New Training Matches Sports Massage Therapists with NFL Prospects
Each year, around 300 of the best college football players in the country are invited to the NFL Scouting Combine, where key personnel from every NFL team assess these players for the upcoming NFL draft
To prepare for this career-making event, many of the players enter intense training programs at a small number of elite athletic centers.
One such center is XPE Sports in Boca Raton, Florida. A long list of NFL stars train or have trained at the facility in the off-season—including the San Francisco 49ers’ Anquan Boldin, the Kansas City Chiefs’ Eric Berry and the New Orleans Saints’ Mark Ingram—and each January, about 30 to 40 college football players come to XPE to train for the NFL Scouting Combine.
XPE Sports has joined forces with sports massage educator George Kousaleos, L.M.T., founder of the CORE Institute, to offer the CORE Sports Bodywork Certification and Clinical Mentorship program, which involves working on these top NFL prospects during their time at the XPE NFL Combine Prep.
