BEST VALUE

BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK

Fringe Sport Gold Package

Fringe Sport Gold Package

The Fringe Sport Gold Package is, in my opinion, the best value package you can buy. At just north of $1500 you get basically everything that all of the other packages offer, plus more. You get 4 kettle bells, 270 lbs of weight and a bunch of other goodies. The only thing this package doesn't come with, is a squat rack, however only 2 of the other packages come with a squat rack and they are either much more expensive, or severely lack in the equipment that is included.

BEST OVERALL

BEST PACKAGE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE (REGARDLESS OF PRICE)

warrior crossfit package

Rogue Warrior Package

This was actually a pretty hard decision to make, and the Vulcan Deep One package came in a close 2nd. If you don't care about the rower that is included with the Warrior package, and would prefer a squat rack, I highly suggest going with the Deep One package. The Warrior package really does come with everything you could ever need to have a complete Crossfit home gym. With this package you will not be needing to replace or add anything in your garage gym for a LONG time, especially because the package is from Rogue, a company that is known for having extremely high quality products

MOST AFFORDABLE

GREAT CHOICE FOR THOSE ON A BUDGET

Bronze Package Breakdown

Fringe Bronze Package

The fringe Bronze package is a great beginners package and although it has a pretty small amount of weight included (160 lbs) it comes at a really great price just north of $600

The other option is the Rogue SoCal complete, which is about $130 more expensive than the Fringe Bronze package. The Rogue packages switches out the speed rope and slam ball for gym rings and a medicine ball. Other than that, the packages are essentially identical.


Below we have gone into detail about each of the top packages currently available

This package comes with the bare minimum and will be easy to build on. Definitely for beginners.

This is a great entry-level package that is ideal for those who have enough experience in CrossFit training to know that it is something they want to make a regular part of their life but who are still really just starting out their journey along this exciting fitness path.

Who is this for?

Those that have been training for a while and want to invest in a good quality CrossFit equipment package that doesn’t cost a fortune, this one could be just what you are looking for.​

What I think:

This is essentially the same package as the above, except with a couple of upgraded components. Instead of a budget barbell, you get the premium Rogue Ohio bar with dual knurl marks, manufactured from high quality 190KSI steel. The inexpensive but effective spring collars from the SoCal package are replaced by the Rogue HG collars, featuring a patented locking mechanism that ensures a secure hold. You also get two extra bumper plates – 35 pounders – providing you with a little more flexibility when moving through the weight range on each exercise that you perform with the bar.

Includes:

  • 230 lb Bumper Plate Set
  • Rogue Ohio Bar
  • Rogue HG collars
  • Wooden gym rings
  • Medicine Ball

This package is aimed at serious CrossFitters that want a serious gym. You will have everything you need to get in a diverse, total body workout whenever you want. Seriously, for everything you get here, this is a fantastic deal.

What I think:

The Alpha package contains everything that is included in the Charlie package plus the following: a 20-foot, 1.5-inch diameter climbing rope with an eyelet, made from durable manila hemp; a Rogue SR-3 speed rope, with 6-inch rotating handles; an Abmat for crunches and other abdominal exercises; 2 x 53lb kettlebells instead of 1 and 2 x 35lb kettlebells; and, finally, an extra 2 x 45lb bumper plates for your barbell.

Who is this for?

This package is for those who want a complete home gym. You will want for nothing with this set up. It literally has everything you would have at a standard Crossfit gym and more.

What I think:

This is definitely an expensive package, there's no doubt about that, but it does have basically everything you are going to need. The only thing that it is missing is a squat rack. You can, of course get this as an add on. The fact that it comes with a rower says to me that the creator of this package is a Crossfitter and knows how important that exercise is to overall fitness. I think it's a fantastic package if you can afford it.

  • 320 lb Bumper Plate Set
  • 2.5 / 5 lb Pair of Steel Plates

Who is this for?

This is a great beginners package at a great price point. It’s not the most comprehensive of CrossFit bundles on the market by a long stretch but it does include most of what you will need to get started.

What I think:

At this price point, it is a very attractive kit for those who are new to CrossFit training and coming from a reputable supplier such as this, you know that each component will durable and well made.

Includes:

  • 160 lb bumper plate set
  • Spring clip collars
  • 24 kg kettlebell (53 lbs)
  • Speed rope
  • 20 lb Slam ball
fringe sport silver package

Silver - Price: $1099

Click here to view package

Who is this for?

