Beginning with an idea formulated at a presentation seen by founder, Doug Davis, at a National Gymnastics convention back in the early 1980's, Tumbl Trak, the product and the company, was born. Influenced by coaches like Fred Roethlisberger (John's dad) and Leonard Isaacs, Doug's philosophy of progressions and a minimal spotting approach took root. This philosophy can only work with the right equipment and knowledge. So, Tumbl Trak went to work on developing both.
By 1988, the first version of the Tumbl Trak hit the market. Gymnasts and coaches alike welcomed the concept of a long tumbling surface with an open ended frame. Since then, Tumbl Trak has developed many accessories to the Tumbl Trak as well as many other types of training aids like the Air Trak, Air Floor, Sweet Spots, T-Trainer, Laser Beam and a new line of mats using "Smart Mat Technology".
Over the years, Tumbl Trak has built a strong company and reputation. Innovative product development has kept the company ahead of its competition. When developing a new product, we always try to look at things from the coach's point of view, asking "What would we like to have as a training product to help our athletes gain new skills and confidence?" With the right equipment and stations, athletes can learn skills more quickly and easily, and can do the repetitions required to master skills. Using an aggressive marketing approach to promote these concepts, the company introduced its new slogans, "More Reps, Less Stress" and “Train Smart”
Tumbl Trak is also known for its superior customer service. From high quality products, a knowledgeable and friendly sales staff, to quick delivery times and service after the sale, Tumbl Trak will go above and beyond to satisfy its customers' needs.
In 2014, long time employee, Stacy Finnerty, purchased half the company and became CEO. Stacy’s focus has been to strengthen Tumbl Trak’s overall brand and customer service. Tumbl Trak headquarters are located in 10,000+ square foot office and warehouse in the heart of Michigan. We also have an office in Port Townsend, WA and in October of 2014, we opened an office and distribution center in the UK.
Each year there seems to be something new, imaginative, innovative and exciting in both products and methods for teaching. Sometimes there are several things! And, everything reflects high quality that helps clubs succeed in doing their jobs with the students/athletes making them look good and more successful as a business.

I feel that the Tumbl Trak products are not only beneficial as training aids (for athletes), but are also vital for injury rehabilitation and may help prevent overuse injuries.

Tumbl Trak has got it figured out. With the level of gymnastics seemingly increasing by the day, gymnasts need ways to do high repetitions, without punishing their bodies. Tumbl Trak equipment is the way to go.
