    I am interested in possibly purchasing a pulling sled for training. Does anyone know a website or store that sells them?

    U can make your own with a tire and some plywood and then load it with weights etc if you want a chheap optin or if you have someone who does welding,he could always knock you something up...

    Or get an old tyre/tire and have a piece of plywood that fits inside the tyre.You need to cut the sidewall of the tre slightly so you can feed in the plywood.It should be a tight fit.Bolt the tyre to the plywood (or you can just leave it loose-up to u)and put a strong eyebolt through the side of the tyre.Load the plywood with weights,sandbags etc.For extra loading room and to stop weights moving you can have a piece of pipe sticking up from the plywood to stop weights slopping around.Just make sure you get the right size depending upon whether u use oly or standard weights.

    Or you can buy a snow sled and use that as well with some rope tied on to it.

    Or an old wheelbarrow without the frame.

    How/where do I connect the ropes/straps? Where can I buy just the straps and/or harness?

    A friend of mine stitched up some polypropelene webbing stuff.An easy way is you have the eyebolt drilled in the side of the tyre,camping/climbing/army surplus stores normally clip carabiners,just use this to attach the webbing or rope to the eyebolt and no,as long as the tyre sits upon the grass it shouldnt tear up the lawn.Might tear you up physically though....

    And regards the harness,google it.

    I thought the plywood sat on the ground and the tire sat on top of the plywood....

    Well u could do that I guess but as all the weight is sat on the plywood in the scenario u thought and u are exerting pulling force upon the tire I don't think it would take too long before you pulled the tire off the plywood...

    Sorry, can't help myself...I own a VersaClimber...love it! No sled required.

    Although I don't use it as much as the treadmill or Stairmaster.

    My wife's Precor Elliptical is a piece of art collecting dust at this point.

    The price difference is pretty dramatic, though.
