especially in a home gym, it can just get in the way as you will not use it as often as other equipment and can not just lean it against a wall like a dog sled to store it away.
As TITAN offers some of the cheapest equipment around that also comes with its perils. There is a higher possibility, that you have to force some of the parts as they do not fit snug. This can be fixed when you are a good handyman, but can also become so extreme, that you might question why you bought something new from TITAN rather than used from a different brand.
Alternatives to the TITAN Heavy Duty High Low push Pull weight sled
If you run a respectable home gym and want to add a sled, the TITAN Pro sled might be a better choice from TITAN. If your goal is to add some resistance to your sprints and push a bit of weight around, the TITAN Pro Sled is more than enough in capacity and offers more versatility while taking up less space.
The low bar push pull drag sled from Rogue is a simple $100sled that comes with everything you need. It is simple and can be used with a harness or at the handle. A very cheap way of getting fit and not to be sneered at, especially if you only use low loads and find the Pro Sled too expensive and the Heavy Duty sled too big.
The power bar weighted sled with leash and harness is the ideal sled to keep in the back of your truck or car. If you like to take a sled outside to your favorite hill, this is the one to get. The plate pin can be collapsed so that it can be easily stored in tight spots. For the price of roughly $80, you can even consider getting more than one and just wreck them. The only downside is that this sled has a lower plate capacity and the metal drags directly on the ground.
Conclusion for the TITAN Heavy Duty High Low push Pull weight sled
The heavy Duty high low push-pull sled from TITAN is a good choice if you want to save money, have space to run and store it, and just occasionally do heavy loads on it. If you have a team of players that will abuse this sled around the clock you might want to upgrade to the Rogue butcher as it will last longer.
Dual Station boxing stand for speed and heavy bag $164.99

For $160 it is also not too expensive for a full stand for two bags. Wall mounts are usually around $100 per bag and can go up to $400 depending on how fancy you want to make it.
Cons of the TITAN Heavy Dual Station boxing stand for speed and heavy bag
The cons of the dual station heavy bag boxing stand for a speed bag and heavy bag are:
Station can move around
Limited space to move around the bag
Makeshift look and feel
If you are heavy yourself and decide to train on a very heavy bag this station can move around the floor. If you follow the logic of getting a bag that 3 to 4 times more expensive than the stand you are getting you might want to rethink your approach. You will not enjoy your super fancy heavy bag when you hook it up to a makeshift stance.
.This stand only provides limited space to move around the bag as the feet can get it in the way. If you just want to pound away on a bag like a maniac, this is it. If you want to bob and weave and simulate a fight, this stand will get in your way.
As with most of the solutions that you do not bolt into the wall or to the ground, this station has a makeshift feel about it. Just do not expect to get something rock solid for small bucks.
Alternatives to the TITAN Dual Station boxing stand for speed and heavy bag
Alternatives to the TITAN dual station boxing stand for a speed bag and heavy bag are:
Dual station Heavy bag boxing stand
The dual station Heavy bag boxing stand needs to be anchored to the ground but will provide enough stability for a massive bag workout. It will also provide the freedom to move around the bag without the uprights or feet of the station getting in the way.
So heavy duty 4 bag stand is a good option to house your special bags in your home gym or a professional gym. The ones you do not as often and you also do not want to circle around. If you want to have a full boxing workout with this stand, the uprights can get in the way, especially when you use big bags.

The adjustable heavy boxing stand is the ideal solution to provide one massive heavy bag in a prime slot. With this stand, you can circle around the bag without being close to a wall or worrying about taking the anchor out of the ceiling.

The RDX free standing punching bag is an alternative with suction cups that can be installed indoors. The base can be weighted down by sand or water for more stability. With this, you can be flexible and pace the bag anywhere in your gym and remove it when needed. The only disadvantage is that this bag does not allow to go very close as the base gets in the way.
The RDX heavy punching bag is available in several packages that include wall mounts or ceiling mounts. If you just want to start boxing at home for leisure without becoming the next Muhammad Ali, this is a great start.
If you are just looking for a specialty bag that looks like a person the RDX filled hanging face is a cheaper option than the Terry Torso.
