How to Create Your Own Personalized Gym Gear

How to Create Your Own Personalized Gym Gear

By Malia Warren
LTD at a Fitness Expo in Sacramento, CA in 2016


This business was founded on custom-made items.


By now you probably know, Lifting the Dream started out with cute gym tanks. Mermaids Don't Skip Leg Day? Yea, that was us.


I remember sitting at a table 5 years ago at that community sale event inside that small church in Olivehurst, CA, I was slingin' gym shirts and thinking I would be lucky if I sold one. Just one.


If you walked in and told me where I'd be today, I probably would've laughed. What started out as a hobby-turned-side-hustle was becoming my business. So when it came time to offer personalized lifting gear, it was pretty much a no-brainer. 


Now we're here, offering some of THE coolest wrist wrap options on the planet. Quite frankly, no one does it like we do. You won't find this level of quality, craftsmanship, and customer service anywhere else. From our impeccable materials to our variety of options for customization, we can make your wrist wrap or belt dreams come true. 


Wrist Wraps

If you want to customize some wrist wraps, this is where you want to be. Our customization options are available for the solid-color wrist wraps only. 


The sizes we carry in the customizable wraps are 12 inch and 18 inch. To find out more about what size is right for you, please check out our wrist wrap HOW to here. As you can see, color options to add to the wrist wraps are limitless.

Plus, if you know there is something you want, but don't quite see it, let us know! The possibilities for printed vinyl is endless, so we can probably find it if you're looking for it. Just ask us!


To add your unique personalization, you'll click the "Personalize It" button (shown below) to see your options. You can get a live preview of what it will look like. 





Please note: We will spell words EXACTLY how you put them into the proof, so please triple-check that spelling and grammar is correct. We do not accept exchanges for customized items.

Customizing your guys' lifting belts, has to be one of my favorites to do. There is more space for creativity!

Something a little different from the wrist wraps too - we can embroider the strap on these! The strap is a great place to have your name or logo embroidered and we have over a hundred different colors of thread to match your desired look. For the backside, you can choose any of our amazing color options or printed pattern vinyl.

This is a great way to make a piece of lifting gear uniquely you. We've printed on every print we offer, everything you can think of - nicknames, business names, all of it!

Now on Sale! We have a ton of different solid colors to choose from including Black, Red, Blue, Olive Green, Purple, Maroon, and Hot Pink.


We can also add embroidery to your strap! You can add a name and selection from a HUGE selection of colors and options. Here are some done in variegated thread, which is a combination color thread with a cool result


If you're not sure you want to decide on a specific color, then design a custom belt! We can literally do any fabric, except licensed characters and sports teams, etc. Check out this video that walks you through how to design one:



Your custom belt will be made right here in Sunny Florida and crafted to your specifications. Custom belts take about 5-7 business days to complete! So what are you waiting for? You were born to stand out, build a custom belt and get something unique today!


Honestly, customizing your LTD gear is my FAVORITE thing to do. Do you have a custom LTD piece? If so, let us know!
