Chase Claypool uses the Theragun PRO and Theragun mini massage guns as well as the PowerDot 2.0 Duo muscle stimulator and the RecoveryAir PRO pneumatic compression system to help him perform on the field and set himself up for a long-lasting career in the NFL.
“I first started using Theragun when I was introduced to it at Notre Dame,” Claypool remembers about his days as a college athlete for the Fighting Irish. “After a couple of hard days at training camp, it was a lifesaver for us. Now in the league, I use it every day.”
Now a Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver, he also thinks that the benefits are not only physical. “The best part is, Theragun also helps my mental preparation… because I believe if you’re physically ready and feeling good then you’re going to be mentally ready and feeling good.”
To help others, especially non-professional athletes, see the importance of taking care of their body even at a young age, Claypool joined fellow NFL wide receivers DeAndre Hopkins, DeVonta Smith, and DK Metcalf as athlete ambassadors for Los Angeles-based Therabody.
“I think the most important thing to note is that Therabody is not just for professional athletes, it can truly help everybody – and that’s what Therabody is making possible. By becoming an athlete ambassador for Therabody, my hope is to help spread that message to everybody”.
“[…] Self-care and recovery shouldn’t just be for the professional athlete,” Claypool emphasized. “I am proud to represent a company that is helping me feel my best, but I also love that they are looking to help everyone feel that way so they can do what they love.”
About Chase Claypool
Born on Juli 7th, 1998, in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada, a highlight reel brought Claypool enough exposure to receive several offers from US-American colleges. During his four years at the University of Notre Dame, he caught 150 passes for 2,159 yards and 19 touchdowns.
Nicknamed “Mapletron” because of his similar stature to former Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin “Megatron” Johnson, Claypool was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers with the 49th pick overall of the 2020 NFL Draft.
During his first season and despite there being no regular offseason or minicamp, he became the first rookie since 1970 to catch or run for 10 touchdowns in his first ten matches.
