I recommend Fring Sports. It's about an hour north of San Antonio in Austin. Good prices. Super nice guys.

Ricardo,

We ship to Mexico quite often, and can help you with a full quote if you'd like. I know Mexico is generally underserved with equipment for CrossFit, and we're working hard at AF to change that.

You can email our staff at service@againfaster.com or call 617 460 5999. We'll get you squared away.

Best,

Jon Gilson
Owner, Again Faster

Hey Ricardo<
We(Team Academy CrossFit, Monrovia California) bought our equipment from www.extremetrainingequipment.com. Good stuff and they ship worldwide. We also bought a few things from Rogue.
Best to you

Re: Crossfit Gym in Monterrey, Mexico

How is Jon's reply above more acceptable than Alex Keller's contribution in this thread? Alex's reply got him banned, but I doubt seriously that Jon's reply will get him banned.

I'm not advocating that Jon be banned (that's the last thing I would want), but it sure appears that he is receiving preferential treatment and being held to a different standard than other smaller vendors.

I agree. You've got to draw the line somewhere. I don't think either one of them were doing anything wrong, only trying to help a fellow crossfitter.

Oh wow I didn't notice that they had been banned. That is unfortunate. They were productive members I felt.

Absolutely agree. I've seen MANY similar posts over the past year that I've been around but never seen anyone banned for it. Various peeps from fringe, rogue, something with hammer in it. The Kelley's posts didn't seem any different from many of those. I came looking for this thread to post exactly what Mark Wallace said. Glad I'm not the only one who thinks this is wrong.

By the way, I have never been a customer of or had any relationship with any of these vendors. Most likely If I purchase anything in the near future it will be from AF or rogue, but it sucks to see fringe banned for doing something that hasn't been a problem when others have done it.
