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

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

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

Whether you're a fan of mixed martial arts (MMA) or just curious about the behind-the-scenes routines of professional fighters, you might be wondering how UFC champions "Suga" Sean O'Malley and Aljamain "Funkmaster" Sterling get ready for fight week.

Shohei Ohtani all but gone, MLB franchise LA Angels may also lose Mike Trout: Report
Our GM hopes they both move to Chavez Ravine to play for The Dodgers
Shohei Otani playing baseball

The Los Angeles Angels may be on their way to a major team overhaul. Shohei Ohtani, who is one of the best and most innovative two-way players in the history of baseball, has already made it clear that he wants to leave the team, and now, news has broken suggested that Mike Trout, the team's other major star, could also be on his way out the door. Needless to say, losing both of their major stars could have an enormous impact on what the Angels look like moving forward.
Shohei Ohtani is almost definitely leaving
At the end of this season, during which Ohtani has been riddled with injuries, the phenom will be a free agent, and those closest to the league suggest that he's likely to sign with another team. Everyone from the Los Angeles Dodgers to the New York Mets is expected to pursue him this off-season for understandable reasons, and Ohtani has previously made it clear that he's not necessarily thrilled with the way this season has gone for the Angels, who are set to miss the playoffs completely.

Ohtani has yet to formalize any sort of deal with another team, but the question seems to be more about where he'll end up than whether he'll stay with the Angels. The team did choose to hold onto him past the trade deadline, a move they say they don't regret, so it's still possible that the two sides find some way to come to an agreement. In all likelihood, though, Ohtani's time with the Angels is done, and he'll be in a new uniform when the next season starts.
