At the 2022 NOBULL CrossFit Games August 3-7, 2022 in Madison, WI, reigning five-time Fittest Woman on Earth®, Tia-Clair Toomey, will attempt to become the greatest individual CrossFit athlete of all time. In preparation for a potential sixth consecutive Games title, Toomey is training with her trainer and husband, Shane Orr, founder of PRVN Fitness, who also trains Brooke Wells and Alec Smith.
While Toomey and Orr spend a lot of time on the outdoor track or in a training facility, they also have access to a gym garage in Nashville, TN. On July 12, 2022, Toomey took to her YouTube channel to share which equipment earns in “The Fittest Women’s Gym in the Garage”. Watch the tour in the video below:

Tia-Clair Toomey’s Garage Gym
The first piece of equipment in the spacious garage is a rack for medicine balls, wall balls and dumbbells. As this space is primarily used for content showcasing PRVN programming, the available weights are appropriate for those exercises. Toomey notes that there isn’t a pair of 70-pound dumbbells in the space because that’s not the purpose of the space. Likewise, wall balls appear to have a maximum weight of 20 pounds.
Next to those mounts is the Rogue Echo Bike. Toomey appreciates the bike for its sturdiness and as a way to get in some cardio for those who can’t run because of joint problems or the like. Next to the bike is wall-mounted equipment that equips Toomey with a pull-up bar, toes to the bar, deadlifts and more. Plus, it has J-hooks to support the barbell so Toomey can perform front squats, back squats and overhead presses.
In addition to the platform, there ARE various weight plates, a plyo box and other equipment identical to the first. Barbell collars are magnetic and connect to the beams – an efficient innovation that keeps the space clutter-free.
Along the back wall of the gym is a Concept 2 BikeErg and another Rogue Echo Bike. Along the floor next to those bikes are a pair of kettlebells. On the wall above the kettlebells are plates with fractional weights on mounted wood. The main piece along the same wall is a Rogue Monster Lite rack that folds into the wall for more usable space.
In the corner are a pair of weights and a rowing machine that can stand upright, again for space efficiency. Next to the ergometer is a staircase, but in front of it is a large blackboard for writing programs for any training.

2022 CrossFit Games
Toomey placed first in the 2022 CrossFit Quarterfinals and won the 2022 Torian Pro Semifinals. Her results so far this season suggest she will remain at the top of the field until the 2022 Games and achieve a sixth consecutive Games championship. We’ll see if any of the other elite women can keep her atop the podium, but if history is any indication, it will be a Herculean task to strip Toomey of her Fittest on Earth moniker.
