How to Buy Used Crossfit Equipment For Sale

Over the past two years we have slowly been putting together all of the equipment for our CrossFit garage gym. Some of the gear we purchased new and some of the gear we bought used.  If you keep your eye peeled you can find and buy affordable inexpensive used CrossFit equipment – if you know where to look.

We put the word out to friends and were surprised as a few donated gear they wanted to get rid off. Checked on Craigslist and found a set of dumbells. Much of the gear we found at local garage sales and at a local used sporting goods store was affordable.

Also got real lucky as a local gym was upgrading their gear and barbells and wanted to give away two old barbells. We carted them off in the old truck – asap.

A few things to look for in buying used CrossFit gear.

For dumbells it is ok to have a little bit of rust as you can sandpaper that off and paint over with some primer grey paint. Check the edges of where the dumbell bar and the weight meet to make sure it is not cracked.

We bought a used Schwinn AirDyne at a local used sporting goods store. It is ok to have a few dings but make sure the frame is not cracked as a new one will cost you about $250 without installation. I would not buy an AirDyne unless I sit on it and give it a good spin. This will tell you if the main fan is spinning right and if the chain and drive shaft are straight and working. has the Schwinn AD6 Airdyne Bike at a reasonable price of $649

Believe it or not the local GoodWill or Salvation Army is also a good resource to find old dumbells and assorted weight bumper plates.  Every few weeks I take a trip through there to check it out and see if I can find anything good.
