Brett Wargo

Porcupine Pad

One typical day, Brett Wargo was watching athletes swinging front giants on bars when he saw a repeating problem - athletes breaking shape too early to avoid hitting the bar. The solution: The Porcupine Pad, a soft, tactile pad with bristles that offers athletes confidence. Brilliant!

Swing with confidence

SPOTLIGHT ON : Leonard Isaacs

Leonard Isaacs

Laser Beam, Pit Pillow

As the mentor to Tumbl Trak’s founder, Doug Davis, Leonard Isaacs helped to develop some of Tumbl Trak’s most pivotal and important products like the Laser Beam and Pit Pillows.

Smart gym staples

Doug Davis is considered our company’s Original Innovator.  

It’s hard to imagine how the trajectory of the sport of gymnastics might have been different without the invention known as The Tumbl Trak.

Although he was the first to create an extra-long open-ended trampoline that made coaches in the early 1990’s wide eyed and inspired, Doug will always share the credit with others who influenced him.  

And so many more...

Tumbl Trak's Research & Development Team work with many Innovators across the globe. New products are being continuously developed with coaches and athletes on a daily basis.
