TRX GO Suspension Training Kit - $99.95 (Amazon)

This lightweight (weighs just 1 pound), portable bodyweight training system will help you get a great workout in - no matter where or when you need it. The system can attach to a door, pole, beam, or tree and can be used indoors or out. It requires just one anchor point, has fully-adjustable straps, and is unmatched in durability. A 350-pound weight capacity allows just about anyone to enjoy a highly effective bodyweight routine to a workout regimen. 


WODFitters WF Titanium Resistance Bands - $12.95 (Amazon)

Another great tool for bodyweight and accessory work, resistance bands allow you to add more "weight" to a workout. Use for pull ups, push ups, dips, and just about any movement. Five different thicknesses vary the workout intensity.



Primal Kitchen COLLAGEN FUEL® Drink Mix - Vanilla - $39.99 (Primal Kitchen)

Collagen is an important protein, and this is an excellent way to get a bit more of into your daily intake. A great substitute or complement for dairy-based creamers, coconut-based powder mixes easily into your morning smoothie or Bulletproof coffee.

Fraser SR-2S Speed Rope 3.0 - $47.00 (Rogue Fitness)

This is by far our favorite speed rope. Fast spin, firm grip, and red anodized aluminum handles which are - get this - etched by lasers. LASERS!!

Not the cheapest speed rope you can buy, but this will definitely help you get to that coveted first double-under (and many more after that).

The latest iteration of the F-Lite 235 is a highly flexible cross-trainer with a 4mm drop that allows for a quick transition between lifting movements and functional activity.

Our go-to shoe for multi-movement WODs.

Need something to stay warm between the parking lot and the squat rack? The men’s Linear Tech hoodie provides a super soft and warm interior without the bulk. With 5 unique pockets (double side pockets and an arm pocket), you've got plenty of room for keys, phones, energy bars, and for the Master's athletes - reading glasses. 


Starting Strength: Basic Barbell Training (3rd edition) - $29.95 price depends on format (Amazon)

And speaking of reading material, Mark Rippetoe's Starting Strength is the definitive guide to barbell training. This will guide the novice through the beginning phases of training and programming. A must-read for anyone starting a barbell program. Which should be everyone, right?
