Best Rigs and Wallmounts
With the burgeoning popularity of Crossfit and Boot Camp programs, commercial gym owners and home fitness fans alike are grabbing hold of workout rigs and wall mounts for all the right reasons. Designed for the creative mind with friends looking to work out together, these set ups can be quite intimidating at first sight. Essentially a network of modified squat racks crafted together, both rigs and wall mounts strike one as the free weight barbell lover’s answer to all-in-one-machines, but with the added bonus of group exercise opportunities. Great for Boot Camp-style workout parties, both bodyweight drills and the Big Four barbell exercises – squat, bench press, overhead press, deadlift – work well with multiple simultaneous users. Anything your mind can imagine, from hanging knee raises to good old fashioned bicep curls, are part of the mix when considering the iron addict’s jungle gym.
Best Rigs and Wallmounts
Rigs and wall mounts are a great way to spark up a gym of any size, and most certainly make a professional training studio all the more profitable. Lifters of any age or stage can find something to work on with these units, which encourage a mix of body weight exercises and traditional barbell movements. Sufficient space is typically the first concern of a potential customer, and the main reason for looking at both halves of the equation, as a good way to look at the wall mount is being half a rig.
