FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I care for my Lifting the Dream Gear?
Lifting Gear requires a little bit of extra TLC (not the singing group) in order to preserve their life.
Neoprene knee sleeves typically have a shelf life of 6-12 months, depending on how often you use them and how well you take care of them. All of our sleeves come with a care instruction card in the package. For information on how to care for your neoprene knee sleeves, check out our Knee Sleeve article here.
Nylon belts should last you for a while, but due to the nature of velcro, the shelf life of your belt depends on how well you take care of the velcro. The No-Slip-Grip buckle is meant to reduce some of the pressure on the velcro strap, but we realize that isn't always the fastest way to get through your lifts, SO we are working on a blog post on how to take care of your velcro on the belt. Information on caring for your Lifting the Dream Weightlifting belt can be found here (coming soon!).
Wrist wraps are durable and should outlast much of your lifting gear, however, just like the belts, velcro is used to keep the wraps in place. We highly recommend keeping the wraps closed when not in use and inside of your carrying bag we include with each order. This will keep the velcro away from the crumbs inside your gym bag... don't worry, we all have them, ha!
Your polyester knee sleeves, knee wraps, and Oly straps, can all be cared for following these instructions here (coming soon!). Until we finish writing the article though, you may handwash them and hang dry if they start to stink!
How do I care for my Lifting the Dream Gear clothing?
Every piece of clothing we design is meant for both in and out of the gym. We highly recommend washing your items turning them inside out and using a delicate setting, or cold water with a low spin. Who even washes with super hot anymore right? But for real, hot water will possibly shrink or fade your garments. Items that have been worn (like in a work out or out to walk your dogs) and/or washed cannot be returned or exchanged.
What if it doesn't fit, can I exchange for another size?
The short answer is -- Yes! As long as it, being lifting gear or clothing or anything you purchase from us, is not worn we can accept an exchange. Please reach out to us within 5 days of receiving the item (per our tracked delivery). We get it, if you don't check your mail often, or get it as a birthday present, we understand. But once an item has been worn (more than just tried on) or washed, we cannot take it to exchange. We have to say this, because it's happened before but please do not return items for exchange that is damaged. This includes odors, stains, tears and pet hair. If we're out of your size, we will issue a store credit in the amount of the retail value of the shirt. Buyer is responsible for return shipping fees.
Before purchasing, please make careful consideration to the description to find out if your item is a Final Sale Item. Final Sale items are NOT available for exchanges.
