What is the Purpose of Fitness Rings?

Fitness silicone wedding rings have gained in popularity in recent years because people who enjoy working out—both indoors and outdoors—often have to leave their rings behind. The silicone rings offer a better alternative because you can continue to do the activities you enjoy while also wearing the ring that symbolizes love, commitment, devotion, style, or a special memory. Here are just a few of the reasons people are foregoing their metal wedding rings for silicone rings during fitness activities.

1: Comfort

When you’re at the gym or outside working up a sweat, the last thing you want to think about is how uncomfortable your ring is. Unfortunately with metal rings, that might be your only choice, because a metal ring won’t stretch as your fingers swell or flex as your hands move. In fact, silicone rings are so flexible and stretchy they are ideal for a really wide range of fitness activities, including:

  • Cardio workouts

  • Weightlifting

  • Functional fitness

  • Rock climbing

  • Mountain biking

  • Hiking

  • Swimming

  • Kayaking and SUPing

  • Rowing

  • Road and trail running

  • And so much more

2: Safety

A metal ring worn during a workout can also present some safety risks, as people who have suffered a ring avulsion injury can attest. Even if you are lucky enough to escape the most severe injuries from ring avulsion—like traumatic and instant finger amputation—you can still suffer painful and lasting damage to your bones, tendons, muscles, and tissues when your ring gets caught on something and forcefully pulled from your finger.

3: Durability

Metal rings are also a problem for people with active lifestyles because they can get damaged on your adventures. You use your hands for a lot of things during fitness activities, from gripping a barbell to climbing rocks. In the process your ring can easily get scratched, dented, dinged, or otherwise damaged, which is frustrating considering how much you probably spent on it—at that price, you can’t really afford to buy a new one, so you just have to live with the damage.

4: Style

Just because you’re participating in your favorite activities at the gym or outdoors doesn’t mean you can’t show off your unique style. Enso Rings offers a wide array of different colors, designs, thicknesses, and even things like engraving for added personalization. You can choose whatever ring you want to go wherever it is you plan to go. Shop today to find the fitness ring that works best for you.
