A Fitness Sled gives you the ability to leverage your own momentum to get as much out of your workout as you put into it.

Fitness sleds are no longer just for athletes, coaches, and the pros. People of all fitness levels can use can XPO Trainer to transform their results. Here's a look at how fitness sleds work.

A Fitness Sled Works as Hard as You Do 

Fitness Sled - Armored FitnessUnlike traditional gym equipment, the XPO Trainer leverages the natural movement of walking, running, and pushing.

It's possible to get in an incredible workout without the use of weights or additional equipment. The more momentum you use with a fitness sled, the more challenging your exercise and results. 

Challenge Yourself to a Full Body Workout

Your home gym doesn't need to be overwhelmed with multiple pieces of equipment. Simplify your workout with a single fitness sled that targets various muscle groups. Here are some of the areas a push sled impacts:

  • Hip flexors
  • Quadriceps
  • Shoulders
  • Chest
  • Abdominal
  • Triceps
  • Glutes
  • Calves 

Keep Your Workout Convenient and Portable

A fitness sled is comprehensive and eliminates the need for heavy equipment. An XPO Trainer is portable and makes working out accessible no matter where you go. Take it with you on vacation, the park, or a friend's to keep your workout feeling fresh. 

Enjoy a Quiet Workout

If you've used an old-school fitness sled, you'll know they are usually noisy and damage your flooring. The XPO Trainer uses wheels for easy portability and a quiet workout.

Gym owners can free up valuable space in their gym without risking damage to their floors in the process. Whether it's early in the morning or the midnight hours, a fitness sled quietly slides down your driveway or across your basement floor without waking up loved ones or neighbors. 

Improve Your Performance & Speed

Fitness sleds have long been a go-to for athletes and coaches looking to transform their results. Our XPO Trainers help increase speed and stamina. Working out with a fitness sled can improve sprinting speed and create an anabolic environment to help you gain muscle at the same time. 

Suitable for All Fitness Levels

Fitness levels may vary, but athletes, gym owners, personal trainers, and anyone new to the gym can use our fitness sled. Some of our clients also include people with various disabilities or who are recovering from injuries. Use a fitness sled at your own pace and build up the strength you need to take your workout to new levels.

Intensify Your Calorie Burn

The harder you work your fitness sled, the greater your calorie burn. That may sound like the results from any other workout, but an XPO Trainer can burn hundreds of calories in minutes with the right momentum.

Fitness Sled Reviews

"I learned I had a degenerative meniscus tear recently. Rebab in the pool is improving my knee situation, but at the same time, I'm using the XPO Trainer to get a great cardio workout. It's easy on the knee and helps me burn more calories than swimming. I'm happy to own it.

"Customer service is great. I had overinflated a tire, and they sent out a new one for cheap very quickly. The XPO doesn't take much space, so I can store it in my closet and use it in the parking lot in an urban area. Fits my situation and needs very well." - Adam V.

"I was skeptical when my husband purchased this, but the sled is fantastic for just about any age and ability. The harder you work, the harder it works for you. Worth the investment." - Lisa Marie Otto
