Bala

balaHusband and wife entrepreneurs Max Kislevitz and Natalie Holloway want a Shark to invest in Bala, their line of exercise “bangles,” in Shark Tank episode 1113. Max and Natalie are both yoga enthusiasts who wanted a way to super charge their often rigorous workouts. They knew adding weights to their wrists and ankles would help achieve that goal, but the products available on the market didn’t give them the mobility required when doing yoga; they weren’t very attractive either.

The couple decided to do something about it and created their product: Bala Bangles. Their version of ankle and wrist weights don’t look anything like the typical, utilitarian products on the market today. Bala Bangles look like stylish, albeit oversized, bracelets. They come in a variety of colors and in one or two pound weight sizes. They’re made from cast iron coated with silicon and are both sweat resistant and dishwasher safe.

They got the idea while on a six month tour of Asia and decided to run a Kickstarter campaign to fund initial production. They successfully raised $50,448 back in February, 2018. Now, the products are in over 500 retail locations – including Nordstroms – and on Amazon. A pair of one pound bangles costs $49 while the two pound version is $65. While the products are very popular with the yoga and pilates crowd, the couple likely wants a Shark’s help maneuvering overseas manufacturing and with greater retail distribution. Will a Shark “weigh in” on this product?

Bala Shark Tank Recap

Max and Natalie will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. They’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner, Daymond John and guest Shark Maria Sharapova that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but they’ll need to show them THEY are capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on Bala will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
