Gym Kit Essentials: Our Most Popular Products
Here at Kitbox, we spend a lot of our time sourcing the best products from the UK and beyond. Everything you'll find on our website can help you improve your health and athletic performance in one way or another.
But where should you start? Here's a guide to our most popular products.
Stance socks have taken the community by storm over the past 12 months, so it’s hardly surprising to see them consistently feature in our most popular products. Over the past couple of months, we’ve brought in loads of new designs. If you need to up your sock game, these are for you.
The JAW pullup grips are our most reviewed product - and it’s clear they’re one of the best loved, too:
“Have been struggling to find some decent hand protection for when Pull-ups and T2B crop up in our WODs. The new Jaw grips are very comfortable and give much more protection than anything else I tried, whilst also feeling as if they're not there when working out - they don't hamper your grip at all. So far so good after a week's use, with no tearing!”
“Lightweight, non-bulky and perfect fit for bar work (pull-ups, T2B etc) and flexible enough to be used for a whole WOD including barbells. They stretch so if they feel small at first, they will give. Great product.”
If you struggle with pullups, and you’re tired of constantly ripping your hands, you need a pair of these in your kit bag. They’ve been designed to cope with the demands of a tough WOD, without restricting movement.
Rehband Knee Sleeves
The Rehband knee sleeves are available in a variety of thicknesses, depending on whether you’ll want to use them for WODs, or just lifting. They’re designed to provide extra support and warmth, as well as stabilising the knee joint.
Weightlifting shoes have come a long way in the past few years, and there’s now a variety available to suit your needs. The Inov8 Fastlifts are a popular choice in most boxes, as they’ve been designed to cater specifically for those who need a versatile shoe. If you’re looking for a shoe that’s equally comfortable with WODs as it is on the lifting platform, these are for you.
2XU Compression Gear
What you wear when you’re training affects both performance and recovery. It’s not just about looking good (although we know that’s important too!) - the best clothing also has functional benefits.
The main benefits of compression clothing fall into two categories:
It improves performance by preventing muscle fatigue.
It speeds up recovery, reducing soreness, to get you back in the box ASAP.
It’s not just snake oil - and many studies have supported the use of compression clothing, which is thought to work by increasing the blood flow to your muscles.
We stock a few compression brands on Kitbox, with 2XU being the most popular.
