Re: New to crossfit... Cost?

$150-200 or so is what I'd expect to pay at an affiliate run by a good coach outside of a major city. Maybe a bit less in areas with a lower cost of living if you get lucky.

There is often a you-get-what-you-pay-for, but not always. I'd expect a LOT for $350/month anywhere outside of NYC/LA. How expensive is it to live in Tyler, Texas?
I pay $225 a month unlimited, but it's run by Mike Rutherford and he's extremely good. He was one of the first affiliates in the county and takes it very seriously. He's one of the best coaches I've ever had from a fitness standpoint. It's all about what you want though.

Re: New to crossfit... Cost?

I bought a nearly fully outfitted garage gym for 10 months worth of your fees. $3500 got me:

Rogue R3
520 pounds of bumpers
B&R Bar
A pair of 30 lb Med Balls
Custom 130 pound Thai bag with mountings
2x 30 and 50 pound DBs
a few assistance bands
350+ sq.ft. of floor mats
200+ sq. ft. of MMA mats

Granted, I am probably learning some of the more advanced movements more slowly than if I had a dedicated trainer with me, but I am pretty certain I'll have it all down in less than 10 months.
