    I’m now using the parallets from Calisthenics Family for about a month. And I am so happy that I bought them. Current excercises I use them the most for are handstand, push ups (variations) and l-sit. I already see big progression in my handstand!
    What makes these paralletes for me better then other ones, is the thickness of it. U really feel great grip when you excercise and specially for handtand feels that more secure on the ground. They are not heavy so it’s easy to take them with you to the park. If i describe it in one worth: perfect!

    Using these wooden parallettes for 3 weeks now. Besides the fact that they look really nice, they are usefull during your workouts. They have a nice handgrip, are very stable during exercises and do not slip on any surface. So, if you are planning to use parallettes during your workout… I would definitely recommend these ones:) (Great price/quality ratio)

    Sinds een week of 4 deze parallettes in gebruik. daarvoor gebruikte ik een paar zelfgemaakte exemplaren, die zijn echter niet te vergelijken met deze van Calisthenics family. De parallettes zijn perfect, ze zijn compact genoeg om mee te nemen en tegelijkertijd groot genoeg om er verschillende oefeningen op te doen.
    Ook zijn wegen ze verrassend weinig en zijn (en staan) ze bijzonder stevig.
    Ook de dikte van de bar is erg fijn, deze zijn dikker dan de parallettes van andere verkopers en zijn daardoor erg fijn voor de handen. Ik denk dat met deze parallettes de nieuwe standaard is gezet hoe ze behoren te zijn! Kortom een zeer goede aanrader en voor de prijs hoef je het zeker niet te laten.

    Using these parallettes for 4 weeks now. I used a few homemade ones before, but they are not comparable to those of Calisthenics family. The parallettes are simply perfect, they are compact enough to take with you and at the same time are big enough to do different exercises.
    They also weigh surprisingly little and are (and stand) extremely sturdy.
    Also the thickness of the bar is very fine, these are thicker than the parallettes of other sellers and are therefore very nice for the hands. I think that with these parallels the new standard is set as to how they should be!
    In short, a very good recommendation and for the price it is a nobrainer.

    Been following calisthenics family for almost two years now via instagram. Via instragram they also introduced their parallettes which are unique compared to all other paralettes.
    I have tried different paralettes and I can really recommend these paralettes for the following reasons:
    -They are ridiculously light, compared to the other paralettes I used! So light, you would probably think that the quality of the paralettes would go down because of this. Nonsense!
    -They are made out of wood. For the ones who have sweaty hands like me, I can definitely recommend wooden paralettes.
    -They are thicker than all other paralettes. This is probably the most important reason why you should consider these paralettes instead of others. The thicker the handles the easier all the exercises get. It will probably feel a bit weird if you are used to smaller paralettes, but trust me after using it once, you’ll definitely agree with me on this one. Also their will be less stress on your wrists, because the bars are thicker.

    All in all, these paralettes are definitely recommended compared to their peers. Especially the thickness of these wooden paralletes make them unique!

    I bought these paralettes from calisthenics family because I heard they are thicker as other paralettes that are on the market. The price of the paralettes for me was a bit expensive, but I guess with all thing in life if you want to have some quality product you need to pay for it!. I’m using the paralettes now for a month and I experience during training that I improve quiker in skills such like the handstand and etc. I hope I may enjoy the paralettes for a long time 🙂

  8. Lars M (verified owner)

    The paralletes are very good. The old ones I had (a cheap pair from the local sports shop) just broke the day I received the new ones (lucky me) They are very stable and the thick handles make it perfect (and easier) to get in the right position when you are upside down(handstand, l-sit to handstand, ect). A must have for calisthenics athletes who want to progress fast, save and the right way!

  9. Tom

    Very good parallettes
    They dont slip and the thick grip gives you a very safe feeling.

    And I also have to thank for the great service.
    So all in one: perfect

    During the group training I also came into contact with the Parrallets. When I first used them for handstand, I clearly noticed a difference with a loose handstand on the floor. Apart from the fact that it takes some time getting used to the kick-ups, because you have to push harder, I noticed that my wrists were much less stressed. In addition, I feel that you are much more stable in a handstand attitude and you are forced not to walk on your hands. This ensures that you can practice the handstand much more precisely and thus make progress faster. Last month I ordered a set of Parrallets for myself. Since then, my handstand has become much better and I can hold it longer. I notice that after a training of the Full Journey Program in which I practice handstand, I feel much less pressure on my wrists. At the moment I use the Parrallets for other exercises such as HSPU, Frog Stands, L-sit Holds and normal pushups. In short, I am really happy with these Parrallets and I can’t train without them anymore.

    Right after Michael & Yannick released their parallettes I immidetaly bought them. I already tested them during the training sessions and I noticed how the thicker bar feels so stable. Since I’ve been using these parallettes I made faster progress in my handstands! I definitely recommend these to others!

  20. Lucas Miller

    Such great parallettes. After buying these I am finally able to do a proper handstand. Didn’t think the thicker bars would make such a big difference but man was i wrong! They didn’t lie about optimal grip 😀
