Outdoor-Fitness Equipment and Appliances for Home Shopping
Thanks to crosstraining facilities you can do one of the hardest workouts ever. Crosstraining is one of the most strenuous sports worldwide. In principle, you can even compare it to a boot camp. The training methods and facilities are known only from the army. Also in Germany, the crosstraining is now a growing trend that originally comes from the USA.
The advantage of this training method is that it is a mixture of three training variants:
1. Functional Training
2. Competitive sports
3. Classic fitness training
This makes it suitable for all age groups. Likewise one can get through the hard workouts also as a beginner and constantly increase. Each training session shall be divided into three categories. There are endurance units, gymnastic elements and strength exercises. In a crosstraining gym you will always find the current trainings written on a box.
In short, you can describe this sport with the following slogan: Maximum strain on the cardiovascular system and muscles. Physical fitness as well as mental strength is incredibly stressed. Even if you can train with your own body weight, you still need some accessories and equipment, such as power racks, pull-up bars, dip bars, kettlebells and other items.
Basic training is also possible without a trainer. Because you can hardly hurt yourself with your own body weight. The muscles, joints and bones are not stressed too much, but in an appropriate range.
In the following we explain exactly what you need and which expenses you can save. But not only the sports equipment is decisive, but also the accessories.
The 5 most popular training devices!
The most popular and important are the rigs. This is because you can use almost all parts of your body and keep fit accordingly. The products like a crosstrainer you do not need in most cases. Finally, you can also go running in the fresh air, which is also much healthier.
The rig is often called rack. In the rack you can place dumbbells and barbell bars or do pull-up exercises. This means you can do without weights and do not need weight plates that you lose at home or are unnecessary.
For such a fitness article you can combine it with a Rope. Place these around a corner and perform the corresponding movements. The Ropes train predominantly the condition. Nevertheless, shoulder, stomach, back, arms and legs are also trained.
Not to forget is the pull-up bar or pull-up bar. It's usually included with a rig. If you only need the pole, you can also buy it separately. In our online shop we sell the pull-up bar as a single part. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are happy to advise you.
As fourth product we can name pullup rings. On these you can also do pull-ups or muscle ups as well as dips. However, the challenge here is to maintain balance, which is a typical aspect of functional training.
The fact that the balance has to be maintained means that other muscle parts are also addressed and used.
athletes like to use such training devices. After all, they are much more demanding than others.
Last we want to highlight the Kettlebells. In the following we will go into the topic in more detail. After all, they are the classics for every workout. You can't do without a kettlebell in strength training either. The movements are very natural and therefore easy on the joints.
These five parts should make up most of your home equipment. Almost every gym now has such equipment. The performance of Calisthenics does not necessarily have to happen at home, but it is much more pleasant and cheaper in the long run.
Good outdoor fitness machines for strength, speed and condition
A healthy fitness consists of strength, speed and condition. So that your condition and your heart are brought to the limit accordingly. Normally this is achieved very quickly by jumping exercises. For this you can use skipping ropes or so-called plyoboxes.
The condition can also be trained by a series of strokes. In addition, fast series of blows on a sandbag also strain the upper body muscles. This also places a heavy strain on the cardiovascular system.
Another option is to buy a truck tire or tractor tire and hammer it with a hammer. Of course you can also do simpler training exercises for your condition.
but for this you need a bicycle ergometer, a spinning bike or a rowing ergometer. Of course you can also move in nature. This is certainly much more fun.
For strength training medicine balls are also recommended. In addition, you can also do sports very well with cross-fitness equipment. The medicine ball is also intended for fitness and speed. For example, you take it in your arms and run with it.

Kettlebells - the classics
ball dumbbells - as they are called in German - are the classics. Anyone who thinks of crosstraining or anything like that. They're in high demand. They have a handle at the top and are flattened towards the bottom. In the different Workouts of the Day they can be used very versatilely.
For example, you can use it to make swings or snatch or the so-called Turkish Get Up. There are really a lot of possibilities here. So that you can still imagine something under the names, we would like to briefly describe the training exercises below.
Here you grip the bell with one or two hands. You hold it by the handle and swing it with sufficient swing from the hip from hanging over the head. This is a strain on the entire body, so you condition many muscle groups.
Snatch describes a quite similar training exercise. The ball dumbbell stands at the beginning on the ground and is then also pushed over the head with sufficient momentum. This training exercise will train your fitness very strongly.
Turkish Get Up
You put the ball dumbbell over your head with one or two hands. Afterwards one lies down from standing and gets up again. This trains the endurance and condition very strongly.
gymnastics rings and medicine balls for training!

This means that you have to stabilize the rings with your body when performing movements. Its entire body provides sufficient stabilization. This has the advantage that the deep musculature is very strongly stressed.

The best thing is that you can attach such rings to our fitness machine or to a gymnastics machine. In addition, you can hang them at any time and, for example, attach your daughter's swing. These are also available at a reasonable price in our webshop.

crosstraining for at home is possible. There are enough body weight exercises so that you can create an effective work-out like this. But it's always a matter of taste. Fitness exercises such as pull-ups, dips or hanggling are very difficult to simulate without stations.
If you still like to do the same fitness exercises all the time and can motivate yourself in this way, then so be it. Nevertheless, there are some aspects to consider. For example, you should warm up thoroughly in advance. It is sufficient to perform dynamic movements for about 5-8 minutes.
For example, you can do light jumps, squats, push-ups or run on the spot. You should also stretch a little. This minimizes the risk of injury. Here you can find more about the crosstrainings. Afterwards, it is important that you perform the movements in a controlled manner. Ideally, you'll always have everything under control. Do not pay attention at the beginning to the given time, but look at your execution and correct yourself best.

should you build your own sports equipment?
Here we can answer with a clear "No". It would be far too dangerous to build them yourself. After all, you need to have the appropriate skills in the field of welding and working. On the other hand, you also need the right material. Ultimately, you pay with your time. Not only do you have expenses for welding equipment and materials, but you also lose a lot of time.
In this you can do more meaningful things. Furthermore, the risk of an accident should not be underestimated. Would you really let your child play with it? Would you attach accessories such as swings or anything else with a clear conscience?
security is still in the foreground and due to our many years of experience in this field, we can already guarantee a certain level of security. You certainly don't want to blame yourself for your child's accident. Finally, very bad injuries are possible.
