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.

Product Recommendations: Shakes and Hydration

Posted on May 31, 2019 by Fred Robinson

Training hard requires you to replenish what your body has lost.  Protein shakes and hydration supplements are a necessity when you train as much as I do.  Typically, I will use something for at least a month before it ever qualifies to be tournament-worthy.  I never (ever) try anything new around tournaments.  When I finish with an event, that's when I will come home and experiment.  This includes both what I put in my body and what I put on my body.  You can bet that I will test anything from shakes and supplements to  shoes, tennis strings, and clothes.  The willingness to experiment is how we evolve and improve ourselves and has always been a big part of my regime.  I am definitely a “tester and a learner."  Read on to see some of my favorite protein shakes and hydration supplements.  [...]
