I am the head coach and part owner at Hawkeye Gymnastics in Iowa City, Iowa. We use Ironwear products to increase the difficulty for body weight exercises, isometric exercises, and dynamic exercises. In addition to using ankle and wrist weights for working on bars and beam we use the weight vests for sprints, jumps and anything else we can come up with. The material used in the vest provides me the comfort in allowing the gymnasts to do rolls, flips, handstands and other basic movements without the fear of them injuring due to the product. I have used other similar products but havenít found anything that is as durable and safe to use in this environment.
These products are new to the gym and as parents have seen the Ironwear products they say that they are the most superior vests and weights they have seen, in addition to the sleek look.
