Los Angeles Giltinis today announced Hyperice, the industry leader in recovery technology and pioneer of percussion, vibration, dynamic air compression and thermal technology, as the team’s Official Recovery Technology Partner to optimize player performance.
The partnership brings Hyperice’s next-generation products and technologies to the pacesetting Giltinis team every day of the Major League Rugby season and in the off season. Together with the performance and training staff, Hyperice will help optimize player performance, improve mobility and speed up post-match recovery. Giltinis players will have access to the full suite of Hyperice Normatec technologies including Hypervolt (below), Hypersphere, Vyper and Venom lines.
“We are delighted to form this partnership with an industry leader like Hyperice, and we will see benefits every day at our training headquarters, on the road for games and on the sideline,” said Giltinis General Manager Adam Freier. “In a league where performing week-to-week is everything, making sure recovery is optimal from injuries and the regular knocks of training and games is integral to success. Our athletic performance staff do a great job and this is a natural partnership to enhance their work.”
Since its inception, Hyperice has centered sports and athletes in its product and technology development and has existing partnerships with major professional sports organizations and teams including the NBA, NFL, MLB, UFC, PGA Tour and U.S. Soccer Federation. The Giltinis agreement marks Hyperice’s second rugby partnership, which is proving to be a strong fit given the intensity, physicality and speed of the game.
“Not only are the Giltinis our hometown rugby team, but they also are an important addition to the League as Los Angeles is widely considered one of the sporting capitals of the world,” said Dan Canina, Hyperice Director of Global Performance. “As the club’s Official Recovery Technology Partner, we are proud to support this great team and to collaborate with the performance and training staff to support player health and wellness with real-time access to cutting-edge recovery technologies both in the training room and on the field.”
The strongest endorsement for the benefits of Hyperice recovery tools are the athletes already in their stable. NFL quarterback Patrick Mahomes, US Open tennis champion Naomi Osaka, NBA point guard Ja Morant and most recently football phenom Erling Haaland are among the high performers who endorse the gains in recovery made possible by Hyperice technologies.
