Seattle Kraken 2021 Draft Pick Ryker Evans uses Thermotex for peak performance

Ryker Evans - Seattle Kraken - uses Thermotex for Peak Performance


Earlier this year, up and coming NHL defenseman Ryker Evans signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Seattle Kraken. With a promising hockey career on the horizon, keeping his body at peak performance—both on and off the ice—is a top priority going into the 2022-2023 season. By implementing Thermotex into his post-game ritual, Ryker has found a remedy that puts both his mind and body at ease, allowing him to rest and reset with faster recovery times. 

But don’t take it from us—hear how Ryker uses Thermotex for optimal performance in our Q&A: 

Can you tell us a bit about yourself personally and professionally?

I’m a very active person. My health, nutrition, and well-being are things I love working on. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease at 10 years old. I’m extremely passionate and obsessed with what I do professionally. Keeping my body at 100% to allow myself to perform at my best is always my number one priority.  

What inspired you to start your hockey career? What do you love most about it? 

My Dad was the first person to put me in skates and take me on the ice at two years old. He played NCAA hockey for UMass Amherst, and then went on to play professionally in Germany. 

The best part of the sport by far is getting to meet so many new people that soon become friends for life.

How did you discover Thermotex?

I discovered Thermotex through my Aunt and Uncle.

How does Thermotex help with your wellness and pain management routine?

Using the Thermotex now is almost like a reset. After a long day, I start my routine to get my body ready for tomorrow. Using the Thermotex almost flips a switch in my brain and allows me to reset and feel better the next day.

How do you incorporate Thermotex into your routine on competition days?

It has become a ritual using it after games. That’s when I feel it helps best.

What has your experience with pain and inflammation been like?

Being a hockey player, your body physically gets broken down by blocking shots, getting hit, and working out during the season. So I’m always trying to find an edge to make sure I’m feeling 100% everyday and can perform.

In your opinion, what are some of the benefits of far infrared heat when compared to other treatment options? 

The research and proven stats behind Thermotex is what caught my eye. I like the instant relief that it gives you, because it warms you up and makes you feel comfortable. Other treatments don’t give you that satisfaction.

What does wellness mean to you? 

Wellness to me is having control of your mind and body. Being able to surround yourself with positive people that will allow you to be your best self.  

What’s on the horizon for you? What are you excited about these days?

This next year will be a big year for me as it all comes down to how I perform. I’ve dreamed of what I’m about to do as a kid, and now to almost be able to live out my dream is crazy to think about. I’m excited to see all my hard work pay off this year!
