See the XPO Trainer in Action
★★★★★Preston Pedersen, M.S.Ed.
The XPO Trainer has changed the way we can program our high school speed and agility sessions. Our athletes love the challenge and I love the versatility. It is a brilliant idea, and great product!Mustang Strength & Conditioning Coach

The XPO Sled scalability also can't be beat. My seven year old daughter and I are both able to use the same load. The days of changing a million plates are over. Did I mention this thing won't destroy your floor and won't bum out the neighbors with the sound of sled-grind?DPT Founder, MobilityWod & Owner, San Francisco CrossFit
The XPO Trainer is a beautiful machine. I am handicapped with spinal issues that affect the movement (or lack of) of my legs. I have trouble walking and walking is good for your back. The XPO Trainer is easy to use. You do not need to add weights to give more resistance. The harder you push, the harder it pushes back at you. So for people like me it is simple to use. I highly recommend the XPO Trainer for anyone who has trouble walking. It has really worked for me.Wellesley, MA
I’ve been using this sled for about a month and it’s an amazing conditioning tool that works the posterior chain while increasing baseline work capacity. It will humble you! The sled is SO easy to use without much instruction that I can get clients going on it right away – walking, running, sprinting, pulling. I found it to be a terrific workout for my time. The XPO Sled is my favorite workout toy! Do your homework and make the move! You won’t regret it.Weightlifting Champion, U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame
I bought this originally for my 16 year old son as a tool to improve his speed and acceleration in soccer. I have found it tremendously useful for my fitness as a 50 year old. It has not been stressful on my joints or back which have some wear and tear. I’m especially happy that I purchased this before the pandemic.Los Angeles, CA
Built In Resistance!
Smooth Rolling and eXPOnential Power
In all cases, there are no skidding plates of steel - just a nice, quiet, smooth rolling sled, with resistance that builds exponentially! The harder and faster you push, the more it resists.
Whether seeking maximum intensity during a workout, or pursuing the recovery of healthy walking and pushing movements, the XPO Trainer leverages the natural movement of walking, running, and pushing. For higher intensity efforts, the upper end of the resistance curve provides an added load component that was specifically designed to build explosive power in a full-body workout.
Weight plates not included. Weight plates are only needed to assist with traction on slicker surfaces. Adding weight does not change the resistance.
Assembled Weight: 60 lbs. (includes handles and weight plate post)
Base Weight: 47.5 lbs. (no handles or weight plate post)
Assembled Dimensions: 43" tall with handles installed, 43.5" long, 35" wide

Armored Fitness equipment accelerates at fitness results with the XPO Trainer 2 wheeled push sled. Used amongst personal trainers, at CrossFit gyms nationwide, and at local fitness centers, it’s the best, most versatile and fully portable weight sled with wheels available.
Frequently Asked Questions
In a word, no. Unlike older style sleds, the weight on the XPO Trainer is only used to provide friction for the front wheel to keep it from skidding as you push it. The eXPOnential resistance is produced by the resistance motor. Although the maximum weight capacity of the weight plate post is 100 pounds, depending on the surface and intensity of the exercise, you may find that 35 pounds will keep the front wheel from skidding. On a slick surface like polished concrete, you may need two 45 pound plates.
Basically yes! But with so many advantages! Unlike sleds with skids, the XPO Trainer will not damage your parking lot, sidewalks, or even your gym flooring. With this exercise sled, you won't have to change plates for each user, because the plates are only used for traction on the type of surface you're using it on. And bonus - it's super quiet too!
The XPO Trainer is designed to be safe for use on most flooring.
The secret to the XPO Trainer’s punishing workout lies in the resistance motor. You can actually push it slowly with one finger, BUT, with its eXPOnential resistance, as you begin to push it in your workout, you will feel the resistance building as you try to accelerate. As you push harder, the resistance continues to increase, meeting your force with increasing resistance to give you the intense workout you desire.
Yes. The handles slide off and it is easy to transport in the back of a truck or even a 4 door sedan. See our instructional video under the caption,"General Use: Pushing, Turning, Transporting", with demonstrations on pushing, turning, and transporting on the Videos page
We love this hanging storage option shown in the photo below by our friends at Omega CrossFit. While they have a custom solution, we have several customers who found unique off-the-shelf products for hanging their XPO Trainer. Check outour blog postwe wrote featuring these great options!
Ideally, it is best not to expose the XPO Trainer to rain nor use in wet or slippery conditions. If it is used in the rain, or does get wet, we recommend drying off the motor and chain area and wiping it down with a little oil or spray it with a lubricating film. There is no warranty replacement for rusted parts.
YES! The XPO Trainer is specifically designed with CrossFitters in mind. Get ready for the workout of your life.
There is not a direct comparison to the amount of weight on a traditional sled, especially given that the resistance on a traditional sled differs based on the surface on which you are pushing it. The XPO Trainer is a conditioning tool, best compared to an airdyne style exercise bike or a Concept 2 rowing machine. The harder you push, the more it is going to resist. It will match your power output with exponential resistance.
It is a common mistake to push or lift up on the handles while trying to push forward. This may cause the back tires to lift off the ground as the XPO Trainer begins to move. Apply force directly forward instead of lifting up to keep all tires on the ground. It will help if you place your hands lower down on the handles.
All of the resistance comes from the front wheel. On dry grass, the XPO Trainer gets okay traction. But if the grass is slick, especially wet green grass, it will be hard to get enough weight on the XPO Trainer to maintain the traction needed for resistance. If the front wheel slides, then it will be easier to push because there won't be much resistance.
While the original XPO Sled had an optional pulling attachment available, the new XPO Trainer does not. We found that the pulling attachment did not always function as we intended and was cumbersome to use. It has been discontinued.But, if you're still wanting to drag or pull the sled, many customers have found ways to do it. Read our pulling blog post here or watch our XPO Trainer sled pull and drag videos!
The weight limit for the XPO is 100 pounds on the weight plate post. When using the original XPO Sled's pulling attachment, do not exceed 200 pounds total weight combined.
When the XPO Trainer is pushed, the resistance motor generates heat. Under normal or even extreme use by a single athlete, the heat is effectively dissipated by the resistance motor and the duty cycle would not apply.However, when used by multiple athletes in relays where the XPO Trainer is pushed back and forth over short distances with no break between laps, that heat cannot be dissipated fast enough. In those situations, the duty cycle would apply and a break of 5 minutes is required for each 5 minutes of continuous work.
Inspect the chain for alignment and proper tension daily or weekly, depending on frequency of use. There are Alignment and Chain Tension sections in theXPO Trainer Owner's Manualfound on ourSupport page.For general maintenance, periodically spray the chain with the same type of chain lubrication that you would use on a bicycle. You may additionally put a little oil where the motor shaft comes out.
If you aren't comfortable doing your own maintenance on the chain, find a friend who works on their own bike, and they will be able to adjust the chain tension for you. Don't know anyone? Take it to a local bike mechanic or bike shop. They'll be able to easily make adjustments for you.
