Olympian Jendrick endorses AfterSwim, Swim-Fit
NORTH ATTLEBORO, Mass. Olympic gold medalist Megan Jendrick on Tuesday announced her endorsement of Health Enterprises’ new AfterSwim and Swim-Fit products.
AfterSwim utilizes an innovative sponge technology to remove trapped water from ears in seconds, unlike drops and special earplugs that can take up to 10 minutes. “In the past I used ear drops which were inconvenient and took a long time; AfterSwim is by far the better solution,” said Jendrick.
Swim-Fit is a reusable custom molded earplug that forms to the contour of the ear within 10 minutes to seal out water.
Jendrick will be using both AfterSwim and Swim-Fit as a regular part of her training regimen for the London 2012 Summer Olympics and her participation in the Swim Champions Fitter and Faster Tour that promotes swimming to children across the country.
“We are thrilled to have [Jendrick] 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,” stated Brendan Leonard, president of Health Enterprises.
