Hey folks I know this is so going to get me into trouble here but this is how I'm going to pay for a University Education.

My company Mission Specific Industries a new startup, is now the sole Canadian supplier for Hi-Temp weights a manufacturer of collegiate style bumpers. I am also the newest retailer for Chapman Power Systems. I will begin selling Michael Chapman's bars and bumpers shortly (within the next few days). Though my intention is to import these into Canada because of the severe lack of availability of quality products in the country, I will be offering CrossFitters globaly the opportunity to buy whatever I'm offering at significant discounts.

I know this is so going into pukies bucket and I understand. I'm risking looking like a profiteering bastard by posting this on the CF forum, but I am in the middle of leaving a successful career in order to teach CrossFit full time.


The Hi-Temp Bumpers are already available at www.mission-specific.com in the kitshop area. And the others will soon be available.

Pierre,
I was stunned by the great deals on the Hi-Temp Bumper packages. I recently bought some metric bumpers and I really don't want to mix metric and pounds. All I saw were pounds in your offerings. Any chance you might offer metric packages?

Chris,
I will be attending Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario. It has one of the top Human Kinetics programs in the country.

Dave,
I will soon be offering Metric and Imperial weights from Chapman Power Systems. I'm still working on the pricing agreement but odds are the Chapman weights will be somewhat more expensive then the Hi-Temp weights as they are geared more towards a facility with proper lifting platforms and are a bit nicer to look at. While the Hi-Temp weights are designed to be used on less than perfect surfaces like concrete or outdoors.

Pierre,

That will be an improvement from living on a base in the mid prairies.Though never been to Shiloh, spent time in Wainwright.

You got the IMP's stockpiled to cut food costs?
