We sure do! We use DHL and UPS but if you’re in a more exotic country (we’ve had French Polynesia before) then we’ll find another option. All shipments are tracked so you can check the status once it leaves us.
Blood Flow Restriction/BFR/Occlusion Bands
What is Occlusion Training?
Blood-flow restriction entails wrapping a cuff around either the upper arms or thighs to reduce the amount of blood that can enter the muscles and leave them. The goal being the restriction of venous return while still allowing arterial flow by strategically wrapping the topmost portion of your limbs. By restricting the veins and not the arteries, blood can keep pooling into a working muscle and it stays trapped there

Is the image on the belt designer the final version?
No, we try to capture as many requirements as possible before we handover to our inhouse designer. Once your order comes through, we’ll get to work on the design and send you a mockup for review afterwards. We don’t start anything until we get your final approval so don’t worry if you want to change your mind!
What kind of materials do you use?
We only use the finest analine leathers which are upholstery lever quality and the best suedes. For the inner part of the belt we use vegetable tanned leather. Other manufacturers use cheap split leather inside of their belts which affects the longevity. For the metals, we use stainless steel unless colour options are selected.
Do belts really take 8 weeks?
That’s a general timeframe although we aim for sooner. Other companies offering ‘Custom Belts’ simply print onto existing poor quality belts. Our custom belts are made from scratch.
What logo design options are possible?
Although we aim to do most designs, if your image is very complex in shades or detailing, we wont be able to reproduce it with embroidery. Think 2 shades per colour or checkout the many examples on our Instagram. For example we wouldn’t be able to replicate a pencil sketch of a lion but a lion emoji would be fine!
Do belts ever take longer?
On rare occasions yes. If we are not happy with the work or some tidying up is needed we’ll ensure this is resolved prior to sending. We would rather spend a little longer than send you a subpar belt.
Is it possible to expedite my order?
On rare occasions we can do this but we have a large backlog, expediting one order may delay another order so we try and be fair to our customers. Rest assured we’ll make it as soon as possible to the highest standards?
What is Edge Coating?
This option allows the painting of the edge of the belt, so without this you would see the natural leather. Some prefer to see the materials inside whilst others prefer to coordinate the colours.
How do I measure myself?
We recommend measuring around the navel and advise against going off your waist size. For custom orders we can also do custom sizing. Don’t worry if you’re in the middle of 2 sizes, simply mention it in the Anything Else box and we’ll ensure we make it to your spec.
What colour options are available?
Check out our belt designer, we have a ton of options in both leather and suede that we are constantly adding to. We also have some camo options that look very cool!
Why are the levers more expensive?
Most of our competition use pewter levers. These are cheaply made and have a tendency to crack. We use stainless steel, in the unlikely even you have an issue with it, we’ll replace it.
Why should I order from Gunsmith? What makes your belts different?
We can sing our own praises all day! Take a look at our Instagram, IFBB Pros, Strongmen, WFBB Pros, Olympia winners all use Gunsmith Fitess.
Can I cancel my order?
If you cancel your order prior to getting our mockup, that’s not an issue. If you cancel your order after we sent the mockup, we’ll refund you minus £20 for our design efforts. However, once you give approval to go ahead, belts CANNOT be cancelled.
How can I reach you guys if I have questions?
Hit us up over email, Facebook or Instagram and we’ll get back to you right away.

These Gunsmith Fitness BFR Occlusion Training Bands have a really strong easy to release and tighten clasp and durable elastic bands.
My partner has used them on his legs and arms on small and large weights. He found the pump you get is so much greater.
Never thought of using before but well worth the try.
