Gift from Heaven

So ive been wanting a power sled for a while and never could come up with the money to buy it. After leaving rugby practice im on the phone talking to a friend about practice and waiting for my gf to pick me up to go get some food. I walk past the dumpster behind my campus rec....and what do i see sitting in the garbage.....http://www.pureathlete.com/assets/images/sled02.jpg ....something like that. Im like NOOOOOO WAY, and i see a guy behind the rec building and im like ok it must be this guys, he just set it here, so my gf picks me up, we go eat, and come back home...bout 2 hours go by. I tell my room mate who also does CF what i saw and hes says well lets go back and see if its still there, if it was somebodies they would have picked it up by now. So we go back up, and it was still there....and now...it is in MY garage! Cf home gym one more step closer to being completed!...THANK YOU GOD!

Re: Gift from Heaven

I had a simliar thing happen to me today.

A coworker was telling me that people are looking for stuff on craiglist and I have a garage full of junk to get rid of so I was checking it out to see if I could help anyone out.

No one seemed to be looking for what I have so i figured i would check out the free stuff section.

The first thing I see is a dumbell rack. I call the guy up and he says he just posted it on there about 2 minutes bfore I called and he lives about a mile from my house.

15 minutes later I have a place for my dumbbells. What luck.

Good for you, I hope you enjoy the sled.

Re: Gift from Heaven

I have used a sled that looks exactly like that.

They are such an amazing workout. Have fun?
