Vancouver, British Columbia – November 30th , 2022: TUT Fitness Group Inc. (TSXV: GYM) (OTC: GYMFF) (Frankfurt: 7PG) (“TUT”), a leader and provider of high-performance and affordable micro gyms, has partnered with Canadian pickleball champion Steve Deakin (formerly ranked 3rd in in the world prior to a recent wrist injury) to promote the TUT Trainer™ micro gym as an effective strength training and recovery tool.
Pickleball is the fastest growing consumer participant sport in the world. According to Sports & Fitness Industry Association data, there are over five million pickleball players in the US alone. 40% of players are under the age of 35. According to Anne Worcester, Major League Pickleball (MLP) strategic advisor, “gone are the days of ‘pickleball’s for seniors,’” The flood of interest has created a huge demand for strength training and ways to improve speed, reaction time and endurance.
“As a professional pickleball player and trainer, I am very excited about my partnership with TUT Fitness and the TUT Trainer™ micro gym,” said Steve Deakin. “The TUT system offers anyone, including elite athletes like myself, a way to elevate their game in record time, across all the key areas. I love that it builds and recruits all the major muscle groups, adding progressive resistance across multiple planes of motion. Plus it’s portable. When I was rehabbing from a major wrist injury, I needed something compact and portable that I could bring with me on the road. TUT fit the bill.”
“I can tell you that there is a huge demand for strength and power training that improves speed, mobility, and endurance on the court, especially with so many new people entering the sport. I run training camps all over North America and I need to deliver the top exercises for pickleball. Integrating the TUT Trainer™2.0 micro gym, and now the TUT Infinite 8™ strength program, is a huge win for pickleball and all sports that require foundational strength, power, and functional movement.”
TUT CEO Rob Smith commented “We’re really pleased to be partnering with Steve and providing an explosive and dynamic sport like pickleball with high-performance, affordable, and versatile fitness training tools. Together, and along with some of the world’s top athletes like Olympic and World Champion sprinter Andre De Grasse and celebrity trainers like Gunnar Peterson, we are promoting and educating the public about the benefits of our patented resistance band technology. Similar to portable massage guns that revolutionized the recovery and fitness space three years ago, we are creating a new category of high-performance, portable fitness equipment, where we set the standard.
“We fill a sweet spot in the fitness market that combines versatility and value. Consumers demand a challenging, full-body workout that maximizes muscle and functional movement, for both high-impact ballistic training and low-impact workouts, like yoga, resistance training, and pilates. The TUT system and the TUT Infinite 8™ strength program deliver all of this, and at a much more affordable price point.”