Conclusion for the TITAN Dual Station boxing stand for speed and heavy bag

Cons of the TITAN Power strike punching bag
The cons of the TITAN Power strike punching bag are:
No body punches
Can swing a lot
With this bag, you will not be able to do a full boxing workout, as it does not allow for simulating body punches. As the bag is quite short it is more likely to swing than a regular punching bag.
Alternatives to the TITAN Power strike punching bag
The TITAN Muay Thai boxing bag is a classic punch bag with no added thrills or frills. You get a 72-in punch bag for a reasonable price and might even get more than just one at a time.

The pivoting Reflex Trainer can be fixed to the wall to train your ducking and blocking skills. The arm rotates and you can duck it or block it. Basically, a boxing bag that punches back. The only disadvantage is that you can not really punch it hard.
The RDX free-standing punch bag is an easy solution for the home or in a commercial gym. With its suction cups and the fillable base, you can fix it in place and weigh it down. While it is versatile it is not ideal for real boxing training, as the base hinders you from getting close to the punch bag.
The RDX heavy punching bag comes in various colors and sets. This is a great starter bag to get ready at your home with a full set of gloves, wall mount, and other little starter gimmicks like a jumping rope.
The RDX hanging filled face is an option if you want to have a bag that is shaped more like a human but is not as expensive as a Terry Torso.
Conclusion for the TITAN Power strike punching bag
The TITAN power strike punching bag is good if you want to remove it often from the hook and exchange it for different toys often. It can also be a good idea when you want to practice hitting a moving head with your foot as speed bags usually do not take too kindly to that. Apart from this shouldn't be your first bag, as you can not incorporate a full routine with it.

Cons of the TITAN Muay Thai heavy boxing bag
The cons of the TITAN Muay Thai heavy bag are:
No hit markers
Not body shaped
This is a very big bag which is hard to move by yourself. If you want to change your gym setup around often this might not be the best bag to get as you have to unhook it and haul it somewhere else like a dead body. Because of the length of this bag, it is also hard to carry on your shoulder to move it around.
Some other bags of this length have specific hit areas marked on them to make the training easier. Some people think that these are helpful, others do not. This is a matter of taste and training styles, but this bag has no markers.
Some trainers and athletes like punching bags which are shaped like real humans torsos to train to throw a punch. This is a classic cylindric design and nothing too fancy.
Alternatives to the TITAN Muay Thai heavy boxing bag
Alternatives to the TITAN Muay Thai boxing bag are:
The TITAN power strike punching bag is a good alternative if you want to move your bag around a lot. Based on the shape and size of this bag it is easier to unhook and place somewhere else compared to the Muay Thai bag. The disadvantage of this bag is that it is not very long, so you can not practice low kicks and body punches.

The RDX Heavy punching bag comes in different sets for beginners that cover all you need. You can get this with gloves, a wall-mount, and a skipping rope. Spending around $150 will get you covered for a starter kit to get going home.
The RDX filled face is an option to get some variety into your training. Not necessarily the first choice for a bag, but definitely a strong contender as a second bag.
Conclusion for the TITAN Muay Thai heavy boxing bag
The TITAN Muay Thai boxing back is a great pick to get a bag for everything in one go at a reasonable price. There is not a lot you can do wring for so much bag for so little money.
88lb Heavy boxing punching bag $109.99
Overview of the TITAN 88lb Heavy boxing punching bag
The Titan 88lb Heavy boxing punching bag is a classic heavy punching bag that you see all over the country. This is a solid punching bag for a more than reasonable price. Not the best in the market, but it will suck up a lot of your punches.
Product weight: 88lb
- Durable outer shell provides consistent striking performance
- Mixed fill contains sanitized, synthetic fibers for prime shock absorption on impact

This is a well-priced bag that does what it says on the tin. The design is understated so it will fit many different gyms. With this bag, you can start or buy in bulk for your commercial gym without breaking the bank.
Cons of the TITAN 88lb Heavy boxing punching bag
The cons of the TITAN 88lb Heavy boxing punching bag are:
Not the most durable boxing bag
Does not come in a set
Compared to high-end boxing bags ranging from 400 to 600 Dollars this is not the most durable, fanciest, or hardcore bag. You can get bags filled with water, pebbles, and all kinds of media and made of a stronger leather than this one. So if you have the Klitschko brothers pounding your bag day in and out maybe get something a little more solid.
