This morning, I opened my email and found a product review from Steve.
Steve is a Synergee Athlete. He has a Synergee Regional Barbell. And recently, he bought himself some Aluminum Barbell Collars to go with it.
He left us a glowing review titled, “Aluminum Barbell Collars...Why did I wait?" and went on to say "These look better and work better than the spring collars I've used for years.”
And it left me flabbergasted. I was – as the kids say – “shook”.
Are there still people out there using spring collars?
Are there still suffering folks that make it all the way to the gym, put weight on their bar, and then have to sift through spring collars that have been bumped and warped and tangled and rusting to just get through ONE REP?!
Are there still poor souls that - upon finishing a heavy deadlift or squat or press - are forced to squeeze those spring collars to get them off and risk a horrible hand cramp?
If you are one of these sorrowful individuals, don’t worry. We aren’t judging you. But we are here to help.
THIS INJUSTICE ENDS NOW!
YOU DESERVE ALUMINUM COLLARS!
You work your BUTT OFF at the gym! You spend hours loading, lifting, sweating, and swearing as you transform into a stronger-, healthier-, happier-than-yesterday version of yourself.
The least we can do for you is offer Aluminum Collars at a mind-blowingly low price; and the least you can do for yourself is take us up on that offer and buy yourself a pair.
IT’S CALLED SELF LOVE!
And here are 3 reasons why our Aluminum Collars are superior – especially when compared to Spring Collars – that should get you off your butt, on the computer, and hitting add to cart (if you aren’t already doing that)!
REASON #1: THEY ARE STRONG!
We don’t recommend you put a bumper plate on your bar, hold it in place with an aluminum collar, and then stand on it in a precarious way to test its strength… BUT if you did, it holds up like a champ.
We already did it though, so you don't have to.
Our aluminum collars require less fixing and adjusting than silly spring collars. If you drop your bar, they keep everything in place so you can pick it up and get back at it.
REASON #2: THEY ARE COMPACT AND PORTABLE!
These Aluminum Collars can be brought anywhere and everywhere. If you work out at home, they take up virtually no space and do not have weird arms haphazardly sticking out like Spring Collars do.
Our Aluminum Collars do, indeed, have an arm; but it can be set in the locked position for storage.
And if you don’t work out at home, you can easily toss the collars in your gym bag and take them with you. That way, you’re guaranteed to have sturdy, dependable, beautiful collars for every lift!
REASON #3: THEY STAND THE TEST OF TIME!
Whether we’re talking about their looks or functionality, these collars to not let up. We have sets we’ve been using in our Synergee Fitness Gym for years that have withstood the force of thousands of cleans, snatches, deadlifts, presses, bails and drops.
And all of them still look incredible.
And all of them still hold the bumper plates in the exact place they are supposed to.
Spring collars don’t look good. And they warp easily. And they rust. And did I mention they are just super annoying, even when they are in pristine shape? Sometimes you need two on each sleeve to keep the plates in place – and that’s double the agony.
STOP THE MADNESS!
I say treat yourself.
But what I really mean is if you don’t have aluminum collars yet, then please, PLEASE, PLEASE be kind to yourself and buy yourself a pair.
Better yet, if you have a friend suffering through the spring collar mess, be a pal and buy them a pair.
You can find them in our shop here.
Happy shopping – you deserve it!
