Whether you’re new to lifting or an experienced athlete, sometimes you’ll run across a term you’ve never heard before. That’s why we’ve put together the Rig Dictionary, featuring all the terms you’ll hear when shopping for and using a rig.
A rig is a training station that comes in various sizes and can be enhanced with various attachments – think of it like an oversized, open power rack. Rigs are bolted to the ground or wall, and multiple stations can be connected to save space. Rigs allow multiple athletes to work at the same time and are incredibly versatile -- optimal for functional fitness training and built to handle muscle-ups, pull-ups, toes to bars, squats, bench press, and more.SHOP NOW