Mid range beginners. Those who have experience with all the Olympic lifts and Crossfit exercises. Great package for those who likely won't be passing 200 lbs on any of their lifts for a long time.

What I think:

At $1,099 it is still quite cheap as far as CrossFit home gym packages are concerned and is a good mid-range entry package for those who have been training for a few months. The weight is a bit low for a really experienced lifter, however, if your max won't be passing 200 lbs on any lift for a few months this is a fantastic package.

Includes:

  • 200 lb bumper plate set
  • Spring clip collars
  • 24 kg kettlebell (53 lbs)
  • 16 kg kettlebell (35 lbs)
  • Speed rope
  • 20 lb medicine ball
  • Gym Rings
  • Abdominal Mat
  • 3 sided plyo box
  • Stud Bar (for pull ups)
Fringe Sport Gold Package

Gold - Price: $1545

Who is this for?

Mid range to advanced. Really, anyone can use this package. It has everything, however, I wouldn't recommend purchasing this package unless you plan on using everything that is included.

What I think:

For $1,545 you expect quite a lot and this package does not disappoint. If you are interested in CrossFit gym packages that will serve you well both now and in the future, this one is well worth considering. With more bumper plates, more steel plates, more kettlebells, an upgrade to wooden gym rings, and last but not least, both a medicine and a slam ball, you will be able to make a lot of progress with this set, strength-wise, before you need to start looking around for any extra CrossFit home equipment.

Includes:

  • 270 lb bumper plate set
  • Super strap collars
  • 12 kg kettlebell (26.5 lb)
  • 16 kg kettlebell (35 lb)
  • 20 kg kettlebells (44 lb)
  • 24 kg kettlebells (53 lb)
  • Speed rope
  • 25 lb slam ball
  • 20 lb medicine ball
  • Gym Rings (wooden)
  • Abdominal Mat
  • 3 sided plyo box
  • Stud Bar (for pull ups)

One Deep Package Breakdown

One Deep Package – $2650

Click here to view package

Who is this for?

This.. package... is for anyone that wants an absolutely complete home gym. With this package, you will not be buying ANY additional equipment for years.

What I think:

This is one of the more comprehensive home gym equipment packages available at the moment. If you have the money, I can't stress it enough, this will be a fantastic investment for you. The weight included is massive, and the equipment included is incredibly diverse. Most of these components are from Vulcan’s own proprietary range, a highly respected name in the industry. Priced just under $2650, it’s not cheap but it will last you a life time.

Includes:

  • 340 lb bumper plate set
  • Weight Holder
  • Squat Stand
  • Glute Ham Developer
  • Olympic Barbell
  • Spring collars
  • Plyo Box
  • 12 kg kettlebell (26.5 lb)
  • 16 kg kettlebell (44 lb)
  • 24 kg kettlebell (53 lb)
  • Wooden gym rings
  • Medicine Ball (20 lb)
  • Slam ball (20 lb)
  • Speed Rope

Choosing the Right Package for Your Needs

Now that you have a much better idea of the standard CrossFit gear packages that are available from the leading names in the industry, you should find it easier to select one that fits your needs perfectly. Don’t worry too much about future proofing your home gym at this point; the very nature of strength training means that unless you spend an absolute fortune in the first place, you will inevitably need to upgrade certain components and add to your equipment at some point in time.

Everything You Need

If you would rather not have to look around for a separate rowing machine, you can go for something like the Warrior CrossFit package, one of the high-end Rogue CrossFit bundles that includes a Concept 2 Rower, with a PM5 performance monitor. Costing $2725, this package includes everything you can find in the Alpha package mentioned above, with an extra kettlebell, set of steel plates, rogue parallettes and a high quality American-made slam ball. Although it is undoubtedly one of the more expensive CrossFit package deals available and probably not something a beginner would be interested in, it could make a great gym for an intermediate or advanced CrossFitter who loves to train at home on a regular basis and enjoys discovering and challenging his or her physical limitations.

Conclusion

If you are just starting, one of the cheaper Rogue CrossFit equipment packages, the One Basic from Vulcan or the Bronze package from Fringe Sport represent excellent value for money. For intermediate Crossfitters, the Rogue Bravo package or Charlie package, One Deep from Vulcan or Silver package from Fringe Sport are all well worth considering. For heavy hitters who need a wall-mounted rig, one of the high-end packages mentioned above, with a Rogue W4 Garage Gym, would be an excellent choice.
