In only his second year in the league, Herro reached the finals with the Miami Heat – and he wants to make sure that there will be several more finals to come. “I’m putting in that extra work for me and my body,” the Milwaukee, Wisconsin native says about his training and recovery philosophy.
“I was drafted at 19. At 20, I made the finals, but that was just the beginning, which is why I’m upping my recovery game with Therabody. […] It’s very important to take care of my body. Down the road, if I want to be able to play in 10 years, 15 years, I have to be able to sustain my strength and physical conditioning.”
But even in the short-term, looking after himself in the best possible way is integral in a league where the regular season lasts 82 games. “We play one game after another, so being ready for the next game is really important. Therabody is helping me recover and perform all season long.”
With his mindset about recovery and wellness, a partnership between Herro and the Los Angeles-based company only made sense. As an athlete ambassador for Therabody, he joins the likes of Paul George, James Harden, WNBA star Breanna Stewart, and recently retired Pau Gasol.
As for his favorite percussive device, Herro picks the Theragun PRO. “During the game, I have my Theragun on the bench with me. It allows me to stay warm, so when that fourth quarter comes, I’m prepared,” the shooting guard explains.
He also likes the portability of the Theragun mini. “It’s accessible wherever I’m at. I can use it in my bed, I can put it in my bag and take it on the road with me, I can even take it to the game.”
