What's in Tia-Clair Toomey's Gym Bag…er…Toolbox? – BarBend

The 2022 NOBULL CrossFit Games are scheduled for Aug. 3-7, 2022, in Madison, WI. The headline going into the grandest CrossFit competition of the year is reigning five-time Fittest Woman on Earth® Tia-Clair Toomey will not only be going for her sixth consecutive Games title, but also to make history as the all-time winningest Individual CrossFitter.
Currently, Toomey is tied with five-time Fittest Man on Earth® Mat Fraser, who retired from competitive CrossFit to start HWPO programming. He currently coaches some of CrossFit’s top stars, including 2021 CrossFit Rookie of the Year Mal O’Brien.
On July 25, 2022, Toomey’s husband and coach, Shane Orr took their YouTube channel to share everything in Toomey’s gym bag. Except, it’s not a gym bag at all. Toomey has so many training accessories that they converted a giant rolling toolbox to fit all her effects. Check it out below:

The top of the toolbox is a mail drop-off point for the arrival of supplements and additional gear that will find its way into the toolbox it sits atop. Per Orr, the highest drawer of the toolbox contains “day-to-day essentials,” which include sweatbands, a stopwatch, nail clippers, heel raisers, a road clock, a tape measure, Fat Gripz, pens, and scuba wear for ice baths.
Drawer two is an organized clutter of hand care accessories — grips and tapes. Drawer three is a double-under aficionado’s fantasy of drag, weighted, and standard jump ropes. Drawer four is for the mobility fanatics. There are resistance bands, activation bands, yoga mats, a foam roller, massage balls, and almost any trinket imaginable for rolling the muscles out.

Drawer five is the designated shoe drawer. There isn’t as much organization here as weightlifting shoes, flip-flops, running sneakers, cross trainers, and other footwear are jumbled together. Drawer six is on top of the left column of the toolbox, and Orr deemed it the “activation drawer.”
You got a band, you got a gym.
Drawer seven appeared to be a what’s what of knee sleeves, elbow sleeves, and sleeves for rope climbs. Drawer eight is the lifting belt draw. The ninth and final drawer is everything that didn’t fit in any of the other drawers — a camera tripod, disinfectant, and measuring wheel. Next to the toolbox is a large bucket of chalk for Toomey’s hands during barbell training.
Toomey won the 2022 CrossFit Quarterfinals and the 2022 Torian Pro Semifinal. Her performance thus far in the 2022 season is suggestive that it will be challenging for any of the other competitors in Madison to claim the throne for themselves. We’ll see if Toomey cements her place as the all-time winningest CrossFit Individual when the Games conclude on Aug. 7, 2022.
