TAK Basic Equipment

You will be using your own body weight for many exercises, especially in the beginning, but you’ll need some basic pieces of equipment for TAK. Think of it as an investment in your health.
I’d much rather spend money on a few pieces of equipment 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 are fit! Seriously. I haven't been sick in 5 years!

 

Threaded 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.) This one comes with a regular bar and a full set of plates:

Cap Barbell 100 Lb Threaded Barbell Set

Kettlebell - 10 lbs., 15 lbs. 20 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.

Cap Barbell Kettlebell - 10 Lbs.

 

Pull Up Bar

This is great for beginning pull ups because you can reach the ground with your feet to do jumping ones!

Cap Barbell Upper Body Toner

 

Stud Bar Pull up bar 

A great investment for your health and fitness! Pull-ups are one of the core exercises in Creation Fitness TAKs. 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! This bar can hold 600 lbs., so there's no excuse. This is the one you see us use in the TAK demo videos, and I highly recommend it.

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

Dumbbell Set - 5-25 lbs.

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

Cap Barbell Rubber Hex Dumbbell Set - 5-25 Lbs.
Body Ball - 75 Cm
You'll use this for a lot of exercises. Great for core stability.
Valeo Body Ball - 75 Cm
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. 

 

The TRX Professional Trainer is very versitile and very effective, and we use it a lot in TAK! Definitely need to get one of these!
