What else to consider from Rogue

Overview of the Rogue collegiate rack

The Monster Collegiate half rack is another special purpose rack and one of the newer developments in the Rogue portfolio. You get the full benefit of the design when you opt for the double rack option. This leaves the plate storage in the middle of two training stations optimizing footprint and rack stations in a long line which can be accessed from both ends. In addition, the design makes it easy to switch between band/rope work and heavy lifts in the same session due to the prolonged sockets. 

How many clients should the collegiate rack bring you?

If you think that the Rogue Monster Collegiate will bring you 4 new clients who pay you 50$ on a 1-year retainer it is worth the investment. This will yield 2.400$ net new revenue against an investment of 1.160$. Adjust the numbers for your own gym accordingly.

Pros of the collegiate rack


The Rogue Monster Collegiate is a low price option to enter the Rogue Monster Series family of Rogue. If you want to train many people in parallel this is a good option. 

Cons of the collegiate rack

There are not many cons to this low price monster rack except that you do not get a full rack to train in.

Alternatives to the collegiate rack

Here are some alternatives at a price point of 1.160$ to the Collegiate rack:
With this rack, you get a nice full rack with special branding at a slightöly lower price than the collegiate rack. This can be a good option when you want more space inside the rack to do your workouts. 
This is an option that leaves you with a full rack and the option to choose your color. The disadvantage is that you get the Monster LIte to make instead of the Monster base for your rack.


If you want a rack that is not too expensive and can be used inside and outside a rack for band work, this is the one to go for. It is also a good option when you have limited space and want o make maximum use of your setup.
