ANAHEIM, CA —June 27, 2019— BarXbell Inc. today announced the launch of its highly anticipated GRIPBELL Commercial set of handheld weight-based fitness products that offer an all-in-one full body workout for just about anyone. In addition, GRIPPBELL has signed a Preferred Partnership deal with Celebrity Sweat, considered the leading brand of health and wellness for celebrities.

The company released the original GRIPBELL Light in spring 2017 with weights from 3 to 12 pounds; the new Commercial line offers weights from 30 to 90 pounds. GRIPBELL Commercial will be used by gyms, CrossFit programs, and the military – specifically developed for heavy-lifters and professional athletes.

“We are thrilled to announce the much anticipated GRIPBELL Commercial set,” said Ronald Obray, CEO of GRIPBELL. “Our customers and partners asked for heavier weights and we are delighted to deliver them as promised this year.”

Celebrity Sweat is championed by high profile celebrity trainers Billy Blanks, the creator of Tae Bo®, and top trainers Eric the Trainer and Jake the Trainer.  The company showcases behind-the-scenes looks at celebrity lifestyles and their approach to health and wellness, featuring the best of professional sports, music, Hollywood, and entertainment personalities.  Celebrity Sweat operates fitness centers, provides inspirational and motivational talks on health and wellness around the world, manages a variety of high-profile sporting and entertainment events, and is now entering their 4th season on Amazon Prime, reaching over 100 million households.

“We are very excited to partner with GRIPBELL and launch an integrated workout with Tae Bo creator Billy Blanks,” said Lisa Levine, CEO of Celebrity Sweat. “Together we are developing the first full length Tae Bo fitness workout using the full range of GRIPBELL weights.  It will be ready to go live on our channels in the fall.”
