Whole-sale (n.) – The sale of goods in large quantities, as for resale by a retailer. The benefits of the GRIPAD workout gloves go beyond the individual buyer. For those companies looking to buy wholesale – in both men and women’s weight lifting gloves – there are a plethora of opportunities and added bonuses when buying GRIPAD gloves in bulk. Here are three reasons why GRIPAD fits into a successful wholesale/retail distribution for your company…
Profit Margin – The Profit Margin measures how much of every dollar of sales a company actually keeps in earnings. The higher the profit margin, the more successful and profitable the company. Gyms, health clubs, sports nutrition laboratories, colleges, Pilates centers, online stores, nutrition stores, PT Certifying Agencies, and Personal Trainers all can attain an advantageous profit margin in by buying GRIPAD weight lifting gloves wholesale and then reselling to their customers. As you go up in number of gloves bought, the per unit price decreases – So, at 250 GRIPAD gloves purchased – for example – the per unit price is only $8.99 per pair of gloves. This is a savings of $8 per pair that you purchase in bulk – And that is eight dollars in savings every pair.
Branding – GRIPAD offers unique options for personal “branding” on your shipment of lifting grips. Here’s how it works… You select a pad color. Follow this up with a print color and subsequent logo color. Approve your final illustration design and watch as the GRIPAD weightlifting grips come tailor made with your logo in big, bold lettering on the outside of the glove – That’s free advertising for your company on every pair of gloves purchased.
Promotion and Marketing Aids – The GRIPAD weight lifting gloves can be of great use as promotional giveaways, in cross promotions, or used as standard retail items at gyms, Pilates centers, online stores, and nutrition stores, as well as for personal trainers. Other options include trade show giveaways, handouts to personal trainers, and use in cross-fit, rowing training, spinning, and many other facets of physical fitness programs. The personalized GRIPAD exercise gloves as giveaways and promotional gifts can be great ways to bolster customer retention in your business. In addition, GRIPAD offers marketing aids for your company in the form of point of purchase display services and customized posters with your logo imprinted upon the marketing materials.
On top of these wholesale benefits, if you refer another company to buy at least 500 GRIPAD gym grip pairs, you will receive 5% off your total purchase with us! Check out the GRIPAD webpage for further information on this great deal.

The word is starting to spread. GRIPAD weightlifting gloves are becoming a household name, people around the country – and world – are finding out first hand the true benefits of the popular gym grip. No blisters, no sweat, no calluses, no odor, no color staining, and no bulky appearance – Just an incredible workout without the detrimental effects of regular workout gloves on the hands and body. But don’t take our word for it.
Here are three more-than-happy GRIPAD customers who’ve been kind enough to share their opinions on the workout changing weight lifting grip…
Kendrick – The New Jersey resident was actually popping veins during his intense workout sessions. Kendrick had bone bruises on his fingers and was in serious pain throughout his lifting sessions. With the GRIPAD weight lifting gloves, though, the pain disappeared altogether. With better finger coverage and more padding than regular workout gloves, Kendrick has taken a serious liking to the GRIPAD lifting gloves. After getting used to the padding, Kendrick won’t lift with any other glove now.
Donna – At 5’-3” and a small frame, Donna doesn’t really fit the prototypical weight lifter image we all have. In her workout life, she was having trouble finding gloves that fit her small hands. She had gone through an extensive amount of money in her attempts to find gloves that fit and were actually comfortable during her training sessions. She tried GRIPAD for the first time and the difference was light and day. Donna bench pressed higher weights – as she says – because she had such a comfortable grip on the bar. GRIPAD worked for her and the sizing ended up being perfect.
Scott – The man knows his lifting gloves… He’s been involved in weight training now going on twenty years. He’s used every glove in the business, from leather to stretch, and even gloves with attached wrist and Velcro wraps. Scott heaps the loftiest praise one can heap upon the GRIPAD weight lifting grips – “GRIPAD is the best workout glove I have ever used!” Comfortable, with great support and a firm grip, Scott’s hands are never sweaty and the glove can be pulled off and on with ease.
The word is spreading. It’s time to get in on the action. Take a look at the GRIPAD site for offers that may just be too good to be true.

