Prevent Injuries | Heal Faster | Perform Better

What exactly is an Wellness Recovery Lounge and how can it benefit you? Our mission is simple: Bring accessible and affordable injury recovery, better health, and increased performance to everyone!

After living at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, we realized the key component missing from most training programs is recovery.  Recovery is the game changer.  Athletes living at the training center have access to an incredible array of equipment and knowledge allowing them to train smarter by recovering faster.  Whether you are coming back from injuries, trying to lower the risk of future setbacks, or looking to increase your training potential, our Wellness Lounge has all the tools you need to help you reach your goals!

“Most people are guilty of taking care of others and not themselves; we offer the solution.”

Not only does our facility offer innovative recovery tools, but we’ve worked hard to create a place where people can come to get inspired and share their experiences.  While recovering in our infrared sauna or using ice compression for a sprained ankle, people of all levels can hang out and be a part of their local athletic community.  Add in free WiFi, big screen TVs, and comfy theater chairs…you may never want to leave! 

All the equipment in our Wellness Lounge is hand picked and thoroughly researched to bring you the best of the best in recovery science. And you can walk in anytime during operating hours without an appointment and have unlimited use of these innovative tools, such as NormaTec massage boots & sleeves, GameReady ice compression wraps, a full spectrum infrared sauna, cold & hot therapy tubs, LaserTouchOne cold lasers with E-Stim, Vorteq Contrast Therapy, Rapid Release Vibration Treatment, and much, much more!

“Recharge is meant for everyone, from those dealing with injuries to the weekend warrior to the professional athlete, and our cutting edge facility allows us to pull the full vision together.”

GameReady Ice Compression

Whether you’re recovering from surgery, an acute injury, or a nasty bike crash, this apparatus will get you back in action faster.  GameReady wraps provide ice compression at 34 degrees to wherever you need extra attention and have excess inflammation. This is no ordinary ice machine…by cycling from low to high pressure, cold blood is circulated through the injured area and inflammation is pushed out so you can heal faster. When excess inflammation or swelling forms, your body can not get new blood into the injury and healing slows — therefore getting inflammation down is one of the most important steps to support the healing process, and nothing does that better than Game Ready!

Vorteq Contrast Therapy

Vorteq is the first Automated Thermal Contrast Therapy device. While using hot and cold to increase blood flow and reduce inflammation is not new, Vorteq is the first to revolutionize the technology that can apply this treatment in an automatic and precise way to any part of the body. Now you can set temperatures from a range of 30 degrees to 115 degrees for targeted, specific therapy to wherever you need it.

And because the treatments are precisely applied they are much more effective!

Hot & Cold Tubs

Ever tried contrast therapy?  Go from cold to hot and back again in order to flush out your legs after hard training.  Your body will thank you later!

By transitioning from hot to cold, you get a vasodilation and a vasoconstriction of the blood vessels that enables better blood flow and removal of inflammation. Studies show that this is much more beneficial than icing for recovery…and it is much more pleasant! Our tubs are set at the optimal temperatures of 52 degress and 104 degrees…so there is no guesswork! Towels and sauna are right next to the tubs for full body thermal therapy sessions as well!
