OUR STORY / HISTORY

In the summer of 2011, Mark Drucker was a mild-mannered scientist with some friends that trained with Tony’s in the evenings. They introduced them and MD asked Tony if there was anything he ever thought of creating for his training.

At that point in time, Tony was training athletes on a broken treadmill as a way to train enabling the runner to be the motor. He said it would be cool if there could be some sort of resistance you could apply to a manually driven treadmill to help control the runners and also develop power and stride

MD then went about creating a machine that could meet that criteria.

MD emailed TV and said they should come up with a cool name that exemplified its purpose and function. They agreed on the Shredmill since it would assist any athlete in Shredding their competition and help the everyday person Shred their body by offering one of the best HIIT workouts imaginable

Over the next year, they tweaked and optimized this new machine and launched it on the world of athletic training.

They applied for a patent on it mid-2013 and were awarded the patent at the beginning of 2016

They have continually upgraded the capabilities of the machine and now have several models from which to choose from
