Resistance and weight training are just as important to our overall well-being as Aerobic forms of exercise. As someone who has been in the Holistic side of the wellness industry for over 30 years now, I know for a fact the men and women who age well are those who have eaten wisely and exercised regularly. As I work and learn to skills to add to my training repertoire, I am always discovering new tools and methods of training. More than ever, as many of clients age, the importance of finding tools and exercises that produce the most effective results with the lowest possibility of injury are my preference.
I recently found this interesting set of bands developed by a Former FC2 (SW/SAR) at US Navy. His name is Christos Meimaroglou and he developed the GripSling as a way to keep fit when there weren’t training facilities available. Through his own ingenuity Christos developed the straps and designed them so they could be used in conjunction with other training equipment, they can be hung from a tree, you can use them with your training partner, in a way that will help you to stay strong, flexible and fit. They are also a powerful physical therapy tool for someone who has been injured or had surgery, and is looking to regain their strength.
When Christos left the military, he continued to recruit his training straps into his workouts and share his unique training methods with others. The response has been so amazing that he decided to market his functional creation. Christos has encouraged people who have purchased GripSling to upload and share workout videos to Instagram, encouraging a breakthrough of new and dynamic utilization for exercises. Thousands of people have purchased GripSling training straps and have actively posted their training videos on Instagram. He also offers an Affiliate Program in order to encourage other people to share GripSling training methods with their community. The side benefit, besides people gaining strength, is the connections that others have formed as a result of becoming a part of the GipSling movement.
