Rated 1 out of 5 by luvtoworkout Don't buy these!
I had a pair of these and after 1 or 2 uses the sand falls out of them on the creases! So I called beachbody, they sent me a new pair. Great right, no charge, the next pair will be better.....NOPE! They did the same thing, and then I had sand all over my floor to boot! Do Not Buy These, waste of your money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DoctoDish Power Up Tool for More Results
A small add on for more results. I added these to all my cardio workouts. Not only did I instantly get more burn and dripping sweat, but also more definition in my arms and shoulders without doing an upper body work. Free bonus!
Downside is.......Beachbody are you listening!........they don't come in heavier weights, 1, 2or 3 lbs. I went to local sporting goods store and didn't find a similar glove with such ease of use as this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by alinav great gloves
I got these gloves when I ordered hip hop abs ultimate results. They fit me just fine and I have average size hands (I wear a size 7 ring). I do feel like they enhance my workout and help give my arms that little extra help they need to tone up. My only issue would be that I wish they where a little heavier, but for now they suit my needs perfectly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Candi Great additions! Bad quality.
The weighted gloves have definitely made a difference in my upper body, but they fall apart and stretch out so easily! I've been using them for about two years and I've had to replace them 3 times for various reasons. If they were more durable, they would be fantastic, but they are SUCH a pain to replace.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Momto3 Great addition to workout
These came with my Hip Hop Abs order in 2007 and I still use them. No Problems with them falling apart or anything. I almost wish they were atleast a pound each. They are great gloves, that being said, I have small petite hands so they might be tight on bigger hands. Overall good gloves!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by andrsca Seams split after a few weeks
The seams tore apart at the fingers of the right hand. If they were durable, they would have received much better ratings from me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by oceanfrontgirl Too tight, too small
I have had these gloves for 4 years. Still in good shape. I never liked them because they are way too small to the point of cutting my fingers circulation. One side came different than the other so one closes at my wrist and the other doesn't. It feels very clumsy and uncomfortable. Maybe this is not worth for beachbody but i would have imagined that by now someone would have figure this out. My hands are really small, size 5.5 ring. I never returned my gloves because it was part of the gift package i bought with Turbo Jam. Bummer!
I purchased another weighted gloves on amazon.

by Smurfy641 Never workout without them
I wear my gloves every time i workout and I have been doing turbo jam and/or turbo fire for probably 4 years..i have had to replace my gloves once because they did start to come apart and leak but i had used them plenty before that happened. Never had any problems with the velco, it's always held tight. I do notice they start to smell after awhile and i usually just soak them in hot soapy (dawn dishsoap) water for a few hours and then rinse well with hot water and lay flat to dry somewhere outside or near a heat vent in the winter. I like them because i feel like they add intensity to my punches..punching air with my bare hands is like doing nothing. I do believe next time I replace them I will be looking for some heavier ones :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by WeightMeister I received this pair of gloves with Chalean Extreme Deluxe Upgrade. Unfortunately, during my second workout the seams of the right hand glove came apart. Continuing my workout my glove was moving around on my hand, overall distracting me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Turbo Mama Love the gloves
I'm sorry to hear that people have been so dissatisfied with these gloves. I've had mine for about five years. No seams have come apart, no sand has come out, and the velcro still holds through a 45- to 50-minute workout without any problems.
I do wear the weight on my palm because I feel like it gives me better control. I have large hands for a woman and I found them tight at first, but the fabric stretched somewhat after a short period of time and I find them quite comfortable now.
Overall, I've been very happy with the product and the results I've achieved with them. They definitely take a workout to the next level.
