Olympic gold medalist endorses AfterSwim, Swim-Fit
June 1st, 2010
NORTH ATTLEBORO, Mass. – Olympic gold medalist Megan Jendrick, who has 27 U.S. swimming records and a world record, is endorsing AfterSwim and Swim-Fit ear protection products from Health Enterprises Inc.
Jendrick uses AfterSwim and Swim-Fit products in her training regimen for the London 2012 Summer Olympics and her participation in the Swim Champions Fitter & Faster Tour, which promotes swimming to children nationwide, Health Enterprises said Tuesday.
"We are thrilled to have Megan promote our innovative new products and ear health across the country. As a role model for children of all ages, her dedication and passion will inspire many to achieve their dreams," Brendan Leonard, president of Health Enterprises, said in a statement.
AfterSwim uses an innovative sponge technology to remove trapped water from ears in seconds, unlike drops and special earplugs that take up to 10 minutes, according to Health Enterprises. "In the past I used ear drops, which were inconvenient and took a long time. AfterSwim is by far the better solution," Jendrick stated.
Swim-Fit is a reusable custom molded earplug that forms to the contour of the ear within 10 minutes to seal out water. "It's amazing how quickly you can have a perfect-fit earplug with Swim-Fit," Jendrick commented. " I always assumed you had to go to a doctor in order to get one made, but for swimmers it's great to have a comfortable, effective reusable earplug available at your corner drug store."
Health Enterprises also noted that Jendrick is the author of "Get Wet, Get Fit," a swimmer's guide to health and wellness. "I do swim events for young swimmers and their families all across the country," she stated. "I stand behind Health Enterprises' innovative products when talking to parents to promote ear health, which is particularly important to swimmers."
