Recharge celebrates grand re-opening in January; Bringing together the best in sports performance and recovery tools for Central Oregon athletes.

BEND, Nov. 25, 2014 — Recharge, an innovate athletic recovery and performance center in the Old Mill Marketplace in Bend, OR, announced today its full expansion plans and grand re-opening party slated for January 10, 2015. The new Recharge location will feature an Olympic-style training center, a studio for group fitness and yoga classes, personal training/coaching services, and collaboration with the best in physical therapy, acupuncture, sports massage and exercise therapy in addition to the athletic recovery lounge.

“Our goal is to make high-level athletic recovery and performance tools accessible to everyone,” said Renee Metivier Baillie, professional athlete and co-owner of Recharge. Baillie spent time at the US Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs after Achilles surgery and realized her vision of creating a community for athletes of all levels to have affordable access to the professional tools that helped speed her own recovery. “Recharge is meant for everyone, from those dealing with injuries to the weekend warrior to the professional athlete, and our new location allows us to finally pull the full vision together.”

The expanded Recharge team includes Cherie Touchette, CPT/Multisport Coach, with the addition of functional strength classes and her spin studio, Cycl’in. Dr. Lara Gritz, DAOM, joins the team to offer Recharge Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, Tim Monaco, LMT/CMTA, will add his expertise in sports massage and holistic nutrition consulting, and Katie Steele, LMFT, of Thrive Bend will work with clients interested in exercise therapy.  The facility will also offer group fitness classes, personal training and coaching services, and yoga for athletes.

Recharge’s “full vision” comes together through a collaboration with Burke Selbst of Focus Physical Therapy for sports rehabilitation. Focus Physical Therapy will house their AlterG AntiGravity Treadmill at their location inside Recharge, which will be Burke’s primary clinic location. The vision is completed with the addition of a Mother’s Juice Cafe “grab-and-go” location for high quality nutrition for busy athletes.

With the expansion, the new location will still focus on Recharge’s innovative recovery lounge model that allows Central Oregon athletes unlimited access to NormaTec Recovery compression sleeves, Game Ready cryotherapy, LaserTouchOne cold laser therapy with e-stim, hot and cold tubs for contrast baths, and a full spectrum infrared sauna all at a monthly cost roughly equivalent to one therapy session. Recharge will also continue to offer its line-up of social events that range from movie night to monthly group trails runs and free informational clinics. The relaxed atmosphere of the lounge, paired with free wifi and flatscreen TVs, makes Recharge the ultimate destination for the active person!

No appointment is required to use the equipment at Recharge, and the first visit is free for Central Oregon residents. In addition to the flagship location in Bend, OR Recharge has recently opened locations in Fairfax, CA and Vancouver, WA with plans for further expansion to be revealed in 2015.

Recharge will celebrate bringing together the best of the best in athletic recovery and performance with a grand re-opening party on January 10, 2015 with live music, free Mother’s Juice Cafe cocktails, cool raffle prizes, and the opportunity to meet this powerhouse team of health and wellness professionals while checking out their new location!
