Wade Warren, CEO of FitGR, and I ended up meeting through Facebook.FitGR has developed a fairly large web presence, to include Twitter and MySpace, where fans and customers can easily communicate and stay up-to-date with them.
fter getting to know Wade, and learning all about Fit Gear Republic (as well as GASP & Better Bodies) I thought it would be a great idea to spread the word through an interview with Wade.
Nearly everyone who is familiar with bodybuilding recognizes Branch Warren; Branch is the definition of what GASP stands for - extreme, hardcore and intensity:
Q: Thanks for doing this interview, Wade

or locals and visitors to the Dallas, Texas area, it's a great way to actually see and touch the clothes in person.

beauty of the online store is that it brings all products wherever the shopper is.
