Over the last few years, a large number of pro athletes, teams, and world-class trainers have incorporated red light therapy into their daily workout and recovery routines, with pretty incredible results.
NFL Athletes are Crushing it with Joovv Red Light Therapy
Joovv red light therapy has taken off in the NFL in recent years for muscle recovery and injury rehab, with NFL teams and star players incorporating Joovv into their core workout routines.
Patrick Peterson has made the Pro Bowl in all 7 of his NFL seasons at cornerback with the Arizona Cardinals. He’s one of the most consistently elite athletes in all of sports, and to stay at the top of his game as he nears 30, Peterson incorporated daily, full-body light therapy with Joovv in 2018:
My energy level is up, my mental game is much clearer, and the way I sleep & feel is totally different since I implemented Joovv.*
Dallas Cowboys star DeMarcus Lawrence has emerged as one of the NFL’s elite defensive linemen over the last two seasons. He added Joovv red light therapy to his training camp routine and loved how he felt after draining late-summer practices. Fellow Cowboys D-lineman Tyrone Crawford uses Joovv red light therapy too. Down the road in Houston, Tyrann Mathieu is training with Joovv and anchoring the Texans secondary.
If you’re more into touchdowns, don’t worry, red light therapy isn’t just for the defense. Chargers star wide receiver Keenan Allen missed the 2016 season with a knee injury before working Joovv into his training in the last few years. Keenan exploded into one of the best pass catchers in football in 2017, making his first Pro Bowl. He’s killed it again in 2018 and led the Chargers to the playoffs.
Detroit Lions linebacker Devon Kennard had a string of injuries that limited his playing time over the first few years of his career. But Kennard started training with Joovv on a daily basis in 2017. Now he’s having his best year in 2018, setting a career high in sacks through just the first half of the season.
Keenan Allen, Patrick Peterson, DeMarcus Lawrence, Tyrann Mathieu, and Devon Kennard are just a sampling of the growing number of NFL players and teams adding Joovv to their core workout routines for muscle recovery, training, energy, and peak physical performance. Joovv has shown especially good results for NFL players overcoming injuries, with guys like Kennard and Allen not just recovering, but surpassing their pre-injury form and putting up career seasons.
Pro Golfers are Joovvin’ for Less Joint Pain & Inflammation, and Better Sleep
Some of the best golfers in the world are Joovvin’ on the PGA Tour to overcome joint pain and inflammation, play at the top of their game, and sleep better on the road week in and week out. Masters & British Open champion Zach Johnson showed off his Joovv Go, and he’s not alone. US Open champion Graeme McDowell is Joovvin’ too, and so are many of the best players on Tour.
Leading pro golf trainer Dr. Troy Van Biezen is a big believer in Joovv red light therapy, and works with some of the biggest names in golf, like Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, and Justin Thomas. Dr. Ara Suppiah is another leading trainer who uses Joovv with clients like Bubba Watson and Phil Mickelson.
They’ve seen firsthand with champion golfers how Joovv treatments help minimize joint pain and inflammation, and help players get full nights of sleep before big rounds. More and more PGA pros are using red light therapy, and buying their own Joovvs for their homes and training facilities, with impressive results.
Men’s Journal has also written about the training, recovery, and sleep benefits of Joovv red light therapy.
Joovvin’ in the NHL
3-time Stanley Cup champion Duncan Keith uses Joovv to stay healthy in the hard-hitting NHL in his mid-thirties. Duncan even gave Joovv a shout-out in the New York Times. He’s one of a growing number of elite pro hockey players using full-body red light therapy every day to train and recover between games.
The International Sports World is Benefiting from Joovv
Players and franchises in the MLB and NBA are also using Joovv, as are soccer and rugby players around the world. The same is true of elite athletes on the global stage.
Sanne Wevers is a Dutch gymnast, and the reigning gold-medal champion on women’s balance beam. She wrote a guest post about how she uses her Joovv to rehab from strain and pain, and also get healthy, restful sleep. She’s using Joovv ahead of 2020 to defend her world title.
Lauren Fendrick is one of the best beach volleyball players in the world and she’s Joovvin’ too. Lauren competed in Rio in 2016, and has her eyes set on 2020 in Tokyo. She talked to Joovv and told us her biggest lesson learned from 2016 was that she needed to focus more on recovery. Now Joovv is helping her come back from workouts faster with less injury risk.
Amelia Boone is one of the most decorated obstacle racers of all-time. She tried Joovv red light therapy for rehab after spraining ligaments in her forefoot. Amelia says Joovv made a huge difference and is absolutely clutch for recovery and rehab.

Is Joovv an “Unfair Competitive Advantage”?
The late great strength trainer Charles Poliquin told us in mid-2018 that he had all his clients using Joovv red light therapy for muscle recovery and energy. He also mentioned that people in the training and sports worlds have a new dilemma: red light therapy seems to be giving athletes an “unfair competitive advantage”—almost like a performance-enhancing drug, even though red light therapy is completely natural. Advantage, yes. Unfair or unnatural? Definitely not.
Red light therapy has been tested and researched in thousands of clinical trials, with overwhelmingly positive results, and almost no reported side effects.
