Peloton instructor Robin Arzón uses the Hypervolt 2 massage gun, the Vyper 2.0 vibrating fitness roller, and the Normatec Pro 2.0 compression boots to help her recover from her classes, marathons, and even ultramarathons.
“I’m a long time Hyperice user and their recovery tools and technologies have played a key role as an athlete, trainer and now as a new mother,” the former lawyer explained during the announcement of her partnership with the Irvine, California-based company.
“I’m honored to join the Hyperice team and together we’ll focus on educating new global audiences to the benefits of their cutting edge technologies while empowering more women to move better!”
While Arzón is not back to training as intensive as she used to before the pregnancy, she credits the recovery tools from Hyperice with helping her body deal with a new kind of stress and fatigue after giving birth and enhancing her recovery after workouts.
One of the recovery tools she can not live without is the Hypervolt Plus massage gun. “I swear by it, especially on heavy lifting days,” Arzón told Shape.
“You can get into something as specific as an ankle, or your forearm then of course, larger muscles. My quads are always torn up, especially from sprinting on the bike and doing heavy squats and heavy deadlifts.”
She is also fond of her Normatec Pro 2.0 compression boots. “You could be watching TV, listening to a podcast, doing just about anything… sitting on your bed, talking on the phone, catching up with friends, scrolling on Instagram, all while using the compression to eliminate soreness and aid recovery.”
Joining fellow Peloton instructor Alex Toussaint as a brand ambassador, Arzón will develop motivational and relatable content to her global community, new and expecting mothers, and everyone at any step of their wellness journey.
“Robin shares the same values and drive that unifies our athletes. She’s forward-thinking, a risk taker and will help us cultivate and diversify the global Hyperice community,” said Jim Heuther, CEO of Hyperice.
“Robin’s leadership in the connected fitness space will play a key role to drive continued attention to recovery tools and technologies, alongside our mission to help the world move better.”
