You Can Now Grab a Freestanding Fila Punching Bag from Coles for Less Than $60


If you’ve always wanted to try your hand at boxing à la Rocky, now is your chance. Although, in this case, you won’t walk away with any battle scars.

In Coles’ latest Best Buys catalogue, you can grab a Fila Free Standing Punching Bag for just $59.99 and practice all of your Rocky moves.

Boxing is a great aerobic exercise and according to Harvard Health Publishing, it gets your heart pumping and can help lower the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke and diabetes.

Boxing can also strengthen your bones and muscles, lift your mood and boost your endurance. It’s also great for hand-eye coordination and can improve your balance.

“There are studies that show trying to hit a target with your hands improves eye-hand coordination and possibly makes you feel more alert and attentive,” physical therapist Linda Arslanian, director of rehabilitation services at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital, told Harvard Health Publishing.

While shadow boxing gives you the same benefits, connecting your hand to a boxing bag brings its own sense of satisfaction. If you can’t sacrifice the space to hang a bag in your home, the Fila freestanding bag is the next best thing. Plus, it’s great for renters since hooks aren’t required.

Made from PU leather, the base is fillable with water or sand to keep the device sturdy. The addition of steel spring allows you to engage in fast action punching so you can really get in a flow with it.

Coles is also selling a matching set of boxing gloves from Fila too. The fire red Fila Challengers Boxing Gloves are $19.99 and have been created for lasting durability and performance as well as protection.

These items are on sale until Thursday, September 3 and are only available in selected Coles Supermarkets.
