Pocatello, ID – Chute Trainer, Inc., www.chutetrainer.com, producer of wind-resistance trainers for golf, throwing, stick sports and more, announce they’ve entered into an multi-year endorsement deal with reigning PGA National Teacher of the Year, Kathy Gildersleeve-Jensen. The relationship allows Chute Trainer to use Gildersleeve-Jensen’s brand and image, while also allowing Gildersleeve-Jensen to feature the product as part of her new and ongoing branding initiative, Golf Results Now, www.golfresultsnow.com.
“This is a breakthrough for us,” said Rory Erchul, one of the four founding partners of Chute Trainer, Inc. “With so many training aids and devices on the market today – especially in golf – Kathy brings validity and recognition to the Golf Chute and Chute Trainer brand. We couldn’t have found a more committed supporter or better representative than Kathy.”
The Golf Chute by Chute Trainer uses natural wind resistance to strengthen the golf swing, prime fast twitch muscle fibers and provide lag, helping to increase swing speed on average of 5 -7 mph without adding weights.
“Wind resistance is not a new concept and is used in many sports to increase strength and speed,” said Gildersleeve-Jensen. “If my student uses the Chute Trainer regularly, he or she will see an increase in swing speed. Another great benefit is the Golf Chute design helps create a larger elliptical swing arc and teaches lag in the golf swing. In addition, the fact that Chute Trainer products are made by persons with disabilities, only adds to my belief in this amazing company.”
Chute Trainer, Inc. will also soon launch other wind-resistance trainers including the Throwing Chute, Stick Chute and Racquete Chute. More information on these products can be found at www.chutetrainer.com.
The Golf Chute by Chute Trainer aims to increase club head speed by an average of 5-7 MPH.
