Meet Our Team
The original Tsunami Bar prototype was first developed in 2012 by David Abernathy and Gordon Brown. At the time, Abernathy was a strength and conditioning coach at Clemson University. To take his invention to the next level, Abernathy collaborated with Mike Ramsey and Scott Williams, owners of Williams Strength, a fitness equipment manufacturer that had recently outfitted the university’s West End Zone weight room.
At the time, Ramsey and Williams were focused on creating solid steel products and were understandably skeptical about a flexible barbell. However, they eventually gave in and were glad they did. Seeing the Tsunami Bar in action, named after the most powerful ocean wave, convinced them of its potential. They immediately agreed to complete its development and bring it to market.
The first product of their collaboration was the 45-pound Level 3 flexible Tsunami Bar. Following its launch, they developed a complete line of bars with different flexibilities and weight capacities. The innovative bars quickly gained popularity, and everyone who tried them was impressed by their effectiveness and the undeniable results.
The Wave of the Fitness Future
In September 2013, Ramsey gave one of the new Tsunami Bars to golf pro George Bryan III and asked him to explore its potential uses for golfers. Although the bar remained untouched for months, Bryan eventually picked it up around Christmas and started using it in an unconventional way – bending it to replicate the impact position of a golf swing. Unknowingly, Bryan had begun developing a new training method for the golf swing called Impact Conditioning.
After two years of refining the Impact Conditioning model, Bryan suggested forming a new company focused solely on golf. However, Ramsey and Williams recognized the innovation’s broader appeal to all sports and decided to create Tsunami Bar Sports, LLC, which was officially established on November 17, 2015.
In 2016, George Bryan invited a prominent strength and conditioning professional named Ken Taylor to visit the Tsunami Bar training center. Initially skeptical, Taylor’s doubts disappeared as soon as he tried the bars. Impressed by their potential, Taylor moved his training and coaching business to the Tsunami Bar Training Center a few months later.
Since then, Tsunami Bar Sports has continued to win over countless exercise enthusiasts. Today, their products can be found in dozens of high school, college, and professional team gyms across the country. While the company trains some elite athletes at their facility, they also offer products and training methods suitable for people of all fitness levels.
On January 1, 2019, Tsunami Bar Sports acquired the Tsunami Bar patents and trademarks from Tsunami Barbell, LLC, providing the company with all the necessary resources to take their products and training to new heights.
