If I don’t have access to the equipment, what can I use instead? 

If for any reason you don’t have access to some of the recommended pieces of equipment, you still have other options: 

  • Barbell – Dumbbells can be used instead, holding one dumbbell in each hand. When using dumbbells, ensure they are kept by your sides and not on the back of your neck.
  • Bosu – You can omit the bosu altogether, but you will need to modify the exercises accordingly. E.g. Complete regular Burpees in place of the Bosu Burpee!
  • Dumbbells – Two safe, heavy objects can be used, such as bags of food, water bottles, or other household items – get creative!
  • Flat Bench – Any flat, stable surface will be suitable, such as a chair, ledge, park bench, or sturdy box.
  • Kettlebells – One large dumbbell (8-15kg) can be used instead.
  • Medicine Ball – Dumbbells held in each hand, or anything of the same weight, will be suitable.
  • Skipping Rope – There is no substitute for this, but you could complete ‘air skips’ if you are space restricted.

When selecting alternatives, it is important to ensure that they are both safe and secure prior to commencing your workout.

What if I don’t have access to any of the equipment or suggested substitutes?

You are welcome to omit equipment from your workout and simply use your own body weight to complete the exercises.

Please note: We cannot guarantee you will achieve the same results as those who include equipment in their workouts.
