Can you spot the rings?

I have slowly been converting it to a crossfit friendly facility, one piece of equipment at a time.It started with just a picture of Pukie on the wall behind the rower, but now with my bumperweights arriving on thursday and rubber matting in friday im taking over(insert evil laugh)not really but, it now has its very own CrossFit Corner

Im trying to talk the boss into putting up a climbing rope and wall mounted pull-up bars next year. Wish me luck.

Minpro supplies, a local place up here. But you could probaly get it from any belt supply place that supplies the mining industry.

Its actually two pieces of mining conveyer belt, off cuts (new so all i needed to do was mop it down) and cost me $60 including delivery.

Its the same type of stuff they had, in addition to platforms when i went an did my OLY-lifting course in brisbane, except they had old coal mine belts.
So to answer your question yes, you can drop weight from over head onto it.If you want more details email me or check out your local yellow pages under Belting mftrs and supplies

Revolution is accomplished mostly easily when started from within.

Good going, Fiona.
