It will provide a unique mix of rotation, core stability, control, power, strength, mobility, metabolic conditioning, and balance and coordination challenges.
Who should use it?
It’s a perfect workout, whether you're just getting started on a fitness routine or you're a professional athlete. The Rip Trainer is versatile in every aspect. As you begin to build strength and endurance, you can increase the resistance with various changes to foot and hand positions, a heavier resistance band and anchoring the carabiner at high, neutral and low positions.
The beauty of the Rip Trainer is that it cannot be outgrown. Your workouts will get more intense as you increase strength and stamina. Some of the best places to hook up a Rip Trainer are on a fence post, tennis court, stable weight equipment unit at the gym or wrapped around a tree at the park.
