Episode 044 – All About Fitness Equipment

There are times when having specialized equipment is essential to getting a job done right, and then there are other times you can accomplish a lot with simply the basics. In this week’s episode of the Fit Men Movement Podcast, we are discussing fitness equipment, everything from the simple stuff, like a water bottle; to the more advanced stuff like power racks. It’s a great conversation on all things fitness equipment and we underscore the importance of simply getting started on your fitness journey. Having all of the equipment you think you need really isn’t necessary.

Here are some article on Chris’ website (yourfitnesspath.com), that provides some additional detail on a lot of the equipment we discuss throughout the episode.
