Brilliant solution for heavy bag training at home
My first attempt to hang a 15” aqua bag in an upstairs spare bedroom was a complete failure. Although it was hung from a solid bracket, secured by heavy coach screws straight into a ceiling joist, the terrible noise and vibrations it sent through the house made the setup completely unusable. Especially with our new born who was terrified by the sound. I then tried a bag spring, Same situation, swinging light fitting, booming throughout the house and a genuine concern for the ceiling above. It was a lost cause , and the aqua bag was resigned to the garage for storage.
8 months later I stumble across promountns ceiling mounts and took a gamble to see if this solution would allow me to train at home again. Short answer : yes, 100%.
I was a little daunted by the price at first compared to other options out there but once it arrived it was to see why it demands a higher price tag.
It’s commercial grade. Very well constructed and finished from heavy gauge steel, fully serviceable with replaceable moving parts and different gas shock weight options available separately. Will no doubt last a lifetime.
In use the gas shock is slightly compressed by the hanging bag weight. This floating action takes a strike to the bag from any direction, even taking up slack when the bag is lifted with uppercuts. In use the mount works similar to a cars suspension. The gas shock moves blindly fast, constantly adjusting to any impact you can throw it rather than transferring that energy into the bones of your house.
The result is a near silent bag workout , of course there is some sound from gloves hitting the bag but all booming and ceiling movement are gone.
My daughter can now happily enjoy her afternoon nap in the next room instead of fearing the house is falling down.
