Rapidly growing line of sports hydration and recovery products to support worldwide CrossFit organization that provides opportunities, resources and recovery tools to service members who need them most
(Fairfax, CA – April 8th, 2014) – – Osmo Nutrition, creators of the rapidly growing sports hydration and recovery products specifically optimized for male and female physiologies and based on peer-reviewed science and the pioneering work of Dr. Stacy Sims, is proud to partner with The Resiliency Project, a collaboration between the worldwide CrossFit community and health practitioners dedicated to supporting service members in need of emotional and physical support.
“Exercise changes lives,“ says Kelly Starrett, co-founder of The Resiliency Project and world-renown physical therapist, author, coach and movement specialist. ”Many soldiers return from war suffering with ailments that go untreated. Once home, if they’re not given proper treatment and stimulus, their wounded bodies and idle minds can become unhealthy. Those with PTSD may further bury their emotions and become even more withdrawn from society. Our objective is to offer these service members recovery and mobility tools and create experiences to help them move forward in a positive manner. “
There are currently over 100 CrossFit gyms affiliated with The Resiliency Project that Osmo Nutrition will offer education, support and wholesale pricing to, and will donate a portion of sales in the form of product to the organization. “We are honored to support The Resiliency Project,” says Lisa Hunt, Manager of Marketing and Sponsorships for Osmo Nutrition. “As a CrossFit enthusiast, I have known and worked with Kelly and share in his belief that healthy minds and healthy bodies result in enhancing quality of lives.”
This partnership comes on the heels of another partnership between Osmo Nutrition and the US Military Endurance Sports Program, a privately funded 501c3 non-profit organization supporting recreational and competitive cycling, triathlon, and adaptive cycling activities for current and Veteran members of the United States Armed Forces.
