Rated 1 out of 5 by Milliondollarholla Don't waste your money on these.
What a great concept, too bad these things are garbage. I've been looking for a decent pair of weighted work out gloves since I got these. I used them TWICE before the seam started to come apart around the sand section. Within a week I had lost all the sand in one side of the glove. I have to wear these gloves with weights in my palm just to hold them on because of how terrible the velcro is. I actually have to wear elastic bands around BOTH gloves just to keep them on.
Also, they are really nasty. You can't wash these things AT ALL.
Dude, these things are junk. And it's really such a shame, because they could have been so much more!
(PS. These are not the same gloves anyone uses in any of the Turbo Jam videos....interesting...)

Rated 1 out of 5 by LadyRN99 Great idea poor manufacturing.
The idea is great and I would like another pair but hope that I can find one that lasts longer than a month. I have had to repair the ones I received over and over and just cannot justify purchasing the same ones. Sorry Chalene.

Rated 2 out of 5 by justasimplegirl Good Idea. Bad Engineering.
Most reviews I've read are right on spot. They are difficult, if not impossible, to clean. They are not durable, and they move during the workout. The only thing that I found helpful to prevent shifting during the workout was to put the sand/weighted part on my palm.

Rated 1 out of 5 by annemc123 Gloves are uncomfortable
The gloves are too small at the fingers and the wrist. They do not let you pick up things easily, like my water bottle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Peaches Velcro doesn't stick, sand coming out
I would not recommend these gloves to anyone. I love the idea, but they do not hold up. They are difficult to clean and are not durable. After only using them about a dozen times and cleaning them once, the sand started coming out of the gloves during my workouts. Ick. This of course was reducing the weight of the gloves too. The ones Chalene wears in the Turbo Jam video look a lot different... I wonder where I can find those!??

Rated 1 out of 5 by LJN The gloves are too small for guys
Gloves are used by all the guys in the work outs. The sales commercial even promotes that the gloves were part of the workout package. It was dissappointing not to be able use the gloves because they were too small.

Rated 3 out of 5 by gp put them in the dishwasher
You can put the gloves on the top rack of the dish washer then dry them in the sun or in the clothes dryer if you have a rack. This works really well. Otherwise, hand washing works too. My only complait is that the velcro on one of the gloves doesn't stick anymore. I have to use a rubber band around the glove. I wish they had another style, I'd buy them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BoxerGirl HARD TO CLEAN!
I use them for kickboxing workouts, a lot. However, it's next to impossible to keep them clean. I've tried everything and I can't get them to ever be clean. If you never sweat while you work out then these are for you, but if you're normal, get something where the weights are removable for easy cleaning.
