If you’re a baseball fan you may have noticed one of your favorite baseball players wearing what looks like a piece of cord around their neck. More than likely, he is wearing a Titanium necklace made by a company by the name of Phiten.
I was introduced to Phiten while visiting the New York Marathon Exhibition Hall last fall. It so happened I had a crick in my neck and the gentleman manning the Phiten boot gave me a sample pack of Titanium Discs. Believe it or not, after a while of wearing the discs, my neck started to loosen up.
I was so excited by this product I asked Phiten if they would sponsor a Jillian Michaels Bootcamp I was participating in and low and behold they donated 50 Titanium Disc sample packages for distribution to our bootcamp participants.
So, what’s the technology behind Phiten’s products? The titanium in the necklaces (discs, tape, massage cream, et al) supposedly realigns the bioelectric current in your body, thus increasing blood circulation and relaxing muscles. In a nutshell, placing these pieces of titanium on the body will stabilize your current and help your body run better.
You may or may not buy in to this philosophy. It could be that the true power of Phiten’s products lay within the wearer. With a host of professional athletes such as Josh Beckett (baseball), Joba Chamberlain (baseball), Lleyton Hewitt (tennis), Jennie Finch (USA Softball), Sergio Garcia (Golf), and Paula Radcliffe (Marathoner) using and wearing Phiten’s products, you’d be in awfully good company!
