The Qalo Approach

Not too long ago Jeff came across this company as an option for the fact that he couldn’t wear his traditional ring. Being that he teaches and trains martial arts, wearing a a metal ring was detrimental to himself and his training partners. I remember him initially mentioning it, and even showing it to me in person. It seemed like an interesting concept and something I would consider wearing.  It wasn’t until about a week or so ago that my knuckle decided to outgrow my ring that I made it a reality.

My first wedding ring lasted me a few year but eventually broke. It wasn’t able to handle the demands of working in a warehouse. My second is in perfect condition but after having it  for only a year it wont comfortably slide past my knuckle so now it’s completely useless to me. This is when I decided to look into the Qalo line. Even with everything Jeff had said about the ring I was still a bit skeptical. I’m not the biggest fan of rings so I was worried that it would be something that would bug me during training.

The rings were reasonably price with the majority of them priced at $19.99 with a great selection of colors, designs, and some even made in support of Lupus and Breast Cancer awareness.  They have three lines currently available; the Quality, Love, and Outdoor Collections. The collections themselves vary in design but they are all made from 100% medical grade silicone. Now if you are like most men, you will have no clue what your ring size is. No worries, just click “Find My Ring Size” and follow the on screen prompts. You’ll be led to a screen where you’ll be instructed to use your credit/debit card or license to resize the onscreen scale. Since I had my ring I was able to just hold it up to the screen and get an accurate size for my order.

Most importantly it held firm during Jiu-Jitsu. With all the sweating and fighting for grips, I anticipated that it would either slide or get pulled off at some point but it held steady. I’m extremely happy with the purchase and have already sent a coworker over to the site for her Navy husband.

You can’t go wrong with one of these. It saves you the hassle of remembering when not wear your ring and if it’s lost or damaged it’s a cheap and easy replacement. I highly recommend Qalo for anyone who’s living an active lifestyle!
