‘Beyond the Tank’ preview: The Natural Grip, Q-Flex, and Titin

Beyond the Tank -Tonight, “Shark Tank” may be in repeats, but that does not necessarily mean that this hiatus means the end of “Beyond the Tank” just yet. There is another episode aired tonight on ABC, though what makes this one stand out in particular is that this is one of the installments of the show that was actually filmed back during the first season. With that, there are clearly some businesses out there that have been waiting for an incredibly long time to see their segments on the show air. We may not think that everyone one of them is a home run, but the majority of them are edited in such a way to make you feel inspired. It’s almost a show about learning!

As the synopsis below indicates, tonight’s episode features primarily products to get you in better shape, or at least make you feel better. Consider this in some ways to be “Beyond the Tank: Fitness Edition.”

“Robert Herjavec decided to invest in Ashley Drake, an army captain from Louisville, Kentucky, and The Natural Grip, her line of custom-made handgrips, due to the passion and drive she displayed during her season six pitch. However, when Ashley meets with Robert, she shows another side of herself that Robert fears could hurt the company’s future.

“Daymond John is excited about the growing success of Patrick Whaley’s weighted compression-gear company, Titin, which he invested in after his season six appearance. Daymond is determined to convince Patrick to move his company from its home base in Atlanta, Georgia, to Manhattan, New York, but Patrick is worried that the move could weaken his relationship with his coworkers.

“While sales for 13-year-old Andrea Cao’s massage product, Q-Flex, have increased since Barbara Corcoran and Mark Cuban invested in the company during season six, Q-Flex is still working out of Andrea’s garage in San Luis Obispo, California. Hopefully, a visit from Barbara will help Andrea craft a plan to support Q-Flex’s growth.”

This is one of those shows where we really cannot offer up a lot of insight into the effectiveness of these products (fitness isn’t our forte); with that being said, all of them have shown at least some degree off success, and Q-Flex in particular has been one of the more high-profile products from the Cuban portfolio that we have seen on the show.
