YOUTRAINFITNESS, LLC is a Durham, North Carolina based fitness training and equipment company organized in 2009 by a then licensed physical educator and current ACSM Certified Personal Trainer and Certified Exercise Physiologist with over 20 years of professional experience. Specifically, YOUTRAINFITNESS, LLC is the maker of the Pushup Exercise Alignment Mat System (PEAMS®). The PEAMS® is the first and only patented exercise alignment mat system that offers both objective assessment and training solutions.

The assessment solutions that this mat provides are reliability and defensibility. For reliability, it ensures that the participant’s hand-width position is the same every time s/he takes the pushup test and for defensibility, it makes it difficult for the participant to argue or challenge his/her pushup test results because his/her hand-width position is based on his/her anatomical structure (shoulder-width). We have learned from scholarly research literature and conducting physical assessments with clients that the hand-width placement can influence pushup performance (count). We have also observed that even with someone confirming the proper hand-width position, the assessment can still be subjective.

The training solution that this mat provides is it allows for the participant to train for the pushup test in a less than shoulder-width position to strengthen the triceps muscles (to help them become more resilient to fatigue) which may assist the Pectoralis Major muscles during the actual test.

Our ideal business partners are the Military, Law Enforcement, Schools, Organizations and Fitness Professionals who use the pushup exercise as a means to train and assess their participant’s upper body muscular endurance.
