Home » Episode #495: From Athlete to Innovator-Dan Schreiber’s Creation of WearBands

Dan Schreiber is a dedicated fitness enthusiast and a former athlete who enjoys the simplicity and effectiveness of outdoor exercises. With a philosophy rooted in maximizing training efficiency, Dan appreciates workouts that integrate both strength and conditioning without the confines of traditional gym settings. Embracing the freedom of outdoor activities, he often engages in HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training), plyometrics, and hiking to maintain a robust fitness regimen.

His athletic background has significantly influenced his views on training methodologies. He often reflects on the traditional approach of separating weight training and field drills in sports training, advocating for a more seamless integration of these components. His experience led him to develop Wearbands--innovative training aids that combine strength training with functional movement, ensuring a comprehensive workout aligning with the natural movements experienced in sports and everyday life. In his pursuit of fitness, Dan is always searching for or creating tools that simulate the demands of athletic performance while simplifying the process, enabling him to stay active, engaged, and perpetually ready for any physical challenge.

Regarding pricing and customization, Dan states, "We have different packages, but things start at roughly $100. We have a youth package for $80. We have different resistance levels as well, which when compared to the competition, they try to do the one-size-fits-all and compete on price. If you're going to put resistance bands on a body, it can't be one size fits all. If you do that, it's only going to work for a very narrow range of people. So we create multiple levels." 

Key themes discussed

  • Resistance bands activate entire kinetic chain effectively.
  • Questioning patent protection and promoting marketing over legal action.
  • Valuing fair prices for athletic product results.
