The $35,000 training center, provided by the Air Force Services Activity and manufactured in the United States, will be used for a pull-up competition. It will be situated on an extension of the oval track at Jarvis.

The metal container measures roughly 10 feet long by 8 feet wide by 8 feet tall. Its rigging consists of three squat racks, 12 pull-up stations, a 12-foot rope climbing tower, muscle-up bar and a flying chin bar that attach to the outside of the container in 90 minutes.

Other equipment includes a dip bar, grappler, jump platform, wall ball target, J-cups and safety squat attachments. Freestanding gear ranges from medicine balls and kettle bells to sandbags and lift bars.

All the fitness training equipment and external racks store neatly inside. The 7,360-pound galvanized container is fully deployable on military cargo aircraft.
