We added a 46' long pull-up bar with adjustable bars to raise and lower for our new CrossFit kids program. The sliding bars are also convenient for adding/replacing bands.

That is really cool Skip.

The bars pull all the way through?

I really like the colors, the kids are going to love it. It has a cool, chuck e cheese feel to it.

Keep up the good work.

Doug

Skip that looks awesome. Did you custom fabricate all of the pullup bars? If so, what are the costs of doing this?

Yes, we had them made by a friend. In the picture, it shows a gap in the middle, where there is no bar. That bar was added the next day, so it is continuous for 46'. We have 46' in the new side and 18' on the old side. Total cost is $400 for materials and $470 for labor. He sold us materials at wholesale.

We told him we wanted 3 sections to be adjustable so we could raise or lower them for kids and for jumping pull-ups. We wanted all bar sections to be removable to add/subtract bands as needed. We had the original bar in the 'old side' made the same way. I like be able to just hang the bands vs looping them over the bar.
