During Season 6 of Shark Tank, mechanical engineer Patrick Whaley pitched his business, Titin, a line of weighted compression shirts and shorts to be worn for the ultimate workout. It’s an added 8 lbs. that’s evenly distributed and doesn’t add stress to major muscles or joints. Some Titin wearers like to heat and/or freeze the gel inserts (which stay hot or cold for about 30 minutes). On Shark Tank, Mark Cuban said he was wary of the “science” behind Titin, but CrossFitter Daymond John took a bite. ($500k for 20 percent.)
Since Shark Tank, Titin has expanded its line to include Titin Tykes which is being used by children with sensory disorders. On Beyond the Tank, John revisits Whaley and tries to convince Whaley to leave Atlanta and bring the business to Manhattan. John is one persuasive guy. Titin has moved its sales, customer service, and marketing address to the Empire State Building (66th Floor, where Daymond John’s office is located). Beyond the Tank airs Fridays at 8pm on ABC.
