All opinions are welcomed!!! Thanks

Search is your friend in this case, many scores of opinions on the topic. Also see the FAQs for a link to the Garage Gym with more recommendations there.

Personally, I got mine from therubberman.com (Kraigburgs) and have nothing but nice things to say about the bumpers and Alf.

Andre,
There are plenty of threads out there if you use the search function. Here's a good link (w/f safe) which is pretty comprehensive on equipment to include bumpers.

Many people will agree with Brett's suggestion about buying bumpes from [url=http://www.therubberman.com]www.therubberman.com[/url] (link is safe/safe), I'm one of them.

Make sure you ask for the CrossFit discount.

I would check out the Wichita Falls Weightlifting Club for their specials on weight sets/bumpers.

It looks to me like they have great deals no matter what level you are looking for. They even have a crossfit special.

Here is the w/f/s link: [url=http://store.wfwclub.com/weightsets.html]http://store.wfwclub.com/weightsets.html[/url]

They have great customer service... I bought weightlifting shoes from them and the person I spoke to on the phone helped with all my questions.

I am broke as a joke right now, but when I get some money together I will probably buy from them.

How about a place in Canada or better yet Toronto...I find the shipping costs high.

Angel Andre Liu Orozco 04-30-2007 10:03 AM

i guess Wichita Falls is the cheapest for all levels!hummm...

Should I go with Lbs or Kg?

Tom Fetter 04-30-2007 11:37 AM

Shipping costs to Canada are a pain, to be sure. But in the checking 'round that I did, I found that both the York representative who inhabits the board here, and Wichita are able to get decent shipping costs. Or at least, more decent than I'd expected.

Angel,

I would buy KGs because I like to compare myself to what international lifters are doing. Which is kinda funny... because I cannot left nearly what they can.

Its really up to you. Lb's may be cheaper but I believe WF Weightlifting gives you a good price on kilos.


Nathan Chaszeyka 04-30-2007 12:42 PM

I just ordered the Crossfit set from WF today. It's an awesome deal. Lb or Kg are the same price. I got Lb., because it's what I'm accustomed to and it will be easier for friends to use when I try to introduce them to Crossfit.
