Best place to order equipment? Kat? Claire? Suz?

For my birthday this year I'm asking for a kettlebell set, a weightlifting bar, and some bumper weights.  Where is the best place to order from??  And what do you recommend?  I've been looking on rogue fitness but is there somewhere better?

I wish I knew.  Someday when I grow up I'm going to have a rockin' home gym, and THEN I will be the girl to ask!  LOL  I only own some hand weights from Sport Authority (and they suck- I wouldn't recommend the ones I bought).

But hell yeah on the Bday gift ideas!  I want a pull up bar (I STILL haven't ordered one).  No idea where it's going to go, though, and I am a long way from being able to do even one (I tried them again today in the gym).  Too much darn body weight still.  But I'm practicing!

Aw, nice!  Jonathan said he was going to build a TRX thing for me, but it hasn't happened yet.  He did order my new CambelBak Marathoner Vest, which I CANNOT WAIT to test out!  Now to get my distance back up to justify...  With summer coming, I foresee many a long run!

I got this set with the bench on craigslist for a great price and in mint condition! The original owner is a lawyer who's moving to FL... I say take a peek there... You never know ...

Oh, we also bought the treadmill at Sport Authority.  They have an alright selection of KBs and such.  You might have a better selection online, but watch out for shipping on things like weights (for obvious reasons!).

Rogue fitness is where I get everything. They supply crossfit. They also sell kbs in heavy sets and they have a mix and match option.

Rogue Fitness is probably the best... I do LOVE LOVE LOVE Academy Sports though... we were in there last night and I was running my hands lovingly over the equipment in there... Heath just shakes his head at this point. ( altough he does it too and doesn't notice it.. )

We bought the Bowflex SelectTech 552s.  I (we, but mostly me) needed heavier weights and no room to put all the dumbbells or a rack for them.  We got them through Walmart for $300, other places they are $400-600.  We don't have any place for bigger equipment right now.

I already checked Craigslist. No one had what I want. I don't want free weights like that. I want a bar :)
