Renee Metivier

Renee Theraband

Renee Metivier has been a professional runner since 2005, when she graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder.  She has represented the USA at five IAAF World Championships, and she is the 2010 USATF Indoor 3000m National Champion as well as the 2012 USATF 20k National Champion.  Renee debuted in the marathon at the 2012 Chicago Marathon, where she ran 2:27:17 – the third fastest American debut and ranks seventh on the all-time Fastest American Marathoners list.

Renee underwent Achilles surgery in the summer of 2011, and her subsequent comeback has been much of the inspiration behind Recharge.  Renee was fortunate to have the opportunity to stay in the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs for her rehab after surgery. She had access to a plethora of innovative tools to aid her injury recovery and rebuild strength as well as treatment from the best therapists, coaches, and trainers.  After the four months there, she questioned why this knowledge, equipment, and cohesive support were not readily available to everyone.  Renee and Austin’s mission in opening Recharge is to bring professional level recovery and performance to everyone so that they can help people reach their full potential.

Renee is excited to share her vast knowledge from years of competitive athletics with you so you can be happier and healthier in your own pursuits.  She enjoys working with and motivating athletes of all levels from those seeking to become more injury free to those looking for big performance gains…always with a focus on specificity, perfect form, and recovery!
