Have Steelhose® Questions? We Have Answers

What are Steelhoses?

Steelhoses are both free weights and resistance tools that you can lift, swing, drag, toss, and drop. 5 tools in 1, a Steelhose can do all the work of a dumbbell, kettlebell, sledge, sandbag, and medicine ball, and is safer than all of the above, durable, and easy to transport. Made in the USA from real firehose and recycled steel with brass grommets on the end, Steelhoses range from 5-50 LBs in weight (in 5 LB increments) and come in a Home (white) and Pro and Outdoors (Black reinforced) option. Different widths and length of hose are used depending on the weight and range from 2-6 inches in diameter, 18-36 inches in length.

What are the most recommended weights?

A well-rounded set of weights includes a pair of 5lb hoses, one 15lb hose and one 25lb hose, along with a monthly subscription to the online video library and live online classes. See the “Help Me Choose” link above for additional information on what might be the perfect trial option for you! 

How do Steelhoses feel and behave?

Hoses are made of tough coarse polyester fabric that’s easy to grip but not hard on your hands. In lengths of 18” to 36” packed with flowing steel shot, hoses feel like stiff bean bags – not rigid like dumbbells or kettle bells. Their length gives them great rotational inertia to build strength and agility, and importantly, they will not kink like sand would as you move with the weight and move your grip. 

How should Steelhoses be cleaned? 

Simple soap and water will clean ordinary dirt build-up. Hoses should be left in the sun or as much fresh air as possible for quick drying. You can also use basic fabric cleaning products if you’d like. Please note that Steelhoses will get a little dirty and roughed up over time as they are fabric and you’ll want to beat them up! 

Why are Steelhoses better than dumbbells or kettlebells?

Steelhoses have the same raw weightlifting characteristics as kettlebells and dumbbells, but the width is uniform including the grip area, and the weight is spread over longer lengths. This design increases instability and rotational inertia in each repetition, helping to build core strength, reduce joint strain, and develop grip strength (a key longevity marker.) Because Steelhoses are soft on the outside and semi-soft all around they’re safe on hardwood floors and won’t break toes when dropped! They are easy to load into a tote or trunk, carry around the neck or in hand, or in one of our personal carry bags! 

How fast will I receive my Steelhose?

Typical orders deliver in less than a week. And while you wait, you can prepare your body and mind with specially developed bodyweight exercises so you can step right into the flow when your new hose arrives. See your order confirmation email for these activation workouts! 

Orders & Memberships

Are the workouts included with the weights?

A 30-day subscription to the on-demand video library is included with your starter hose. But you don’t have to subscribe to the workouts if you don’t want to! You can see our Shop for our complete product line and tailor to your training needs.

Is there a class schedule for live classes online?

Yes we will post our Live Streaming experiences on the training platform. Contact Us directly with interest in high touch small group personal training and you will schedule offline with your FitFighter Pro! 

How often should I work out with Steelhoses?

This depends on your personal needs, but in general we advise 3-5 days per week of strength training, with conditioning worked into your program. 

Do you offer discounts to military or first responders?

Instead of discounts, FitFighter contributes $10 for every 50ft of firehose we use to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. The Foundation supports first responders, military veterans and their families all over the United States. FitFighter’s goal is to bring that same sense of service and community to every member across America.

Are hoses available outside the US?

Hoses are currently available only in the US.

What if I’m late for a class online?

FitFighter’s small group classes are special. Over time you’ll get to know each other, share stories and challenges, and care for each other’s well-being. Being prompt isn’t just good for you; it’s good for everyone.
