Thrive Global CEO and founder Arianna Huffington joined Kevin Plank, CEO and founder of Under Armour, at the Consumer Electronics Show Friday to announce a new partnership between the companies around sleep and high performance living.
“All of the new data makes absolutely clear that sleep is a performance enhancer,” Arianna said. “We have been living under this collective delusion that sleep is not necessary.”
The misguided sentiment is deeply embedded in our culture and our language around high performance and success.
Commenting on Under Armour’s new REST. WIN. REPEAT. vision, Arianna said, “It’s so much better than ‘I’’ll sleep when I’m dead’ or ‘You snooze you lose,’ which are just simply wrong.”
Under Armour made another big announcement at CES Thursday with its new line of athlete recovery sleepwear in partnership with New England Patriots quarterback and sleep proponent Tom Brady, who is sponsored by Under Armour. Brady also shared his six steps to a better night’s sleep, which you can find here.
