Harbinger Recognizes 20 Years with Academy Sports and Outdoors

Date: 9/27/12

 2012 is a milestone year for fitness manufacturer Harbinger as they celebrated 20 years of retail partnership with Academy Sports and Outdoors, located in Katy, Texas.

The first Harbinger product sold was the patented Lee Haney WristWrap glove -- an acclaimed weightlifting glove that still leads in Harbinger’s product lineup today as the Classic 130 WristWrap.  To honor  long-lasting retail partnerships, Harbinger created a special edition 20 Year Partnership package including a bronze statuette of Harbinger’s  legendary Classic WristWrap weightlifting glove and an engraved twenty-year-old Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (paying homage to Harbinger’s Napa Valley roots.)

“We are thrilled to be celebrating this milestone with key retail partners,” says David McCrane, President of Harbinger, “Harbinger remains committed to producing premier fitness products and training gear for sporting goods and specialty fitness retailers.  Longtime partners like Academy understand the value that Harbinger brings to consumers in quality, innovation and performance.  Continuing to exceed consumers’ expectations in products and service is a key factor in Academy’s ongoing success.”

Harbinger was founded in 1988 with the patented WristWrap glove design. Today the company produces a full range of innovative, high-performance  training gear including gloves, belts, straps, wraps, jump ropes, resistance cables, balance trainers and mats.
