The Problem: Sweat & Hygiene
If you're a gym and fitness enthusiast, you know that working up a sweat is a good thing. What's not a good thing is laying in somebody else's gross sweaty puddle. Sure, you can lay a hand towel down to cover the sweat. However, that only works when you lay it on a flat surface. Also, once you pick up the towel, how do you remember which side touched the sweat?
The Gym & Fitness Towel, Reinvented
The Gym Gekko towel takes care of both these problems. It's engineered with over 2,000 anti-slip silicone dots on one side. This ensures that it grips the bench or machine, to maintain a hygienic barrier between you and shared equipment. Plus with its dual sided design, you'll always know where the clean side is, so you can towel off with complete confidence.
The Gym Gekko
The towel is large (24"x15") and absorbent enough for you to wipe down the sweat from your own body, yet is lightweight and easy to carry around. Since it's microfiber, it's also a lot softer than those rough cotton gym towels. We recommend washing with darks and drying on low heat. We will be offering it in four fun colors:
- Gekko Green: Our flagship color
- Gym Gray: Strong but subtle
- Purple Power: Power through your workout
- Blue Steel: Intimidate the competition
Whether you're only a casual gym member or a gym-rat that goes nearly everyday, we have different reward levels for you. The more you can help us out, the more we can return the favor!
Stretch Goal #1: Vote For a New Color (Met Goal)
We did it, the first Stretch Goal of $10,000 was met! As promised, I have opened up a poll to see what 5th color choice I will make available for Gym Gekko backers. Please following this link and vote once per person using this Google Form. This poll will be open through 8:00AM on Friday, 9/25.
Stretch Goal #2: Carrying Pouch (Active Goal)
If we can get to $15,000, I will include a woven nylon carrying pouch for every backer that is receiving towel rewards. It’s perfect to keep your Gym Gekko ready to go, on the way to the gym or wherever you need sweat blocked!
Thank you for checking out my Kickstarter and helping making the Gym Gekko a reality!

Risks and challenges
The biggest risk when importing a product from overseas is finding a manufacturer that you can trust. Luckily, we have a great relationship with a company that also produces yoga towels for us. They are very good with being able to produce high quality products, delivered on schedule. They made us the prototypes that you see in our video and photos.
We are also experienced in all the intricacies of importing, such as overseas shipping and customs.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
