Shon Harker, the creator of Stroops was an NCAA Division I (D-I) football player with the dream of creating a better and more optimized training product for professional and amateur athletes.
In 1993, pairing his masters in engineering with his passion for sports, Shon created his first product a lifting strap. This strap was designed to bypass the user’s grip while lifting free weights or with cable machines. By combining the word “Strap” and “Loops” he named this first product “Stroops”. This was the birth of Stroops.
In 1998, Shon Harker was awarded a patent for the first ever sleeved resistance band, other wise known as the “Safety Sleeve Elastic”. This safety sleeve elastic is what we now call a “Slastix” Band. This creation consisted of placing a fabric tubular casing around an elastic tube preventing it from being overstretched and protecting the user if the band was ever to wear out and snap. It was the airbag and seatbelt for elastic resistance training and has since completely revolutionized the fitness world.
This safety focus is the basis for much of Stroops ongoing product development as they continue to innovate and transform fitness products world wide.
