Everyone knows that Rogue Fitness makes some damn fine racks!
Their RE-3 Echo Rack is probably their most entry level squat rack you can get. Its an amazing piece of gym equipment but the problem is that getting that thing to your home gym will cost you anywhere from $700-800 dollars.
There is now though a good alternative to Rogue Fitness for those of us who are more price conscious than some of the people you might find on r/homegym for example.
And that alternative is Rep Fitness! I first heard about Rep Fitness several months ago when I was putting together my latest home gym that I actually built in a storage unit. (Basically where I’m living now space is at a serious premium so it was actually cheaper to rent a storage room and I got a really good deal)
I went with the Rep Fitness PR-1100 for my squat rack and I have been really impressed with it and the quality that you get for the price. I had a Rogue Fitness rack before and while I did enjoy the resale value of that rack I have to say I was not completely impressed or should I say convinced buy the premium you have to pay for their equipment.
Below is a picture of my rack in what I’m calling the Temple of Steel:
I highly suggest you check out the Rep Fitness Squat Racks. The only real complaint I have about mine is that the J Hooks move around a bit too much. Luckily I was actually able to fix that by upgrading them to some J Hooks I found on Amazon. If you want to know which J Hooks I went with please let me know by commenting in the comments section below.
If you do decide to go with the rep Fitness PR 1100 squat rack then be sure to let me know what you think of it!
