Your Medium-Heavyweight World Champion Joins Troomy in Supporting Mushroom-Powered Wellness
Our team here at Troomy's extremely excited to announce our first athlete to join our mushroom-powered wellness campaign!
Amy Campo is a black belt world champion in Brazilian jiu-jitsu that became Medium-heavyweight world champion in early June of 2023. She's been training with Eduardo Mori at his academy to earn her opportunities as an internationally-dominant competitor year-in and year-out.
At Troomy, she'll be sporting her new mushroom gummies to support a more focused approach to her work on the mat, elevated energy and muscle fatigue recovery, stress relief, improved sleep habits, and more.
Campo's Breakout Year as a Rookie Black Belt
In 2022, Campo really hit the ground running as a black belt entering the highest level of competition. She kicked off the year with 3 victories in the ADCC West Coast Trials Women's 60 kg+ division, over Maggie Grindatti and Elizabeth Clay, vaulting her to a final against Paive Ivette. This advanced her to opportunities in both gi and non-gi competition, where she won silver in the Absolute division of the 2022 World Jiu-Jitsu Championship. She was the first American to do so in over 10 years.
Additionally, she found a way to win against Gabi Garcia, a 4-time ADCC Champion, in the 2022 ADCC World Championship, along with Elisabeth Clay and Rafaela Guedes as well.
Now, she joins Team Troomy to not only keep killin' it on the mat, but crush her daily health and wellness goals too.
Campo's New Mission With Troomy
Based out of Utah, Campo just celebrated her tenth year practicing Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and has been honing her craft all over the world now. She is thoroughly involved with local organizations, coaching, and teaching the next gen of competitors to create lasting impression in work ethic, tenacity, and approach to the support.
As our first athlete on team Troomy, Amy's embraced the mushroom-powered lifestyle to help her get through the workout recovery process, keep energy high, and cultivate a strong sleep schedule.
What are Medicinal Mushrooms?
Medicinal mushrooms are an echelon above the average mushroom you might have in the next recipe you try. Medicinal mushrooms qualify as such through offering quality wellness support in different functional benefits. This can be anything from:
- Improving energy
- Increasing focus
- Relieving stress
- Regulating sleep habits
- Bettering immunity
Together, each of these benefits can be targeted by combining different fungi species to create a complete, versatile, and athlete-specific wellness routine.
How Do They Translate to Results on the Mat?
As a fighter, preparation is everything when it comes to completing a workout cycle for the week, taking care of your body with treatment, and knowing your opponent. Offering cognitive support, oxidative stress relief, and muscle recovery for your body can be a game-changer when it comes to submissions & staying fresh for a full match.
What's Next for Amy?
More history. As the first American woman in ADCC history to have conquered the 60+kg division in 2022, she's already well on her way to becoming an all-time great in the sport. While that's never fair to pin on any competitor in their fighting career, Campo's match-success history speaks for itselves.
As a Team Troomy Leader
In the coming weeks, we'll be doing a Q&A with Campo to hear more about her process as an athlete, what she works into her routine to make sure she's performing at her best, and advice for other rising athletes looking to join the competitive space.
Catch Amy at her next competition, and give Troomy a try to start killing it on the mat and finding your "True Me" today!
