Starpool shares the same values: thanks to this synergy, the collaboration that we have created as Wellness Partner allowed us to support the athletes and the technical staff thanks to the effectiveness of dry floatation, especially in terms of athletic preparation, mental focus and muscle recovery.
“Basketball is the only sport that tends to the sky.”
This famous quote by Bill Russel about his idea of basketball also illustrates very well the athletic preparation of players: a complex activity that requires an explosive combination of strength, balance and agility.
Today’s basketball is characterized by faster and faster rhythms and requires great ability in predicting the perfect execution of an athletic movement and to develop the best technical response to the external stimulus. That’s why rest and mental preparation– considered as a real training of tenacity, clarity and determination on the court, take on a key role in the training programs of each athlete.
This is the reason why, since 2019, the team has chosen Zerobody for the recovery and athletic performance of the palyers.
What does the coaching staff think about it?
“We have definitely remarked how the reduced perception of soreness and muscle stiffness in the sessions with Zerobody improves the feeling of recovery and favors both relaxation and mood. This benefit is particularly important for athletes who have a hard time getting rid of physical and mental tension. We use dry floatation also to improve the quality of sleep and the recovery due to muscle relaxation after long trips or close together events. This is also helpful to facilitate the work of the physical therapist and massage therapist.”
“The use of Zerobody for our athletes (and staff members) aims to favor the recovery from close together trips and competitive appointments, with good results. The chance to recover the hours of sleep that are lost for the abovementioned reasons is excellent. This product also allowed us to create a good synergy with the post-activity physical treatments.”
What do the athletes think about it?
“Thanks to Zerobody, I can focus on myself after matches: I have the chance to understand what I have to work on and to manage my mind, both after a victory or a defeat, so that I can get off to a better start.”
“Thanks to floatation, I get to work a lot on a mental level too, on relaxation and on energy recovery. It’s a priceless tool that’s helping me recover much faster.”
