About

Everybody has a different reason to stay fit - find your reason!

Do you want a  complete and effective workout anywhere and anytime? Then watch out! This is the perfect product for you - the PAKAMA sports bag.

We searched all over the world for great training equipment. What we found was expensive and inadequate - costing around 500 Euros for old vintage looking and average quality equipment.

We tried and trained with it again and again. Finally, we explored what was missing. As a result developed and improved our favorite equipment, not only in quality and function but also in style. Only the best items made the selection for our bag – at a phenomenal price tag!

10 pieces of sports equipment packed up in one awesome lifestyle backpack combined with the smart PAKAMA app. You get over 500 exercises to train in strength, endurance, mobility and stability completely independently.

Your gym in your bag - 10 pieces of sports equipment hidden in your PAKAMA sports bag.

In every PAKAMA sports bag you'll find:

  • 3 PAKAMA mini bands 
  • 2 PAKAMA foot straps and 2 PAKAMA handles
  • 2 PAKAMA slides
  • 1 PAKAMA bar
  • 1 PAKAMA jumping rope
  • 1 PAKAMA sling 
  • 1 PAKAMA door anchor 
  • 1 PAKAMA ball 
  • 1 PAKAMA mat

Check some workout examples:

The PAKAMA sports bag is a unique lifestyle bag. Even when the complete set of equipment is packed, there is still enough space for personal items like your notebook, training shoes or your travel camera.

The inside of the bag offers hidden compartments for every piece of equipment, so it can easily be found, used and stored

We finished the roll top opening with a waterproof double zipper, so you can open the bag completely. This allows fast and easy access from the side while the top is closed. You can easily grab your notebook, wallet, phone, or of course a piece of the equipment. 

The PAKAMA sports bag is also made for the outdoors: the inside and outside of the bag is robust, easily cleaned and water resistant.

There are 2 outside pockets, one on the front of the bag for small items like wallet or keys and one underneath, designed with an extra zipper, so you can enlarge if you want to take your water bottle with you.

The PAKAMA carabiner keychain clip can be used to attach extra equipment like shoes or helmets to the backpack.

The PAKAMA backpack provides the perfect and comfortable fit for everybody, all straps are adjustable.

The PAKAMA app provides personalized workout plans according to your goals. It also offers you training and workout ideas on the go. 

You will always find inspiring and creative workout ideas in the PAKAMA community on our social media platforms - PAKAMAathletics

App Facts:

  • You will get the app with all features the first month for free (in the XXL package even 2 months) 
  • If you love the app, you have the possibility to extend your access 3 months for 30€
  • You can download your workout plans so these are always and everywhere available 
  • Development of workout plans and exercises together with a sports scientist
  • More than 500 different exercises are possible with the equipment 
  • The workout plans are personalized for your needs 
  • All exercises are described by videos

The love and passion for sports and fitness brought the 3 PAKAMA founders Maja, Sebastian, and Patrick together. The idea for the PAKAMA sports bag came to life because of their own personal needs to combine a busy everyday life with an active and fitness oriented lifestyle. They all have their own reasons for staying fit. 

One year ago the journey of the three began with research and improvement of different prototypes. For this reason, they traveled around the world to find the best manufacturers.

Maja Bach lives for CrossFit, strength and endurance training. To balance sports, family, and job in her everyday life, the idea for the PAKAMA bag was born. Maja studied architecture and has a high affinity for design and many years of experiences in brand building, product design, and illustration. She is the creative head behind the brand. Maja is 43 with two boys (11 and 13 years old) who are just as crazy about sports as Maja and her husband.

Sebastian Steudtner is one of the most successful big wave surfers in the world and is always on the go in search of the perfect wave. His passion is one of the most dangerous sports in the world, which requires absolute physical and mental fitness. That's why he demands everything from his sports equipment - mobility, functionality, and effectiveness. And with this in mind, he joined the team. He has won the Global Big Wave Award for the biggest waves in the world twice. Today, the 33-year-old lives in Nazaré, Portugal, an absolute surfer's hot spot.

Patrick Kessel completed his masters in business after studying sports management. The 28-year-old is the youngest PAKAMA team member but already has a lot of experiences in building up successful startups. Patrick is also a referee in the German professional football league (Bundesliga) and the managing director of PAKAMA athletics. Fitness and sport is not only a passion for him but also a must for his job as a professional referee.

With each PAKAMA sports bag you buy, we donate 3.50 EUR to the foundation WEMAKEWAVES (WIRMACHENWELLE). 

