Just at Sports Authority

Hello all! Just wanted to throw this out there for people who are not the online ordering type. I was just at the Sports Authority here by my work on lunch and saw they had a mini section of Rage equipment. Not sure how the pricing stacked up against the online version but you do not have to wait for the product (always a plus for me personally). They had climbing rope, wall balls, slam balls (i prefer the DIY version) kettlebells, speed ropes, mobility bands, and assistance pullup bands (i think that's it). Just in case anyone ever wanted to go to a store and get it and go thought I would share the information.
PS I do NOT work there nor do I get paid to advertise this is a friendly heads up.

Sport Chalet has a section that has a ton of CrossFit gear, but it's a crappy off brand. Nothing I would seriously consider buying. They even have an abmat rip off.

I went to my local sports authority and saw all the rage stuff. Wasn't too impressed with the prices or quality. Wanted something like $3/lb for bumpers! lol i guess when you add in the big boys store front, prices go up, which makes sense. I didn't look at the other gear, maybe the smaller stuff is cheaper like bands

Keep in mind Sports Authority has coupons all the time for 20% off, that may make things more reasonably priced. Also singing up for their email list gives you a $10 off $50 coupon.
