“We are honored to have partnered with GSP on the GSP RUSHFIT program, and to have achieved such an incredible milestone in only our first year is an amazing feeling,” said Jeffrey Sharpe CEO and President for DSS. “We believed when we created and produced GSP RUSHFIT with Georges late last fall, that it was going to be a hit with his fans and fitness enthusiasts around the world, but we did not expect to see this level of success in such a short timeframe.”
GSP RUSHFIT was designed to appeal to the massive global audience with an interest in MMA and MMA training methods as a complete home fitness workout program. GSP RUSHFIT combines three of the hottest fitness trends. The complete program uses various MMA conditioning exercises, intense circuit style training and body weight training for fitness consumers to build muscle, cut weight and get in shape. GSP RUSHFIT is unlike any fitness program available. This program was carefully designed to give the most efficient and effective workout possible at home with minimal equipment. When consumers see how hard internationally respected athlete Georges St-Pierre pushes himself, working out alongside him will motivate and inspire consumers to push themselves harder, and achieve more than they ever thought possible. Georges St-Pierre has dedicated his life to Mixed Martial Arts and is regarded as one of the top conditioned athletes not only in the sport, but also in the world. Fitness fans everywhere can benefit directly from the same commitment GSP has made to his own health and fitness.
