GRIP + GLOW: The Sports Grip/Skincare Brand For Pole Fitness

As seen on Dragons Den: Launched in 2020, GRIP + GLOW is a sports grip/skincare brand – designed for the pole fitness market (and for pole fitness enthusiasts).

The products are designed to aid training, and to promote healthy skin in pole fitness – without the use of heavy oils or ingredients (that would hinder training). Although GRIP + GLOW primarily specialises in pole fitness, the products can also be used for: CrossFit, weightlifting, rock climbing, gymnastics, and more.

GRIP + GLOW started out as a family lock-down project. The brand’s Founder, Lisa Hickey found the move to online schooling quite difficult, and she felt as though she needed a new outlet that would be interesting, and educational.

“I was keen to teach the kids a skill that would be different to school. So, we got to work on formulation for science experiments, we calculated costs, we designed logos, and we created a website,” said Lisa.
