Re: Nike Metcon

I've had my Metcons since the release; approximately 2 weeks at the time of this message. I'm happy with the fit and styling. Durability is a question mark, however. The upper, in particular the...

Re: Need a new Barbell

Caveat with the AF Bar: unlike the Pendlay HD / NB, Rogue 1.0/2.0, and Ohio bars, the AF Bar's knurling does not go all the way to the collars, leaving about an inch or more of no knurling. If you...

Re: AbMat Burn Guard Testing for Again Faster

I'll test one, too. Regular for me. And I'll review it 2x: once out of the box and again after a month of use.

Re: Rev X Jump Rope Testing for Again Faster

Here is my review after using the Rev X rope for one month.

Re: Rev X Jump Rope Testing for Again Faster

As promised, here are my out-of-the-box impressions of the Rev X rope.

The rope was ordered on the 14th and delivered to me in Wisconsin on the 16th. No shipping issues at all.

I ordered green. ...

Re: Rev X Jump Rope Testing for Again Faster

I'll review one of the ropes. I'll take one in green, please. And I'm no Cheetah, either. And I'll review it 2x

Re: Tough Mudder, What's the deal !!??!!

You should be fine. There were perhaps two to two and a half miles between some of the obstacles on the course (ours was on a golf course and ski hill). If you want to eliminate any butterflies, try...

Re: Tough Mudder, What's the deal !!??!!

Stuart's comments are right on. Wear a pair of shoes that you are about to retire and leave them behind. Goggles fly off and gloves were worthless in my opinion. Going with a team is the way to...

Re: Upgrade from PM2 to PM3?

I've had a PM2 for years. It has all the functionality I've ever needed. Even when my last PM2 died, I replaced it with a refurbished model. I suggest that you inspect the battery from time to...

Re: San Francisco area boxes...

Glen:

I stayed about two doors down from your hotel on a business trip this fall. I went to LaLane Fitness and to Crossfit San Francisco. The members and coaches at both boxes were very welcoming...

Re: Las Vegas Options...

If CFME isn't an option, you may wish to check out Kaizen Crossfit. I spent a week working out with them last year and I was very impressed with the coaching and the community.

Re: Paleo Snacks

I didn't see it posted before, so I'll chime in: olives canned in salt water only. Try Whole Foods' 365 brand. If someone can suggest another brand with the same two ingredients, and nothing else,...
