What are the benefits of using a weighted vest?

The purpose of our weight vest goes well beyond just adding weight. It simulates a heavier body mass, pushing your muscles to work harder and thereby increasing strength, endurance, and overall performance. This added resistance forces your body to adapt, helping you achieve those fitness milestones faster. Whether you’re performing squats, pull-ups, or even running, incorporating this weight vest into your routine can truly revolutionise your training, giving you the edge you need to outperform and outlast.

A weighted vest is a powerful tool that can significantly boost the intensity and efficacy of your workouts, and at NC Fitness, you are bound only to find vests of the highest quality. Whether you’re running, lifting, or performing bodyweight exercises, these vests can help:

  • Increase strength and endurance
  • Improve cardiovascular health
  • Enhance bone density
  • Boost weight loss efforts
  • Improve balance and stability 


How to wear a weight vest

Weight vests are weighted vests worn over the torso that have various levels of resistance, and can be weighted with plates to suit your fitness level and needs.

There are many benefits of wearing weight vests in strength training and cardio activities. You can increase your strength and endurance and bring variation to your gym workout. There is also added bonus of cardiovascular health and bone strength.

Much like reliable resistance bands, weight vests can hold the power to take your favourite bodyweight exercises to new levels. Just by wearing one, you’ll be adding an additional weight load to your workout which puts more stress on your overall body and forces your muscle groups to work harder with the added weight to move around.

What Exercises can be done with Weight Vests?

Weight Vests can be used for specific bodyweight training such as plyometric work or sprinting. You can also challenge yourself and up the resistance on a variety of standard bodyweight exercises. Boost your abilities with squats, lunges, pull-ups and push-ups.

Ordered 11am Thursday and recieved 20 slam balls for my gym the following day at 4pm. Unbelievable service and delivery time. Would highly recommend 👌

Within an hour of purchase I had a phone call and e mail with a tracking number to follow.

Sarah Huan 21/11/23

NC has some of the best dumbbells I have ever used! Awesome quality and they feel great in my hands.

James Devlin 01/07/23

Bought a sled, turf and belt squat from NC Fitness. Service was great and build quality is good. The belt squat and sled were easy to assemble and the staff helped with loading it all into my vehicle. I will be buying more products from here in the future for sure 👍

Scott Comber 21/09/22

Bought some rubber mats and plates, prices were competitive and its nice to be able to rock up and just load into the back of your car.

Friendly staff.

These are good quality bumper plates for the price and cope well for CrossFit style WODs where weights are constantly dropped.
NC Fitness also have excellent customer service nothing is too hard for them.

Best investment in a long time I have a lot of knots in my shoulders and I suffer from sciatic pain as well this has helped me so much. My friends have used mine and have ended up purchasing the ball as well. Best investment in a long time.

Gabe Athouse 11/12/21

Great quality stuff ordered skipping rope and a box jump and came quicker then expected. They also sent me some extra goodies which I was very happy with

Brett Nicholas 12/11/21

I've made 3 different purchases from NC Fitness, collecting one order in person, while shipping the other two orders. The quality of their products is fantastic, while their pricing is competitive. I have plenty of rogue fitness equipment too and the NC stuff is equal in build strength, quality and finish - though more affordable. I've brought dumb bells, plyo box, H-Series rig components etc. Their freight rates and shipping times are fair, given the weight of the products shipping. Keep up the great work team!

Aleksandra Gutowska 02/12/21

Amazing quality equipment and incredible customer service! I was on the hunt for a high quality belt squat machine and these guys delivered just that. Ordered and it was ready for pick-up a few days later. I ran into some hiccups with being able to pick it up, but the team at NC Fitness swooped to the rescue and delivered the parts free of charge. I could not recommend NC Fitness more! Thank you for helping me take my garage gym to the next level!!
