I am not much for testimonials but after 22 years as the owner of an in-home personal training company it was time to let you know my experiences with Ironwear ankle weights. When you work 12 hours per day with up to 8 clients and use only one set of ankle weights that says something about the longevity and quality of a product.
The Wellness Specialists of my company and I only use one ankle weight and that is Ironwear. We have tried just about every ankle weight in the industry and the client complaints were numerous. They were either uncomfortable, would not stay fastened, or just broke.
About 3 years ago I bought a set of the 10-pound (2- 5pound) ankle irons, not expecting much; was I wrong. That means about 2000 hours with clients and using only one set. A client was going on vacation and needed ankle weights so I gave her mine. Now I am working on my second set and am sure to get at least another 3 years; now that is a great product.
I developed a methodology in 1985 after numerous injuries, am teaching a certification course through ACE, NASM and soon to be approved by NSCA, AFAA & ACSM - Steve Satin - LRome™. Each trainer will be able to purchase a kit with a mat, hand weights, tube and set of ankle weights. There is only 1 set of ankle weights offered at the course- Ironwear.
Thank you for a great product and look forward to a lot of years working together.
