When you prefer USA made products, you support American manufacturing, American jobs, and American values. This improve the country’s long term economic independence, lowering our reliance on countries who do not share our values or laws.

Some workout equipment is almost always made in the US, such as wooden plyo boxes and wooden gymnastics rings. Others like manila battle ropes might be twisted or cut in the US, but the manila fibers come from overseas.

The reality is the raw materials, refinement, preparation and assembly sometimes involves multiple countries in some way or another.

The FTC regulates the term “made in the USA”, defining it as a product where all significant parts are of US origin and all significant processing is done in the US. There are grey areas, but that’s what they look for.

Note that we’re limiting this list mainly to strength equipment and Crossfit equipment
