Dave has been passionate about sports his whole life. He grew up playing mostly soccer, hockey and golf and gradually got into Martial Arts. Martial Arts took over and training became somewhat of a healthy obsession…
‘’Training to not get get my ass kicked in front of all of my friends is amazingly motivating’’ he says. Training daily became routine and after eventually climbing the ranks as a professional MMA fighter, he increased his training routine to multiple sessions a day.
Work, train, eat and sleep, pretty much sums up his schedule over the last decade and he learned various martial arts such as: Jeet Kune Do, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Boxing, Muay Thai, Kick Boxing and Wrestling. In other words, there was always a sweaty gym bag with either a sweaty Gi, boxing gloves or sports equipments of some sort. Sports equipment is not cheap and he noticed a common problem regardless of what sport he was training…unwanted odors! The smells got pretty bad it could take a whole day before reaching a shower a room to air out the used sports equipment. Any hockey players who has forgotten to empty their hockey bag will agree…it gets nasty!
He started using natural deodorising sprays and quickly noticed that these unwanted odors are a universal problem for all athletes and these sprays were a quick solutions that generated a lot of interest to anyone that smelt them.
Being passionate about marketing and sports, Fight Fresh was born and seemed like a great way to combine what he is passionate about while helping people who also have active lifestyles.
