Re: garage gym store bumpers, good?

GG bumpers are great, we've got a couple of sets at CF Central London. No problems so far. They are less wide than Hi Temps, so you can get more weight on the bar. Our strong lads can't get more than...

Re: CFLA's Biz Seminar ("at home version")

Re: Should I Go to a CrossFit Gym?
