How Bear Grips Started
From Idea to Reality
Who are we?
Located North of Boston, In Peabody, MA, We Design Unique Fitness accessories, for Cross Fitters, Gym Goers, Olympic Lifters, Bodybuilders, Power Lifters, Obstacle Course Racers, Athletes, & Fitness Enthusiasts.
We design all of our gear based on the feedback of actual users, we buy material in bulk and actually create the product from scratch and via designs that aids in peak performance and output. We source the highest quality materials and use tester gyms and users to confirm the best types for their movements. We are also mindful of what is available for purchase now from other brands, and dissect how we can improve the function and performance of the product(s).
Most gear bought through online realtors, sporting good stores, or drug stores, aren't made for everyday use and demanding movements. Often times this gear usually hinders natural movements, instead of aiding in performance. the big issue is your usually buying poor quality material that doesn't fit, doesn't feel comfortable, or isn't able to last in movements you perform.
What we do:
We do daily demos & event through gyms and Cross fits throughout New England, and educate user's how gear is made, what it's function, why you should use it and proper size and fit them. To date we have done over 325 demos at various gyms.
We currently have 30 tester gym/boxes, where we send them products in development, and have them test various constructs of the product(s) with different material types, shapes, and construction. Their feedback shapes the product for final production.
Before final production, a product that is ready for production, must last at least 90 days through daily use before making it into production.
Our Beta-tester program currently has 50 individual testers as well, that receive product from phase 1, and keep getting product updates until final production. This program will open to invite another 500 testers in June of 2017 - applications will be available at BearGrips.com - It's free to join!
Our Tester Program currently consist of Division I athletes, Strength and conditioning coaches, top tier athletes, doctors, physical therapist, cross fitters, bodybuilders, every fitness goers, beginners, and many more. Our goal is to have a wide range of "testers" to give us the full scope of a product to be able to make the best quality products on the market.
