We believe ring training is the next big thing in fitness and strength development and from this perspective we are providing a ring training exercise resource for the layman, not the gymnast. We consider this form of workout in terms of the health and fitness benefits you will undoubtedly find by putting its methods into practice.

Ring training is a form of bodyweight exercise using gymnastics rings. It's a highly challenging form of training, but in return - the benefits are far in excess of any other traditional exercise routine.

As a beginner, spend 2 minutes ring training and you will develop a new found respect for the gymnast. The level of strength and bodily control required to perform even the most basic of gymnastics routines is immense, which is why gymnastics rings training is one of the most challenging disciplines any athlete can undergo.

The same principles can be applied to the average man, those who are dedicated to fitness, to building strength, muscle mass, flexibility and want to have fun doing it. We are passionate about fitness, and when we discovered ring training, it redefined how we work out and is now a staple part of our exercise regime.

The benefits of training with rings is obvious to anyone who has seen the physique of a gymnast, which speaks for itself really. It takes incredible strength, and flexibility to workout using rings, and so in-turn helps to develop your strength, your muscle definition and overall fitness. It's particularly effective for developing the core body and abdominals.
