What is it about dads that make them so hard to shop for? If you have a father figure in your life who loves to work out, look no further! Legend Fitness has five great gift ideas for the guy who can’t get enough gym time.
Wall-Mounted Pull-Up Bar
A home gym staple, the Wall-Mounted Pull-Up Bar (3181) is a must-have for any guy who likes getting a workout in but may not have the space to put up a whole rig. This is a robust, round-handled bar that you bolt to the studs in your wall for the king of the common man exercises: the pull-up. This is no common pull-up bar though! It is a single, fully-welded piece available in over 25 durable powder coat finishes. The cross tube is a round 1.25-inch diameter bar, which is perfect for gripping tight and working on upper body strength.
Wood Plyo Box 3-in-1
If dad is more of a leg guy, the Wood Plyo Box 3-in-1 (3210-3N1) may be more his speed. This robust, economical box is one of the best options for plyometric training for home gyms. Constructed from tough plywood that has been cut to shape with a computer-controlled router, all corners of the Legend Fitness Wood Plyo Box 3-in-1 employ box joint construction secured in two axes by screws. The edges are then sanded off so that missed jumps aren’t quite as intimidating (your dad will thank you… or at least his shins will). Porthole handles make it easier to move around and to take advantage of three different heights to create jumps of 20, 24 and 30 inches in height. It also doubles as a great place to set a towel and a water bottle.
Perfect for the guy whose home gym may need a little shaping up, the Legend Fitness Plateholder/Organizer (3173) is big on storage but small on space. Six hundred pounds of Olympic plates plus two bars can be stored in a 26-inch by 26-inch footprint! Give him the gift that will forever keep his Olympic plates and bars off the floor, thanks to its fully welded construction and one-inch diameter pegs. What guy doesn’t like an organized weight room?
If he’s already the organized type, perhaps a unique tool to help him stay fit is more up his alley. The Legend Fitness Ground-Based Grappler (3220) consists of a weighted base plate with two gimbaled sleeves into which the user secures one or two Olympic bars for a wide variety of upper body and lower body functional training. It’s a floor-based version of our popular Landmine attachments, and allows for a wide range of exercises in one small area. It comes standard with the Wide Grip Handle (3220W) and Vee Grip Handle (3220V). Note that bars are sold separately.
Legend Fitness Bearing Bar
Speaking of bars, the Legend Fitness Bearing Bar (LGD-NBB-20KG-BRT) also makes for a great gift. Whether you have a seasoned lifter, or someone putting together their first garage gym, this reasonably-priced, American-made bar has 10 needle bearings designed to spin and spin and spin. Manufactured to Legend specifications, this bar is 100% made in the USA from turned, ground and polished steel. Featuring Olympic marks with light knurling (no center knurling) and bright zinc plating, this bar provides the right amount of grip and hand placement information for explosive lifts. The sleeves are zinc plated, with 16.25-inch load length and a beveled 1.25-inch thick collar. Also, if ever the bearings should need servicing, this bar breaks down without the need for a vice or special tools, so the life of this bar will extend until it becomes an heirloom.
With Father’s Day fast approaching, now is the time to get your Legend Fitness order in. Thinking about one of these for your dad? Or maybe you need to drop a hint to the kids in your life? Either way, reach out to our qualified Legend Fitness Sales Team for the hook up.
