Qalo Ring

 Qalo Rings

Qalo is up next and they have taken the fitness and tactical community by storm. We got three Qalo wedding rings in the mail about a month ago, one for Heidi and two for me. We both wore them while we Crossfitted, but I also keep one in my locker at work and wear it during tactical training or missions.  

I had seen Qalo and other athletes wearing them for a while now, but really noticed it after the football preseason started, since I had noticed many NFL quarterbacks sporting them.


As for the Crossfit community, this product has been super. It moves and stretches with your finger. Last week, we did a WOD with 75 pull-ups and the ring did not create any discomfort at all. The ring is firm, but has just enough give to make it flexible. Oh and they’re cool looking as well!!

As most of you know family and marriage is very important to us! showing our commitment to each other is priority!

I have worn my Qalo ring on 3 tactical missions and have worn it during training about 6 times. Shooting and other movements during that time has not been an issue. A few of the guys on my team now have purchased their own Qalo. Wearing my traditional wedding ring concerns me that it could get caught on something, wearing my Qalo (Silicone) ring I know that there is “give” in the ring and if I had to cut or rip it off I could. But this is firm and made well! Qalo score super high with us here at WODville.

JERK FIT~WODies & Nubs

We have another new Crossfitter good that’s now on the market. WODies is the name of the product and Man, have I been impressed with them. A simple enough concept, it provides both hand and wrist protection at once. Just to test the durability I have worn them for every workout over the last month, and just about every Crossfit movement has happened during that time. Not only have they done well, they have done excellent.

I have talked about this in the past, but I will bring it up again, we all know that group of Crossfitters that say it’s a rite of passage to have your hands rip from high volume pull-ups. I think that’s STUPID. That mentality slows your training down and prevents you from going all out as your hands heal. Well that where the WODies comes into play. When using them, you place your fingers into the top three holes. It lays flat against the palm and wraps firm around the wrist.

I have done high volume pull-ups and snatches sporting the WODies and they have been super! Not only will these stay in my gym bag and I will continue to use them, but Heidi has also used them for pull-up and barbell work and loves them as well.

Also, we received something else dubbed Nubs in this order. At first I laughed when I got these in and it took a couple of workouts to break them in, but now I love them. For those of you that like to push the barbell around and do many cleans, press, or snatch: for the most of you, the inside of your thumb blisters or gets irritated at the least. So most of us wrap the thumb with goat tape. Well not anymore! Nubs simply slide over the thumb and off you go. This review was great for us, because it put us onto not one new product, but two! WODies and Nubs score very high with WODville.

ZERO G Bottle Belt

ZERO G Bottle Belt
We have a pretty cool product to bring to you next, ZERO G Bottle Belt. It’s a space saver for your water & protein shakers and we installed it a few weeks ago in our cabinets. The ZERO G Bottle Belt was very quick and easy to install and works excellent in keeping your protein shakers from falling all over the place. (See our video review).

The staff at ZERO G has been great in communicating with us. There was very little distance between the point in time when we agreed to review the product to the time that we received it. This is a new item and they are running a Kickstarter campaign.

Go to the above link and see what Zero G owner Paul Peterson has to say about this awesome product!

 As for the packaging itself, it ships with two different kinds of screws. The purpose of the two different screws is for what surface you are installing the ZERO G Bottle Belt onto. It also has two brackets that attach to each end of the belt/band, which come in different sizes. We installed two small ones inside our cabinet and it works excellent, and it would still work excellent if we had installed it under the cabinet as well.

Space in the garage or kitchen is a delicate balance of organization, storage, and accessibility. Everything has its purpose, and everything has its place, otherwise, it’s in the way.
This is the case with bike bottles, shaker bottles and travel coffee mugs. Due to their light weight and awkward shape, they often tumble and clutter our shelves, cabinets, and counter tops. Considering the sheer amount of these containers and how often they are handled, it’s time they found their place.
  • Cutlery is kept in a wood block
  • Coats are hung on hooks 
  • Bikes are stowed on racks.
  • Bottles go in the ZERO G Bottle Belt
The patented design secures your containers between elastic bands with enough tension to hold them in place, even when hit or jostled.
When you don’t need your bottles, they simply get out of your way just by opening the door, so you can access everything else deep within your cabinets. And when you need your bottles, they’re easy to get to.
The easiest way to increase your storage is to make it more efficient. Securing your bot- tles in their own accessible area accommodates a better use of your space.
Although the system is very secure, placing and removing bottles is quick and easy, on your way out the door. 

This is a well-made product and we will continue to us this in the WODville Kitchen. Great job, ZERO G.

Meet Matt Henman our new writer!

Meet Super Matt!

It’s such an honor to be able to write for  My mission is to empower people to know that they can accomplish those things they simply set their mind to.  The key is accomplishing these activities or goal with community. 

Over the summer I have had the privilege and honor of completing a 176-mile relay across the Teton Mt. Range, running 77 miles across the Nevada desert, and finishing 2 GORUCK events. 

Those who have accomplished these with me have had incredible PR’s on lifts, CrossFit workouts, and pushed themselves further than they could have ever imagined. 

It’s your turn to get out there – to make things happen – to accomplish that which you think you cannot, but most importantly of all – reach out to a community around you – to reach out to people who believe in you and believe you can accomplish what you set your mind to.  That is what I am here for and that is what WODville is here for.  We review great products that will help you along the way, but at the end of the day as you prepare for that which you think you cannot – we will be there to support you all along the way! 

So get out there – make awesome happen – and know we are right beside you, cheering you on, and every step of the way know that you CAN!! GO TEAM RWB!
