MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Eight Sleep, the world’s first sleep fitness company, today announced that Justin Medeiros, 2021 CrossFit Games Champion, has officially signed with the sleep technology pioneer as an athlete ambassador. In the partnership Medeiros will serve as brand ambassador of Eight Sleep and will help spread awareness around the importance of sleep to maximize athletic potential. Eighth Sleep continues to support Medeiros while training for the Rogue Invitationals as well as other Crossfit competitions both physically at the gym and through recovery at home, to ensure he will compete at optimal potential.
“Having Eight Sleep as a part of my training arsenal was a huge component in winning the CrossFit Games this year. The amount of time that I spent inside the gym is equal to the time I spent outside the gym making my recovery even more important,” said Justin Medeiros, 2021 CrossFit Games Champion. “What’s unique about the Eight Sleep technology is that it regulates bed temperature to optimize sleep fitness. This has improved my sleep significantly so I’m ready to perform in the gym every day.”
“Eight Sleep has spearheaded sleep as a new category of fitness and athletes like Justin Medeiros are a perfect example of how impactful sleep fitness is for achieving optimal performance. Eight Sleep is proud to be working with the world’s fittest man to drive a global movement to prioritize sleep fitness for everyone,” said Matteo Francheschetti, CEO and Co-Founder of Eight Sleep.
Medeiros joins more than 100 pro athletes that rely on the Eight Sleep Pod technology to power their recovery, including current and former Olympians Matthew Dellavedova (2020 Bronze Medalist, Basketball), Daryl Homer (2020, and 2016 Silver Medalist, Fencing), Jane Campbell (2020 Bronze Medalist, Soccer), Apolo Ohno (Two-Time Gold Medalist, Speed Skating) and Daniel Sturridge (English Soccer Player). Following an amazing podium finish in his 2020 Games debut, the former wrestler and football player relocated to Washington to workout daily with his coach and make huge leaps in his workouts, training and sleep routines. Now, Medeiros is one of the brightest young stars in CrossFit and the current reigning champion after an impressive run in the 2021 CrossFit Games.

Earlier this year, the company also launched SleepOS, the world’s first operating system for sleep optimization. SleepOS acts as the brains of Eight Sleep and uses data to personalize and adjust the Pod towards each user’s unique sleep fitness goals.
