PRODUCT CARE

HOW DO I WASH AND CARE FOR MY G-LOVES?

Please treat your Gelometrics like you would any other article of workout clothing and clean them after every workout to keep them looking brand new and to avoid smelly bacteria buildup.

We cannot stress the importance of regularly washing them enough. We made our G-Loves out of neoprene (wetsuit material), which is easy to wash. We recommend hand washing your G-Loves in dish soap (Sanex, Dove, etc.) and cold water or wash in a lingerie bag with other like colors. Lay flat to dry after wash. They will dry in a few hours.

If you clean your G-Loves after each use, they will remain odor free, bacteria free, and stay looking newer longer. Sweat attacks materials and breaks them down. They will get stinky if you don’t wash them. Just think of it like cleaning your socks. You wouldn’t leave your socks in your gym bag and reuse them the next day without giving them a proper wash, would you?

If you have neglected to wash them until now, in order to remove odor, please soak the G-Loves for 20-40 minutes in a solution of 1/2 cup of odor eliminator (Sanni Tree, Fizzion, Glade for fabric) or baking soda in 500ml of water. The odour eliminator will neutralize the odor.

If you are looking for a holistic/non-chemical cleaning method, please try this method that has been tested and proven to work: Mix 1/2 tablespoon of Pure Simple Castile Liquid Soap with 3-4 drops each of lavender and tea tree essential oils. The natural antiseptic properties of the oils work great and the G-Loves smell really good after. With no chemicals to absorb into your skin for the next wearing.

HOW DO I CLEAN MY WRIST WRAPS?

The wrist wraps should be cleaned with soap and cold water in the sink. Lay flat to dry.

If you decide to put them in the washing machine, please make sure to fold the Velcro on itself so that it doesn’t snag anything that goes in there with them. Be sure to use cold water and lay flat to air dry.

FAQ’S

WHAT MAKES G-LOVES AND GELOMETRICS GRIP THE BEST?

Our hi-tech silicone ink grip is what makes G-Loves, G-360’s, and Gelometrics the most unique workout G-Loves in the world. The grip is a super tacky non-slip custom engineered silicone ink made and applied exclusively by G-Loves.

We created this proprietary formula and are the only ones that have it. This material is very grippy and will remain this way throughout the life of the product and will work on multiple surfaces. The grip is very thin so that it will not add extra bulk to your lifting.

And because we’ve thought of everything, the material is hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial, and anti-microbial!

WHAT ARE WRIST WRAPS AND HOW DO I USE THEM?

When you lift weights or put pressure on your wrists during weight-bearing activities it is important to protect the wrists from injury. They wrap around your wrist to protect the tendons and ligaments of your wrists and your forearm muscles to help you focus on the target muscle groups when exercising. They keep your wrists straight and decrease the pressure on the tendons of the arms. You can use them for chest press, planks, pikes, push ups, handstands, deadlifts, heavy bicep curls, pull ups, Pilates, yoga, water skiing, using a wheelchair. They are ideal for any activity that stresses the wrists. Our premium wraps provide you with the absolute best hand strength and support possible.

Using them is easy and convenient, and only takes a second to wrap around your wrists. Each wrap has a thumb loop sewn onto it that makes it breeze to place on your thumb and hold into place while you adjust the tightness of the wrap. If you are visual like us, please click here to watch our tutorial on how to put on our wrist wraps.

Our wrist wraps go above and beyond the call of duty! These functional and fashionable wraps give you that extra edge to take your workout to a new level. From the weight room to CrossFit to Yoga poses, wrist wraps protect the tendons and muscles of the hands, wrists, and forearms. Use them alone or with your favorite pair of G-Loves or G-360’s to enhance your lift.

Two bands (one for each wrist) come in a package. They are made with heavy duty elastic and are 7.6cm wide and 30.5cm long. They will wrap around each wrist 1 1/2 to 3 times. You can adjust the tightness depending on how much support you need. One size fits all.

HOW MANY WRIST WRAPS COME IN ONE PACKAGE?

There are two wrist wraps, one for each wrist.

DO YOUR G-LOVES OFFER WRIST SUPPORT?

G-Loves offer minimal wrist support. If you are looking for wrist support, you have a coupe options:

1. Wrist Wraps:

Our functional and fashionable wraps give you the extra edge to take your workout to the next level. From the weight room to CrossFit to Yoga poses, wrist wraps protect the tendons and muscles of the hands, wrists, and forearms. Use them alone or with your favorite pair of G-Loves or G-360’s to enhance your lift. Click here to see our selection of wrist wraps!

2. Gelometrics:

Designed to mitigate wrist pain and hand fatigue during those activities which rely on the hand to support body weight, such as Lagree Fitness, Yoga, Pilates, Spinning and cycling. At the core of this glove is a uniquely engineered silicone gel palm pad and an ink grip that enhance both traction and stability on multiple surfaces. The ergonomic design of the wedge shaped gel pad inside Gelometrics diminishes pressure on the nerves, muscles, and tendons that are bundled into the palms of our hands, thus increasing blood flow and oxygen delivery during exercise.

Please note: Gelometrics are not designed for weightlifting.

ARE YOUR G-LOVES PADDED IN THE PALM AREA?

The Women’s G-Loves and Men’s G-360’s weightlifting G-Loves are lightly padded. The glove is designed to offer protection from hand fatigue and calluses. Our palm pads are thick enough to protect, yet thin enough to feel the weights. It’s all about making that mind-body connection.

The Gelometrics studio G-Loves, however, have a thick gel padding inside the palm area to help mitigate wrist and hand pain associated with weight bearing activities on the hands. They are specifically designed for Yoga, Pilates & Lagree Fitness.

ARE YOUR GELOMETRIC G-LOVES UNISEX?

Yes they are.
