Gorilla Grips was established in 2001 by Hamilton Brower in the USA.  Gorilla Grips UK was founded in 2009 by Russell Pearcy through a combined passion of using Gorilla Grips in Kettlebell Sport and and love for quality craftsmanship.

In 2013 Russell took over Gorilla Grips with the goal of having them made in England.  After much hard work Gorilla Grips is now produced by world famous leather manufacturers based in the West Midlands of England, the heart of the leather craftsmanship in the UK.

Gorilla Grips is now recognised as one of the leading manufacturers of training grips maximising on highly skilled craftsmen and women using only the finest materials, ensuring consistency and quality from 25 years of experience.

Russell Pearcy, the owner of Gorilla Grips is a full time Coach and founder of KB3 Training and dedicated family man with a love for Kettlebell Sport.

The transition for Gorilla Grips from the USA to the UK has been very easy as the previous owner, Hamilton, and I share similar values in having honesty and integrity in wanting to provide the best service we can.

Honesty is always the best policy and I endeavour to provide a good service and a good product and never knowingly do any anything other than this.
