Angola, IN, November 18, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- On Monday, Hudson Aquatic Systems made an agreement with Lloy Ball, 2008 USA Gold Medalist, to endorse their aquatic therapy equipment including therapy pools and underwater treadmill systems.
“We think Lloy is a great fit for Hudson because he represents every type of need for aquatic therapy, and our products and units are perfect for athletes,” said George Hunter, president of Hudson Aquatic Systems. “He represents the full spectrum of aquatic therapy use: from athletic training, performance and conditioning; to injury rehabilitation; to recovery; and daily improvement of quality of life.”
Lloy Ball has a long and impressive list of volleyball accomplishments including: a collegiate career at IPFW with NCAA Final Four appearances and individual awards; 14 years on the USA team accumulating three medals including gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, 10 years as captain and four individual awards; as well as, 16 years playing professionally overseas with 17 championships and/or medals. Lloy is also the only American volleyball player to have captained a professional Russian team and have his jersey retired by a Russian Club.
With this type of career, Lloy is very experienced in training and conditioning. Unfortunately, he is also experienced with injuries and rehabilitation.
"I’ve had three knee procedures and numerous other rehab stints and train four hours a day,” said Ball, Olympic Gold Medalist, NCAA All-American and a 16 year professional volleyball player. “I know how important training, conditioning and physical therapy are, and the aquatic underwater treadmill line by Hudson Aquatic Systems is a game changer! These products will add career longevity to an athlete’s life by increasing muscle mass, strength gains and overall endurance without damaging hips, knees and ankle joints. The therapeutic nature of these systems is great for the aching pain that comes with training and age. It sure will make a huge difference in my life.”
Ball is currently a high school volleyball coach and owner/operator of Team Pineapple™ Properties LLC, a club volleyball organization in northeast Indiana with a competitive program emphasizing fundamentals, strategy, and teamwork in an environment instilling positive life lessons.
