The RIP GEAR has been invented by Pete Holmann

We live and play in multiple planes of motion, at varying speeds, with uneven forces. Every day we "battle" against forces which challenge our posture, stability and balance in three dimensional space .

The uniqueness of the Rip gear is that it trains us in 3D! The resistance cord which is attached to one side of the Rip gear, requires the use of muscles throughout the legs, core and upper body to help maintain an upright, balanced posture. This type of unbalanced tension or load is similar to forces we see in everyday life and sports. Additionally, because every muscle in the body is working while using the Rip gear, fighting resistance in multi dimensions, burns 3 times more calories than traditional abdominal and core exercises. Finally, if we don't train to control twisting and rotation through the spine our backs are susceptible to injury.

Imagine playing cricket, lifting your child into a car seat, or lugging around a heavy suitcase in the airport; all these activities are done standing upright, with tension that is loaded from one side of the body (asymmetrical loading.) However, in the gym we often train in straight planes of motion or in two dimension (ie: bicep curls, leg press, seated shoulder press, etc.) You can do what you love, do it longer and perform at higher levels with proper 3D training!



  • Increased fat loss and leaner muscles
  • A faster workout (you can do a full-body workout in 20 minutes using the Rip gear)
  • Increased performance in multi sports which will enable a sportsperson to take his performance from level 0ne to ten.
  • Reduced risk of injury (especially to the back )
  • Higher energy levels at work
  • A new way to live: healthy, balanced and powerful
  • Increases your reaction time and reflexes
  • Helps to increase the performance of your footwork
  • Challenges you in different planes of motion by pivoting and twisting the spine
  • Improves balancing power.
  • Challenges the motor units in your brain to work faster and efficiently in all planes of motion.
  • It is a speed and strength equipment.
  • It is light weight and portable
  • Can be used anywhere and anytime in the world and by any age group without any risk.


Trigger points are tiny knots that develop in a muscle when it is injured or overworked. Commonly a cause of most joint pain, they are known to cause headaches, neck and jaw pain, low back pain, tennis elbow, and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Based on the discoveries of Drs. Janet Travell and David Simons in which they found the causal relationship between chronic pain and its source, myofascial trigger point therapy is used to relieve muscular pain and dysfunction through applied pressure to trigger points of referred pain and through stretching exercises. These points are defined as localized areas in which the muscle and connective tissue are highly sensitive to pain when compressed. Pressure on these points can send referred pain to other specific parts of the body.

Trigger Point Therapy can relieve muscular aches and pains in association with these areas. It can also assist with the redevelopment of muscles and/or restore motion to joints. Trigger Point Performance products are specifically designed to support the massage associated with Trigger Point Therapy. Trigger points are described as hyperirritable spots in skeletal muscle that are associated with palpable nodules in taut bands of muscle fibers. Trigger point researchers believe that palpable nodules are small contraction knots and a common cause of pain. Compression of a trigger point may elicit local tenderness, referred pain, or local twitch response. The local twitch response is not the same as a muscle spasm. This is because a muscle spasm refers to the entire muscle entirely contracting whereas the local twitch response also refers to the entire muscle but only involves a small twitch, no contraction.

There are six major areas of the body that we feel are key players in the human biomechanical chain. We call this "ultimate 6" and we build upon this foundation by targeting these specific areas resulting in even greater efficiency of movement
