Just curious to where you guys go to purchase gym equipment and accesories like a dip belt.
Not sure where you're located or if you'd prefer new over used, but Play It Again Sports stores usually have a decent selection of used equipment. Worth a look if you're near one, or similar store.
I agree, it's a good place to look if you're on a budget. Otherwise, I'd go with APT (for some things) or from someone I know will give good customer service like Rickey Dale Crain at Crain's Muscle World or Murph at TPS. The price difference for small ticket items isn't going to be very much, I'd rather buy from someone I can trust to bend over backwards to help out if there's a problem.
