TUT Fitness is a Vancouver-based designer and Canadian manufacturer of high-performance and affordable fitness products. The firm is now shipping the second generation of its TUT Trainer™ 2.0 and TUT Rower™. TUT 2.0 features an internationally-patented sleek design, a full hardware revision and key upgrades, with a new graphite finish.
TUT’s industry-first patented resistance band technology (stackable TUT Plates™) is the backbone of the TUT Trainer™ micro gym; a high performance and convenient alternative to bulky exercise machines and free weights.
The TUT Trainer™ provides progressive resistance to any movement and constant and incremental Time Under Tension (TUT) throughout the complete range of motion, while supporting form. Delivering all-in-one functional strength, prehab/rehab and cardio training and more than 300 exercises, the TUT Trainer™ replicates everything you can do in the gym in less than 2 square feet of space, while weighing only 11.6 lbs. Leveraging TUT’s resistance band technology the TUT Rower™ is great for demanding cardio yoga and pilates style resistance training , and weighs only 21 lbs.
TUT Fitness CEO Rob Smith commented that “This is an important launch for us. Our goal and mission has been to bring the gym to our customers anywhere they want to train and to create a high-performance fitness experience that is both affordable and flexible for their lifestyle. The ability to replicate everything you can do in the gym for under $1,000, in less than 2 square feet of space is a game changer for the fitness industry. There is a real power in being able to conveniently access your own personal micro gym 24/7, whether that’s on the road at the office or in your home.
Our technology allows the customer to add progressive resistance to any movement and customize their workout in a way that simply isn’t possible with free weights or other, bulkier, more expensive machines and connected fitness devices. We are now seeing top celebrity trainers, like Gunnar Petersen, and elite athletes and performance coaches integrate the TUT Trainer™ micro gym into their training precisely because of its versatile and intuitive design. This is fundamentally changing the way we exercise by combining healthier movement and strength training modalities.”
“I am really proud of the next generation of TUT fitness products,” said TUT Chief Product Officer, Aaron Fader. “We have been working closely with our community to refine, adapt and show how the TUT Trainer™ and TUT Rower™ can improve the workout experience for our customers. Resistance bands have been a staple exercise tool for years and we are excited to share what we have learned about how they can be used to maximize training performance. We are at the early stages of unlocking a revolution in portable fitness training“.
According to Luiz Balcers, high-performance fitness coach and former South American 110 meter hurdles champion, “the TUT Trainer™ is very convenient and without limitations. It’s unique to other equipment because it’s versatile and powerful enough to be used by elite athletes for ballistic movements and safe enough for my non-professional clients, perfect for prehab, rehab and bodybuilding”.