This bag is only a bag for putting $100 on the table. With a bit of research, you can find some deals for slightly more where you get the gloves and some other small items thrown into the trolley too.
Alternatives to the TITAN 88lb Heavy boxing punching bag
The power strike punching bag is an alternative to the 88lb that is easier to move around and swings more, especially when kicked. This is the better bag when you only want to box and get the bag off the hook easily and often.
The Muay Thai boxing bag is a good alternative to the 88lb bag that costs slightly more but is therefore longer. This will enable you to also practice low kicks on this bag while giving up a little bit of thickness compared to the 88lb bag.
The pivoting reflex training bar is a great alternative to another 88lb bag to train your reflexes for blocking and ducking. The bar will spin and hit you when you give it a push if you do not get your guard up in time or duck away.
The RDX free standing punch bag is about $100 more than the TITAN 88lb punch bag. The big advantage is that you do not hook this bag up to the wall or the ceiling. To provide stability it can be filled with sand or water at the base. One big downside of free-standing punch bags is the base itself. As it is there, you can not get up close to the bag to simulate fighting and clinching.
The RDX heavy punching bag might be the better choice for beginners as you can get it in a nice set with gloves, a wall-mount, and other extras. This will only be slightly more than $100.
The RDX hanging filled face might not be the first boxing bag you are getting it maybe the second. It simulates the shape of a body with a face on it without costing you the money of a terry torso.
Conclusion for the TITAN 88lb Heavy boxing punching bag
The 88lb TITAN heavy boxing punching bag is a great extra to throw into your shopping basket if you intend to build an entire gym with TITAN. Just get the bag and something to hook it on the wall on the same delivery as the rest. If you buy in bulk because all of your boxing bags in your boxing gym need to be replaced this is also a good bet. Just keep 1 - 5 of the more expensive bags for your veterans but for beginners, this is more than enough.

These Muay Thai pads are good value for money to beat the crap out of. If you are already building a TITAN-based boxing corner in your gym just throw these in. For the weekend warrior who trains with his son, wife, or friend, these can be a nice addition to your home gym.
Cons of the TITAN Muay Thai pads
The cons of the Muay Thai pads are:
Not from a dedicated boxing reseller
Can come apart under professional use
What you have to keep in mind with these Muay Thai Pads is that they are mass-produced for rebranding somewhere in China. That does not necessarily make them bad pads, as they are relatively cheap, but these have been produced in a factory that intends to label them for a buyer that then resells them en masse. This means that these have not been designed for a boxing gym where they will be pounded by several athletes 3 - 8 hours a day straight. If you are looking for something to cover that need get in touch with a local store for boxing equipment and ask them what is good and what they have in store.
Alternatives to the Muay Thai pads
RDX T13 boxing Gloves
RDX Gloves and Pad set
RDX Leather boxing gloves
The RDX T13 Training gloves are good gloves to use on a heavy bag for training. They cost slightly more than the Muay Thai pads and you have a choice of color between gold and red. It is your choice what you would prefer for your sparring at home or in a commercial gym between two pairs of gloves or a combo of gloves and pads.
The RDX Gloves and pad set has roughly the same price as the TITAN Muay Thai pad. This is probably the better option for the weekend warrior who wants to train with someone who or she knows as it is better value for money for a lower quality glove and pad.
The RDX A2 Fight Lace-up leather Boxing gloves are approved by several boxing federations for competition and roughly cost $130. This would be a good option if you want to take your boxing at home to the next level or want to sparr in a boxing gym for competition.
Conclusion for the Muay Thai pads
The TITAN Muay Thai pads are of reasonable quality and longevity and good for an occasional bout. If they will be pounded around the clock by professional or semi-professional athletes you might want to look for pads in the $100 to $200 range. There other options to satisfy the occasional user which are better value for money. Contacting a local fight store to get information about which gloves are best is a good idea, as they use their own merchandise.

Pros of the TITAN Pivoting Reflex trainer
The Pros of the TITAN Pivoting fitness trainer are:
Can be wall mounted
The first thing to mention is the price which undercuts most special stores you could this item from. This is due to the strategy of TITAN fitness to be a cost leader for all of the products they are presenting in their shop at the cost of quality assurance and customer service. This means you buy it cheap and then have to figure it out yourself and if it is broken you might need to fix it up a little yourself.
