Have you always wanted to simulate an infinite length of rope that never becomes easier to pull? 

Introducing the Endless Rope Pull Machine™!

Feel that amazing stress that comes along with a seemingly clean pull turning into your worst nightmare, as the sun sets, wind picks up, and your headlamp lights are slowly dieing.

For an extra fee, you can get the Whip™ addon, which periodically lashes your shoulders, back, and ears to help provide a genuine experience. 

Sample workout:

-Start sideways to simulate endless rope coiling, 10 minutes

-Climb up and down a step-box while scraping along the sandpaper, especially knuckles and knees, 100 reps

-Pull rope, alternating hands, 10 minutes

-During all of this, stay on your tiptoes on the edge of a plate, simulating the micro-belay ledge

    Continue for 1-2 days

I'm jealous, my Planet Fitness never had one of these, just a pair of those obnoxious thick ropes that you wave up and down. Although mine had free weights, I guess not a lot of them have those.

If you look on the photo this one does indeed have the thick ropes to flick up and down, simulating the experience of trying to flick a rope out a an impossibly small flake which has the rope completely immobilized. 

Add this to your set, x100 rope flicks
