I'm really happy with my new EM Pack! It has been great for strength training at home and I expect to get a lot of use out of it this winter. It is easy to fill and change out the water reservoirs to change the weight. I'm a runner so having the ability to perform heavy resistance training for the lower extremities at home is great. So far I've just done basic exercises like squats, lunges, split squats, calf raises, and Romanian deadlifts.
Love the em pack! It’s so useful to get up and just do a home style workout that’s weighted without having to go to the gym and fighting a crowd when you’re in a hurry.
This is the answer to a mom of 3 who wants to fit her workouts in where ever the military life takes her! Thank you!
The EmPack is truly my favorite piece of at home fitness equipment. I’m always looking for any excuse to take my workout outdoors! Prior to the EmPack, my outdoor workouts consisted of running and/or bodyweight exercises. The EmPack allows me to get a great strength training workout in anywhere I want, with one piece of equipment! As a Personal Trainer, Nutrition Coach and busy mom, my workouts are scheduled around clients, my daughters school schedule, sporting events or requests to play outside. I bring the EmPack with me and I’m able to get a workout in at a park between clients, before I pick my daughter up from morning Kindergarten, during her practices or while I’m watching her play outside. The versatility of the pack offers countless variations for a full body workout and the unstable weight of the water adds an extra challenge. The EmPack has been the most invaluable addition to my fitness routine!
I absolutely love my EmPack! It is very durable & will probably last forever. I used it as my carry-on for a business trip & I fit so much stuff in it. I love that you can take off the straps. It’s very easy to use. It replaces my free weights, my kettlebells, and my squat bar. It’s a great workout because you use more muscles to stabilize it. You don’t even need to go to a gym because with the EmPack, the world is your gym.
Customize your weight and your workout
Filled with water: 13-14 pounds
Filled with sand: 21 pounds
Unfilled, 21" long and 1/2" thick, 5 ounces
How much weight does each reservoir add?
15 pounds when filled with water and up to 20 filled with sand. Remember that water is an unstable weight and will automatically feel heavier than your general static weight that you use in the gym. It adds a new element of stability training and proprioception (teaching your body to adapt to new surroundings) that will challenge your body in a whole new way.
How many reservoirs does a pack hold?
OG Empack - 4 (comes with 2)
Wander - 2
Nomad - 1 + a hydration pack
You can always buy extra reservoirs!
Is there a workout guide that comes with my pack?
We want you to use this baby! With every purchase we send a WORKOUT PDF GUIDE that you can use right away. We also have weekly workouts sent on our newsletter. Looking for more? We offer a 6 Week Get Strong Program on the website that was written specifically for the EmPack. It is great for traveling, in-home workouts and making the world your gym.
How durable are the packs?
The Empack uses the highest quality military grade 1000D, water-resistant Cordura with double backed bindings, straps, and handles to make this pack long lasting and fit for all your needs.
How do you transition the EmPack from a backpack to a training pack?
The transition is simple: take off the shoulder straps (unless using as a weighted vest) and tighten the front area by pulling the straps snug. Hold onto the pack's handles and use it like dumbbells or a kettlebell.
What are the best ways to use my Empack?
The packs are super versatile! Use it for work or travel and easily transition it to a weightlifting tool for strength training. The smallest pack (the Nomad) is also a great sized pack for trail running, hiking, and mountain biking.
