My name is Jimelle Teter. I am a group fitness instructor and personal trainer and have been certified through many different organizations such as NEITA, AFAA, etc. I am also a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and Karate and an instructor in martial arts and have been involved in this for 15 years. I own my own business where I teach a cardio kickboxing class called Turbo Kick and a cardio kickboxing bag class at various gyms in my area. We use the Ironwear weighted gloves for my Turbo Kick class. I have used many brands of weighted gloves and have found Ironwear fitness gloves to be the safest glove on the market. The bendable weight distributed evenly around the glove makes it much safer to throw the punches with correct form. The nylon mesh glove is very durable even through many washings.
I would & do recommend this brand to all my clients, in fact I ordered them for my kickboxing class which consists of 35-45 people. They love the glove because it intensifies the workout and helps them burn more calories! I am ordering the gloves again for the newcomers that want to get more out of their workout.
