We live Functional Fitness

We build products that enable you to train anywhere and anytime. You´ll also find our products in fitness gyms or with professional Personal Trainers because this is where quality and durability is a crucial requirement and not an option. Become a Anywhere-Athlete!

Welcome to aerobis!

Our company is located in the beautiful sports city Cologne right next to the German Sporty University. From here, we develop and market training products for Functional Training: meaning equipment for state-of-the-art training of strength, endurance, and coordination.

It all started in 2009 with the development of the aeroSling sling trainer by founder Elmar Schumacher, who originally designed the sling trainer for his own training.

Customers and products

Our customers are gyms, clubs, personal trainers, and athletes that use our products at home, outdoors, or wherever they are located. We call them Anywhere-Athletes. For them and – not totally unselfisch – for ourselves, we design the products of our brands aeroSling, alphaband, blackPack, blackthorn, revvll, and verso360. The production is done in Germany and European neighbour-countries. We set a high value on a short product- and supply chain, and a continuous product optimization based on our customer feedback. We build versatile and mobile training devices that are premium-quality and well-thought-out while providing an innovative design.
