Whether it’s post game, race day, rest day, or a deload week during a macrocycle, recovery science has come a long way. It can help you reduce the sensations of exercise induced muscle damage and help you return to your best quicker than before. Our contrast baths, NormaTec boots and Game Ready machines are all in place to blunt the inflammatory response associated with delayed onset muscle soreness and when combined with an active component of recovery, will have you back on track quicker than ever before.

Testing & Screening
