I work in a rehab center with a studio specifically designed for personal training. However there is no pull up bar there and the owner doesnt have room for a station nor does he want any bolts to put in the door for a pull up bar. Was wondering what you guys think of this bar and how effective it would be??

Im pretty sure you just place it on the thresh hold of the door frame.... Any thoughts?

I had the opportunity to use one of Jon's AF bars at Jerry Hill's new Crossfit affiliate yesterday. Really nice I must say I definitely put it on my wish list.

Charles,

You defintely can't kip on those doorway models. Is the owner of your studio agreeable to any mods? If so, post some pics of the place. There are a lot of creative folks on the board.

Charles,

Not sure how the setup is at your place but right now Jerry Hill is working his Crossfit Affiliate out of a BJJ place and what he did to hang the pullup bars and rings was take away some of the ceiling tiles and strap the bar to the beams overhead. Just a thought.

Allen,

Glad you like the Bar! Jerry was my first CF customer, and he's doing his best to single-handedly keep me in business!

Chas,

Check this out:

http://www.crossfit.com/discus/messages/26/37490.jpg

It looks like Jerry removed some acoustical ceiling tiles to secure the bar to the structure above.

Just for the heck of it, I took some out of the ceiling at work to see what's up there--all kinds of stuff to hang an AF Bar off of.

As I've mentioned, these are bomb-proof pull-up Bars for very short money: $75, delivered anywhere in the lower 48.

If your boss can't go for that, you might need a new boss. :bangin:

Best,

Jon
