(Austin, TX- September 29, 2015)— TriggerPoint™ Performance, a division of the Implus Corporation and leading performance, therapy and education product innovator, has been announced as a Training Partner of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Founded in 1933, the Pittsburgh Steelers are the oldest franchise in the AFC, having won more Super Bowl titles and having hosted more conference championships games than any other team in the NFL. TriggerPoint first worked with the team’s strength and conditioning coaches during the 2012 – 2013 season and will now fully integrate its products and education methodologies within the Steelers training regime to help the team continue to compete and recover at their best.
As part of the partnership, the Steelers received a robust line of TriggerPoint’s patented massage and recovery tools, including the GRID® and GRID® X foam rollers, TP Massage™ and TP Factor™ Balls, and the new handheld foam roller, the GRID® STK.
