On July 1st, 2022 we’re increasing prices on select items (and decreasing prices where possible). We want to be transparent as to why.
We started Bala on a napkin in 2018, when we sketched out ideas for what would eventually become Bala Bangles. We'd grown tired of an ultra-serious, exclusionary fitness industry. And sought to make working out feel a bit less like work; to design products as fun as they are functional. The unfortunate reality is that the cost of doing business is historically high. From raw materials to inbound / outbound shipping, surging prices have forced our hand. To maintain a fair margin – to continue to offer beautiful, functional fitness equipment – we'll be increasing prices on select items and decreasing prices where possible. While our main goal has not changed, may other factors have:
• Increases in cost of goods (especially steel prices)
• Increases in inbound and outbound shipping costs
• Increases in wages to support our team and our partners’ teams
• Closures at our manufacturing facilities due to COVID-19
Bala simply doesn’t exist without you; our community of #BalaBabes. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
