(SANTA ANA, CA) - GolfGym, a leader in golf fitness since 1987, today announced that the company has entered into an agreement with Bonfit America, Inc., manufacturer of the original bristle tee, Brush-T, to globally distribute their entire line of GolfGym fitness products.
Bonfit America, Inc. has an extensive network of distribution. The highly successful and popular Brush-T is being sold to online dealers, traditional retailers, on and off course pro shops, leading sporting goods stores, big box and specialty stores. The saturation of retail penetration of the Brush-T helped Bonfit develop their massive retail channels.
GolfGym has enjoyed a retail presence both in the United States as well as internationally. However, the company partnered with Bonfit to utilize their immense retail relationships and grow the business. According to GolfGym President Ken Pierce, "The 2009/2010 GolfGym strategy was to expand the overall business. Critical steps were made to accomplish this. GolfGym aligned itself with one of the elite strength, conditioning and biomechanics coaches on the PGA Tour, Coach Joey D. They repackaged the entire line specifically for retail with the focus on Joey D and have now entered into a distribution agreement that will ensure global expansion".
"Pauk Krok, J. Michael Wuestemann, and the Bonfit staff are enthusiastic about the GolfGym fitness products. We're confident their shared passion, expertise, and experience will prove to be a vital component in the company's success," added Pierce.
For over 20 years, GolfGym has been the leader in golf fitness, helping average to professional golfers prepare their bodies for the rigorous requirements of the game of golf and the golf swing. Today, the fitness trailers on the PGA, Champions, and Nationwide Tours are stocked with the complete line of GolfGym products. Professionals from all three tours use GolfGym products before and after they play golf.
All GolfGym products include an instructional DVD featuring personal coaching and techniques from Coach Joey D who is a pre-eminent biomechanics PGA coach. Joey D is best known for coaching Vijay Singh during a seven year period that was highlighted when Vijay became #1 in the world. This influential coach shares with the GolfGym purchaser the same exercises as he employs with the professionals on Tour. His impressive roster of PGA Professionals he coaches, includes Pat Perez, Jason Dufner, Charlie Wi, Tom Pernice, Jr., Jason Gore, Ryuji Imada and Chez Reavie.
Many professional golfers use the portable GolfGym products outside of the fitness trailer, either inside their hotel rooms or at home, to reinforce proper swing patterns and body movements necessary to generate the most powerful swing possible while preventing injury. In fact, Zach Johnson carries a PowerSwing Trainer in his tour bag.
