I got my gloves about 6 months ago....
I still remember the day they came in.
I had actually just watched a UFC event a few weeks before.
Right after that I was thinking, "Man! If I was 20 years younger I would love to test myself.
So then, I start considering joining an MMA gym just to get in shape.
But then I remembered I work all the time, and have 3 kids that do all kinds of hobbies that keep me active just with them alone!
On top of that I'm not too sure I want to get twisted up like a pretzel at my age, or punched by some 20 year old kid...
So instead I bought a heavy bag, so I could get in shape and pretend I was GSP or Conor McGregor.
Right after that, I got some gloves from a chain sports store, and within a matter of weeks I had worn those gloves out.
The padding was coming out , they lost their fit and the velcro strap didn't hardly hold. I would like to think and tell a couple close friends that my gloves are worn out because I am just too tough buuut the truth is....
The truth is.... those gloves were crap! They didn't fit well, the velcro strap didn't wrap around and the padding gave way just a couple weeks in.
I went through 3 pairs of these gloves spending about $150 altogether before stumbling on these starter gloves!
Let me tell you - this is now my 'go-to' pair of gloves!
Once you put your gloves on the very first time you will feel like a super hero!
My confidence shot through the roof as I strapped the velcro around the wrist.
The bonus is I have had these babies for 6 months, and they are as good as new!
