Ja Morant uses the Hypervolt Plus massage gun in combination with the Hypersphere Mini vibrating ball and the Venom Back to perform at his best, reduce the risk of injury, and extend his career longevity.
Realizing the importance of recovery early on, the NBA Rookie of the Year already started using Hyperice products during his days at Murray State University. After he got drafted into the NBA, both sides agreed to take the partnership to the next level and make Morant a brand ambassador.
“As an athlete, proper warm up and recovery are a part of my daily routine. I rely on all Hyperice technologies to make sure I can move and play my best,” the Memphis Grizzlies point guard explained during the announcement of the partnership.
Some of his personal recovery routines will even be included in the Hyperice app so fans can follow along. “I’m thrilled to officially join Hyperice, and teach my fellow players, fans, and future generations about the same technology that I use daily to reach my greatest potential.”
Hyperice CEO Jim Huether was similarly excited to welcome Morant to the lineup of athlete ambassadors that already includes the likes of Blake Griffin, Lindsey Vonn, and Naomi Osaka. The partnership with Morant also comes only a few weeks after the California-based company became the Official Recovery Technology Partner of the NBA.
“Not only is Ja an outstanding human, he’s an exceptional basketball player who inspires the world with his work ethic and undeniable athleticism,” said Huether. “Through his leadership, Ja will help us teach younger fans and future players about the role recovery technology plays in performance and for career longevity.”
