The special wrist bandages: Performance Wrist Wraps
Probably the most popular, small calisthenics equipment are the wrist bandages, which are especially adapted to the sport. With static material and silicone pressure on the bands, they ensure that the athlete retains maximum freedom of movement and still has a stable wrist. With more than 20,000 units sold, the GORNATION wrist bandages are among the most popular bandages of this kind and are a perfect gift for a calisthenics athlete, as the numerous colors are gladly adapted to the outfit and varied.
The Calisthenics Shirt in red or black: Calisthenics Shirt Men
Someone who does calisthenics would like to show what kind of sport they do and identify with it. Therefore, one of the most popular GORNATION shirts has a classic design and with 100% organic cotton, it is comfortable to wear for the athlete in leisure or training. The T-shirt has a normal appearance and is available in red and black.
Performance-enhancing elbow bandages: Elbow Sleeves
Especially athletes who want to reach a new level and regularly do push-ups, handstands or other exercises on floor and pole, experience a performance boost as well as prevention of injuries through Elbow Sleeves. The bandages for the elbow from GORNATION increase the blood flow, stabilize the joint without being disturbing and look simply classic. No athlete wants a bandage that looks like it was prescribed by a doctor.
Everyone can use that: Liquid Chalk
No one wants slippery bars and sweaty hands, but a firm grip and maximum control. That's why most calisthenics and street workout athletes turn to Liquid Chalk, also known as liquid chalk or magnesia. The hands are creamed with the liquid and after 5-10 seconds of drying, an evenly distributed layer of chalk remains. The GORNATION Chalk also has the advantage that it has a considerably lower alcohol content and smells less chemical. Available in two practical packages of 50ml and 200ml.
Another equipment for EVERY sportsman: Resistance Bands
Resistance bands are perfect as a gift for calisthenics enthusiasts because they can be used in so many ways that you can't go wrong with them. They can be used either to simplify and learn new exercises, or to make it more difficult and create resistance during exercises such as push-ups or chin-ups. GORNATION's double-layer Resistance Bands also called pull-up bands prevent fast tearing and can be purchased individually or in a set with door anchor for training at home.
A small tool for home training: door anchor
With this small gadget the variety of exercises can be increased extremely during training at home, because the door anchor allows therabands, resistance bands, rings or slingtrainers to be attached to the door. It is simply clamped into the door within seconds. Important when choosing the door anchor is a) the choice of the right door anchor, because cheap door anchors often wear out quickly in the loop, which is why the GORNATION door anchor has padding there and b) the right number of door anchors, because e.g. for ring training two door anchors make sense. With only two door anchors you can flexibly arrange your training at home without the gym and extend it with some exercises.

The sweater for enthusiastic athletes: Calisthenics Hoodie Black
As mentioned above, the Calisthenics Shirt is popular with bodyweight exercise enthusiasts, the Calisthenics Hoodie is at least as popular.

The perfect push-up grips: Premium Parallel ACTIVE
These grips will bring the glow to any athlete's eyes, as they are versatile and can be used at home or on the go for push-ups, handstands, planche, L-Sit and many other beginner and advanced exercises.

Whether at home on door anchors, hooks on the ceiling or on the chin-up bar OR outside on a soccer goal or in the training park, the rings allow a variety of exercises for chest, shoulder, back and abdomen. The all-rounder tool for calisthenics athletes.

There is a lot of helpful equipment and clothing available to help every Calisthenics athlete. The recommendations of athletes who have been doing sports for years are very clear here:
- Elbow Sleeves as a gift under 30€, everyone benefits from Elbow Sleeves through the pleasant support. It's something that many athletes don't have themselves, but never again without training, once they have tried the bandages.
