A:Unlike friction sleds or ‘prowlers,’ TANK™ is controlled by magnetic resistance — meaning you don’t need to change out the weight for each user. By flipping the resistance lever, you can change the intensity of your workout without adding or removing heavy weight plates. Additionally, TANK™ is an all-surface weight sled with wheels, meaning it will not tear up your carpet or flooring.
A:If this occurs, all you need to do is pump up the tire like you would your bicycle tire, and you will be back to your workout in no time. If this doesn’t solve the problem, contact us at Torque and we can help you troubleshoot the issue.
A:There are maintenance tips included in your TANK™ Assembly Guide. Please check these out, as the guide answers most questions and provides tips on how to make easy adjustments to keep your weight sled working smoothly.
A:Yes. TANK™ is coated with electrostatic paint, so you can use it outdoors, under all weather conditions, without fear of damaging the equipment. In addition, this is an all-surface fitness sled, meaning it was built to be used on a range of outdoor surfaces — from grass fields to turf tracks.
A:Weight sleds are particularly popular with football teams because they are centered on dynamic movement and have multi-use capabilities — ideal for a flexible team workout. TANK™ is perfect for engaging multiple muscle groups at once, so you can make sure your team is targeting the muscles that need the most attention for their game. Adaptable and engaging for the competitive athlete, TANK™ won’t allow you to coast and will push football players in a way that traditional weight sleds cannot. Learn more about why professional athletes choose TANK™ over other weight sleds.
A:When you train with TANK™ you experience an intense full body workout. This innovative weight sled resists an athlete’s effort to run faster and accelerate. Basically, the faster you push TANK™, the more energy you must exert. A sled workout provides a versatile cardio workout, grounded in intense strength training.
A:TANK™ is a versatile piece of equipment that can be used in a variety of ways. You can push or pull the weight sled, gripping a rubber-coated handle, to target specific muscle groups. Torque’s innovative magnetic resistance brake system prevents individuals from accelerating and forces them to work harder the faster they run. With four adjustable levels of resistance, you can move the lever to achieve the exact resistance you’re looking for in your workout. To switch up your training session, attach battle ropes to the tow hooks. TANK™ can be used on any terrain or surface.
A:Yes. TANK™ is ideal for therapy or rehab purposes. This push pull sled promotes functional exercise, and its resistance capabilities allow users to build up their strength slowly over time, which prevents further injury. The resistance lever lets you target the exact level of resistance you’re after, so you can manage and control every aspect of your workout. The magnetic braking system also means that injured individuals can change the resistance level without lifting heavy weight plates on and off TANK™. Torque’s weight sled is easy-to-use and safe — perfect for aging adults or individuals going through physical rehabilitation or therapy.
A:TANK™ resistance is proportional to the speed — meaning that the faster you push the TANK™, the more resistance there is at any level. The chart below gives some approximate lb. weight equivalent values based on the speed you are pushing a TANK and the Level of Resistance you have chosen (Neutral, 1, 2, 3).
A:While we agree it is fun to be pushed around on a sled, riding on TANK™ is currently not suggested. If a part of your body slips under TANK™ while it is moving, it is going to hurt.
I was impressed with the heavy construction of the M4 Tank. It’s very versatile.
Got my Tank M1 w/ dumbbell holders. Easy assembly (thanks for the wrenches though needed my own for the db holders). Paper work and directions were well done. Only issue I had was with the front tire inflation adapter. Could not get air through it though it may have been me. Managed to find a filling station hose that allowed me to reach and inflate the front tire without removing the sled hood.
So far as performance, 4 workouts in I'm really impressed w/ the sled though, so far, I've only done basic pulling and pushing. Seems tremendously well made and durable with excellent attention to detail (handles, tires, powder coat, et al.) and the actual working mechanism appears to work smoothly and reliably while giving all of the resistance range I (and my clients) will need.
All said I'm very happy, after plenty of research, that I pulled the trigger and purchased the Tank. Looking forward to years of great workouts ahead.
Love it want more of it! When is next sale for kettlebells to make my next pood?
I absolutely love this machine for my gym/guest room. The slim profile is perfect for my needs. What they don't advertise is that you can use the long handles and attach to the top and bottom pullys to get a mid grip. I've used that for kneeling rows and for pressing. Its not as functional as a machine with adjustable pullys, but it does more than they show. Also the shipping was VERY fast. I hired someone from Taskrabbit and he had it installed within 2 hours. Very happy with my purchase!
Great addition, work great, it allows easier to transport.
Bought for my own athletic progression but also for my elderly mother to use. Knees over toes on steroids!
Great customer service, needed to change the delivery address and Torque Fitness had no issues at all changing it for me. Delivered as promised.
Makes a big difference moving the MX Tank around in the garage.
Easily installed, no problems at all. Works as advertised.
Just as all products from Torque Fitness, this product is of high quality.
I love love the tank. Excellent build quality and in the few weeks I’ve had it it’s become one of the central parts of my home gym. If it’s in your budget I can’t recommend this enough
Took about 2 hours to assemble/mount. Instructions & assembly went smooth. Needed to pick up allen wrenches & socket (no big deal). Very solid & well made unit. Works great as promised. Extremely happy camper. Thanks.
its on my garage gym wall
I love the fact that this sled does not require me to carry and load heavy weights on it. There is literally no prep work required -- just push or pull and go! Since it requires no set up, I use it more often! It's just that easy!
It’s a solid piece of equipment. Changing my workout goals to incorporate the tank into full body workouts. There are so many applications to incorporating the tank, sprints, pulls, pushing it 1/2mile, applying the harness and towing. Total game changer.
I absolutely love this machine. Wanted something high quality that I could use at home. Was at my house in 2 days. Took my wife and I about 5-6 hours to open the box, move to the area we wanted to assemble, and put together. Instructions were very clear. Now I feel like I have a gym in my basement. We love how it folds up. It allows us more usable space, but also keeps it safe from kids when it's closed up. Absolutely love it! Would highly recommend.
Wonderful product. I only wish I had bought one of these years ago. Great way to strengthen and condition the lower body as well as build knee stability.
