TITIN is a line of hypergravity-exercise clothing. The tight-fitting shirts and shorts are embedded with gel weights. Mechanical engineer Patrick Whaley is the inventor of TITIN, and the one who landed a deal with Daymond John on Shark Tank in 2014. It wasn’t an easy negotiation. Investor Mark Cuban was wary of the “research” behind the product but Daymond was determined to prove the other sharks wrong.
Since Shark Tank, TITIN has expanded its line to include Titin Tykes, “which allows kids with sensory disorders to have deep-pressure therapy, but it’s designed around their own bodies and allows them to feel like a superhero,” says Whaley. “Instead of feeling alienated, they can feel idolized.” TITIN is sold online and will soon be sold at Dick’s Sporting Goods.
