The philosophy behind R.O.P.E.S ® is that by utilizing our basic equipment everyone should be able to gain strength and flexibility whether they are amateurs or professional athletes. We like to look upon ourselves as carriers of the great Norwegian tradition of the polar explorers! Those guys went out to conquer the North and the South pole, with only themselves and basic equipment to rely on. They did an incredible job, with the equipment that they were able to carry with them. This equipment was basic, but of good quality, and did the job intended without any fuzz- just the way all the R.O.P.E.S® equipment is made to do for you!


Your own body weight, combined with Bungee-Training cords, slings, Balance bars and slide pads, creates a fun, inspiring and effective workout, whether you exercise individually or together with others. As we always say: do it alone if you must – but do it together if you can!
