Hello GRIPBELL backers,  

THANKS AGAIN for your support in making the GRIPBELL CAMPAIGN such a success! 

We want you to know how much we appreciate your business and faith in GRIPBELL. With your support, we have been able to overcome the many challenges that have come our way. Despite significant delays, we were able to deliver our product to you. We are also pleased to report the recent fulfillment of orders to our international backers despite additional challenges we faced there. As of now, the Kickstarter project is complete with the exception of 94 customers who have not responded to our emails or surveys confirming their address. We will continue to honor these customers’ orders through December 31, 2018, upon address confirmation. 

We want to acknowledge the lack of communication coming from us this last year and we apologize as we spend most of our time using limited human resources and a very small team to focus on stabilizing and now growing the GRIPBELL brand. We want to ensure clear and continuous communication going forward with you our valued supporters. 

We consider our past and original supporters part of the GRIPBELL lifelong community, because most of you were very positive and believed in this project and envisioned the GRIPBELL goal of providing a safe and durable product that anyone could use to workout and enhance their aspirations for a healthier lifestyle as individuals, family or even businesses. 

The world is exploding with low budget franchise fitness centers and a desire to not only look healthy but to feel strong and physically fit for whatever an individual or family may need for their lifestyle. The season of fitness is upon us and we are building awareness of the GRIPBELL brand by attending trade shows featuring fitness equipment and health. We’ve also begun to work with larger clubs in our sales pipelines to allow them to develop their own programming to offer better solutions and classes for their fitness clients. In addition, we are beginning to explore international opportunities where we can partner with local distributors in other countries to sell GRIPBELL on our behalf. Hopefully, this will start to become a reality in 2019. Countries like Germany/Europe and Brazil/South America are exploding with franchise fitness centers and will surely be a targeted focus of our business plan going forward. 

Meanwhile, development of a functional rack to store your GRIPBELL Lights is underway. We hope to have it ready before the holiday! But that’s not all... we are excited to expand our product line in late 2018 with heavier weights due to the valued and overwhelming requests and feedback received from our customers at trade shows as well as online through customer service. 

We will be keeping you informed from time to time to let you know exciting things that are happening with GRIPBELL. 

Lastly, we want to offer you and your friends and family a special discount of 30% off with free shipping. Yes, we do have GRIPBELL Lights in stock as we continue to sell GRIPBELL Lights on Amazon as well as our own www.gripbell.com! This limited time offer will only be good through July 31st on the GRIPBELL web page above. The discount code is KS30 at checkout and Save 30% on your entire order. All orders ship within 1-2 business days.

 Thank you again for your patience, and we hope you have enjoyed the GRIPBELL. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at mbella@gripbell.com