This particular reflex trainer can also be mounted on a T-3 series which avoids having to drill it into a wall. With that, it is special in the market of Reflex trainers and something to be looked at for somebody who wants to build an entire home gym based on TITAN products.
Compared to a speed bag and a heavy boxing bag it takes up way less space in your gym. This can be an advantage in spaces that are already constrained.
Compared to free-standing boxing bags and reflex trainers this can be wall-mounted. This is usually better as the free-standing versions tend to be all over the place once an adult has a serious go at them.
Cons of the TITAN Pivoting Reflex trainer
The cons of the Pivotings Reflex trainer are:
Needs to be wall-mounted or attached to a rack
Can not be hit very hard
As a gimmick rather than an essential item
The first disadvantage of the Reflex trainer is that it will not work if you do not mount it properly. If you do not have the option to place a rack in your gym or mount the Reflex trainer to the wall you will not be able to use it.
This Reflex trainer is not a replacement for a heavy bag or a speed bag. You can not hit this machine as hard as a heavy bag as it does not provide the surface to place the punch or kick. While it is great for coordination and reaction times it is not an essential item to become a good boxer. These things can also be addressed by shadow boxing or having simple pieces of string in the ring.
Alternatives to the Pivoting Reflex trainer
The TITAN power strike punching bag is a good option for anyone who wants to move their punching bag around a lot. As long as you have the mount in the ceiling or in the wall you can move this bag around easier compared to other bags because of its shape. Especially good for smaller and lighter athletes that see boxing as a cardio workout rather than a sport to be taken seriously in itself.
The TITAN MuayThai boxing bag is one of the best value for money bags from TUTAN you can get. It is heavy and long and is therefore suitable to place low kicks, body punches, and uppercuts on it. The only downside is that it is quite hard to move it around by yourself, so if you want to change things around often, this might not be the bag for you.
The TItan 88 lb punching bag is TITAN's version of a heavy boxing bag. It is slightly thicker than the Muay Thai bag and they are better suited to athletes over 80kg to hack away at it. The only downside is that it does not go low enough to the ground to work for low kicks.
Conclusion for the Pivoting Reflex trainer
The TITAN pivoting reflex trainer is a great cheap option to get your hand on a pivoting Reflex trainer if you wanted to get one. It is also one of the few ones that are rack-mountable right out of the box, so if you design a gym fully around a rack rather than walls and ceilings, then this is a good option.
Low bar push-pull Drag sled $99.99
Overview of the TITAN Low bar push-pull Drag sled
The low bar push pull drag sled from TITAN is a low price sled option from TITAN that has everything in the box to add resistance to your sprints. The full specifications of this sled are:
- Load the 8" weight post with either standard or Olympic plates to increase difficulty.
- Low Bar design allows for more leverage, giving your quadriceps a burn like no other.
- Includes a harness and carabiners to attach to the sled for sled drags.
- Weight: 36 LB
- Length: 36"
- Width: 24.5"
- Weight Post Length: 8"
This is the easy throw-away option of a sled to be bought in bulk for a commercial gym or as a throwaway option for a home gym.
Pros of the TITAN Low bar push-pull Drag sled
The pros of the Low bar push-pull drag sled are:
Everything in the box
Can be used with a harness or stand-alone
This little sled only costs you $100 which makes it a great option to get for a sled that you intend to wreck anyway. Other sleds will usually start at around $200 or be almost unusable when they drop under $50 for a new piece. This means that you can justify getting two of these and abuse the hell out of the first one to be replaced by the second. For a commercial setting, especially if you have a sled friendly floor, this is a serious consideration to buy for group training.
With this sled, everything you need comes in the package and you are not running a risk of ballooning costs or having to get the extra attachments to use them. This package is plug and plays on arrival if it gets delivered as advertised.
Another advantage of this sled compared to even lower-priced models is that you can use it without a harness based on the handles on each side. Is are fairly low, which makes the workout even harder and maybe not suitable for beginners or anyone who is fairly overweight.
