stand alone pull up bars

We recently started a box upstairs of a personal training studio. I believe we have a good start on what is needed. The big thing we are lacking is a good solid pull up bar system. I'm trying to keep from going with a wall mounted system. Is there system that is large enough to hang rings from and sturdy enough to handle a 200lb + man doing kipping pullups? Oh and of course it should be as eceonical as possible. Any suggestions would be awesome!

Re: stand alone pull up bars

A lot of your decision depends on how many people you need to be able to train at one time and how much space you have. This system by Rogue can handle 12 people at once. (w/f/s)
It is rock solid and requires 6' by 12'. I'm sure they could fabricate something smaller scale if you emailed them.
Sorinex also does custom pull up units, but they are much more expensive. (w/f/s)
Of course you could always contact a local welder and have him/her fabricate something on the spot. This may be the most economical solution plus you have total freedom on the design.
hope this helps

This (WFS), if you've got fairly solid rafters to attach it too. Doesn't waste any floor space either.

Re: stand alone pull up bars

The Sorinex Base Fit System can range in size from 4'x4' to as large as you like. It's customizable for each customer, so size, price and application varies. Our customers seem to be very happy with the units, and many of them have commented how it was MUCH more expensive having a custom unit made for them by a local welder, when it was all said and done, and they wished they would have gone with the Basefit on the front end.

The component parts can be configured to do multiple variations of chin / pull ups, dips, plate storage, step for getting up to chin bar, squats, benches, pulls, and even can have 12' uprights for ring or rope work. Let us know how we can help you.