Neoprene is the substance of which GRIPAD weightlifting gloves take their powers. A synthetic rubber, Neoprene was developed in the 1930’s as a creation that was almost completely impervious to other chemicals. It was abrasion resistant, chemical resistant, waterproof, and buoyant. Not only that, but it was unbelievably lightweight as well.
The process by which Neoprene is produced involves multiple steps during the manufacturing process. One of the steps is vulcanization, which, in layman’s terms, is the conversion of rubber into more durable material. What this means for the consumer is that Neoprene can be used in any number of products, from wet suits to linings for tanks, and everything in between. Neoprene can even be used as a protective cover for cell phones and to protect wiring and cables.
So, let’s take your hands for a moment. They need protection too, don’t they? And if Neoprene is the go to material for tanks, swimmers, cell phones, scuba diving gear, protective coatings, conveyor belts, hoses, seals, and anything and everything else you can probably think of, doesn’t it follow that GRIPAD lifting gloves can also provide that same measure of protection for your hands? Better than leather – with the ability to breathe and wick away sweat and moisture – the Neoprene infused GRIPAD weight lifting gloves provide true protection against heat, blisters, calluses, odor, sweat, and many other problematic issues athletes and work out connoisseurs will face during their time in the gym. And with GRIPAD’s lifting grips, you won’t look as if you’re working out with boxing gloves. Due to the size and lightweight nature of the material, there is no bulky appearance on your hands as you work out. There are no sizing issues – It’s all about protection with these gloves and none of the other distractions ever come into play.
Your hands are a precious commodity. Their health may actually be the strongest contributor to how long and how hard your workout is… So, do the smart thing and jump on the Neoprene bandwagon. You’ll be happy you did and your hands may just thank you for it – By letting you partake in longer workouts and getting your body the way you want it to look.

We’ve all been told how good it is to include regular physical activity in our daily lives. But do we know the extent of how much we are actually gaining from these workouts..? Here are three surprising benefits of a regular, three to four times a week, course of moderate to vigorous activity…
Improves sex life – Say what? Regular activity can increase sexual drive and satisfaction. A corollary benefit is that men who exercise on a regular basis are less likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction, as compared to men who don’t keep up a regular exercise routine. How’s that for an exercise benefit, guys?
Boosts your immune system and energy level – The benefits of exercise extend to your immune system and energy level. A steady diet of exercise can actually stave off the decline in one’s immune system, due to the advancing of age. It’s been found that jogging, walking, cycling or other aerobic activity in men can slow this process down. As you are strengthening your immune system, you are actually giving yourself an energy boost at the same time, sending much needed oxygen and nutrients to your tissues. In the end, working out on a regular basis helps your entire cardiovascular system to operate at its peak potential while providing immediate gains in energy level for the day.
Exercise combats chronic diseases – It’s not just the immune system that a good workout stimulates. A regular workout can help to lower high blood pressure, curb heart disease, and lower bad cholesterol. A regular workout regimen boosts high-density lipoprotein (HDL) – which is the good cholesterol your body needs – and effectively cuts down on triglycerides. This helps to lower plaque buildup within your arteries and lets you live a longer, fuller life.
On top of all this, regular exercise has been proven to help reduce the risk – or help to out and out prevent – type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, colon cancer, breast cancer, stroke, heart attack, and even arthritis. So get your GRIPAD workout gloves, schedule a workout session three to four times a week, and realize you won’t just be looking and feeling better – You may actually by saving your life with only a slight bit of effort needed.

Every once in a while a workout regimen will become tiresome. You will take a look at your GRIPAD workout and weight lifting gloves in your gym bag and you just won’t be able to muster the energy you need for the task at hand. Sometimes it’s you. And sometimes it’s your routine. To get everything you can from your body and your time in the gym, here are three general tips meant to reinvigorate your workout life…
Pre-workout Nutrition – Carbohydrates and proteins are important additions before and after a workout. A shake 30 to 45 minutes before a workout will increase the flow of amino acids to your muscles during training sessions – These are the building blocks for your muscles. After the workout is complete, a shake following will effectively stimulate muscle growth.
Work Out with a Friend – And choose a friend who has the same goals as you in the weight room or gym and will push you effectively. Working out alone can become somewhat tedious, depending upon your schedule and overall time at the gym. A workout partner will help to liven up the process, provide you with a spotter, and push your competitive spirit forward.
Avoid the Mirrors – It sounds simple, doesn’t it? In a Reader’s Digest article, a study of fifty eight women found that those working out in front of a mirror became stressed and more fatigued after a thirty minute workout, compared to women who worked out without their reflection staring back at them. It’s something that is commonplace in gyms around the country without many people thinking twice about the potential for mirrors to cause a decline in workout production. Try a non-reflective workout your next time out and see if there is any difference in stamina or peace of mind.

