i am sure i’m not surprising anyone who has kept up with me on thefirst2hours when i say that i love workout partners. anyone who has ever played on a team can relate to the indescribable bonding that ensues hard work toward a common goal. it is motivating, fun, and for me, it yields greater results.
as life has progressed and i have gotten older, finding workout partners become exceedingly more difficult. especially when i chose to move to a more conservative state, where everyone has kids young in life. finding girlfriends to work out with in idaho has been a challenge. and i get nostalgic for the good ol days of being surrounded by a community of women who are as eager as i am to be active, and fit, together.
but there is a silver lining, i have my joe. recently i got engaged to a good-looking mountain man. there is no better work-out partner to have, than the person you plan to spend the rest of your life with. staying fit is a priority in joe’s life as well. being active is what keeps us sane, and we get to be active together, forever.
whenever possible, joe and i prefer to be active outside. but in the daily grind, sometimes a trip to the gym is what schedules allow.
it was in one of our recent trips to the gym when i was doing some pull ups, that i realized that something needed to be changed. my ring! i didn’t want to take it off, because I love what is symbolizes; but that little golden circle was so obnoxious to wear as it rubbed up against the pull up bar, or whatever weight I was holding.
immediately i googled ring alternatives for active people, and voila!…i found QALO. quality. athletics. love. outdoors. the moment we got home, joe and i ordered our QALO rings.
they came in these handy little baggies so that i have somewhere to put my real ring when i take it off. they have a schnazzy sizing feature on their website that helped us find the best sizes, and they are comfortable to wear everywhere i go. joe and i opted for the men’s and women’s outdoor silicone rings in grey (for him) and navy (for me).
i wear my QALO to the gym.
i wear my QALO when i play volleyball.
i wear my QALO when i go fly fishing.
i couldn’t be happier with my purchase. and i am tempted to wear my QALO full time because it is so comfortable!
this summer joe and i are getting married, and i will give it a true test as we go on our backpacking honeymoon through alaska!
