With the Insanity workout program, Shaun T proved to the world that you do not need workout equipment to get extreme results. And with the introduction of Focus T25, he has clearly demonstrated you do not need to devote a lot of your time either to get the results you want.
The amount of equipment for Focus T25 is minimal. You really only need resistance bands or dumbbells and a mat.
The miniMAT is a piece of equipment that the program recommends. If you are exercising on a hard surface, a miniMAT from Beachbody or other type of yoga mat will really make your workouts much more comfortable.
A chin-up bar is another optional piece of equipment, but it is only used in two of the Gamma phase workouts shown below.

Where to Buy Equipment for Focus T25
The goods news is that the T25 base kit (Alpha and Beta phases) comes with a B-lines resistance band, so there is no equipment you need to buy separately if you don’t own a set of dumbbells. A good beginner dumbbell set of 3 to 8 lbs should be a good starting point. And, when you need to increase the weight try holding two dumbbells at once to increase the intensity.
The T25 Deluxe package (Alpha, Beta, and Gamma phases) comes with two b-lines resistance bands (lighter and heavier resistances) as well as the miniMAT. So, if you’re a one-stop shopper, this is definitely the package for you. Plus, it comes with the Gamma phase – my favorite :)
