Workout Equipment

Training tools help athletes train and compete more safely and effectively, adhere to workout regimens, receive complete and accurate feedback and create additional challenges. Tools that athletes use on a regular basis include workout equipment (e.g., barbells, physioballs), sports equipment (e.g., baseball bats, football helmets) and devices that monitor, supplement and intensify training (e.g., heart rate monitors, watches, GPS devices and training apps).
