Recovery Lounge opens doors to public

Recovery Lounge opens doors to public

Recovery Lounge, New Zealand’s first elite athlete recovery facility for non-professional athletes, will open its doors for the first time this morning.

The brand new, one of a kind facility in Mount Eden’s SportsLab complex caters to both professional and non-professional athletes that deserve easy access to quality recovery tools. These tools are designed to maximise training, assist in proper recovery, help avoid injury and ultimately get better performance from hard work.

Managing director and 2006 Commonwealth Games 1500m finalist Paul Hamblyn says recovery is a vital aspect of training and performance.

“My vision is to bring the most important elements of recovery to every athlete wanting the best from their training. It’s not just All Blacks and Olympians that need to take care of their bodies after training, it’s everybody,” Mr Hamblyn says.

Recovery Lounge is the first facility of its kind to be available to the general public, not just high performance athletes. The 24-hour facility offers the best recovery technology used by the professionals, including the highly coveted Normatec Pro Recovery compression boots, therapeutic hot spa and cryotherapy pool.

“We’ve also got free wi-fi, shower facilities, and a hot drink bar with a communal lounge. You can become a member, drop in on one-offs, or book as a group,” Hamblyn says
