Ask any professional athlete and they will say one of the key components of their program is appropriate recovery. Recovery can be rest, nutrition, sleep, active movement and gentle mobility drills. With the use of our gym space we have dedicated times where you can drop in to a group consultation and go through an individualised recovery program. This may involve gentle stretches and mobility as well as use of some of the worlds most foremost recovery technology like GameReady, NormaTec and Compex. See below for a detailed explanation of the recovery tools:
Please note you should be familiar with all pieces of equipment prior to booking into a class so please book in for a consult with our resident recovery expert Tom Valentine to go through the equipment and ensure we can optimise use for your specific needs and goals. You can also book into our "Functional Strength & Rehab" class time slots and utilise the equipment. See that page for pricing details.
After a musculoskeletal injury or surgery, you play a critical role in the recovery process. Game Ready’s therapeutic technologies help you finish strong and get back to the things that matter as quickly as possible by helping to reduce the use of opioid medications, decrease pain and swelling and increase post-operative range of motion.
In a head-to-head performance comparison, the Game Ready system provides faster, deeper-penetrating, and longer-lasting cooling compared to traditional Rest-Ice-Compression-Elevation (RICE) methods and other devices.
NormaTec is the leader in rapid recovery - the systems give a competitive edge to the world’s elite athletes, coaches, and trainers. NormaTec's goal is to establish recovery as an integral part of every athlete’s training. The NormaTec PULSE Recovery Systems are dynamic compression devices designed for recovery and rehab. The systems use NormaTec's patented PULSE technology to help athletes recover faster between trainings and after performance.
The NormaTec Pulse Massage Pattern starts in the foot and moves upwards zone-by-zone massaging the limb and mobilising fluid out of the extremities. Similar to the kneading and stroking done during a massage, each segment of the attachment will first compress in a pulsing manner and then release. This will repeat for each segment of the attachment as the compression pattern works its way up your limb.
