Craig DeMartino - Adaptive Climber and Motivational Speaker

Craig DeMartino Wears a Groove Ring

When destiny seemed to push Craig DeMartino down, he pushed back and never quit chasing his goals. After a 100-foot fall stopped Craig’s climbing career in its tracks, he made the tough decision to amputate his leg so he could continue climbing. During the healing process, Craig gave himself the grace and time to heal and that perspective has brought him to where he is today: the first amputee to climb Yosemite's El Capitan in under 24 hours and the first amputee to climb the Nose of El Cap in under a day, just to name a few.

If you’ve ever wondered how to recover after trauma and find meaning while living in a “new normal,” follow Craig on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to receive encouragement and inspiration.

Why do these professional athletes choose Groove Life?

Why should athletes wear Groove Rings?

Everyday life for these athletes involves weight lifting, climbing, javelin throwing, or punching, not to mention a ton of good ol’ fashioned sweat. A traditional metal wedding ring or statement ring could put the finger at risk of serious injury at all times, and if anyone needs their fingers for performance, it’s an athlete.

The Groove Ring is an alternative ring made out of medical-grade silicone, designed to break away from the finger when snagged to protect the hand. It also includes signature breathable grooves inside the band to allow air in and moisture out, keeping the skin dry and rash-free!

The Groove Life Watch Band includes the same breathable grooves as the Groove Ring and is available for Samsung, Fitbit, and Apple smartwatches. The breathable Groove Watch Band also comes in leather options so you don’t have to choose style over comfort!

The Convenient, Innovative Groove Belt

The Groove Belt is the most recent unconventional product to be designed here at Groove Life and includes its own groundbreaking technology. The buckle is created with powerful neodymium magnets so you can buckle it with just one hand! The belt is hassle-proof; you only have to adjust it once and it’s ready to go! The belt combines just the right amount of stretch and security to hold its shape while flexing with your movements. If you’re kinda attached to the pull-tight-and-cinch belt process, The Groove Belt is way too comfortable for you. But if you’re ready to kick those problems out the door, shop The Groove Belt here.

Whether you’re an athlete, police officer, angler, nurse, or anything in between, you know the danger of traditional wedding rings. If you ever find yourself leaving your ring at home when you head to the gym or to work, if you can’t bring yourself to wear a regular belt, or if you’ve experienced the dreaded watch band rash, go ahead and check out our website. Groove Life is the answer you’ve been waiting for.

Keep Groovin’!
