I used to work out at a cardio kickboxing gym. It was a lot of fun to pound and kick the bags. What I didn't like was that the classes would often have us "partner up" with a stranger to do some weird pushups or whatever. Sorry, but I get pretty disgusting sweaty when I'm working out and I'm not real comfortable getting personal with somebody else when they're disgusting sweaty too. So I stopped going.I have been missing the release of pounding out my neuroses though. So I finally bit the bullet and got one of these bags. I live in a condo building and there's no way I could use it in my place without disturbing all the neighbors, so I put the bag down in the garage with our little storage area.The bag is tucked away when I'm not using it and then roll it out to whale on it for a while. Also got one of those rubber mats for under exercise bikes, which keeps the bag from moving around too much.I'm no pro, but I know the basics of punching and kicking so I don't hurt myself. (Although I did slip when doing a sidekick last weekend and really cranked my big toe on the bag; heartily recommend against doing that because it's still sore and puffy.) Overall the bag works for my needs. There is some movement when you're really going at it, but I think that's a benefit so I get some extra work moving around the bag trying to keep it on the mat.

I'm a single man and have this in my living room. It is really a great bag if you don't have neighbors close by and can't have a hanging bag. It can make some noise tho. I wouldn't recommend it for an apartment unless your neighbors are really cool. It can move around a bit, but that just adds to the workout. I like to beat it around the room. I wouldn't buy it on here though. I found it for 200 at academy sports after I bought it on here. I don't know if it was on sale, but check around locally first and try to save some cash.

Thanks to this bag i get an amazing workout. It took a while to fill up with water but when i got it filled up the bag was very resistant to punch. One thing i did notice is that once my punches became stronger the bag started to shift and make noise. I am on a apartment building so i don't get the freedom to exercise whenever. I guess i have to fill it up with sand if i don't want it to move.Amazing Combination1.Wavemaster XXL2.TKO Neoprene Handgloves3.Meister Ankle support wraps

Purchased for a workplace training room (one of my co-workers has had one in home for the past year and recommend the xxl for a work trainer). It arrives in two large boxes via trucking company. The base in one and the bag in the other. After reading other reviews, I filled our base with sand. I used a traffic cone and living in MN was able to get a few cheap "tube" sand bags that go in the back of trucks for winter weight/traction. Using a upside down traffic cone as a funnel it easily took four 60 pound bags of sand. Only drawback was the grade of sand produced dust, would maybe have done sandbox sand had I known. Anyways, after reading some reviewers talk about taking hours to fill, ours only took about 15 minutes (needed another ten for dust clean-up though)Once filled the top screws in easliy and it is ready to use. It rolls into place quite nicely and takes hits well. I am 6'3" 210 and have no trouble pucnhing the bag nor feel it is to short for my height. With 240 pounds in the base it doesn't move much, but will slide a little depending on the type of floor you have it placed on. We are using ours next to a battling rope and it is a nice combo to get the heart rate up, fatigue the upper body, and work on striking techniques.

I have this in my finished basement which has a plaster ceiling and no exposed beams or I would have got a hanging heavy bag. However, this works really well for what I need it for, working out with punch/kick drills. It is on a berber carpeted floor, and it does move around a little bit but not enough to be annoying. I grab it and pretend I am in a clinch and move it back into position as part of the workout. I had heard of people filling it with water after filling it with sand to add extra weight, but in the manual it gives a weight max that I don't want to exceed. I hear/read about people breaking the center support at the base and am wondering if that happens because they have the base filled with too much weight. For now I am going to leave it as is. It works great for what I need.I ended up filling it with 250 pounds of sand out in my garage with the door open, which was a good idea since a lot of dust was created when getting the sand into the base (I definitely would not even think about trying to fill this in your house.) After filling it, I had some trouble getting it through the door as it was awkward to move and the door was up a step (I suggest having at least one other person help you get it inside after it is filled.)

I am a Taekwondo enthusiast and have been taking it for about 1 1/2 years now. I am in the advanced belts and have wanted to start getting a little more serious with my training, as time allows (I have 3 small children, a dog, a husband and a full time job). I wanted a practice tool that I could keep in my garage and practice on anytime of the day or night.I received the Wavemaster in great condition. It was simple to put together. I filled it with water so that I could empty it more easily if I needed. I'm able to punch and kick it with as much force as I want with minimal movement. I've had it now for only one month but so far I feel that it was worth the price.
