Tactical Athlete Pull-up System

The most stable.  The sturdiest.  The strongest portable pull-up bar on the market today.  Made from 11 and 14 gauge U.S. steel right here in the USA, the Tactical Athlete Pull-up System is the superior quality, adjustable, and fully portable pull-up bar that was created specifically to meet the demanding needs of military and law enforcement training regimens.  Jeff Martone, inventor of the TAPS, saw that this need also applied to anyone who was serious about fitness, and decided to make the TAPS unit available to the public.  Since then, gym owners, personal trainers, athletes, mixed martial artists, and all variety of fitness enthusiasts have enjoyed the TAPS.  And don’t worry about weight limits.  We have hung 688 lbs. from the TAPS and it showed NO signs of straining or bending.  And our engineer tells us it can handle well over that!

“In Russia I used to take good pullup bars for granted: tall enough to hang without bending my knees; sturdy and stable to trust with weighted pullups; unencumbered with dipping bars and other hardware that make muscle-outs, hip pullovers, kips, and many other powerful exercises impossible to perform. To my great surprise, about the only place I could find this kind of a pullup bar in the US was a Marine base. Not any more. Enter Jeff Martone’s T.A.P.S. rig. It is a must for anyone seeking off the charts pullup strength.” -Pavel Tsatsouline

T.A.P.S. (Tactical Athlete Pullup System)
This is a fantastic product!! I found that it was easy to put together and made of very high quality metal. Unlike the crap you buy in various sport stores in the mall this is something that won’t end up in your garbage pile in two weeks. I like the bar itself. Too often you get pullup bars with unneccessary bends in it, or its too small or it has foam wrap around it (what the hell is that about!!) Anyway this has none of those things. Just a nice, slightly thick grip, great surface and strong contruction. The unit handles well when someone has weight strapped around their waist. Great for military and law enforcement. Again a great product. –Kurt V.

” Thank you for all the extra effort to ship the TAPS unit to the U.K.   It is without a doubt THE best pull-up bar on the market – bar none.   I will recommend this to anyone who wants a piece of equipment that will last for years to come.   Your DVD is great also!   I’ve started doing some of the exercises and find them enjoyable and challenging.   I will be buying more products from you and wish you all the best in the future!” – Andrew Platt, U.K.

“I accidentally noticed my wife ordered a TAPS unit for me!   It will be my graduation gift, I am sure.   Thus, I guess I convinced her of its utility and necessity for getting back into shape!   Your help and wisdom helped me educate myself and her.   Thank you.” – G. Ortiz, CA

“The TAPS bar is phenomenal!” – Rob Deacon, MN

“The T.A.P.S. bar itself, and the TAPS DVD, are really rocketing my strength through the roof.   Additionally, I’ve added spinal decompressions hangs to stretching sessions.   Between the pull-ups and stretching, my back has never felt stronger or healthier.”– Brian Losabia, TX
