Let’s face it; working out can be tough. Where to do it, when to do it and of course the time to do it. Plus, there’s all the workout equipment, the travel and the thought of being stuck inside the gym. There is a need for a practical way to workout that fits every lifestyle.
The EMPACK answers the call. It’s about Evolving Motion. Changing the way we think about fitness and the equipment you’ve been stuck with for years. It’s the FIRST AND ONLY backpack designed to serve as a weight training pack. The water bladders allow you to add weight and incorporate it into your daily routine, replacing the need for constant upgrades in your equipment. It’s military-grade durability allows it to withstand serious wear and tear as well as Mother Nature. The EMPACK is about freeing your fitness so you can workout on your terms.
The EMPACK is way more than just a fitness product. It’s a patent-pending, innovative way to do fitness- fun, out of the box, and evolved.
• Portability to go wherever you do.
Use it like a barbell.
The two main handles are durable and shaped for all hand sizes. This is the bread and butter of the pack: deadlifts, weighted squats, power cleans, squat cleans, thrusters, bent over rows, lunges, good mornings...The list goes on and on.
Use it like a dumbbell.
Grab the handles on the top and bottom of the pack for variations even better than dumbbell movements: Russian twists (shown), overhead sit-ups, strict press, bench press, and more.
Use it like a kettlebell.
Grab the main handle and a side handle to use exactly like a kettlebell. Think kettlebell snatches, clean and presses, Turkish Get-Ups, single arm thrusters…the possibilities are endless.
Use it for weighted planks, use it for weighted push-ups.
EmPack as a backpack has multiple features to make it the ultimate travel and lifestyle bag.
EmPack as a training pack takes this regular backpack into the unique, amazing product it is.• 6 handles to allow for endless training possibilities, the two most used handles made with sturdy tubing for optimal holding.
The light bulb for the EMPACK came to me when I was at the CrossFit Games watching my girlfriend compete. I was stuck in a hotel with absolutely no gym, and I was desperate to workout. I didn't just want to do typical bodyweight movements, like air squats and burpees. I wanted to lift! So, I took a suitcase, stuffed it with everything remotely heavy in the hotel room, and I lifted. It was tough, I was sore, and it made me realize that I needed to create something that not only would allow for amazing, effective workouts wherever you were, but could help my clients easily increase weight as they got stronger without spending a fortune on equipment!
My double sealed water bladders are extremely durable yet take no room in your EMPACK when not in use. Keep them filled and in your car ready to go. Keep them filled and in your own gym. Empty them, travel, and fill as needed! Hike up a mountain or sprint up the stairs with the added weight, but save your knees for when you come back down!
AS YOU GET STRONGER, YOU JUST ADD MORE WATER.
Each bladder holds 15 pounds of unstable weight, and the Pack holds 4 bladders total. This unstable weight that is shifting with you as you move makes the weight not only more challenging, but more effective.
MADE FOR EVERY LIFESTYLE
The EMPACK was created to make working out seamless no matter where you go. From business trips to mountain hikes, it provides the flexibility and durability to go where life takes you.
This weight training pack was born out of the need for everyday people to get an everyday workout without all the equipment. Fit, form and function was key in its design. It fits smoothly to all body styles. The form is modern and stylish, and the function is flexible to meet your training needs. Its military-grade durability allows it to stand up to the toughest workouts and the harshest weather. The EMPACK was also designed with the versatility to go on the road, be kept in your car, or used at home.
Through lots of trial and error, time and money the EMPACK will be U.S. made in the Mile High City of Denver, Colorado.

Risks and challenges
My product has come so far in it's journey: the design, the durability, and the functionality are all finally where it needs to be for this to be the best invention since the dumbbell.
With my prototypes, there are only a few adjustments on the straps that are needing to be made that my designers and I are working on now to make sure that all straps and zippers are secure and out of the way when in use! There will be two color options (charcoal grey and vibrant purple) for all my funders to pick from and I will be constantly updating on the progress of the changes, colors, and improvements of my Pack.
My manufacturer is ready for us to finalize this Pack and start cranking if our Kickstarter is fulfilled!
Our water bladders are being outsourced and this Kickstarter will make it possible to be sure we have what we need for every Pack to have it's own water bladder.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
