Functional Training Equipment

Functional weight training employs common movements used in the home, at work and during leisure activity.  Wondering how to use the equipment?  Click on any embedded link below for a video demonstration from Escape Fitness!

Slamball

Use the Slamball to develop core strength and explosive power. This piece of equipment is designed to be powerfully thrown (slammed) onto the ground.

Kettlebell

The momentum and deceleration movements of the Kettlebell help to build endurance and power and challenge your stabilization by forcing changes in your center of gravity.

Vertball

Use the Vertball in challenges against the clock, such as the wall ball exercise to develop your shoulder, core, leg and glute strength, and give you a true challenge.

Tires 

Use the TIYR to develop strength, power and balance, with exercises like tire flips, decline pushups or step ups. Also works well for plyometric activities like on/off or in/out jumps.

Ropes

Ropes can develop strength throughout the entire body through a variety of exercises that vary in coordination demands and intensity. 

Bulgarian Bag

The Bulgarian Bag strengthens and increases your muscular endurance and overall shoulder and joint mobility. It is perfect for a variety of unique exercises for every athlete and sport because it delivers extreme all-round fitness.

Corebag

The Corebag is designed with handles and an optimum height off the floor, allowing you to mimic complex, compound movements like the Clean (Olympic Lift).

Core Momentum Trainer (CMT)

The Core Momentum Trainer (CMT) magnifies the cardio effect of movements and connects your core to your outer extremities for better protection against potential injury. An audio feature helps determine when to work harder or to stop.

Sandbags

Lift, carry, throw and slam – the instability in the Sandbag makes it a functional challenge for any user.

GRIPR

The shifting weight of the GRIPR challenges your balance and coordination, causing you to regularly adapt to the dynamic experience.
