Titan Fitness is one of those companies that shows up frequently when researching home gyms. In 99% of cases their products are less expensive (by a decent amount) than their competitors and their products are, from what we hear, decent quality.
Before we get too far into this I want to say that this post isn’t an endorsement of Titan Fitness or their Ruck Weights. It’s also not a sponsored post (we shelled out money for these) and we hope it gives the community insight into what appears to be the newest ruck weights on the market. We saw they were available thanks to a post on Reddit and bought them immediately. These join our growing collection of weights including GORUCK Ruck Plates, ENC Creation Weights, and SHplates.
Purchasing Titan Fitness Ruck Weights
In addition to selling on their own website it appears that Titan Fitness is also selling these Ruck Weights on Amazon. You can check out the 10 lb, 20 lb, 30 lb, and 45 lb Ruck Weights over there as well as the few reviews that have been left so far.
Titan Fitness Ruck Weight Preview
Titan Fitness is mostly known for their racks as an alternative to Rogue Fitness… the general consensus is if you can afford Rogue buy Rogue but if you can’t then look at Titan. When these were purchased there was a discount code on the Titan Fitness website which brought the total for all four plates down to under $150… $146.31 shipped for all four plates to be exact.
For the most part the savings that you see with Titan Fitness equipment has to do with the products being made in China as opposed to the United States.
Their Ruck Weights are absolutely no different and are manufactured in China as well.
Titan Fitness just released four ruck weights which mirror the weight offerings that GORUCK has. They’ve got…
|10 lbs||8.5″ x 5.75″ x 0.98″||$24.95|
|20 lbs||13.5″ x 7″ x 0.99″||$34.95|
|30 lbs||14.5″ x 8.75″ x 1.04″||$44.95|
|45 lbs||15″ x 9.5″ x 1.36″||$64.95|
These things just showed up so we really haven’t had any time to compare them to the competition so here’s a bunch of pictures and expect a Titan Fitness Ruck Weights vs GORUCK Ruck Plate Comparison post soon.
The first ruck weight we’ve got here is the 10 lb which is the weight I use the least. There’s no chance I’ll ever be under 150 lbs so it only sees use when people fly in for a Light and weigh under 150 lbs.
One side of the weight features the Titan Fitness logo while the other side has the number 10 in case you forget this is the 10 pound ruck weight.
We’ve got a scale over here (it’s a cheap luggage scale) that we use for weighing sandbags and rucks so I figured why not grab it and see what these plates actually weigh. The 10 lb Ruck Weight that we received comes in at 10.1 lbs… not bad.
The 20 lb Ruck Weight is long, skinny, and features a giant 20 on it.
The flip side features the Titan Fitness logo and that’s about it.
Our 20 Lb Titan Fitness Ruck Weight comes in at 20.4 lbs which is nice to see. Would much rather have that higher than lower.
Next up is the 30 lb Ruck Weight which is probably our most-used weight size as it’s the size needed to participate in a GORUCK Tough (or Heavy) if you weigh over 150. They’ve got the giant 30 on one side and, as you’d probably expect, the…
… Titan Fitness logo on the other side.
Weighing this weight was a surprise… it came in at 29.3 lbs which is definitely less than 30 lbs. There’s roughly 1% missing here and I am very curious what some of the other 30 lb weights weigh. It’s possible there’s a slight issue with the mold and it just kicks out 29.3 lb weights or if maybe ours has a chip on it.
I weighed the GORUCK 30 lb Ruck Plate to see what that would come out at and found 29.9 lbs which is acceptable to me. The scale I’m using cost $10.99 so I by no means expect medical accuracy from it.
After weighing a few plates I went back to the 30 lb Ruck Weight to get another reading. It came in at 29.3 lbs again so I think we can say it’s definitely under 30 lbs.
Finally, we’ve got the 45 lb Ruck Weight which is one we only use in training. On one side we have, as you should expect by now, a giant 45.
The flip side on this one has the Titan Fitness logo.
Grabbed the scale again to see what this one actually weighs and it came in at 44.2 lbs which is slightly under that 45 lbs. Again, I’d be interested in hearing from other people who own one of these what their weight weighs.
The box this one came in was in sad shape when it showed up. You can tell it really took a beating in transit.
As mentioned at the beginning this is just a preview post so I can’t speak too much about the quality of these weights. They appear well made and I’ll definitely be using them in some capacity to see how they handle real abuse.
Hopefully you enjoyed this insight into the Titan Fitness Ruck Weights and if you’ve got any questions feel free to leave them in the comments. Coming soon will be a weight comparison between these and the GORUCK Ruck Plates and another post on how weights fit into the new Rucker 2.0 as well as the Rucker 1.0.
