FAQ

 

How do you recommend breaking in my grips?

Breaking in The Natural Grip

Chalk BOTH sides of the grips. Put them on your middle & ring finger. Slightly extend your wrist then attach with tape around your wrist. Break the grips in by doing low intensity KB swings or pull-ups.

Slowly work the grips into a full workout over the next few days. If you have any questions or comments, please contact us at thenaturalgrip@gmail.com.

What is the best way to take care of my grips?

Chalk up your grips for each workout to keep them fresh and dry. Remove your grips by working the finger loops off slowly. Lay the grips flat and let them dry in between workouts. DO NOT dissemble your grips.

Can I wash or clean my grips?

Do NOT wash grips, they will disintegrate if washed. Grips will need to dry out in-between WODs in order to extend their lifespan.

How do I know what grip size I am?

Our grips are handmade to fit based off of your ring finger size. Since sizing is based on ring size, our grips provide a tighter fit than typical leather grips. If you don’t know your ring size, find out here.

How long do the grips usually last?

They will last 3-6 months depending on frequency of use. The Natural Grips are easily secured with your own wrist wraps, athletic tape or our Goat Tape.

Can I buy these grips anywhere other than on the website?

Yes, check out our distributor locator page for more ways to buy.

How do I attach the grips?

The Natural Grips need to be attached at the wrist with either wrist wraps or athletic tape. Using tape vs. wrist wraps is really a personal choice. The grips must be attached tightly so that they will not slip during the WOD. Two to three wraps of tape tightly wrapped will keep the grips in place with no problem. Also depending on the WOD some members might want to use tape and wrist wraps. Each Natural Grip user typically finds what works best for them after a few uses.

Do I need an extender?

We offer an extended version of The Natural Grip. The extended length will add 2 inches to the bottom of your Natural Grip. This is a great option for people that have long palms or prefer to use their wrist wraps with their grips. For a majority of people the extended version is not needed but you are able to add the extender on to any size grips that we offer. For grips size 8 and smaller the original grip is approximately 15.5 inches long without the extender. For grips size 9 and larger the original grip is approximately 17.75 inches long without the extender.

Do you have any sponsored athletes that use your grips?

Yes, we do sponsor athletes that use The Natural Grip.  We are currently working on updating our athlete pages, so please stay tuned.
