Is a stand better or worse than a ceiling mount?
Heavy bag stands are not inherently better or worse than a ceiling mount, they simply offer practitioners a wider array of options. Ceiling mounts are clearly the more inexpensive choice. However, in order to make a ceiling mount work, you need to have a durable beam to attach it to, and ideally one that won't vibrate and shake the whole house. Often people are confined to garages or other non-invasive areas so as not to disturb others in the house. Heavy bag stands on the other hand can be placed anywhere and, when weighted properly, make minimal disturbance.

Can bag stands withstand serious training?
The stands and home gyms featured on BoxingDepot.com all come from very reputable brands that have pressure tested their products. They have been put through very serious training to make sure the design and material used in construction can tolerate maximum abuse. You can feel at ease when working with these units.

What are the benefits of a heavy bag stand?
Heavy bag stands are constructed out of tube steel and have been built to tolerate the high impact of heavy bag training. The good thing about stands such as this is their maneuverability. You can place them wherever you want to do your workouts, be it in a garage, a gym, or a spare room.
The bottom platforms can often be weighted so as to minimize any shifting or popping that might occur as the bag swings. One exciting feature of heavy bag stands is that they often come with multiple stations, allowing you to attach speed bags, double end bags, etc to the same stand and create a dynamic workout.

Do the stands available at BoxingDepot.com come with heavy bags?
Stands do not come with bags included unless explicitly stated otherwise. This helps the distributors minimize the cost of shipping and provides customers with only the things they need (as most customers already have a bag or want to buy one of their choosing).

You might also need...
When purchasing a heavy bag stand, there are a few other products to consider in order to complete your training experience. The first and perhaps most obvious are the appropriate heavy, speed, and double ended bags. There are also double end bag attachments that can turn a regular heavy bag stand into a double end bag stand with minimal additional cost.
You should also consider investing in good hand protection. Handwraps are inexpensive and key to protecting your skin against abrasion and cuts. Bag gloves are also designed to absorb and disperse the repeated impact placed on the joints from extensive training.