Going to the gym can be a taxing thing on your body. From the free weights to the bench press, you have enough to worry about without blisters, calluses, sweat, and other issues taking you away from your workout. Fortunately, with GRIPAD’s workout gloves, you won’t have to worry about a thing. GRIPAD’s got you covered…
Cut down on blisters and calluses – With GRIPAD’s weightlifting gloves, the negative effects of your workout – hard calluses and blisters that can effectively cut short a workout – will no longer be an issue. GRIPAD’s neoprene material within the gym grips will not only prevent the aforementioned calluses and blisters, but stop odor, heat, and sweat associated with other gloves. As Marci Thompson puts it: “I was the first to receive them (GRIPAD weight lifting gloves) here in Iraq Air Force base and I can tell you they were a hit. After 105 pull-ups, and no blisters, my other gym mates were hooked. I would expect orders from them soon.” Marci had it right: To cut down on workout related injury and general soreness, GRIPAD’s lifting grips – in both men’s and women’s sizes – are the key.
Better grip – Have you ever been working out – actually, in mid workout – hands sweaty, never able to get a tight and proper grip on the bar? Fortunately, with GRIPAD’s neoprene material, sweaty hands are a thing of the past. Neoprene keeps the hands dry as the glove provides a tight, non-slip grip on the free weights and bars. Thus, with a firm grip, the workout and the muscle groups are your main focus – Not whether you are tearing up your hands or if the weight will slip, causing injury.
Reduce the pressure on your wrists – Pain in the wrists can be an unfortunate side effect of a workout, no matter the intensity level – It’s just the nature of the beast. GRIPAD’s lifting gloves, with the padded section resting on the interior of your palm, will cut down and effectively lessen the strain on your hands – which will, in turn, lessen the pressure on your wrists – providing relief to both novices and gym rats alike. In the end, the glove is a necessity – not just for bodybuilders and workout kings – but for people looking to maximize their workouts without wear and tear slowing them down.

Two of the most important aspects of weight lifting gloves involve the material of the glove and the fit on your hand during workouts. With GRIPAD weightlifting gloves and their patented design, it’s easy to see why people around the world think GRIPAD makes the best weight lifting gloves. Period.
The Material – Neoprene or Leather?
While leather gloves can be good for very heavy weights, they don’t hold a candle to the benefits of GRIPAD’s neoprene weight lifting gloves. Neoprene is a material that literally wicks away sweat and moisture from your hand. It provides a comfortable and firm grip that works to prevent calluses while also cutting down on heat, sweat, and odor during a workout. What’s best is the GRIPAD weight lifting gloves don’t overwhelm the hand – with just finger loops and the area of your palm covered for protection – so your workout isn’t impeded by a bulky and uncomfortable glove. The GRIPAD weight lifting grips will provide extra protection, while allowing for a stronger non-slip grip and extra movement when you need it the most. With the neoprene GRIPAD lifting gloves, you can focus on what you do best and not have to worry about your grip.
The Right Size – How to maximize your weight lifting potential
GRIPAD gloves come in a variety of colors in both Men’s and Women’s weight lifting gloves, with finger loops meant to easily and tightly secure the glove to the palm of your hands. With the GRIPAD gym grips, there are no sizing issues. What the GRIPAD design allows – that other workout gloves don’t – is the opportunity for your hand to breathe. You will be better protected with the GRIPAD glove while reaping the benefits of better padding, greater durability, and an ease of use. And you’ll be doing all this with a glove that fits very firmly, according to James McQuiston, an avid workout buff, but doesn’t have to cover your entire hand like other gloves to accomplish this feat. For further evidence, take a look at the GRIPAD testimonial page to find real stories of the GRIPAD gloves in use and the true benefits they can provide.
*An added bonus is that 10% of the revenues for the pink GRIPAD’s are donated to the Breast Cancer Foundation.
