Pau Gasol uses the Theragun PRO and Theragun mini massage guns in combination with the RecoveryAir PRO pneumatic compression boots to feel at his best both on and off the court, even after more than two decades as a professional athlete.
“You have to pay attention to the little details to be your best,” the two-time NBA champion said when asked about his remarkable 22-year long career that included 18 years in the NBA and several international tournaments with Spain. Recovery obviously played an integral role.
“I’ve used Therabody for many years, and I love the results. The products have helped me prolong my career and perform better out there – they just make me feel better overall,” Gasol explained, adding that he has every intention of keeping up his healthy habits in retirement.
At the press conference where he announced his decision to retire from professional basketball, Gasol specifically mentioned that one of the things he wanted to focus on in this new chapter of his life was to invest in companies related to sports and wellness.
As a long-time user of Therabody products, it only made sense for the six-time NBA All-Star to acquire a stake in the company in February 2021. In his function as an athlete ambassador, Gasol joins the likes of Paul George, James Harden, Tyler Herro, and WNBA star Breanna Stewart.
About Pau Gasol
Born on July 6th, 1980, in Barcelona, Spain, Pau Gasol Sáez is considered to be one of the greatest European basketball players of all time. After starting his professional career at FC Barcelona, he was drafted 3rd overall in the 2001 NBA Draft by the Atlanta Hawks.
Gasol was immediately traded to the Memphis Grizzlies and became the first non-US-American in the history of the NBA to be named Rookie of the Year. Following a trade to the Los Angeles Lakers in 2008, the power forward helped the franchise win back-to-back titles in 2009 and 2010.
Gasol also enjoyed success on the international stage, winning the World Cup with Spain in 2006, a total of three EuroBasket championships, and reaching the final during the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games while becoming third in 2016.
