Vancouver, British Columbia – November 18th, 2021: TUT Fitness Group Inc. (TSX-V:GYM) (“TUT”) announced today that it has opened its first in-store retail experience in New York, in partnership with b8ta stores.
TUT’s high performance and affordable micro gym, consisting of the TUT Trainer™ ($795USD) and TUT Rower™ ($595USD), recently featured in Forbes, will be showcased at b8ta’s New York Hudson Yards store location, which is its flagship store and its most-visited, best-performing location with an average 17,000 store visitors in a typical month. The Hudson Yards retail location is a popular tourist shopping destination, which gives TUT Fitness Group broad visibility to affluent New York residents as well as tourists from all across North America, Europe and Asia.
b8ta’s Founder & CEO Vibhu Norby commented “TUT offers a refreshing vision for at-home fitness: accessible strength and cardio training without distractions. I’m excited to introduce TUT into our world-class modern fitness assortment. Prospective customers will be able to demo TUT’s products at our renowned b8ta Hudson Yards location, and we’ll also be streaming live workouts on TUT’s products from our stores to b8ta.com.”
The custom-built, dedicated TUT Fitness showroom inside of the b8ta store comprises an alcove with two installed demo TUT Trainers and a 60” display screen which runs promotional video loops. Next to each TUT Trainer device is a tablet which offers product details, collects data about the customer, and displays a QR code to purchase the TUT Trainer home gym immediately.
Online customers can plan their store visit by reserving a hands-on demo ahead of time by visiting the TUT Fitness landing page. Also planned are a series of in-store appearances by TUT’s own personal trainers, local fitness trainers, sports celebrities, and other store activations and campaigns. In addition to the in-store experiences, b8ta is also promoting TUT Fitness Group online with a series of podcast-style video episodes on its 24-hour on-air channel.
Best of all, shoppers are able to purchase the TUT Trainer™ and TUT Rower™ for immediate shipping, in plenty of time for holiday delivery.
“Launching with b8ta in the US market made a lot of sense for us given their success with other top-tier fitness equipment brands such as Tonal, CLMBR and Tempo. The hands-on demos allow customers who might be on the fence about their next fitness equipment purchase to experience our high performance and portable TUT Trainer™ micro gym and and TUT Rower™, that take up less than two square feet, using the very latest resistance band technology. Our stackable TUT Plates™ replace heavy metal weights for amazing workouts. Customers can get answers from experienced in-store staff and fitness trainers,” said Rob Smith, CEO of TUT Fitness Group Inc.
