The Los Angeles Rams use the Theragun PRO and Theragun mini massage guns as well as the vibrating foam roller Wave Roller inside of their training facility to help the athletes perform at the highest level and enhance their recovery from the demanding life as a player in the NFL.
With both the Rams and Therabody based in Los Angeles, California, a partnership between the NFL franchise in one of the league’s biggest markets and one of the leading tech wellness and recovery companies in the world only made sense.
So in August 2020, Therabody became the team’s Official Percussive Therapy Partner. Therabody will not only provide the devices, but also help educate the athletes, coaches, and staff on how percussive massage therapy can maximize player performance, make their recovery more efficient, and help prevent injuries.
“I’m thrilled that Therabody is now an official partner of the Los Angeles Rams, providing its players and staff with premium access to Therabody’s education — showcasing the benefits of percussive massage therapy through our Theragun devices and natural wellness offerings, including our new Wave Roller,” said Dr. Jason Wersland, Founder and Chief Wellness Officer of Therabody.
“Supporting professional athletes has always been at the core of our DNA, and I have had the opportunity to work with and treat many of them ensuring they are always primed to perform as well as recovered and ready for the next game.” As part of the deal, Therabody was also the presenting sponsor of the Training Days series, which you can preview below.
“We are excited to team up with Therabody and bring their unparalleled percussive therapy devices and education to our players and staff,” said Jason Griffiths, Rams VP of Partnership Sales, when asked about the partnership.
“We believe their products, services, and support for our player’s training and recovery will benefit our organization on and off the field as we prepare to kick off the inaugural season in our new home at SoFi Stadium.”
One month after the partnership with the LA Rams was made official, Therabody welcomed Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins as both an investor and brand ambassador, later followed by Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith and Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf.
