fitfighterSarah Apgar hopes to snag a Shark for FitFighter, her fire hose training weights that mimic firefighter training, in Shark Tank episode 1204. Apgar spent two years in the Army as a marketing and business development analyst for the Army Corps of Engineers. When she got out, she joined the volunteer fire department in Huntington, NY to get exposure to the camaraderie she  missed in the army.

FitFighter is a series of free weights made from repurposed fire fighter hose and steel pellets. The weights, coupled with the training app, comprise a rigorous training regimen modeled after the training Sarah did as a firefighter. The  FDNY Fire Training Academy and San Diego Fire Rescue Academy use her program and weights. Once she gained acceptance from the firefighting community, she decided to make her products and training available to the general public.

Prices for the actual FitFighter Steel Hoses vary from $65 to $205 depending on size and weight and number of weights in a set. Sarah is also certifying instructors and has a deal to distribute through Sorinex, a leading gym equipment manufacturer. A portion of every sale goes to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Tower Foundation, which helps wounded veterans and first responders and their families. Sarah wants to grow both her training business and sell a lot of weights. Will a Shark see this as a good fit?

FitFighter Shark Tank Recap

Sarah will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. She’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec and recurring Shark Daniel Lubetzky that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but she’ll need to show them SHE is capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on FitFighter will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
