"I love this product. I bought them for weight training (bodybuilding lifts such as bent-over rows, pullups, mainly heavy back movements where grip assistance is needed) and have since transitioned them to use in Crossfit. Specifically they have helped with any hanging movements where I need to kip. The difference is night-and-day. I've had them close to a year with 6 months of Crossfit on them and they're still going strong." - Gary Davidson - Little Rock, AR
"In 1988 I had an accident. I got my arm pinched off between a piece of equipment and the ground. The equipment was on a crane. While I was reaching under it the cable snapped. I spent six weeks the first time in the hospital. I had to sign paperwork for the first six surgeries giving them permission to remove my arm. With many miracles taking place, they saved my arm. For the next two years I had 18 more surgeries. At the end of two years I have a artery from my leg in my arm, rods down the center of both bones, bone from both hips, muscle and skin from my back, skin from the front and side of my thigh. I know it must sound like it looks bad but it looks really good after all. My main problem is before my accident I weighed 195 and worked out all the time. The doctor said me being in such good shape saved my arm. My brother got me up and working out as soon as I could. I am missing some muscle in my forearm and when I make a fist my hand rolls upward. Not being able to pull has made it hard to get bigger. I think it was in 2002 that I found Versa Gripps in a magazine. I bought a pair and my life has changed ever since. When I left the hospital I weighed 132, at 6'3" I looked horrible. Now I weigh 225 with a 8% body fat. Versa Gripps has been a godsend for me. I am 50 now and my family says I look 35. Thanks so much! I will continue to buy Versa Gripps forever!" - Randy Herrera.
"I have grip problems, and so I can't lift heavy on back days, and some shoulder, leg and arm lifts are more difficult. WIth these gloves I can lift SO MUCH MORE WEIGHT because they bypass my hand strength, or lack thereof. It's awesome. I feel like I can blow through this weight plateau and move along in my training. LOVE them, and they're PIIINK!!!" - Jenn - La Jolla, CA
"These things are a plus to any person who lifts heavy weight. They take wrist support to a whole new level. Would recommend to anyone that lifts often" - Jeremy
"Thank you for making such an amazing product. I purchased my first pair of Versa Gripps over 9 years ago and have been nothing but impressed with your product ever since. I have had to replace my grips 3 times over the past 9 years and one of those times was because I left them in the locker room. Your product has been nothing but positive. This last pair of grips I bought has lasted almost 3 years with us 4 days a week. I just wanted to say thank you for the quality and consistence of your product. I will forever be a faithful customer and have referred everyone I can to your product. Again, thank you!" - Randy Koch
"I struggle with tendinitis from my shoulders to my fingers on both arms. I have not let this stop me from working out, but it does hinder how much I can lift and cause me great pain while I lift. I received these grips 1 month ago and they are amazing. I use them on every exercise that would have me use my hands. The stress that is taken off from gripping weights has given my arms and hands a new life." - Destiny L. Keeler - Vancouver,WA
"Awesome product, Wonderful service, First class strap folks. I have endless good things to say about this product, I have added more inches to my BICEP since I bought the VERSA GRIPPS PRO. Whao!!! AWESOME stuff, I WILL NEVER USE ANOTHER STRAP EVER. This VERSA GRIPPS is the KING OF ALL WEIGHT-LIFTING STRAPS.If you've ever driven a ROLLS-ROYCE OR A BENTLEY you'll never want to drive anything else, THATS THE FEEL I GET WITH MY VERSA GRIPPS GUYS!" - DPOP
"I participated in Olympic Power-lifting for four years in High School, Trained with D-1 Football Coaches, and trained in the military for 10 years. These grips are excellent for all muslce groups but earn double their due on "Back Day". Any pull or row is made to save your fore-arms from tiring and your hands from slipping. My back muscles have never been so defined as they are now since I have been able to better target them with these grips...They are also a must for pull ups or any type of clean and dead-lift. They are by far the easiest grips to use, and also the most time efficient when using them. As a fitness enthusiast, they were worth every penny for me." - Caleb H.
"I am a professional athlete and have used countless straps and hooks. Versa Gripps are by far the best on the best on the market. The non-slip surface and single wrap strap make it fast and easy to get the wrist/grip support needed. They last a long time (about 2 years with 5-6 day/week use). I do recommend getting the little protective bag with them...helps protect them and increase the life of them. I have also found a damp rag will keep the straps clean and a small dab of anti-bacterial gel on the wrist pads keep them fresh! GREAT product!!" - Jason C. Powell - Natural Athlete
"You guys make the absolute best weight lifting straps around. I've seen similar knock offs and they are just not the same. I'm on my second pair of Versa Gripps in 13 years, and that's only because my first pair was stolen a few years back. Unbelievable product, worth every single penny. I remember 13 years ago my ...db rows went from 100lbs per arm to 150's in a matter of a couple months using your straps. Thanks!" - Jay Michel
"Last spring, I finished my collegiate career as an athlete at the Division 1 NCAA level. This past semester, I found a new passion -- bodybuilding! It has given me a way to relieve stress, relax my mind, and build confidence that helps me succeed in the daily challenges that we all experience. I just recently bought my first pair of Versa Gripps Pro Series, and after one back workout, I decided to never train without them! I found that they allowed me to lift more weight and for more reps than I had all semester. When I use to typically fail at 6-8 reps, I was doing 20-30 pounds heavier for 10-12 reps using my Versa Gripps. They have allowed me to keep better form, lift heavier weights, and for more reps than I had all semester. Thank you for creating such a wonderful product that is so beneficial to anyone who wants to get the most out of their training!" - Jeremy
"I have been in the gym most everyday for about elevan years. I have competed as a natural body builder and I have used Versa Gripps for nearly ten years. I am a maintenance supervisor at an apt complex which means we are constantly moving appliances, washers/dryers, refridgeraters, stoves etc. I use my Versa Gripps daily to help move these hard to handle beasts up stairs sometimes three flights. Versa Gripps help me tremendously every day. Thank you for making such an innovative product, the best part they are made in the USA! I am on my third set in ten years, and have given sets as gifts. Even my old pairs keep up the great work and we (my team) appreciate your products. Thanks Again!" - Aaron Herrgesell
"Thank you so much! Your company is amazing! It's so nice to know that there are still companies out there that have such good customer service and are so caring. Believe me I will let everyone at the weight room know how awesome you are along with anyone I cross paths with"! - Andrea Dettling
"I was hit by a car while riding my bike two years ago. I shattered my femur and my thumb. I rehabilitated myself at a faulous bootcamp and a year later began competing. I could not hold weights in my left hand due to loss of thumb strength. I discovered Versa Gripps, trained all year and came back to win 3 pro master cards and two pro cards in FitBody and Bodybuilding in one show...went to WNBF worlds in NYC the following week and placed 6th in women's Heavyweight Bodybuilding. I could not have done it without Versa Gripps. I always have them with me so that I can continue to lift heavy. I am planning on competing in 5/6 WNBF shows next season. I feel I can inspire others who may have an injury, body imbalance, or handicap to overcome." - Erin Duggan
