The Indian Cricket Team captain joins the global wellness tech brand as the global brand ambassador and athlete investor.
Hyperice, a global high-performance wellness brand specializing in percussion, dynamic air compression, vibration, thermal technology, mind technology, and contrast therapy, announced Indian cricketer Virat Kohli as a Hyperice athlete-investor and new brand ambassador. Through the partnership, Virat Kohli will work collaboratively with Hyperice to further accelerate the wellness category as it begins its expansion into India and continues its growth throughout the globe. Virat Kohli joins an unmatched list of elite global athlete-investors, including global football superstar Erling Haaland, 4-time tennis Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka, Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes, NBA Star Ja Morant and PGA TOUR champion Rickie Fowler.
The captain of the Men’s Indian Cricket Team and the Royal Challengers Bangalore, Virat has ranked No.1 in all formats of the game during his career and is currently the 4th highest followed sportsperson on Instagram, a testament to his immense popularity and reach.
Fresh off leading the national side against a five match Test series against England, Virat Kohli said: “As athletes, the way we train and compete defines us. Hyperice has provided me with a suite of innovative products that have continuously helped me optimize my performance and recovery, so it was a no-brainer for me to join the team as both an investor and ambassador. Hyperice is on a mission to help people move better around the world, and I look forward to helping tell their story in my home country of India and beyond.”
“Virat is one of the most prolific cricketers around the world and we are honored to have him join Team Hyperice”, said Jim Huether, CEO of Hyperice, adding, “We are on a mission to help everyone move and live better, and Virat is key to helping us elevate the importance of both mental and physical wellness for all people – both on and off the field.”
Hyperice was founded in 2010 by Anthony Katz, who worked closely with numerous professional athletes and teams to kickstart a movement around performance recovery technology. What started as an ice and compression sleeve, has since evolved into numerous product lines and categories including its award-winning Hypervolt, Vyper, Venom and Normatec lines. Earlier this month, Hyperice announced its next evolution into a holistic high-performance wellness brand.
