Scottsdale, AZ (PressExposure) May 17, 2011 -- Mighty Grip Inc., a sporting goods distributor, has recently added a new and improved ankle protector to its wide range of products available for pole dancing fitness.
The ankle protectors, which are available through the company's website or select studios, have been designed so that they can be fastened under the arch of a shoe rather than on a person's foot. This feature allows the brace to be worn with platform shoes. The product is available in many different sizes for $21.95.
The company believes it is very important to provide protective gear for pole dancing athletes.
"For a lady or man to do a 4 or 5 minute routine on a pole, you have about 40 hrs of work to produce the routine, and they get pretty ripped up," said Joel Bretan, the owner of Mighty Grip Inc. "Hopefully our products can prevent some of that."
Mighty Grip specializes in pole dancing equipment but also offers products for golf, tennis, and baseball among others. Their original product, Mighty Grip powder, was developed in 2007 and is still very popular today.
Mighty Grip powder is a chalk like substance that can be applied to any area of the body to provide better gripping power. The product is activated by body heat, so the warmer the body, the better the product works. The powder is made from ground paraffin and a few other ingredients. It is packaged in a small bottle that holds 150 applications.
Mighty Grip has become more popular among the pole dancing industry. The company sponsors athletes on nearly every continent, and various events throughout the year.
The company will slowly be phasing out its other sporting goods and focusing solely on pole dancing equipment.
