There’s only a few traveling ring sets in the entire world and within the United States there are only four U.S. cities that have them in public parks.
Right here in the Alamo City you can find the traveling rings at Pearsall Park (5000 Old Pearsall Road) on the city’s southwest side.
So what are traveling rings, you may ask? They are a special type of equipment that is used that normally has 5 – 10 aluminum rings fitted by chains to a pole structure. A person uses this equipment by “traveling” to one ring to the next with a combination of arm pulls and leg swings. It is a great strenuous workout.
The benefits of this equipment is:
- To get in shape
- strengthen upper arm muscles
- become more confident
- meet new people
- engage more in the community
