The Best CrossFit Equipment for Your Home Gym

If the Covid-19 pandemic taught fitness enthusiasts anything, it was the value of a home gym. And for CrossFitters, not being able to get to boxes during quarantine was especially rough.

While CrossFit is all about getting the in the gym to knock out super tough workouts (like the Murph and the ‘Girl WODs’) with your fellow CrossFitters, it’s not always possible, no matter how dedicated you are to your local CrossFit box and community. (But here are 45 hilarious CrossFit memes that you can send to your buddies that they will totally relate to.) Or maybe you really fell in love with home workouts during that time and want to continue to mix up your training from home. Even as many gyms are fully reopened, it’s still just so easy and convenient to invest in some equipment for a reliable setup at home.

So having some key pieces of CrossFit training equipment at home can help you stay dedicated to your training and goals when ‘life’ happens. (Of course, you don’t always need equipment to get in a killer workout. Here are some amazing body weight exercises to smash.)

But stocking your home gym setup with equipment like battle ropes, kettle bells, sand bags, medicine balls, a weighted vest and more will make it possible to do even more work. Looking to set up an amazing home gym geared for CrossFit workouts? Here are 12 pieces of equipment that you should invest in.
