Need Reccomendations

I am looking for any insight about where I can go to get the majority of my equipment at the best prices. We are hoping to outfit our garage and as time progresses (and god willing) start a small box. I already built squat racks, dip station, pull up rigs and a plan on doing plyo boxes and a few other things that have been suggested elsewhere here. Right now we are looking to purchase rings, kb's, bumpers or rubber encased plates, mats, pull up bands, and some of the other things that I cant do myself...I was hoping that we could get most of our supplies from one vendor but we are definitely open to going multiple places...any suggestions??

Rogue Fitness is the way to go. They have just about everything, their pricing is very competitive and I cannot say enough about Bill at Rogue and their outstanding customer service. If I need it and Rogue sells it, that is where I buy it.

I completely agree. With the exception of my cage (which I already had) I have bought everything from Rogue, and have never had a problem.

Re: Need Reccomendations

I would just pick 1 vendor and stick with it. its not worth the hassle and the time to deal with multiple vendors especially when something goes wrong to save few bucks. I would also pick a vendor that can ship everything from their warehouse at once if possible. There's nothing worse than ordering everything you need at once but than they all come at different times because its being drop shipped by the manufacture and not the vendor/reseller you bought it from.

Re: Need Reccomendations

all great advice. But you can make your own rings for 5$. I did and they work fine. Search the forum for instructions.

I think this is fine for a personal garage gym... not so much for an affiliate. Be professional, get professional equipment IMO. Rogue rings will pretty much last a lifetime. If it lasts 20 years, that's like $4 per year.

And I have to echo everyone's praise for Rogue. I've only bought one thing. But, I had a minor problem with it, and it was instantly taken care of, as in, within 24 hours. Amazing customer support.
