Body-Solid Studio Set – Best for Multi-Purpose Weight Lifting Garage Gym
Review: If you travel a lot, have a very tight budget or very little space, this simple TRX kit allows you to cross train using bodyweight and the pro package.

The one thing you don’t want to be stingy with is the barbell.
Consider Factors like:
The CrossFit Barbell
Since CrossFit incorporates different lifts, crossfitters usually want a multipurpose bar. This bar will have dual markings, a bare center, decent knurl, good whip and be paired with barbell collars that don’t ride or slide when dropped.
As I said earlier, most CrossFit Boxes use Bumper plates instead of standard weight plates so the barbell can be dropped when the athlete is lifting to failure, or trying to achieve a new PR.
I am not going to get into the ins and outs of barbells here, but if you want a detailed look at the differences between barbells I wrote about that here.
Bottom line: The Barbell is the most important factor to consider when choosing the best CrossFit package for your gym, and it is the centerpiece of the CrossFit home gym.
How do You Choose the Right CrossFit Package for You?
The best CrossFit packages run anywhere from the 500 to 600 dollar range for a quality barbell set to up to 3500 for a full gym setup with rower and all.
Whether you are working with an entire room, a corner of the garage, or you need to set up in your bedroom, there is a CrossFit Gym package that fits your lifestyle.
If you have the luxury of using a large room or the entire garage, you can set up with a full-size power rack and cardio machines like the air bike, rower, or even a treadmill.
If you have just a part of the garage, look for a folding rack you can stow away when you need to park the car in the garage.
If you are really limited with space, a simple barbell set, like the Rogue SoCal Econ set, might suffice.
What Equipment You Already Have
If you have been creating a CrossFit or Functional Fitness Gym for a while, a simple barbell upgrade may be the only thing you need.
The Rogue Delta CrossFit package Bar and Bumper plate set offers the Ohio bar, 160 lbs of bumper plates, Rogues Locking collars and a few CrossFit extras.
If you already have a barbell set, you can use your existing bumper plates with the 160 lbs included in this package and have quite a nice setup.
