Do I need a gym membership to follow this program? What equipment do I need?

We recommend doing this program at the gym where you will be able to explore which weights to use and will have access to increasingly heavier weights.

However, we understand that you may prefer to follow the program at home. That’s fine!

The strength and conditioning component of this program will require:

  • Medium jumpstretch band (possibly a light or heavy jumpstretch bandIt depends on your current level of strength!)
  • Ideally a set of “light,” “medium” and “heavy” dumbbells. It’s fine if you start with just 2 sets of dumbbells, but it’s nice to have options!) Light usually = a set of 8-12 lb dumbbells, heavier usually = a 15 to 25 lb set of dumbbells. Again it depends on YOUR current level of strength and the exercise.
  • A looped / mini band in extra light or light resistance (again you may need heavier. It just depends!)
  • A pull-up bar.
  • A bench or box – though you can probably use a sturdy chair if you are doing this at home.

There is the option to use a suspension trainer (e.g. a TRX or Olympic Rings), but it is NOT required to complete the program!

For many of the exercises, you have the option of using dumbbells, a band, OR a suspension trainer, so depending on what equipment you have on hand + would like to invest in, it’s possible that you could do the program at home. The program also comes with equipment recommendations, if you’d like to purchase equipment for home use.

However, all of this equipment, with the exception of the jumpstretch band and looped band, can easily found in most commercial gyms.

The mobility and stability routines in the e-book require little to no equipment and could easily be done at home.
