HARBINGER - Serving the fit and motivated

Harbinger fitness products have been helping fitness enthusiasts reach their goals for many years now. The company is known to be very innovative in its product designs and development. They are an industry leader in fitness accessories and have a wide range of products which include, but not limited to work-out gloves, belts, straps, grips and mats.

Our health-conscious staff at L.A. Splash Magazine recently had the opportunity to test out some of their new products and came away very impressed with the quality, comfort, fit and ease of use.

Harbinger's new FlexFit All Purpose Training Glove is designed for athletes who require the maximum range of motion in a minimal glove design. Although it is made of leather, it is amazingly 100% machine washable and dryable. The TechGel Comfort Pads on the palms are designed to mold to your hands to give you a comfortable grip while protecting your palms. It has an adjustable wrist closure for a custom fit. Their NoSweat lining also works to wick moisture away from your skin. The gloves come in a range of sizes from S-XXL. After a few work-out sessions with these gloves, the quality and comfort of them was truly evident.

Our staff members also had the opportunity to try out a pair of gloves specifically designed for the athletic woman. The Women's Training Grip is an all-around training and lifting glove. This glove also features the TechGel and NoSweat technology. The unique "Comfort Tech" fabrics remain supple and comfortable throughout its use, even after repeated hand washing. The adjustable wrist closure design also provides a truly customized fit. These come in sizes S-L and in a very pretty periwinkle color as well. For the traditionalist, they are also available in charcoal/ black.

For those of us who like to lift heavy, we no doubt are familiar with lifting straps that are used to strap our wrists to the barbell, dumbbells or machines. Harbinger makes a padded lifting strap for the serious lifters. Having used traditional non-padded straps for a long time, I personally was very appreciative of the 5mm foam padding on the inside of the straps that made heavy-lifting less chaffing on my wrists.

Boxers and kickboxers (as well as everyone else) rejoice! Harbinger's Speed Rope is a dual-corded PVC jump rope that has molded handles with steel bearings. This enables a very smooth swing motion and eliminates rope stretching. The 9ft. length can be shortened to fit fitness enthusiasts of all builds.

If weight-training or jumping-rope is not your thing, Harbinger also offers mats for both Pilates and yoga. These mats can also be used to work on your abdominals or on your flexibility (you do stretch after each and every work-out, don't you???) and after a hard work-out (you did work-out hard, right???).

The Durafoam Mat is a rolled, lightweight

portable exercise mat that is 24" wide by 72" long and is almost ½" thick. The double-sided, non-slip surface grips the floor to prevent injuries and the moisture resistant skin is easy to clean. It even comes with integrated straps to make carrying and storing it a breeze. Harbinger's other Stretch Mat is 23" wide by 66" long and 3mm thick and is great for extended length full-body stretching or yoga.

Look here for additional reviews of Harbinger's products in the future because we are very excited about their WristWrap Bag Glove (for boxing and kickboxing bag-work), Adjustable Ankle/ Wrist Weights, Training Ball and Exercise Cables.
