I became part of the Fringe Fam in 2018 with almost all my Fringe gear purchased all at once with the help of Lauren P (the best!).
What's your favorite gear that you use all the time?
I think my go to is the squat rack and barbell. With just those two things, and some weight of course, you can accomplish anything!
What gear do you never use?
I think the only thing in my gym that doesn't get the use it should would be my plyo box. After getting 11 staples in my shin after missing a jump a few years ago I've been pretty apprehensive to use it.
What was your best gear purchase?
Fringe Sport bumpers!!! They quality and value of them plus the fact that you can drop the 10s makes them a smart buy!

I've been smart with my purchases so there is nothing I regret or wish that I said no to.

I come up with my own programming so I enjoy them all but my go to is usually a long metcon with near equal parts of work and rest.
