Fitter International Inc (Fitter) & Reactive Training, LLC, announced today further expansion into fitness clubs and physical therapy facilities, bringing the Core-Tex reactive training device to professional and recreational athletes and patients throughout Canada.
Launched in 2009 by recognized fitness expert and best-selling author Anthony Carey, M.A., CSCS, MES, the Core-Tex combines dynamic strength, cardiovascular endurance, razor sharp reaction, flexibility and balance into one design, creating the optimal training environment. The Core-Tex is specifically designed to provide a multi-dimensional reactive training challenge. Its patented design allows the base to move like no other training environment and it is the only product on the market that simultaneously tilts, slides, and rotates at an unrestricted 360 degrees, allowing for an almost infinite number of movement combinations. The Core-Tex is used in physical therapy clinics, athletic training facilities, hospitals, universities, professional sports teams, private studios, and health clubs worldwide.
The recent handrail and heavy-duty base addition to the original design, along with a new platform for evaluation and coaching tools, have enabled Core-Tex to further grow in the rehabilitation and sports markets. The current model also offers an option to add a second handrail, which is beneficial for the rehabilitation facilities and older populations.
Over the last two years, the company has partnered with Dallas-based Cooper Fitness Center, the Training Station in Alameda, California, Purlife Fitness Center and Hive Performance in South Florida, among others. In addition, several collegiate and professional sports teams added Core-Tex to their athletic training facilities, including the University of Georgia, along with several MLB and NFL teams.
In addition, the company plans to launch a Golf-specific program to assist golfers in improving rotational mobility, strength and aid with injury prevention. This will entail taking the unlimited rotational component and reproducing golf movements that will increase range of motion and club head speed.
The Core-Tex is currently available in 17 countries through distribution partners and can be purchased in Canada directly from Fitter. For more information on Reactive Training and Core-Tex, visit
