The Pullup and Dip: Of Necessity and Genius

Necessity makes the genius: Johannes and Michael, two technically creative guys from Munich, Germany met each other within their studies in industrial engineering in Munich a few years ago. As dedicated athletes who love to do outdoor exercises, they tended to use public park constructions for some of their sets, such as doing pullups. But pullup-ready constructions aren’t always around and the effort for searching for them in a local city might be an excruciating task. Eventually they came up with the idea for a device they designed and crafted themselves: The Pullup and Dip! Many months of prototyping were needed, but both of them are persistent and talented engineers and athletes who combine the necessary skills of both worlds to design a solution. As engineers, they can develop their product and as athletes, they can find out what might be useful to customers and how their product can be improved further. This gives them the freedom to switch between their roles as inventors and potential customers/athletes who will use the product. A very convenient mix!
