TAK Basic Equipment

You will be using your own body weight for many exercises, especially in the beginning, but you may need some equipment for TAK as you build strength. Think of it as an investment in your health.

How about spending a little money on a few pieces of equipment rather than on a gym membership or a doctor's visit or insurance copay! You will have way less doctor's visits when you eat right and get fit! Seriously. I haven't been sick in 6 years!


Barbell Set

(An olympic bar weighs 45 lb - if you go with that, you'll only need to add a few plate sizes - like 2, 5, 10 lbs.) 



If you're just starting out, 10 lbs. is a good weight to start with, but you'll eventually require heavier weight, so keep that in mind.



Multi Grip Pull up Bar

A great investment for your health and fitness! Pull-ups are one of the core exercises in TAK. I thought I'd never be able to pull my body weight up...EVER...but you build up strength with TAK, and you WILL be doing pull-ups! Assisted ones, jumping ones, reverse ones....I don't care. They all work! 

HandBand Pro®

These will increase your grip and totally save your hands from blisters and rips! Awesome for all bar work!




Dumbbell Set 

You don't need a whole set. Start with 8 lbs and 10 lbs at first.

Plyo Ball 

You'll use this for a lot of exercises. Great for core stability.

Speed Rope

Getting whipped by one of these really hurts, but you'll get better at it.


Wall Ball

These come in many different weights and sizes. You might want to start out with 8 lbs., but you’ll quickly move up to 10 or more. They are expensive, so it might be a good idea to start with 10 lbs. and just do fewer reps until you build up strength.


Plyo Boxes 

These soft boxes are ideal for box jumps and step ups. Eliminate the trip for stitches when you miss one jump. 



Suspension Trainer

Very versitile and very effective, and we use it a lot in TAK! Definitely need to get one of these!
