Cincinnati, Ohio, June 30, 2017—The Dude Perfect headquarters in Frisco, Texas is providing employees with the “perfect” fitness loft to keep the Dudes performing at their peak—fitted out through Marathon Fitness with equipment from Escape.
Cory, Cody, Tyler, Coby and Garrett of Dude Perfect are known for insanely amazing trick shots and entertaining competitive challenges. For their headquarters, they required a unique staff fitness space with both functional and traditional equipment. Marathon Fitness incorporated strength and cardio equipment along with numerous Escape Fitness functional fitness tools including Bulgarian Bags, GRIPRS, Medballs, Slamballs, PlyoBoxes, and Medballs and an Escape Octagon QUAD Frame as the space’s focal centerpiece. All helping the Dudes train for the physical demands of their work plus to encourage employees to workout.
As Dude Perfect’s main product (videos) is built around performing incredulous trick shots, it requires dexterity, strength, speed, and agility—functional fitness. So designing a functional training space for the headquarters was not only ideal but also essential in meeting this challenge.
“From the outset, our main goal was to help the Dude Perfect team train better for the movements of life to support their taking everyday activities and turning them into the fun, almost reality-defying videos,” Christa Davis, President, Marathon Fitness. “It’s exciting to work with a client that even Huffington Post says is one of hottest sensations on the Internet.”
“When you look at the phenomenon that is Dude Perfect, it’s incredible,” said Christopher Eyre, West Coast Account Executive, Escape Fitness. “They are five college friends who took their passion for fun, tied it to their convictions, and created a thriving business. The brand match between Escape and Dude Perfect is ideal---we help clients escape their limits and they go beyond any imaginable.”
