Story of a Doctor
Our first product was actually invented by a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT). While performing intense workouts, he realized that he needed to protect his hands.
Started Using Workout Gloves
After trying a number of different brands of workout gloves, he was still getting blisters and building up calluses. His hands hurt. His gloves were also retaining sweat and they even began to smell.
Tried Thin Rubber Covers
When he tried using thin rubber covers on his palms instead, he couldn’t get a solid grip. This is when he decided to design something that would work.
The Grip Power Pad Was Born
He invented the Original Grip Pad, which was eventually developed into our current product, the Grip Power Pad.
When it comes to fitness trends, Grip Power Pads are ahead of the curve.
U.S. fitness-equipment manufacturers serve two main markets in the $10 billion dollar fitness market: consumers and institutions. Out of the two, the consumer market is significantly larger, as over 80% of fitness equipment is for personal use.
Since the 1990s, the industry has grown immensely though the rising popularity of sporting goods stores, mass merchants, and online retailers. In general, fitness-equipment specialty stores usually sell what is considered to be the “top of the line” equipment, while general sporting goods stores and mass merchants sell lower and mid-priced lines.
Grip Power Pads were made to appeal equally to all demographics. Our main targets are:
- Casual Gym Goers
- Fitness Buffs
- Baby Boomers
- Cerebral palsy victims, stroke patients and others with grip problems
