NEW YORK, June 13th, 2011 - Known for his golden smile, athletic prowess and in-your-face attitude, Chad Ochocinco, wide receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals, is taking to the field in style with TapouT Mouthguards and TapouT RealG Performance Bands.
"Ochocinco is the perfect athlete to represent the TapouT brand and its energy and intensity," said Chris Circo, CEO of Battle Sports Science. "Fans absolutely adore Chad's rule-breaking enthusiasm and passionate devotion to sports. This is evident in the relationship he maintains with his over 2 million Twitter followers."
Professional athletes across all team sports have embraced mixed martial arts training for both physical and mental conditioning. MMA has replaced the more traditional training methods like running and weight lifting with
many pros due to the intense level of cardio and the core strength advantages. Others feel the gained confidence, adrenaline rush and its technical aspects are unmatched by any other form of training.
Chad Ochocinco joins Chicago Blackhawks hockey great Patrick Kane, Kansas City Chiefs superstar running back Dexter McCluster, Super Bowl winning running back Pierre Thomas from the New Orleans Saints, two
time national champion and ESPY award winner Taryne Mowatt and MMA fighters like Jake Ellenberger, Travis Browne and many others in representing TapouT Performance Products.
Produced by Battle Sports Science, in partnership with Authentic Brands Group, the TapouT Mouthguard is an innovative mouth protection system so advanced that it rivals the safety and performance of custom-molded
mouthguards that cost hundreds of dollars - yet the TapouT Mouthguard is available for a fraction of the cost.
The design of the TapouT Mouthguard has integrated channels that remain open so athletes can more easily breathe - oxygenating muscles and maintaining ease of speech. In addition, in independent testing of athletes performing basic performance tests, there were increases in performance across the board when wearing the TapouT Mouthguard. Athletes who wear TapouT Mouthguards benefit from maximum impact protection and perfect-fit technology leading to improved performance on the field.
Not only will Ochocinco be protecting his mouth in style with the mouthguard, he'll also be sporting the new
TapouT RealG Bands and the TapouT RealG Sweatbands. The bands provide unmatched durability and style
with real magnetic technology embedded in a dual layer medical grade silicone.
