Re: My shop gym

Re: My shop gym

The two smaller ones I got from a buddy. The bigger one i bought from Grainger. It cost me about 280.00 USD. It is way worth it , once it warms you up, you are good to go. Its 15000 btu of direct heat warming you not the air. It does take a 240 volt circuit. I have power in my shop but not gas.

Re: My shop gym

Awesome pics, looks great.

Tell me about that dip station. I want to put together something like that but am completely ignorant about the materials, hardware, specs, etc.

Re: My shop gym

The dip station is just 1 1/4 pipe sections threaded into pipe flanges on each end and a 90 degree coupling to connect them. I anchored them doen with some simple concrete anchors on the floor end and some big screws on the wall end. I found the big flanges on a job site and had one of my friends who is a plumber cut and thread the pipe for me. You probably could get away with 1" pipe. Home depot sells up to 1" around here and will cut and thread it for you.

Re: My shop gym

Nice setup Andrew. I'm glad to see you're still working out and now CrossFitting. If I remember right last time I saw you you were doing a lot of Oly lifting and on the fence about CF.

You should bring your crew over for a WOD sometime or one of our other events.

Let me know if I can ever be of any assistance with gear and/or coaching.

Sincerely,
Chris Brown
