Equipment needed

You only need a plank! The plank is a fantastic piece of equipment. It is versatile, allowing us to introduce many different exercises, and it is safe because it's low and very stable. The plank is also easy for you to store, allows you to work in limited space, and is cost effective to build your own. We even provide step-by-step instructions on how to build your own customplank.
