I’ve been doing Crossfit® workouts for four years, as of the date I’m writing this. I went to an affiliate for three years. I wouldn’t change that for anything. I learned how Crossfit workouts are conducted and I got the benefit of competition to increase my intensity.
However, after my third year, I crunched the numbers and decided to move into my garage. I was spending $1,500/yr on a Crossfit membership. I figured I could outfit my garage with everything an affiliate would have for under $4,000. So my ROI was under three years… no brainer. I’m committed to Crossfit for life, so in July of 2018 I got shopping!
Here’s what I purchased to get my box started.
And guess what??? I can still park both of my cars in my garage!!
I’ll be adding a GHD, a stationary bike, a weight sled, and some sandbags later, but the list above is what I needed to do 95% of every WOD I could think of.
I did it for under $4,000.
I did a lot of research. I did not just go with all Rogue stuff (even though that would have been awesome!) … that would have sent me over $10,000. I shopped smartly, but with quality in mind. I didn’t just want the cheapest stuff. I wanted quality for a good price.
Since I wrote this post, I’ve added some gear. I’m training up to 3 people at a time now, so I needed to get more gear to accommodate more people.
