Patrick Mahomes uses the Hypervolt massage gun and the NormaTec Pulse 2.0 Leg Recovery System to accelerate his recovery time and improve longevity in a physically demanding league where the average career length is just above three years and taking hits is just part of the job.
“I’ve used Hyperice technology throughout my career as an instrumental part of my overall training and recovery routines to ensure I’m performing at my peak on game day,” the Super Bowl LIV Champion and MVP told the NFL about his new role as a brand ambassador for Hyperice.
In fact, Mahomes was so convinced of the positive effects the recovery products had on him that he decided to make a financial commitment as well. He took part in the Series A funding round, thereby acquiring a stake in the California-based company behind the Hypervolt massage gun.
“Hyperice is the leader in one of the fastest growing health and wellness categories, recovery technology, and the alignment with Patrick only accelerates our growth trajectory,” said Jim Huether, CEO of Hyperice, during the announcement of the partnership.
“Patrick is the most dynamic and versatile young talent in the NFL. As impressive as he is on the field, his investment in and advocacy for Hyperice shows his forward-thinking approach to future successes off the field,” Huether added.
About two months later, the company would also become the Official Recovery Technology Partner of the NFL, news that was obviously well received by Mahomes. “This Hyperice/NFL partnership will allow an even greater level of accessibility for athletes to recovery technology, which will enhance player performance and elevate the game.”
About Patrick Mahomes
Patrick Lavon Mahomes II was born on September 17, 1995, in Tyler, Texas. The son of former MLB pitcher Pat Mahomes, he played both baseball and football during his sophomore year at Texas Tech University before deciding to focus solely on football.
He was selected by the Kansas City Chiefs with the 10th pick overall in the 2017 NFL Draft and gained his first experience in the NFL backing up Alex Smith during his rookie season. The following year, Mahomes became the team’s starting quarterback.
With 50 touchdown passes and 5,097 yards, he joined Peyton Manning as the only player in NFL history to throw for 50 touchdowns and more than 5,000 yards in a single season. Mahomes later led the Chiefs to their first Super Bowl appearance and subsequently championship in 50 years.