WEMAKEWAVES is a non-profit organization founded by Sebastian Steudtner. It supports kids in becoming active, healthy and happy adults, after troubled or hurtful childhood experiences.

We are so grateful and amazed by all of your feedback for our PAKAMA sports bag. Our vision is to build up a community of people who love and live for sports, fitness and health - all of you joining, supporting and following the PAKAMA journey, thank you so much! We are PAKAMA.

„Jeder hat einen Grund, fit zu sein. Finde Deinen.“

Möchtest Du überall, jederzeit ganzheitlich und effektiv trainieren? Dann haben wir das perfekte Produkt für Dich - den PAKAMA Sports Bag.

Wir haben weltweit nach coolen Trainingsgeräten gesucht. Was wir fanden, war teuer und nach unseren Maßstäben nicht befriedigend -  500 Euro für Trainingsgeräte, die weder unserem Qualitäts- noch unserem Styleanspruch genügten, war für uns keine Option.

Schließlich haben wir getestet und trainiert - immer wieder - bis wir schließlich ein Produkt entwickelt haben, welches unseren Ansprüchen in punkto Qualität, Funktionalität und Style entsprach. Diese Auswahl an erstklassigen Produkten hat es in unseren Rucksack geschafft. Der Gesampreis, den wir anbieten können, ist im Vergleich zu den Einzelpreisen, des herkömmlichen Equipments, phänomenal.

Der PAKAMA Sports Bag umfasst 10 Trainingsgeräte, verpackt in einen Lifestyle Rucksack. In Kombination mit der smarten PAKAMA App, erhältst Du mehr als 500 Fitnessübungen, um Kraft, Ausdauer, Mobilität und Stabilität zu trainieren.

Your gym in your bag - 10 Trainingsgeräte gepackt in Deinen PAKAMA Sports Bag.

In jedem PAKAMA Sports Bag findest Du:

  •  3 PAKAMA Resistance Bänder 
  •  3 PAKAMA Mini Bänder
  •  2 PAKAMA Fußschlaufen and 2 PAKAMA Griffe 
  •  2 PAKAMA Slides 
  •  1 PAKAMA Bar (Langhantel)
  •  1 PAKAMA Springseil
  •  1 PAKAMA Sling 
  •  1 PAKAMA Türaufhängung
  •  1 PAKAMA Faszienball 
  •  1 PAKAMA Matte

Schau Dir eine Auswahl an Übungen an:

Der PAKAMA Sports Bag ist ein einzigartiger Lifestyle Rucksack. Auch wenn die komplette Trainingsausrüstung im Bag eingepackt ist, ist immer noch genügend Platz für persönliche Dinge wie zum Beispiel Dein Notebook, Trainingsschuhe oder Deine Kameraausrüstung.

Das Innere des Rucksacks hat für jedes der Trainingsgeräte seinen eigenen Platz, so dass es leicht gefunden, genutzt und wieder gepackt werden kann.

Die Rolltop Öffnung wurde mit einem wasserdichten Doppelreißverschluss ergänzt. So kannst Du den Rucksack problemlos komplett öffnen. Notebook, Geldbeutel, Telefon oder natürlich ein Teil der Ausrüstung können so unkompliziert seitlich herausgenommen werden.

Der PAKAMA Sports Bag ist ebenso für das Outdoor Training konzipiert, so sind die Außen- und Innenseiten des Rucksacks robust, leicht zu reinigen und wasserabweisend.

Es gibt zwei Außentaschen, eine auf der Vorderseite für Geldbörse oder  Schlüssel (natürlich mit wasserfestem Reißverschluss) und eine weitere auf der Seite. Diese kann man mit einem Reißverschluss zum Flaschenfach vergrößern.

An dem seitlichen Karabiner kannst Du zusätzlich Dinge wie Schuhe oder einen Helm am Rucksack befestigen.

Der PAKAMA Sports Bag bietet eine perfekte und bequeme Passform für jedermann, da die Brust- Hüftgurte variabel einstellbar sind.

Die PAKAMA App bietet personalisierte Trainingspläne -  angepasst an Deine Ziele. Außerdem findest Du dort eine große Auswahl an kompletten Workouts, Übungen, Tipps und Trainingsideen für unterwegs.

Auf unseren Social-Media-Plattformen PAKAMAathletics findest Du als Teil der PAKAMA Community immer motivierende und kreative Trainingsideen.

