James Moore, Head of Medical at Hytro said: “I have talked about the benefits of BFR with my clients for years – but nobody was bringing this unrivalled method of training to elites and amateurs in an efficient, safe and accessible way. Working with the guys at Hytro, it’s clear that their products will be taking BFR on a shift from expensive kit in elite performance physio rooms and scientific journals to the masses, with one easy product. This brand is revolutionising the recovery and performance market, so I‘m excited to bring the benefits of Hytro to more coaches to help their athletes win.”
Dr Warren Bradley, Founder and Head of Elite Performance at Hytro added: “Like the rest of the industry, I have known and respected James’ work for a long time, seeing him develop athletes into world champions.
