USA Synchro and Rx Smart Gear have announced that the California-based workout equipment manufacturer has been named an official sponsor.
Rx Smart Gear, aka RXSG Fitness, is the industry leader in jump rope design, manufacturing and training. RXSG Fitness introduced the world's first custom-fit cable jump rope in 2009 that emphasized the ideal length and resistance to optimize each athlete's training. Nearly a decade later, RXSG Fitness has become the gold standard at the CrossFit Games as well as the official jump rope to USA Wrestling, USA Boxing and USA Functional Fitness.
"I was ecstatic to learn that jump rope was such an integral part of USA Synchro's dry land training. I couldn't be more excited to partner with USA Synchro and be a part of their medal run for 2020," said David Newman, Founder and CEO of Rx Smart Gear Inc.
"Our National Teams have been using jump ropes nearly every practice as land warm-ups, and we've had drills as part of our team trials to test for keeping tempo, timing and speed," said Linda Loehndorf, USA Synchro President. "We are proud to partner with Rx Smart Gear and are thrilled to begin the great work we have planned together."
