4 Places Where Fitness Lovers Should Wear Silicone Rings

Fitness enthusiasts were some of the first people to start the current silicone wedding ring trend, and it’s no surprise why. They offer the ability to keep your ring on during any kind of activity you want to enjoy, from lifting weights in the gym to rock climbing and watersports. Plus they are super comfortable and stylish, so you don’t miss out on having an amazing ring and still enjoying the sports you love. Here are four places where fitness lovers can benefit from a silicone ring.


The Gym

Whether your gym time includes long cardio sessions, a ton of heavy weights, or something in between, a silicone wedding ring is ideal to wear during your workouts. Metal rings can get uncomfortably tight, especially if your fingers swell a little while you exercise. If you are handling gym equipment, such as dumbbells, kettlebells, or pull-up bars, you are also risking damage to your expensive wedding ring.

But going without a ring at the gym might not be your style either, particularly if you want to show your commitment to the one you love. Silicone rings offer the perfect balance of comfort, safety, and style.


Rock Climbing

Your fingers are your life if you love to rock climb, so wearing a metal ring is a risky proposition. You often find yourself in precarious positions hanging on your fingertips, and if you slip and fall that metal wedding band could get caught on a rock edge. Your metal ring won’t break, so you end up with a ring avulsion injury. Your finger muscles, tendons, bones, and tissues tear, or in serious cases your finger is amputated. Even if you escape the worst injuries, you likely won’t be able to use that finger for a while, which puts a long pause on rock climbing.



Those who love to be in the water know that wearing a wedding ring is a bad idea. Mainly because metal rings don’t stretch or shrink to fit tightly around your finger, so when you get in the water it’s more likely to slip off.

Silicone rings are perfect for all types of watersports:

  • Surfing

  • Kayaking

  • Canoeing

  • Swimming

  • Wakeboarding

  • Waterskiing

  • Parasailing

  • Windsurfing

  • Diving

  • Boating


Contact Sports

Another place where safety is a big concern is on the field during contact sports. As with rock climbing, wearing a metal ring that could get caught on someone’s jersey or equipment puts your fingers at risk. That’s why you see so many professional athletes today—like Phillip Rivers, Kirk Cousins, and Bryce Harper—who are opting for silicone wedding rings. Perfect for gameday, practice, and every day.

These aren’t the only activities that you should wear your silicone rings; in fact, these rings are perfect for any outdoor or indoor hobby, sport, or exercise routine. Shop Enso Rings today to get yours.
