Ironman Mattress: IRONMAN® Approved Sleep Technology

Have you heard of the Ironman Mattress?

Instead of waking up feeling like you’ve run a marathon, you can wake up feeling healthy and energized.  How did the IRONMAN begin?  During the awards ceremony at the Oahu Perimeter Relay in 1977, a debate ensued among competitors about which athlete is most fit — swimmers, runners or other athletes. One of the participants, Navy Commander John Collins and his wife Judy, dreamt up a race to settle the argument.

They proposed combining three existing races together, to be completed in succession: the Waikiki Roughwater Swim (2.4 miles), the Around-Oahu Bike Race (112 miles, originally a two-day event) and the Honolulu Marathon (26.2 miles). “Whoever finishes first we’ll call the Ironman,” said Collins. Fifteen men participated in the initial event held on February 18; 12 completed the race, led by the first Ironman, Gordon Haller. His winning time: 11 hours, 46 minutes and 58 seconds.  IRONMAN mattress has gone through a long journey which flourished from a simple idea developed amongst debating athletes into the #1 User-Based Sports Brand.
