From the Bileven blog we tell you what elements you need to turn your home into a mini box. And if you are thinking of setting up a crossfit rack at home, read these tips.
What is a crossfit rack
Surely you have ever thought about it, even more so in the wake of the covid pandemic. Installing a crossfit rack at home or in the garage is a fantastic option to be able to train on your own, with all the comforts and at the time of day that you prefer.
In the world of crossfit, or fitness and bodybuilding in general, the rack is the metallic structure built with metallic materials. This frame allows the execution of a large number of exercises and functionalities, thanks to the layout and shape of which it is available. Rack is a globalized concept, which in Spanish we could translate as a bodybuilding cage or a power cage.
Therefore, if you have always wanted to set up your own training space in your home, and have wondered what you need to achieve it, we will quickly tell you what you need to know about one of the essential elements to achieve it: the crossfit rack .
What is the price of a rack
Of course, the first thing to consider is the budget you have, since a crossfit rack is not usually cheap. Therefore, setting up a gym at home, in an economical way, must be done progressively. The logical and most recommended thing is to go little by little, unless you have enough money to assemble it quickly.
It is essential to invest in good quality products, which, after all, will be more durable, safe and will satisfy your needs effectively. This does not imply betting on the most expensive, but simply investing in a product that is worthwhile, since it will serve better and for longer. The quality of the materials, or having an expert who knows the subject, if you need one to set up a larger home gym, are essential aspects.
If you already practice crossfit, you will know that there are a series of essential elements to be able to perform various exercises: dumbbells, bars, kettlebells or kettlebells... and, of course, a structure, the rack.
The average price of the crossfit rack usually ranges between 600 and 700 euros in specialized sports stores. However, Bileven offers you crossfit racks with the cheapest and most competitive prices on the market.
Rack Bileven: two rack options at the best price
Among the crossfit rack options that Bileven offers, you can find two custom-made structures, designed by our team of engineers and at factory prices. These are:
- Crossfit Power I Rack: This model has a horizontal bar that connects both vertical supports, which allows you to perform exercises such as the chin-up or pull up.
- Crossfit Squat Rack: uniform steel structure, ideal for performing squats or squats.
Benefits of having a rack at home
It is important to make it clear that we do not encourage you to stop going to the usual box or training center. Training accompanied by friends and colleagues makes you and others better, and it is very important both to be able to perform at the highest level and to learn from others.
However, having a rack at home has attractive benefits:
- Total availability, because you can train at the time you want, and for as long as you want.
- Variety of exercises to perform, since you can add basic ones such as barbell squats or pull-ups.
- Maximum comfort: your rack, your rules.
What is a crossfit rack for? How to install it at home
The rack or structure will be used to practice a wide range of strength exercises, and if it has a horizontal bar, you can even do pull-ups. In addition, it will also help you to practice weightlifting exercises.
If you have a comfortable budget, you can get a power rack, but a house with little space will not offer many alternatives.
However, brands like Bileven adapt to the needs of each client, designing and building each cage to measure. In addition, our brand offers this alternative not only for individuals, but also for crossfit boxes that need their first racks, or expand the ones they already have in their facilities.
