MINNETONKA, Minn. (August 14, 2013) - Shock Doctor, the #1 mouthguard company in the world and leading innovator of performance sports protective technology and equipment, is proud to announce its first ever official “Fitness Partner”, renowned Tiger Athletics. Named “Minnesota’s Best Workout” by Women’s Health magazine, Tiger Athletics’ founders Stacie and Chris Clark will collaborate with Shock Doctor on building awareness of proper fitness techniques and regimens through clinics, regular blogs posts and speaking engagements. Additionally, Tiger Athletics will work with Shock Doctor’s product development team to test new products and to provide feedback from a fitness professional’s perspective.
The Clark tandem at Tiger Athletics boast impressive resumes: Chris is a certified coach and trainer with a degree in bio-mechanics, and Stacie is a certified athletic trainer with over 20 years experience in fitness and athletic development from youth to adult. Together, they founded Tiger Athletics in 2007 with decades of combined experience in the fitness industry, and they have created and implemented their own “Tiger Method” of functional bodyweight training that focuses on stability, mobility and strength for Long-Term Athletic Development (LTAD).
Chris and Stacie have worked with and trained clients ranging from youth to fitness enthusiasts to professional athletes. Minnesota’s own professional teams, the Minnesota Vikings and Minnesota Timberwolves, turn to the Clarks for training programs, as do NCAA teams and individual profesional athletes such as Rex Grossman of the Chicago Bears, Kevin Garnett of the Boston Celtics and Bun Utecht of the Cincinnati Bengals, to name just a few.
Additionally, it was announced on NBC’s The Today Show on August 14, that Stacie Clark was named Women’s Health magazine’s 2013 America’s Next Fitness Star, a nationwide search for the ultimate personal fitness trainer.
Said Tony Armand, Shock Doctor Sports CEO, “This is a huge partnership for Shock Doctor and for Tiger Athletics. We have known the Clarks for years and have always been impressed with their dedication to fitness and the results they are able to help their clients achieve. Their reputation is stellar in professional and amateur fitness circles, and the credibility of their involvement and feedback means that when Shock Doctor launches a new product, it will have been evaluated by two of the most respected fitness experts in the world.”
In the immediate future, both Chris and Stacie Clark will write regular blog posts that will appear on Shock Doctor’s website and through its social media channels. The goal is to offer fitness tips for all levels of athletes to ensure that they achieve proper technique and, more importantly, that they enjoy their fitness experience and develop life-long healthy habits.
The Clarks will also begin working with Shock Doctor’s product development team to provide ideas for new products, and to test products being developed in a real world proving ground with Tiger Athletics’ regular clients. Plans for personal appearances by the Clarks at Shock Doctor trade shows, clinics and promotional tours are also in the works.