Cons of the TITAN Low bar push-pull Drag sled
The cons of the TITAN low bar push-pull drag sled are:
No Plastic feet to protect the structure itself
Small loading pin
Do not expect high-quality components from a sled that retails at $100. This is to be used until it breaks and then thrown away by a serious athlete or used timidly by someone who just wants to push some weight around once a month.
This sled will directly touch the ground with no buffer in-between. If you intend to use it on concrete it will come apart rather quickly. If you use it on grass or a running track it will not slide very smoothly. So the best use would be in an indoor gym with some kind of rubber mats. If you have this scenario it might even be a good sled for group training and you can get 5 to 10 of them depending on the group sizes you run.
The loading pin for this sled is quite small and also the surface to load the plates on. This is fine if you intend to load 30 - 100 lbs on it for adding some resistance to sprints. If you want to use this sled to train linebackers and Rugby monsters, abandon your plans. To these guys, this thing will be just a toy.
Alternatives to the TITAN Low bar push-pull Drag sled
The TITAN Pro sled is TITAN's clone of the Rogue Dgosled 1.2. It comes with many possible attachments at some extra cost which can keep training interesting. This is a good sled if you are a personal trainer to wealthy clients who expect you to keep things interesting or for an ambitious home gym. If you are training a professional team and want to buy in bulk for high quality because you are using the sleds very often, then the Rogue Dogsled 1.2 would be the better pick. In that setup maybe get all of the different attachments once and a sled to equip them with each.
The TITAN heavy-duty sled is a clone of the Rogue butcher sled. This sled is designed to deliver very high capacity in weight. This is a good sled for a strongman who trains at home and has the space to store it. If you want to use a sled at home for sprints I would lean more towards the TITAN Pro sled. If you are looking for heavy sleds to entertain an NFL or professional rugby team, get a couple to a dozen of the Rogue butcher sleds instead. They hold up longer and your athletes will be happier using them. I only recommend this if your players earn 10.00 thousand to millions a year as a bill for $10.000 for a dozen Rogue butchers won't make a difference in the accounting department, but might make a difference to happiness and performance to the players because you got the good stuff rather than being cheap.
The power weighted sled with leash and harness is the ideal sled to throw in the back of a truck or under a seat. This sled has a pin that you can collapse and therefore store easily. It is also cheaper than Push-Pull Sled. In my opinion, this is the better option for sprints with resistance as they are easier to store and transport if you want to be cheap about it.
The XPO trainer 2 sled is the ultimate gimmick in the realm of sleds. It has big wheels and can therefore be used in suburbia without being sued by the neighbors. It works with a resistance mechanic that makes it harder to push or pull the sled the harder you work at it which is similar to the resistance techniques used in fan bikes, air rowers, or water rowers. This is the ideal sled for the weekend warrior who can afford and store it as the quality is high.
The Rogue Dogsled is the most modular Dogsled you can currently get in the market. compared to the TITAN Pro sled it has a higher quality finish and a little more attention to detail. In return, it costs more money. If you are intending to get this sled, also buy some extra plastic feet for it to exchange, once the first ones have worn off. This is a good sled for the serious home athlete with a big backyard or a team that wants to create the speed of their players. It is not the ideal sled for anyone who wants to get stronger to move stones, trucks, or big burly men, as it can not be loaded as heavy as other models.
The Rogue Echo dogsled is an option that moves the purchase price of the sled closer to the TITAN Pro without providing as many options for attachments. If you want a Rogue sled and do not care about all of the different attachments, this is a good pick and also sturdier than the Push-pull drag sled from Titan. The only downside here is that it is harder to store and that the harness and leash are sold separately.
Conclusion for the TITAN Low bar push-pull Drag sled
If you want to make your kids happy, have a throwaway sled yourself, or just use this tool very occasionally in your training, then this is the right sled to get. If you take your sled work very seriously and you want to focus on speed it is a choice between the TITAN Pro sled and the Rogue Dogsled 1.2. If you are considering a sled to increase your strength for very heavy pushes and pulls you should be comparing the TITAN heavy-duty sled and the Rogue butcher.
