What equipment do you need?

Question:

What equipment would you buy if it was cheaper?

What equipment do you think cost more then it really should?

What equipment can you not find or think they should make?

It depends on where you buy it. Crossfitters are pretty cheap, so the items people typically recommend on these boards are priced reasonably. Also, kettle bells.

A place where you can raise or lower the gravity.

I agree and I will add in there barbells and bumper plates. We are going to take a huge hit soon once we have to buy these items. My business partner got really luck with his C2 purchases off CL. He bought one almost new C2 off a lady who only bought it to row the distance between L.A and Catalina Island. The other two were just cheap on CL. We bought the rest of our equipment from a local CF that closed down which netted us some decent equipment.

Not so much of they do not make it, but not readily available.

On a side note, I think one of the few expensive items that is worth the price is the C2, only because mine is 20-something years old and still going strong. Yes it is the same price as a cheap Indian car, but way more reliable.
