VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/07/12 -- Digital Shelf Space Corp. (the "Company" or "DSS") (TSX VENTURE:DSS)(OTCQX:DTSRF) is pleased to announce that its innovative GSP RUSHFIT (www.gsprushfit.com) ultimate home workout DVD fitness series began retailing in Australia in the first quarter of 2012. The GSP RUSHFIT workout series stars the Montreal-based Mixed Martial Arts ("MMA"), World Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre ("GSP").
"After having the Philippines recently begin the retail distribution of GSP RUSHFIT, a country where GSP has tremendous popularity amongst consumers, we are now pleased to see retail distribution begin in Australia in early 2012, another country where not only GSP has a massive fan base, but also Mixed Martial Arts," said Jeffrey Sharpe CEO and President for DSS. "We hope to continue to add more countries to retail GSP RUSHFIT around the world over the coming months and year."
GSP RUSHFIT is represented in over 90 countries around the world through DSS's global distribution agreement with Northern Response (International) Ltd.
GSP RUSHFIT was designed to appeal to the massive global audience with an interest in MMA and MMA training methods as a complete home fitness workout program. GSP RUSHFIT combines three of the hottest fitness trends. The complete program uses various MMA conditioning exercises, intense circuit style training and body weight training for fitness consumers to build muscle, cut weight and get in shape. GSP RUSHFIT is unlike any fitness program available. This program was carefully designed to give the most efficient and effective workout possible at home with minimal equipment. When consumers see how hard internationally respected athlete Georges St-Pierre pushes himself, working out alongside him will motivate and inspire consumers to push themselves harder, and achieve more than they ever thought possible. Georges St-Pierre has dedicated his life to Mixed Martial Arts and is regarded as one of the top conditioned athletes not only in the sport, but also in the world. Fitness fans everywhere can benefit directly from the same commitment GSP has made to his own health and fitness.
