For Immediate Release
Friday, July 10, 2020- GMX7 is proud to announce the addition of twelve-time Olympic medalist, Ryan Lochte to the GMX7 Family. Ryan Lochte is the second-most decorated Olympic swimmer of all time. He is currently the world record holder in the 200 individual medley. As one of the most respected competitors in the sport, he is a natural fit for the GMX7 family.
Lochte’s success began early on, swimming for coach Gregg Troy at the University of Florida. Beyond his collegiate career, Lochte continues to train with Coach Troy. Under his training, Lochte has won a total of 90 medals in major international competitions spanning the Olympics, the World Championships, Pan American Games, and Pan Pacific Championships, including six Olympic gold medals and 39 world championship titles.
“Ryan’s training has been consistent and directed. Due to the X1-PRO’s transportability, our ability to train resistance throughout the pandemic has been key. In preparing to make his 5th Olympics, GMX7 and Ryan are a great fit and will help Ryan accomplish amazing things, I am very proud of Ryan.” Coach Troy on Lochte’s training with the X1-PRO.
As Lochte sets his sights on the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo, he is relying on the X1-PRO to get him to the gold yet again. At 36 years old, Lochte will have spent half of his life as an active Olympian which is a testament to his unparalleled abilities.
“It’s an honor to be associated with GMX7. The X1-PRO is the best resistance training tool I have ever encountered throughout my swimming career. This device is a game-changer for all types of swimmers. If you don’t have one you are falling behind.” Lochte on joining to GMX7 family and training on the X1-PRO.
The GMX7 family believes that Lochte will not only make his fifth career Olympics but that he will stand atop the podium with another gold medal and world record in the 200 individual medley.
“To have Ryan as a member of the GMX7 family is an honor, his undeniable talent and accomplishments are what drew us to Ryan, however, it is his character and integrity that truly sets Ryan apart”. Said GMX7 Founder and CEO David McCagg.
GMX7 looks forward to a long relationship with Lochte that spans well beyond his swimming career.
