Everlast Punching Bag Deals a Knockout to the Competition Everlast has been around for quite a while. The company was founded in 1910 by Jacob Golomb. He started with a line of swimsuits that he said would last much longer than others. Obviously he could back up his claims, because his line of swimsuits took off into a booming business with the help of Jack Dempsey. Jack Dempsey was a boxer and, eventually, a heavyweight champion. He gave Golomb the idea to extend the business to boxing. Everlast has its hands in all aspects of sporting. The company produces raiments for protection, such as boxing gloves and mouth guards, while participating in the various sports. Everlast makes padded apparel for training. It also produces equipment to train against. Punching bags have been used since even before combat was a sport. They have had various forms, from the carcasses of dead animals in ancient times to bags filled with sand or water in modern times. These days people can choose how they want a punching bag made by size, shape, and material used to fill. The speed bag is a small balllike bag. It is suspended on an eyelevel platform by either a spring or a swivel to promote speed, reaction time, and handeye coordination. The double end bag is shaped somewhat like the speed bag but is held in place at abdomen level by two elastic cords from ceiling to ball and from floor to ball. This bag is used to train accuracy and guard. A free standing bag is a punching bag that surrounds a pedestal filled with a heavy substance for balance. By far, the most popular punching bag is the heavy bag. It is suspended by a chain from a ceiling or a specialized stand. The heavy bag is used for stance and maximum force training. No matter what sort of punching bags you are interested in buying, you can bet that Everlast will have the perfect one just for you!
