Experienced gym-goers know what happens when we grip heavy bars, handle climbing rope, or do multiple pull-ups without protecting our hands. After the first few intense sessions (or even the first five minutes), palms can easily become abraded or bruised. And even if we work out hard enough and long enough to develop calluses, it isn’t always pleasant to shake hands with a person whose palms are as rough as leather. Damaged skin can peel, blisters hurt, and every wound leaves us vulnerable to infection. For competitive or serious athletes, even small injuries can compromise performance.
Gloves can help protect an athlete’s hands, but at a cost. Gloves are bulky and uncomfortable, and they may prevent the skin from breathing and cause a build-up of heat, sweat, grime, and bacteria. When we’re engaged in a demanding activity that requires full focus and intense concentration, the last thing we need to worry about is sweaty, uncomfortable hands and a constricted range of motion. Hands should be unrestrained, skin should breathe naturally, and our minds should be fully engaged with the challenging task before us. Gloves play no role in this equation. So how can an athlete protect her palms from direct contact with bars and rough surfaces?
The answer: Gripad. If you’re ready to give a hundred percent to your workout, but you cherish your hardworking hands and want to protect them, peel off the heavy gloves and slip on a Gripad. The Gripad’s neoprene layer wicks sweat and moisture away from your skin, and the soft, durable pad stands between your hands and your workout, safeguarding your skin without getting in your way. When you’re finished at the gym, slip off the pads and head back to the office to shake hands with your new client. The Gripad provides a lightweight, durable form of uncompromising protection.

We’ve seen what the Gripad weightlifting gloves can do; from rowing to Pilates, and many things in between, the Gripad gloves are as eclectic as they are loved. The gloves can be used for weightlifting, free weights, Yoga, spinning, and much more. They aren’t just for weightlifters at the gym – The gloves are so much more. Here are two final workout crazes that the Gripad gloves go perfectly with…
CrossFit – CrossFit is a carve your body out of muscle sort of a deal. Its strength is in its diversity of exercise methods. There is weightlifting, power lifting, gymnastics, rowing, plyometrics, medicine ball training, sprinting, and more all rolled up into one nice little ball. It’s a unique fitness program that involves lifting strange objects, climbing rope, running, jumping, and other strenuous but calorie burning activities. With all of the strange items to be lifted and the amount of strain that will be put onto your hands and wrists, it is imperative that you have protection. The Gripad weightlifting gloves are the perfect addition to this rigorous and intensive training. Without blisters and calluses, you will be able to focus on improving endurance, shedding pounds, and creating muscle with the CrossFit program.
Ellipticals – Elliptical machines at your local gym help to simulate walking, running, and climbing without having the same high impact issues involved as if you were actually doing those things outdoors. Coming into being during the early 90’s, the elliptical machine allows for the user to keep his or her feet on the pedals with no high impact reverberation as found in running, or even walking. The machines, thus, decrease the risk of impact injuries by providing low impact exercise for the user. And again, the Gripad gloves will provide you with a sweat proof, non-slip handhold that will improve your performance without ruining your hands.
The Gripad gloves are not just for weightlifting. They truly are so much more. Check out Gripad’s website and buy a pair today!

GRIPAD offers both men and women’s workout gloves for the casual gym attendee to the fitness guru looking to add a few more pounds of muscle to their already stacked frame. And just like men, women need to protect their hands and body while working out. So here are three reasons women need GRIPAD gym grips just as much as men do…
Allow you to lift heavier weights and do more reps – GRIPAD women’s weight lifting gloves allow the user a firmer grip and a lessening of pressure on the wrists due to the padded nature of the glove. Women who use gloves can work out longer, do more reps without feeling tired, and can generally lift more weight by comparison. When the workout is done and the results are showing, it will be nice to still have the feminine, untouched hands from before you ever picked up a dumbbell. With GRIPAD lifting grips, this is not only a possibility – It’s a reality.
The GRIPAD gloves can be used in activities other than weightlifting – Weightlifting gloves aren’t necessarily just for weightlifting. They can be used for elliptical work, Pilates, rowing, yoga, spinning, and much, much more. And with other gloves – such as those made of leather – you can’t wash them due to shrinkage, leaving a smell and odor that doesn’t come off after your workout. With the GRIPAD gloves, they effectively wick away sweat and keep moisture away from your hand. They are much better than leather – Not only for weightlifting exercises, but for cardiovascular work as well.
Protect your hands from forming calluses – The weights at the gym can be taxing on anyone’s hands. With the chrome and iron dumbbells available at many gyms – as well as the ridged weight bars for the bench press and any number of other exercises – the same thing that helps you get a grip will also cut into your hands and cause irritation to the skin. Women’s hands are usually more susceptible to sore hands, blisters, and calluses than their male counterparts. With one million nerve bundles in your hand – and after one round with the GRIPAD gym grips shielding you from pain and discomfort – you might never go back to bare-handed weight lifting again.

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.

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.