App Facts:

  • Du bekommst das App mit allen Features den ersten Monat kostenfrei geschenkt (im XXL Paket sogar 2 Monate)
  • Findest Du das App super, hast Du die Möglichkeit Deinen Zugang für 3 Monate für 30€
  • Du kannst die Trainingspläne runterladen, sodass sie immer und überall verfügbar sind
  • Alle Trainingspläne und Übungen wurden gemeinsam mit einem Sportwissenschaftler entwickelt

  • Die Trainingspläne sind auf Deine Bedürfnisse personalisiert
  • Alle Übungen werden durch Videos beschrieben
 

Vor einem Jahr begann die Reise der drei mit der Entwicklung und Verbesserung verschiedener Prototypen. Dafür reisten sie um die Welt, um die besten Produzenten zu finden.

Maja Bach brennt für Crossfit, Kraft- und Ausdauertraining. Um ihren Sport, Familie und Job optimal im Alltag vereinbaren zu können, entstand die Idee für den PAKAMA Bag. Die studierte Architektin hat eine hohe Affinität für Design. Emotionales Brandbuilding ist eine ihrer Stärken. In der Vergangenheit hat sie u.a. im Produktmanagement eines großen Deutschen Verlags gearbeitet und ist Illustratorin für Kinderbücher. Maja ist die kreative Konzeptioniererin im Team. Die 43-Jährige ist Mutter von zwei Jungs (11 und 13 Jahre alt), die genauso sportvernarrt sind, wie Maja und ihr Mann.

Sebastian Steudtner ist einer der erfolgreichsten Big-Wave Surfer der Welt. Schon zwei Mal hat er den Global Big Wave Award für die größten Wellen der Welt gewonnen.  Sebastian reist rund um die Welt, immer auf der Suche nach den größten Wellen. Eine gefährliche Leidenschaft, die absolute körperliche und mentale Fitness voraussetzt. Daher verlangt er seinem Sport-Equipment alles ab: Mobilität, Funktionalität und Effektivität. Und genau mit diesem Anspruch ist er zum Team hinzugestoßen. Heute ist er einer der besten Surfer der Welt. Schon zwei Mal hat er den Global Big Wave Award für die größten Wellen der Welt gewonnen.

Patrick Kessel hat nach seinem Sportmanagement-Studium einen Master in Entrepreneurship und Business absolviert. Der 28-Jährige ist das jüngste Teammitglied und hat vor PAKAMA bereits als Gründer an mehreren Start-ups mitgearbeitet. Patrick ist Schiedsrichter im Profi-Fußball, der unternehmerische Kopf des Gründertrios und Geschäftsführer von PAKAMA. Der Kraft- und Fitnesssport ist für ihn nicht nur eine Leidenschaft, sondern auch ein Muss für seinen Schiedsrichterjob.

Mit jedem PAKAMA Sports Bag den Du kaufst, spenden wir 3,50 EUR an die Organisation WIRMACHENWELLE.

                                                                                                                           

WIR MACHEN WELLE ist ein gemeinnütziger Verein, der von Sebastian Steudtner gegründet wurde. Der Verein unterstützt Kinder, welche aus schwierigen familiären Verhältnissen kommen, ein gesunder, pflichtbewusster und glücklicher Erwachsener zu werden. 

Wir sind so überwältigt und dankbar über Eure Reaktionen und Unterstützung. Unsere Vision ist eine Community aufzubauen, die für Sport, Fitness und Gesundheit steht - Ihr alle könnt die PAKAMA Reise begleiten, unterstützen und verfolgen. Wir sind PAKAMA.

Risks and challenges

We have spent lots of time in developing this product, finding competent people who can manufacture it and have planned out what types of resources and man hours we are going to need to fulfill all the pledges we receive. We are confident in our team's competence and abilities to do this right, however as with any project there are always bumps and unforeseen obstacles that could arise along the way. Our plan to deal with any potential obstacles is to be completely transparent to our backers, after all, without you guys we would be nothing. We will work through the night to get your rewards to you, and we will keep you informed all along the way. Thank you so much for your support!

Cannot mark as gift, this is illegal, so we will not be able to do this.

Our prices do not include VAT, GST or other country taxes.

As many of you know, our terms of sale for international orders are FOB Destination. This means that you pay all freight and duties or taxes. As we are shipping these products all over the world, it is impossible for us to build in the various duties, VAT and GST tax for each location through Kickstarter.

We found this handy tool, that can assist you in calculating duties. Remember to convert the U.S. dollars to your local currency:
