Torque Fitness releases new ski trainer to maximise cardio challenges
February 27, 2024

Torque Fitness, a supplier of heavy-duty training tools for organisations including Anytime Fitness and Gold’s Gym, has released its new ski trainer – the ‘Relentless Ripper’ – equipment that delivers a total-body, low-impact workout engaging multiple muscle groups and build stamina and strength without pounding impact.   

The Relentless Ripper ski trainer satisfies the demand for maximum efficiency and effectiveness while HIIT remains popular among athletes and gym-goers.  

The space-saving design of the commercial Relentless Ripper makes it simple to add to any workout area. Mountable to racks, rigs and walls, this innovative workhorse offers multiple options without incorporating a bulky frame, platform or footprint.    

Built with the company’s cutting-edge Mag-Force Technology ™, the patent-pending Relentless Ripper outperforms other ski ergs with 10 levels of progressive magnetic resistance for customizable and continuous endurance challenges to exercisers and athletes of all levels. These total-body, low-impact workouts engage multiple muscle groups and build stamina and strength without pounding impact.   

Jerry Dettinger, Chief Executive of Torque Fitness notes “The Relentless Ripper embodies Torque’s focused drive to deliver workouts that are incredibly effective and space- and time-efficient – all to support our mission of helping athletes become a better version of themselves.”

With a belt-driven transmission, the Relentless Ripper offers quieter and smoother operation, and the single-stage transmission affords a compact design. Over-moulded ergonomic grips provide a comfortable and secure hold for both single-pole and double-pole modes.   

The LCD performance monitor serves as an instant motivator, tracking time, strokes per minute, watts, calories, distance, 500-meter split times and more. Users wearing a 5kHz chest strap can view their heart rate on the display as well.   

It is compatible with Torque’s X-CREATE (front mount or side mount with an additional accessory) and X-RACK/X-SIEGE (upright mount or rectangular cross mount); and can attach to a wall with a header board or wall mount accessory.   

Measuring 62.2 cm x 53.3 cm x 99.3 cm, the Relentless Ripper is built with Torque’s signature precision, ergonomic engineering and heavy-duty construction to withstand rigorous workouts and yield long-lasting performance. Backed by Torque’s commercial warranty, it is sold direct and from authorized Torque Fitness dealers.   

With more than 40 years of commercial design expertise, Torque Fitness creates, heavy-duty training tools for organisations including Anytime Fitness, Gold’s Gym and Life Time Fitness.

In stock and ready to ship, the Relentless Ripper is available at
