Olympic athletes receive daily massages to help aid their recovery time between performances. However, for the average person, this is not a reality. We struggle to make time to focus on body wellness.
Let us introduce you to recovery pumps.
Recovery Pump Systems work by increasing your blood circulation through the application of compressed air. Compression begins at your feet and works its way up through to your lower and upper leg. The system attends your muscles in the same way a personal massage therapist would.
The higher pressure in your veins helps to flush out metabolic waste. Once complete, the chambers deflate and re-start the process again.
You will experience:
- Improved Recovery
- Reduced muscle soreness
- Relieves muscle fatigue
- Decrease swelling and stiffness
- Reduce heart-rate and blood pressure
People often forget the importance of rest and recovery between training sessions. In order to achieve optimal performance, you must give your body tissue time to repair. It is often during this recuperation period that tissue heals and grows, resulting in larger, stronger muscles.
Rest and recovery prevents muscle fatigue. Each workout depletes the glycogen levels in your muscles. If these levels do not return to normal prior to your next round of exercise, this can lead to soreness.
Regular rest days spent in our recovery lounge can even lead to better quality sleep, as your hormone levels re-balance.
- Improved recovery
- Faster return to training or competition
- Improved readiness for exercise participation
- Reduced muscle soreness
- Facilitates the shortening of rest between training or performance
Making time for rest and recovery can prevent overtraining. Overtraining can develop into health condition that affects roughly 60% of elite athletes and 30% non-elite endurance athletes.
Once developed, it can be hard to shake off. Overtraining can make you feel severely dehydrated, increase your body fat percentage, lower your libido and lead to bad moods and low self-esteem.
Healthy lifestyles involve balance. It can be tricky to navigate sharing time between your family, friends, work and fitness. This is where our recovery lounge can help. Book in with your friends or family and enjoy the time together whilst recuperating from your latest workout.
- Reduces fatigue and soreness in muscles
- Relaxes or releases the muscle and relieves spasms
- Remove inflammation in the joint, soft tissue and muscle tissue
- Reduced risk of injury
- Faster post-op recovery
It is important to listen to your body. You will feel when you need to take a rest day. Everyone is different, some people may need one a week whereas others need three.
Feeling agitated and moody? Struggling to get a good night’s sleep? Suffering from aches and pains? These are all signs you need to take some time out. After a session in our recovery lounge your body will feel refreshed and grateful that you took time for you.
Recovery is just as valuable for your mental health as well as your physical health.
