The energy created by the response is amazing and everyone enjoys coming up with fun ideas of how they would use the Go-Sak.

Going to the gym is a healthy activity. But when Lori Villarreal, entrepreneur and inventor of the Go-Sak, over-did it and had to use a Tennis Elbow strap, she thought, “Wouldn’t it be nice if that band had a small pouch to store my ear buds?”

Since many gyms have cardio machines that have panels to plug in your ear buds, Villarreal would have to go back down to her locker to get them, breaking the stride in her routine.

She searched extensively for a product that fit her specific need, but found nothing that matched what she’d envisioned. “There are a lot of arm band and wrist band products designed to hold your cell phone,” Villarreal says, “but I didn’t want to carry my phone around on my arm during my workout. I just wanted something small to carry my locker key and ear buds.”

An artist, it didn’t take her long to evolve her idea from concept to a viable product. The Go-Sak wearable zippered pouch is for adults and kids, comes in a variety of colors and sizes and can be worn on your wrist, ankle, forearm or bicep. Every Go-Sak is made in the U.S.A. with consistent quality and meticulous care.

“Whenever I’ve given out samples to see what people think about them, it’s always been a big hit.” Villarreal said. “The energy created by the response is amazing and everyone enjoys coming up with fun ideas of how they would use the Go-Sak.”

Some suggestions include:

  •     Great for the gym
  •     Hold keys, money, jewelry, credit cards, ID, USB drive, or ear buds
  •     Perfect for runners, walkers, cyclists and yoga
  •     Patients in the hospital can keep their valuables secure
  •     Kids can use it to carry keys or money
  •     Additional collar for your dog to hold waste collection bags or treats

But, one idea that has come up over and over is how the Go-Sak would be great for travel. “The Go-Sak is a better solution than a money belt worn on the waist, which can be uncomfortable in a hot climate,” Villarreal explains. “And what if you need something quickly? Do you really want to draw attention to yourself by lifting your shirt in public?”

With thousands of pickpocket incidents happening daily around the world, guard against opportunistic theft by keeping a few dollars in your wallet or purse, the bulk of your money safely hidden under your pant leg.
