Arsenal FC have announced a new partnership with Therabody, a global innovator and creator of tech wellness, to combine their shared passion for high performance, state-of-the-art technology and wellness solutions.
As official tech wellness and recovery partner, Therabody’s devices – including the Theragun PRO and RecoveryPump – will be used across Arsenal’s London Colney training centre and Hale End academy sites to support the men’s, women’s and academy teams and to aid recovery. Therabody will also provide players, coaches and medical staff with best-in-class research through their educational division, Therabody University, to optimise recovery, support performance and promote holistic wellness.
“Providing our players with the best tools to perform at the highest level is our ultimate aim, so we are delighted to partner with Therabody, an industry-leader in this space,” commented Shad Forsythe, Arsenal Football Club’s head of high performance.
“Therabody’s state-of-the-art products have an unrivalled reputation and will play a key role in enabling our players to continually reach and maintain peak levels of performance. Together, we will also explore new ways to support and enhance the overall wellbeing of our players, which continues to be a key priority for us.”
“We’re honored to be in partnership with London’s premier football club, Arsenal, and supporting the club’s mission in providing best-in-class care for its elite players and academy,” explained Dr. Jason Wersland, Therabody’s founder and chief wellness officer.
“The club is committed to supporting the overall health and wellness of its players and fans – both on and off the pitch – and we’re looking forward to developing these programs and protocols.”
Originally launched as Theragun in 2016 by Dr. Jason Wersland, the company evolved and rebranded to Therabody in 2020. Therabody’s industry-leading products and solutions are now relied upon by more than 250 professional athletes and teams in 60 countries across the world.
