Fred Robinson, Chairman of Body Helix, is a 70-time World and U.S. medalist tennis champion. Robinson also is a U.S. National Grand Slam Title holder in singles and doubles and is an eight-time Atlanta Senior Invitational Pro Tournament Singles Champion. He has been ranked No.1 in the United States in senior tennis in both singles and doubles multiple times during his career. In addition, he was recognized as Player of the Year in the Men’s Open in North Carolina and Florida, and is an eight-time undefeated champion in the ITF World Team Competition. During his 30-year career, Robinson has also received many distinctions such as the Slew Hester Player of the Year Award, the National Gil Roberts Sportsmanship Award and the Best Senior Tournament of the Year Award. Robinson founded Body Helix in 2008 when he observed that compression gear designed for muscle and joint pain/injuries had minimal effect, was uncomfortable, and was decades behind the advances of fabric science. This motivated Robinson to search for a material that would do three things better than any other material in the world of compression: stretch, rebound, and stay in place. His passion for creating high-quality, eco-friendly compression products is demonstrated through his continuous efforts in product research, development and design.

Fred's Favorite Body Helix Products

Posted on August 05, 2019 by Fred Robinson

Body Helix all began because I strained a hamstring and it wasn’t getting any better.  After playing for months with the constant pain, I was fed up!  I had tried everything on the market and came to one simple conclusion: None of these companies cared about me or my pain!  They were all using the cheapest neoprene material and they wouldn’t stay in place.  They didn’t give me much support, they filled up with sweat because of the material, and they were disgusting because I couldn’t wash and dry them!
