Renee, a single mother of three and a member of PSKC Crossfit, had been making all-natural lotions and hand creams for the female members of PSKC.

One day, Dale, a veteran of OIF III & IV, owner of PSKC and co-founder of Team SAR, approached Renee about developing an all-natural first aid ointment for the folks at the gym to use.

In addition, he wanted to create a product that could help the athletes of Team Some Assembly Required (SAR), a non-profit organization dedicated to the growth and expansion of competitive adaptive sports.

Why stop there? Dale though that they should create an ointment that would also be rugged enough so that his old military buddies could use to for the everyday first aid needs you encounter out in the field and on the range.

After some experimenting with the formula, the first Doc Spartan® prototype was made and shared with the members at PSKC. The feedback was beyond expectations.

Since that time that time the duo has grown significantly even grabbing an appearance on Season 8 of Shark Tank in 2017. The team landed a successful deal with Robert Herjavec, who later mentioned that Doc Spartan was one of the best deal he ever made in the history of the show.

The duo have also gone on to be featured in ESPN, Men's Journal, and various other outlets.

With all said and done, the main purpose of Renee and Dale, through Doc Spartan, is to help to their small town fight against poverty and addiction through the compassionate commerce of small town American made, all-natural products.

They proudly manufacture, label, and ship out their products from their hometown in Portsmouth, Ohio. Additionally, they have partnered with a local counseling center to teach fitness to their clients. Upon graduation from the program, they are given training and employed at Doc Spartan.
