Read on to learn more about Fred Robinson as a champion and an entrepreneur.
Robinson is a 76-time World and U.S. medalist tennis champion. Robinson is also a U.S. National Grand Slam title holder in both 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 throughout 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. He also holds an ITF World Champion title in both Austria and South Africa.

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.