Power weighted sled with a leash and harness $84.99
Overview of the TITAN Power weighted sled with leash and harness
The TITAN power weighted sled with a leash and harness is one of the cheapest and smallest sleds you can get from TITAN. The best feature about this sled is the loading pin which can be flipped down. This makes the sled an item you can take anywhere without too much hassle. The full specifications of this sled are:
- Use with Olympic plates
- Includes leash/harness
- Use on grass, carpet, or concrete
- Little assembly required
- Max capacity: 500 lb
- Powder Coated finish
- Weight: 37 LBS
- Width: 16"
- Length: 24"
- Leash / harness length: 10 ft.
There is little you can do wring with this sled, especially if you only use small weights and focus on acceleration from a starting stance.
Pros of the TITAN Power weighted sled with leash and harness
The pros of this sled are:
Ready to use package
With this package, you get everything you need to get going once it arrives at your doorstep, as long as you have some plates. This saves you the hassle and money to look for a harness and leash which match and can be hooked to the sled.
The price of this sled is minimal and therefore can turn it into an item to not put too much thought into for someone who serious about their own gym or training a team. Get it, use, test it, break it, or abandon it. You will not cry too many tears about an $80 purchase for your fitness.
The very special nice touch about this sled is that you can put down the loading pin. With this, you can easily transport it in a car or a truck to use it on a nearby hill.
Cons of the TITAN Power weighted sled with leash and harness
The cons of the TITAN weighted sled with a leash and harness are:
Small maximum load
Can topple over
Direct contact with the ground
This sled is rather small and will therefore not take a lot of weight. You only have one loading pin where other models in the market have up to four depending on what you are willing to invest.
The loading pin for this model is a little too high for the base which means that it can topple over easier than other sleds when you do not pull it in a straight line. If you load it heavily this won't be an issue, but for light sprinting loads this can get annoying.
This sled will not take any extra attachments unless you weld them on.
This sled operates with direct contact to the ground with no plastic buffer in between. If you use it on rock or concrete it will suffer and ultimately break and you have to replace the entire unit, rather than just the plastic feet. You can fix this with a bit of DIY or just replace it as this is not the end of the world.
Alternatives to the TITAN Power weighted sled with leash and harness
Alternatives to the TITAN power weighted sled with leash and harness are:
The TITAN pro sled system gives you a stable sled with plastic feet and the option to use multiple attachments. This is the right sled for the home gym owner who wants to take it seriously but not spent the money on Rogue Fitness equipment. It can have some minor issues with the finish on delivery as with most TiTAN products, but that will not be an issue if you are willing to put some elbow grease in. For professional athletes, I would recommend the Rogue Dogsled 1.2 instead.
The low bar push pull drag sled is slightly more expensive than the weighted sled. the two big advantages are that it can be used bi-directionally and has low handles to also push and pull the sled without a harness.
The TITAN heavy-duty sled is the right choice for strongmen and big linemen who want to save money and train with heavy loads at their home. In a professional setting, I would recommend the Rogue butcher as an alternative for this purpose. This sled is hard to transport and store.
The XPO trainer 2 is the high-end solution for sleds. If you can afford and store it is the best sled to be used in a suburban area to just push it around the pavement or local street. The resistance increases the harder you push it which makes it great for interval training. It is not great for lineman or strongman training as the initial resistance is very easy to overcome which defeats the point for this type of training.
The Rogue Dogsled 1.2 has a lot of different attachments and will stay stable in use as it has multiple plastic feet. It is bigger than the TITAN weighted sled and can therefore take more plates without the risk of falling over. It will be harder to store in a car or truck, as the loading pin con not be folded down and the overall construction is bigger.
The Rogue Echo sled is the low-cost option of the dogsled 1.2. It will not have as many attachments available to you as the dogsled 1.2 and in return cost less. Compared to the power weighted sled with a leash and harness, the Rogue echo sled is bigger, more expensive, and harder to transport. In return, you can haul bigger loads and use it easier in both directions.
Conclusion for the TITAN Power weighted sled with leash and harness
The power weighted sled with a leash and harness is the small little companion you can take everywhere with you. It does not cost a lot and is compact. There is not really a lot you can do wrong here if you only want to do haul some extra weight somewhere outdoors. For the serious athlete that uses the sled in a gym environment or on a pitch the TITAN Pro Sled, Rogue Dogsled 1.2, or Rogue Echo Sled might be a better option, given the budget allows for it.
