BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Standing 7-foot-1, Rudy Gobert quickly ducks his head to the side in order to avoid hitting it in the front walkway entrance of LA Main Physical Therapy facility.
Once inside, the Utah Jazz center can fully stretch out as he connects with French osteopath and physical therapist Fabrice Gautier for one of his weekly sessions to keep his million-dollar body intact.
“Eyes up,” Gautier instructs him as Gobert is in the midst of completing deep overhead squats while balancing on an inflatable stability cushion. “Keep that chest up.”
Gobert has spent the entire month of June training in Los Angeles, which has included sessions with Gautier plus basketball workouts five times a week and weight training up to six times per week with others.
