AUSTIN, Texas – Nov. 3, 2016 – Hyper Wear Inc. (Hyperwear), creator of innovative functional fitness equipment, is pleased to announced its title sponsorship of the 2016 CG Games, a unique and competitive fitness event where athletes from across the nation compete to call themselves the CG Games Champion. This year’s finals will be held November 12 at The Circuit of the Americas in Austin.
Camp Gladiator, the creator of CG Games, hosts fitness camps across the country. Camp Gladiator’s mission is to positively impact the physical fitness and ultimately the lives of as many people as possible. Created by American Gladiator Grand Champion Ally Davidson, in 2008 Camp Gladiator became the fastest-growing fitness movement in the nation.
“CG Games is excited to partner with Hyperwear to offer our CG Games competitors and campers an amazing experience,” said Ally Davidson, Co-CEO and Founder of Camp Gladiator. “We’ve been using Hyperwear’s SandBell fitness sandbags in our workouts for years. Not only does the SandBell serve as a more versatile sandbag free weight that gets great fitness results for CG campers, it also is ideal for outdoor workouts where we have found it to be durable, easy to transport and safe.”
Many of the events that CG Games features are similar to workouts performed at CG camps. CG Games test strength, agility, speed and endurance using Hyperwear’s SandBell for sandbag training workouts. The SandBell is a natural integration into Camp Gladiator camps, offering a dynamic and innovative free weight for sandbag training that keeps up with the demands of CG trainers and campers.
“For Hyperwear’s dedicated team of employees, being a part of Camp Gladiator’s fast-growing fitness movement has been a thrill,” said Dirk Buikema, CEO and a founder of Hyperwear. “The Hyperwear SandBell was created to solve the need for a free weight that could combine the benefits of strength training with dumbbells, slam balls, medicine balls and kettle bells, while adding safety and dynamic movement to workouts. With CG trainers and campers, it has been amazing to see how durable the SandBell is for demanding outdoor boot camp training. I am thrilled to contribute to the success of the fitness movement that co-founders Jeff and Ally Davidson have created.”
