We believe training is much more than lifting weights. We believe progression gives life meaning. That your respect is correlated to your struggle. We believe that our human existence is fragile, weak, mostly insignificant.
To be STOIC is to accept the discomfort. Face resistance. Build your self-respect. Accept the struggle. The Phoenix, the legendary bird of Greek mythology, must die in flames in order to be reborn. The Phoenix signifies self destruction as a path to creation.
To manifest the STOIC philosophy is to demonstrate the mental fortitude required to accept and overcome the resistances faced in life. To rise from the ashes without complaint or defeat.
We stand by our products because they are built to last.
All STOIC products go beyond warranty and we offer a 100% satisfaction guaranteed.
If somehow your item breaks or you don’t like it just contact us.
If you’re running into trouble with your new order not fitting properly, don’t worry!

STOIC equipment is designed for performance, it should not be used for casual activity or light exercise.
In normal cases with healthy adults, we typically recommend first warming up with minimal or no supportive equipment. Depending on personal preference, once the weight loads increase closer to a maximal load supportive equipment is added.
Supportive equipment is a great tool to use in your training to reduce aches, pains, and decrease the risk of injury. It’s also commonly used to strategically load certain muscles where without the use of equipment may be sub-maximally stimulated.
It can be tricky sometimes to get the right size, but the instructions are easy to follow.
For the best results, you’ll want to grab yourself a soft measuring tape and check out the sizing guide for the specific item you are looking at.
Don’t be afraid to reach out and ask for an opinion!
Our knee and elbow sleeves come in pairs and are designed to be worn as a pair due to their supportiveness.
STOIC products are made to comply with competition specs.
For federations that require equipment approval, we are currently approved in USPA, IPL, AAU, and most USAPL local/state meets (see IPF approval below).
Always check with your specific federation’s rulebook and/or competition director to be sure your equipment will be allowed prior to your competition.
Note: If you compete in the USAPL, many competition directors do not require IPF approval.
STOIC has been worn in several USAPL meets. Ask your meet director before arriving to compete so there are no surprises.
The IPF opens equipment approval Jan 2019. Once availability allows, most of our products (powerlifting items) should be approved for IPF competition.
2018 Update: IPF has received, reviewed, and confirmed our products meet their guidelines to be eligible for IPF approval.
Finalizing and contracts are to be completed by September 30, 2018.
Our philosophy is “pro-customer” over “for profit.”
Every day customers write us explaining why they’ve become a customer for life, and how their expectations were blown away.
Stoic, like our other Lift Unlimited brands, follows a true customer-focused model that’s unique in this marketplace.
This means our customers get incredible quality and unbeatable pricing that’s only made possible by our model.

Stoic Training Equipment is Lift Unlimited’s strength training gear line where the focus is on:
We do things a little differently. Stoic products begin their life with rather expensive raw materials. We start with the finest materials, manufacturing methods, and technologies. The extra costliness to us is reflected in our costs to produce the item, or what we call the true cost. Then, to control our pricing to our end customers, the end price, we keep our profit margins thin, our marketing lean, the middlemen out, and our markup low. In the end you enjoy premium products with minimal markups. Because we believe word-of-mouth advertising from our customers is the best kind of advertising, we pass those savings directly back to you.
In the Stoic line you’ll find equipment designed to be worn in training or in competition to protect against injury, enhance performance, and to reduce pain. The Stoic line includes lifting belts, neoprene sleeves, wraps, straps, and more.
