What Our Community Says

Great tools for home use!

I love my Fitfighter steelhoses, so versatile and easy to store when not in use! The range of activities you can do with these is incredible and they are taking my fitness journey to a whole other level.

Better than I imagined!

As a caregiver, I am not able to get away as I could before and do group training at my gym. I LOVE that I can use these weighted hose sections for a variety of moves working strength, flexibility and range of motion!

These things rock

What a cool thing. Like a sand bag on steroids. Fun to get creative with these bomb proof units. Quality is top-notch. I would highly recommend for any one...seasoned workout gurus to those new to working out will love these.

Have Steelhose Questions? We Have Answers

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.

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.

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!

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!

The best way to get started is with a 15 lb hose and a 30-day subscription to our membership, giving you access to our online workout library. The library includes workouts for every age and fitness profile, allowing you to learn how this revolutionary new tool can prepare you for your everyday mission. We’ll also be Live Streaming with Sarah on occasion so stay tuned for those extra special experiences!
