How the Barrow Came about 

Created in collaboration with Pete Holman, a celebrated Strength Coach and the developer of the TRX RipTrainer and Nautilus Glute Drive, The Escape Barrow is the sole ergonomic, back-safe, and aesthetically pleasing machine that unifies two crucial exercise techniques: the loaded carry and the sled push. This trendsetting equipment capitalizes on the ‘loaded carry’, also called the ‘Farmers Carry’, to develop grip, core, and hip strength, while also allowing an effortless transition into a sled push to hone power and metabolic endurance.

 This robust, galvanized, outdoor-ready piece of kit adds an extra dimension to exercise zones. Compact and unintimidating, The Escape Barrow boasts a maximum load of 200kg/440lbs, making it an ideal choice for both casual and competitive athletes alike. Exclusively available from Escape Fitness, The Escape Barrow allows users to surpass their potential and reach a higher level of performance in a safe and secure manner.
