Wow, first time I have seen that. I think the price is a little stiff considering they can get the origional ones so cheap, but talk about filling a void in the market!!

So I'm approved but have to pick another name. Kind of crappy but oh well. I wanted CrossFit Newburgh and figured if get it since 3 other local boxes have the town names, one of which opened about 2 months ago.

Hey Mike, I had the same thing happen to me: passed L1, essay approved, denied my name. But, it happened that I like the new name/image my second name has and I'm much happier with it!

So, have you heard from HQ yet about a new name? How are your classes going so far? Gaining any new members? Any thoughts/feedback on men's vs. women's bar weights?

I was coaching at an affiliate last year and when it closed I purchased all the gear to outfit my (soon-to-be) garage affiliate, so I didn't have much choice in the gear I got. The difference in weight never seemed to be a problem there, but the idea of a 35# bar seems like a great one for those not accustomed to the larger bars. Any thoughts?

Re: How does my list look? Affiliate for 6 people classes

its the diameter that makes more of a difference than the weight for a lot of women/people with smaller hands in my experience. My wife for instance can clean 30-40lbs more on a womens bar than on a mens simply due to her comfort with the grip(and how accustomed to them she is).

So Mike, what was your starting equipment?

I don't think you posted anything anywhere about your box opening since your last post on this topic, did you?

How is it going now, did you open?
