JASON KHALIPA'S PURSUIT OF PURPOSE
Why Even Wear A Ring At All When You Work Out?
My wife and I workout together six days a week in the gym. The gym equipment was taking a toll on our wedding bands, so we stopped wearing them to the gym. This coupled with my career as an Electrical Engineer, I can’t wear anything conductive. So over time we both just stopped wearing our […]
5 Reasons Why The QALO Ring Is Solid Both In And Out Of The Gym
As a strength and conditioning coach I’m a big believer in efficiency and durability. Every piece of equipment, every athlete, and every training space must be designed and ready for function. I’m a big believer in this and anything less only serves as an irritant to me. I don’t have the time or the patience […]
How To Train When You’re A Caboose
You were the last one picked for the team. There was an audible groan when you were the last one left and the other team HAD to pick you. When people described you, they’d use sweet, funny, or smart, butnever strong, athletic, or fast. But you were content being the friend, the confidant, and the student. Being […]
How to Train When You're a Caboose
We Do QALO
“I Do.” These are the final words spoken before two become one. Two individuals stand face to face, in front of all of the most important people in their lives, and with these two words they commit to one another. And then, just like that, they’re married. It’s done. Yet it’s just started. And at that moment, the individual “I Do” becomes […]
QALO Rings: More Than a Metal Band
By Frank Borelli
It was a fairly typical Friday evening. I was on patrol, moving along the rowdy juvenile loiterers and looking for the known drug dealers. A fellow officer was on patrol in the next beat sector over and we’d occasionally meet at the line, brief each other on what was going on and then go back to our erratic patrols. When the radio squawked, it was him. He had a couple of our known dealers under surveillance and wanted to say good evening to them. One of them would likely drop whatever they were holding and bolt. True to form, one of us would gather the evidence while the other went on foot pursuit after the one that rabbited.
6 Reasons A Firefighter Should Wear QALO
By. Brendan Kragel
There are many reasons firefighters should wear QALO rings on the job.
1. The first reason is quite simple... safety. As firefighters we are constantly working with our hands. This means that we are at higher risk for hand and finger injuries. The injury of "degloving" is all too common in the fire service. By wearing a QALO ring the risk of this injury is significantly reduced based on the physical material it is made out of.
Commitment is More Courageous Than Firefighting
Everyone knows a firefighter. It comes up every time I tell someone what my husband does. Oh yeah. Our old neighbor was a firefighter. It’s as if we should know them (and a lot of times we may!) There’s that brief pause that shows their admiration and appreciation for firefighters who are willing to do dangerous things to rescue people in harms way.
Health, Wealth, And…Winter?
If you live in just about any 45 of the 50 states, you have probably been experiencing some kind of extreme winter weather over the last couple weeks. In Colorado, it’s been snowing non-stop for three days, and it’s supposed to continue for the rest of the week and weekend. In only one night, it […]
The Adventurer’s Valentine’s Day – Moab, UT
The day’s last sunshine lights upon the rocks soaring overhead, painting them crimson and amber. Overhead the stars begin to come out: a million pinpricks of light in an infinite sky. You lean over and give your partner a long, slow kiss; you could be the only people in the world. Welcome to Arches National […]
