VANCOUVER, BC and RAFFLES CITY CONVENTION CENTRE, Singapore, May 18, 2021 /CNW/ – AAJ Capital 2 Corp. (TSXV: AAJC.P) (“AAJ“) today announced that the United States Patent Office (USPTO) has granted TUT Fitness Group Limited (“TUT Fitness Group“) four patents related to its application of resistance band technology to home gym equipment.
TUT Fitness Group’s patent grants cover an industry-first, stackable resistance band technology (called TUT Plates™) which allow the user to increase or decrease resistance loads in calibrated increments of 2, 5,10, 20, and 40 lbs up to 150 lbs of total resistance. The color-coded resistance bands feature sleek design and have been laboratory-tested to at least 12,000 cycles without any performance loss. A starter set of TUT Plates™ weighs a total of only 32 ounces (2 lbs; 907 g) yet provides 150 lbs of total resistance force.
“This is a game-changing technology for the home fitness sector, as our patented TUT Plates™ can replace bulky and expensive heavy metal weights, allowing gym equipment designs to become smaller, more home-friendly and portable, and also reducing shipping costs and installation complexity,” said Aaron Fader, Chief Product Officer for TUT Fitness Group. “We’ve taken Time Under Tension (“TUT”), the ability to create a constant tension (load) and strain to your muscles during a rep, and made it portable for the home gym market.”
TUT Fitness Group currently incorporates its TUT Plate™ resistance bands as the core element in both its TUT Trainer™ Tower and TUT Rower™ gym equipment, which are being marketed and sold into the $9.5 billion market for home gym equipment. TUT Fitness Group is showcasing its technology and OEM licensing opportunities this week at the FIT Summit in Singapore.
“TUT is creating a new category of fit. We are hyper-focused on maximizing the performance that users can get out of their home gyms in an affordable and functional way, and on growing our patent portfolio of stackable resistance band technology,” said Rob Smith, Chief Executive Officer for TUT Fitness Group. “In our conversations with other fitness equipment manufacturers, we know there is tremendous interest in incorporating our small, light-weight stackable resistance bands. By bringing our affordable and accessible technology into the home gym market we believe we can positively impact people’s lives.”
LICENSING, SALES & DISTRIBUTION:
TUT Fitness Group intends to revolutionize the home gym market by licensing its stackable resistance band technology to other equipment manufacturers. Parties interested in resale, wholesale, regional and international distribution and licensing should contact TUT Chief Revenue Officer, RJ Wafer, at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The TUT Trainer Tower and TUT Rower personal gym equipment, which incorporate TUT Plate™ technology, are available now at official online TUT stores:
