Compex named Participating Sponsor of XTERRA America Tour
9 May, 2016
TEAM Unlimited LLC, owners and producers of the XTERRA America Tour, announced Compex will join the 2016 XTERRA America Tour as a participating sponsor.
Compex is the worldwide leader in electric muscle stimulation. From injury prevention and fast recovery to muscle-strength gains and endurance improvements, Compex provides athletes and active people with the most intelligent tool to enhance sport performance. The device recruits specific motor nerves by targeting muscle fibers that cannot be reached through traditional workouts and training, and is designed to help athletes reach their goals by delivering a magnitude of benefits including increased muscle strength and density, larger muscle size, boosted speed, enhanced blood circulation, and faster recovery.
“The XTERRA community is committed to living life to the fullest and the starting point is being healthy and fit,” said XTERRA CEO Tom Kiely. “We feel that part of our mission is to introduce XTERRA friends and family to companies and groups which have great products and services which fit with the “Live More” philosophy, and Compex is surely one of those. Coincidentally, we were exposed to Compex in our early years with XTERRA when they were just entering the USA market and at our events people were lined up to test and experience what was then a “new product.” I tried it myself and was quite impressed with the muscle energy it generated. So, when our friend Brandon Hearn joined Compex we connected and agreed to team up in the future…and we are very happy to welcome them onboard.”
The alliance puts Compex in a prime position to connect with XTERRA’s active, national audience of adventure seekers, weekend warriors and competitors via the XTERRA America Tour of more than 100 off-road triathlons and trail runs held across the U.S.
“Compex is excited to partner with the 2016 XTERRA America Tour and offer their athletes an intelligent training aid to improve their performance,” said Brandon Hearn, Sr. Director of Compex. “Not only does Compex serve as an excellent strength training tool for endurance sport athletes, it allows athletes to flush lactic acid in less than 6 minutes.”
