WHICH IS THE RIGHT WEIGHT RANGE FOR YOU?
Think about your body structure: even if you think that up to 4 kg (8.9 lbs) is not much, when you put this kind of weight in motion with dynamic movements (or in a slow and controlled manner), the FITSWORD® will feel heavy.
You can make a test at home with a dumbbell. Wield it as a sword and mimic cuts and thrusts at different angles, with the arms extended. Make some repetitions to feel the muscles work.
If you can’t wield the weight selected with good posture, then try with less weight.
This process, should give you an idea of the right weight range for you.
Don't forget that training with the right weight allows you:

I'M NOT VERY STRONG
Whether you have a small body structure or you are not so strong, you should consider buying the WHITE FITSWORD (1.5 kg - 3,3 lbs), as it is already heavy enough for your training.
It's heavy as the short sword used by gladiators in combat. It's also perfect to learn freestyle and dexterity moves.
If you want a tool that let you increase the weight in a progressive way, you can also order the FITSWORD MODULAR (1,2 to 2,7 kg - 2,7 to 6 lbs), that has a weight range able to satisfy the need of 70% of the users.
If you are FIT and you are on a budget, you can order the BLACK FITSWORD (2,5 kg - 5,5 lbs). We experimented with many people that 2,5 kg are a good training weight.
Obviously, if you want a more versatile tool, we suggest you the FITSWORD MODULAR (1,2 to 2,7 kg - 2,7 to 6 lbs) as the chance to reduce or increase the weight is more user friendly when you try dexterity and freestyle moves, or learning combat techniques.
I'M VERY FIT
If you want to train with maximum intensity, the FITSWORD® Modular Pro (1,5 to 4 kg - 3,3 to 8.9 lbs), is the right choice for you.

This is the perfect tool also for the personal trainer, to be used with the beginner and with the advanced athlete (given the wider weight range).

DON'T WORRY. IT'S NOT ALL ABOUT THE WEIGHT
The FITSWORD is a multi purpose training tool. It's strength, cardio and mobility training, all together in the same session.
Strength it's not all about weight.
Training with limited weight doesn’t mean that the training is not effective to increase the strength.
Thanks to the momentum created with the circular motion, you increase the strength without placing unnecessary strain on joints and connective tissues. Instead you strengthen the joints through traction and shock absorption of repeated movements. This is physics applied to human mechanic: swinging the FITSWORD® twice as fast produces four times the torque and momentum, hence the superior strength conditioning.
You can get your heart rate up and get cardio.
Cardio is not just running. Cardio is getting your heart rate up and keep it there, and that's what you do with a FITSWORD session. Coupling lower body exercises with arms exercises is a great way to elevate heart rate, challenge the core muscles and strengthen the entire body.
While one muscle group is recovering, another is fresh for the next set of reps and you're constantly moving from one exercise to the next.
Mobility bundled with strength and cardio.
While most classic gym exercises work the shoulder through few degrees of its entire range of motion, the FITSWORD® allow the shoulder to be trained through nearly its entire range of motion, producing a stimulus that has such positive effects impossible to get with more conventional trainings.
Muscles, tendons and ligaments get stretched improving joints flexibility and range of motion, while you improve your overall strength and reduce the risk of injuries thanks to the improved stability, mobility and strength.
The FITSWORD® Modular Pro comes with 12 Weight Plates:
- 6 Metal Plates: cnc machined from solid block of Stainless Steel, with a weight of 0.5 kg (1,1 lb) each.
- 6 Black Plates: cnc machined from solid block of Delrin, with a weight of 100 grams (0,2 lb) each.
Combine the Metal and Black Plates in 7 different ways to get the weight that you better handle for your task, from 1,5 to 4 kg (3,3 to 8,9 lbs).
In function of your skills, your strength and kind of training that you want to do (fitness, cardio, dexterity, rehab, strength, combat), you setup your FITSWORD®, with the weight that you need.
Weight Fine Tuning: the wide number and choice of weight plates, allows the most progressive load increase.
If you want to train with maximum intensity, this FITSWORD® model is the right choice for you.
The FITSWORD® Modular offers:
- Boffer functionality (with the lightest setup of 1,2 kg - 2,7 lbs)
- Strength and Endurance training: with a weight range that reaches 2.7 kg - 6 lbs.
When you put this kind of weight in motion with dynamic movements, the FITSWORD will feel heavy after few repetitions for the average user.
This FITSWORD comes with 2 Black Plates (CNC Machined in Delrin), 2 Metal Plates and 1 Inner Metal Bar (CNC Machined from solid block of Stainless Steel).
Combine the Metal and Black Plates in 4 different ways to get the weight that you better handle for your task, from 1,2 to 2,7 kg (2,7 to 6 lbs).
