North Dakota sports training company says Kentucky fitness center violated franchise agreement

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, July 3, 2014 10:14 AM EDT

A North Dakota sports training company says a Kentucky fitness center has violated terms of a franchise agreement and should stop using the system.

Acceleration Products Inc., or API, operates performance training centers under the names Athletic Republic and Frappier Acceleration. The system was developed in the mid-1980s by Bismarck physical therapist John Frappier.

A lawsuit filed by API earlier this week accuses Hoops Basketball Academy LLC of marketing the system as belonging to "Acceleration and Fitness Elite" or "Acceleration Elite."

The complaint says the Louisville, Kentucky, center displayed API's trademarked and copyrighted name, logo, slogans and marketing materials as though they originated from Acceleration Elite.

API is seeking a permanent injunction and unspecified damages.

Court documents do not list an attorney for the defendants.
