Ever worry about you or a family member contracting a dangerous disease at the gym, during a routine workout, during practice or competition?


Diseases like H1N1, Influenza, Staph, MRSA, Impetigo, Herpes, Athletes Foot, and Ringworm can be easily spread by and between athletes of all ages. Sweaty gear and shared equipment are perfect breeding grounds for bacteria and viruses. Too many athletes have had their seasons cut short, or even their lives ended by contracting infectious diseases during practice or at the gym. 


With the goal of developing a product to clean, disinfect and deodorize exercise equipment, sports equipment and personal gear, Cleveland-owned TOV Ventures, LLC has introduced Germ Blitz™- Attack Germs Before They Attack You™. An EPA approved disinfectant spray that kill 99% of bacteria and viruses and eliminate odors commonly found on athletic equipment, exercise machines and personal gear. The emergence of Germ Blitz could not have come at a better time. 

How we started

Founded in Cleveland by Michael Pasternak a local attorney, an avid recreational athlete and parent of an athlete, he saw firsthand the need for a products like Germ Blitz.


“I realized there were no accessible products specifically designed to disinfect sports equipment. I was shocked, especially given the risk and publicity surrounding pro athletes whose careers were derailed by infectious diseases. ” said Pasternak.


Pasternak connected with Rob Adelstein, a local Marketing and Sales expert and formed TOV Ventures, LLC. The team worked together researching, developing the product, obtaining EPA approval and developing a comprehensive marketing and sales plan . It all paid off because the Germ Blitz product was introduced and sales were underway. Germ Blitz is sold as an Aerosol Spray (for disinfecting equipment such as shoes, gloves, protective padding, and yoga mats and so much more). We've identified a new market category-sports hygiene, and with Germ Blitz, we're poised to serve the market.
