Founded in 1988 by fitness enthusiast and entrepreneur David McCrane, Harbinger swiftly became the brand of choice for weight lifters worldwide. It began with an innovative Wrist-Stabilizing Glove. Originally intended to mitigate wrist injuries for skateboarders, McCrane quickly realized the benefit of the Wrist-Stabilizing Glove for the strength training industry. Teaming up with 8-time Mr. Olympia bodybuilder Lee Haney, they pioneered Harbinger as the source for high-quality and carefully engineered gloves and belts. Since then, Harbinger has expanded into strength training accessories, including wraps, straps, and bar grips. With proprietary technology and advanced design, Harbinger drives the category and continues to deliver new and innovative products. In 2013, Harbinger introduced functional fitness products, including weight vests and speed ropes, designed to enhance fast-paced workouts. Today, Harbinger Fitness is part of a 29-year-old organization, Implus LLC. The Implus Fitness & Wellness Division manages category-leading brands renowned for superior quality, innovative design, and heritage. Implus is proudly found in over 75,000 retail outlets across North America and in over 70 countries worldwide.
