Re: Another happy Rogue Fitness customer

I don't post much on here, but earlier this year I ordered a Concept 2 from Rogue and it arrived well within a week. I thought price and delivery were great.

Granted I live only a couple hours...

Re: bumper plates site

Wright Rubber is also an excellent choice.

All the choices listed, frankly, are great options though.

Re: Buddy Lee vs. Rx Jump Rope

Just curious, isn't Buddy Lee considered part of the Crossfit community?

I recall seeing several videos where he was teaching various aspects of the jump rope to a class of 20-25 people a couple...

Re: This might be a stupid question... PART 2 My heaven...

John, it looks great. Nice job.

I wish I were near you...I'd be asking to train with you, if you had room for a slow moving 47 year old guy! :) PS I love hockey and your gym has a nice 'aura' about...

Re: A Tale of 3 High-End Olympic Weightlifting Bars

I don't think Robert's posted on here for a while. Hope he is still around, as he's a very interesting guy with a ton of passion for the iron game. On days I don't feel like I'm into training, just...

Re: First KB Purchase?

I should have added that the $20 shipping was for ONE kettlebell. Obviously this would be different if you ordered more or the destination was farther than mine was.

Phone - 417-882-3355
Fax - 417-616-7496

Re: First KB Purchase?

Got mine from Bert at Kettlebell King. Great price, great delivery and overall great service and I'd buy from him again in a heartbeat.

Re: Bumpers in the Sun....Bad??

I hear suntan lotion works pretty well. Try SPF 36 or higher.

Pat- cool, good to know about craigslist for FFO.

I'll check out Rogue also. Thanks.

Re: Chicagoland Bumpers $1.29/lbs

Pat- do you have to be local to 'deal' with FFO and get their best price, ala pickup in the Chicago area?
The reason I ask, I was working with an online rep the other day and the one I talked to...

Re: For Sale: Power Lift Combo Squat Rack

Can I ask why this thread hasn't been shut down? OP has 5 posts, all relating to the sale of equipment; doesn't this violate #17 of the site rules?

Re: Want to buy a bumper plate set, should I check any place other than Craigslist?

:yeahthat:

And when you do find them on cragislist once in a blue moon, the owner knows what he or she has, and wants nearly full retail on them anyway.

I'd say go with Wright Rubber. Service and...

Re: rower question

I do not have direct knowledge, but I'm considering both the water rower and the C2. From what I've read on here and elsewhere, the major failure point for the water rower is the water tank. At some...

Re: more k-bell questions

Before making a decision, check out Bert at Midwest Fitness. He's got a quality KB at a very attractive price. I know I bought one and was very impressed with price, quality and delivery from Bert...

Re: Kettlebell: Rogue vs Again Faster vs Midwest

Here is another vote for Bert at Midwest.
To me, the value received can't be beaten. I paid $69.50, delivered, for a 50 lb KB in late December. The kettlebell made it to my place ahead of schedule,...

Re: Kettlebells

I LOVE Rogue and will use them for just about everything else. I've got a C2 on my "acquire" list and when I do, it'll likely be from Rogue. That said, I couldn't pass up Bert's deals.

Re: Kettlebells

Ditto Shawn's comment above. I bought a 50 LB KB from Bert a few weeks ago, it came in well ahead of schedule and at $69.xx delivered and with excellent quality (Troy), it's been all I could have...
