Remember when ChiliSleep partnered with the Reds and Mariners for a sports science collaboration?
Well, the company is back in the sports arena, this time partnering with Florida State University’s football team.
Josh Storms, Florida State’s Director of Strength and Conditioning, spearheaded the collaboration, which officially kicked it off on August 11 at FSU’s three-day off-site football training camp in Jacksonville.
The FSU football team tried out ChiliSleep’s Cube—a bed cooling system that triggers deep, sweat-free sleep—during the three-day training camp, and players and staff can continue using the Cube throughout the season.
The Cube system includes a reversible, hydro-powered Cool Mesh mattress pad, control unit, and a remote so sleepers can find their ideal temperature.
“I’ve been a ChiliSleep user now for the last several months,” Storms says. “My wearable sleep tracker shows a significant trend up in the amount of deep and REM I’m getting each night. More importantly, I feel the difference daily in my recovery and energy level. After only a few nights I knew this would help my student-athletes, especially our big guys. I’m a firm believer in that if you improve a student athlete’s sleep you’ve improved the student-athlete.”
Seminole Sports Properties, FSU Athletics’ multimedia rightsholder, and the Tallahassee-based Learfield team secured the ChiliSleep relationship with the football program on behalf of the university.
“What I’m most thrilled about is how this commitment from Florida State’s football team echoes a philosophy shared across the Noles community,” says ChiliSleep CEO and Co-Founder Tara Youngblood. “As one of the country’s foremost research universities, Florida State University is known for its cutting-edge commitment to optimizing students’ physical and mental health through customized wellness services, sleep coaching, and healthy lifestyle counseling. We are thrilled to now be a partner for such an esteemed academic institution.”
