Fargo, United States - February 27, 2020 /PressCable/ —

PRx Performance, a fitness equipment company based in Fargo, ND that’s known for its compact home gym equipment, has recently celebrated the 4th anniversary of its appearance on Shark Tank. February 21st marks four years since the founders of the wall-mounted Profile Folding Squat Rack walked away with an $80,000 investment from shark Kevin O’Leary (Mr. Wonderful).

PRx Performance is now a multi-million dollar company, helping thousands of people fit fitness into life. Their flagship product, the Profile Folding Squat Rack, landed them a coveted spot on season 7 of ABC’s Shark Tank.

Founders Brian Brasch and Erik Hopperstad relate their experiences leading up to when they were highlighted on Shark Tank. When they arrived in Florida in January of 2015, they had to compete with 700 other entrepreneurs who were also hoping to stand out with their one-minute pitch.

To Brasch and Hopperstad’s surprise, less than two weeks later, they were called back for the next round and asked to submit an official audition tape. In it, they told the story of where and why PRx Performance was created.

The company is headquartered in Fargo, North Dakota where winters are long and extreme. The idea of giving up precious garage space for a gym was unrealistic, so Brasch and Hopperstad set out to create compact home gym equipment that conveniently folds up and out of the way when not in use. Their solution was the Profile Folding Squat Rack.

The wall-mounted squat rack’s patented folding technology allows people to easily transform their home, garage, or commercial gym space into a multi-functional gym.

When Brasch and Hopperstad entered “The Tank”, Kevin O’Leary was coincidentally in the process of getting his own home gym installed. He happened to encounter space limitation issues that PRx Performance set out to resolve, so the duo’s pitch naturally piqued his interest. Despite being turned down by four sharks, Brasch and Hopperstad managed to secure a deal with O’Leary for $80,000.

While filming was completed in 2015, Brasch and Hopperstad’s episode officially premiered on February 21st, 2016. Their appearance on ABC’s Shark Tank marks a momentous date in PRx Performance’s history as they continue to disrupt the space-saving fitness equipment industry.

Close call in majors can lead to some major recovery time

Mar 28, 2020

KAPALUA, Hawaii — J.B. Holmes played only two rounds in four months leading into the new year. He expected some rust at Kapalua, and it showed when he managed only two birdies in his opening round of 78. He can recover from that, especially in a 34-man field with no cut in the Sentry Tournament of Champions. Far more difficult was getting over his shot to win a major. For two days at Royal Portrush, Holmes played some of his best golf and shared the 36-hole lead. Even after Shane Lowry began to pull away with a 63 in the...

Arizona St, Florida St meet in Sun Bowl without top RBs

EL PASO, Texas — The top running backs for Arizona State and Florida State won't be around for the Sun Bowl. Sun Devils coach Herm Edwards and interim Seminoles coach Odell Haggins can live with those decisions regardless of their effect on Tuesday's game. “Don't forget that these players that are sitting out actually helped these teams get to bowl games,” Edwards said. "Some people get all sideways. ‘Why isn’t he playing?' It's the way of the world. You don't disrespect them. You don't get mad at them. “I'm hoping they'll show up for the game, stand on the sidelines....

Judge: No slander in Alec Baldwin's comments on parking spat

Mar 28, 2020

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin didn't slander a man in interviews about a parking dispute that turned physical, a judge has ruled as dueling lawsuits between the actor and the other driver continue. Baldwin's remarks — including claims that Wojciech Cieszkowski's driving was “really fast,” “really aggressive” and made the actor think his wife and son were about to be run over — were "hyperbole" and "rhetorical illustrations," Manhattan judge David B. Cohen wrote Thursday. “They are words of frustration with someone's driving,” not accusations that amount to slander, Cohen wrote. He tossed out Cieszkowski's slander claim, but his assault...
