Re: Just an FYI...

Well, you have my email if you'd like to ask any questions.


I'm actually saying this to help clear John Walsh. Apparently, he's been getting a lot of **** lately with people accusing him of posing...

Just an FYI...

The guy posting on the *** message boards under my name is me - not John Walsh or anyone else. Any questions can be emailed to me at patrickhdonnelly@hotmail.com. That's all. Thanks.

Re: CrossFit Club

Sections 9.23 and 9.24 of the FAQ say differently.

If you wish to discuss the other half of your statement, that'd be better discussed over PM.

Legally? Well, do you have $3000 to spare?

Re: Colored Bumper Plates

I'm not sure why you would want colored bumpers, unless they're Werksan training/competition plates. You ought to be able to judge the plate weight by the thickness for standard bumpers, and the...

Re: Coach B, Jeff Martone, Josh Everett: Battling Ropes Training

I am immediately and justifiably wary of anything that is described as a "core blaster."

I don't give a **** who said it - those two words put the warning flags up.

Re: Insurance Issue

Well, what if it wasn't? For example, if you were to use plywood gymnastics rings of your own creation (a really beautiful and sturdy piece of equipment, if made right), and the triglide slip buckle...

Re: Insurance Issue

Omitting that sort of stuff sounds just as dangerous as writing it down. If the company doesn't allow homemade equipment, then wouldn't knowingly omitting the fact that you use homemade equipment be...

I think MS Paint is the one you're looking for.

Re: DIY Bar Holder

Funny. I heard the exact same thing earlier this morning at Potomac CrossFit while at a USAW coaching certification. Do you have a link to that post?


I once left my Pendlay Economy bar in storage...

Dan, that topic had already been thoroughly discussed and answered by another staff member, in this very thread.

Re: DIY Bar Holder

I like the plans posted by Paul Findley a while back. The construction is very precise and rock solid. I would have preferred some sort of along-the-wall storage, like you have, but I couldn't...

Re: Questions Regarding LLC's, Domain Names, Zoning, Certs, Insurance, Etc.

I forgot to mention that another home just down the street popped up as a "health club" on Google Maps when I ran a search for "gym." I'm not sure what's up with that. I went over there tonight when...

Re: MiR Workout Plate Vest

I'd have to give it a very solid thumbs down for any CrossFit activity. If all you want to do are weighted walks/stair climbs, and are simply looking for some more comfort, this is your vest......

Re: Weighted vest question

Dan, like Henry said, a weight vest is one of those "icing on the cake" items. Just be honest with yourself about how much you plan to use it, and then you'll know if you need one just yet. You...

Re: Midline Stabilizarion Cert w/ Kelly Starrett

In all honesty, "seminar" would be a much more accurate word for many of the offered "certifications." Unfortunately, it sounds cooler to say that you're certified in something rather than to say...

Re: CrossFit Outdoors. Equipment

One could think that it would be fairly easy to come up with a list of outdoor-friendly equipment, and if not, there have been plenty of similar topics to look to for inspiration. Even then, the...

Re: hi temp bumpers with metal sticking out!

I, for one, have never experienced this problem, and I have used my 210lb Hi-Temp set extensively over the past year and a half.

Re: For all ISSA trainers or those looking for PT cert

This is just the internet. It's pretty much a world-wide thing, and you can be sure that somewhere in our planet's 6.5 billion people, one of them isn't going to like CrossFit. Don't...

Leo,

You'll love this one; you might have seen it before on the P-Menu boards though. Safe for work, family, and all that jazz.
