History of Tyger Mat
The Tyger Mat is the result of years of testing, tweaking, and perfecting the product. Here's how the product grew from a simple idea, to a durable and effective product used around the world.
While training a client using TRX strength training equipment, I realized that there wasn’t an effective and reliable way to measure my client’s level of strength, or monitor their progress over time.
I saw this as a glaring issue for suspension training, as measurement and gradual advancement is the cornerstone of any successful strength program.
I wasn't able to find a product to solve this problem, so I decided to make my own.
