Begin Your Jedi Training with Star Wars Fitness Gear 

star wars fitness gear onit
It appears that the Empire and the Rebel Alliance are at it again. After taking over our backyard cookouts, the Star Wars franchise has inspired Onnit to develop a new force in fitness equipment for those training for the galactic war.

Themed workout equipment is a fun way to fuel extra motivation in the weight room. With Star Wars fitness gear — kettlebells, a slam ball, and a yoga mat — you can kick your workout regime into hyperdrive.

Each item is available for pre-order here, but, before you go, let’s take a look at the arsenal.

Death Star Slam Ball, $75

Death Star, Star Wars Fitness Gear

A slam ball is a weighted fitness ball that can be used in a variety of high-activity exercises designed for gaining explosive power and speed, like that of your Jedi heroes. This 20-lb slam ball is made of incredibly durable polyurethane rubber, so you won’t have to worry about someone blowing up the Death Star this time around. This is the ultimate piece of Star Wars fitness gear.

Han Solo Yoga Mat, $65

Han Solo Yoga Mat

This reversible, heavy-duty exercise mat shows the iconic image of Han Solo frozen in carbonite. Enjoy some non-slip grip and moisture-absorbing technology when trying to bust out that last set of ab workouts (because we all want to avoid looking like Jabba the Hut).

Star Wars Kettlebells

These custom-sculpted iron kettlebells are not only essential weapons for getting a full-body workout, but they will strike fear into fellow gym rats when they try to swoop in on your space. They’re available in three different weights for an expanded range of routines:

  • Darth Vader 70 lbs, $200
  • Stormtrooper 60 lbs, $180
  • Boba Fett 50 lbs, $150

More of a Marvel fanatic instead? Onnit also has a sweet collection of Marvel-inspired workout gear, as well as a line of beastly kettlebells that work their way up to Bigfoot status.

Gold’s Gym’s New Sportswear Line Pays Homage to the ‘Mecca of Bodybuilding’
golds gym sportswear line news gold s retro  grand collection

Tired of tight, skin-sweaty, stretchy workout clothes? Got a hankering to show-off cuts and curves popping out beneath relaxed workout duds? Get into Gold's Gym’s upcoming “Grand Collection,” a revival and a long-overdue homage to its first Venice Beach home, the “Mecca of Bodybuilding” that contributed to the sport's global appeal.

This exclusive cut and sewn collection gives a nod to the era when Joe Gold built his first gym on the beach (in response to being barred from the Santa Monica pier) in 1965. The “Grand Collection” revisits those halcyon first days with a limited debut that includes nine styles: Hoodies, t-shirts, shorts, jogging pants, sweatshirts, and more. Gold’s intends for each piece to make a powerful statement that reinforces its fitness world ubiquity, from Los Angeles to South Beach.

Biometrics 101: What You Can Learn from Patrick Mahomes’ Longtime Trainer
patrick mahomes workout guide 0  whoop 1

Behind a brilliant player like the Kansas City Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes is a brilliant trainer. That man is Bobby Stroupe, a 41-year-old lifelong Texan who met the future football great when he was in fourth grade. Back then, everything was done by group, and Mahomes was just one of many kids who, in small pods, may not have recognized their own future greatness but were united by the desire to get better. And that’s what the future Super Bowl Champ and NFL MVP would do, one day at a time. “I know from the outside a lot of people feel like he’s this gifted person,” Stroupe says. “And while that’s obvious, he’s one of the hardest working human beings that I’ve ever been around.”

Stroupe knows a bit about hard work himself: Once the smallest kid in his class, boy or girl, through the eighth grade and with Forrest Gump-style braces on his legs, he worked through his growth spurt to set high school records in track and field, powerlifting, and football. It was in the latter that he would focus, playing in college and later on an arena team, though even then, he says, the sport wasn’t his ultimate goal. “From a pretty young age, I knew exactly what I wanted to do,” he says, “and what I wanted to do was help kids who were like myself.”
