We all love a great Gift Guide for Runners and Exercise Enthusiasts alike. I had so many great ideas for gifts that I am splitting them up into 2 different guides. This week, I am bringing you all my favorite recovery gifts in a range of price points. I hope you like all of my suggestions and I look forward to hearing yours as well. I believe all of these gifts are great for men and women. I will be linking up with Erika and April so please check out all of their great ideas.
1. Stretch Rope-
A simple, inexpensive, yet so effective tool to add to your recovery routine. I’ve been using this for years and really find that I can get a much better angle for some of my favorite stretches. (Approx. $15) At this price makes a great gift for friend too.
2. Roll 8 Recovery
I recently received one of these for a birthday gift (recommended by my friend Suzy) and was immediately impressed with the deep massage it provided. Talk about hurting so good. This does not disappoint. It is a little on the pricey ($119)side but I intend to use it for years. At this time, it is only available on their website you can also see it in action on Youtube
3. Primal Sport Mud
I began using this product last winter while recovering from some shin and ankle issues. You apply the “mud” to the affected area and apply heat which provides a penetrating, soothing treatment. You can read my full review here. It sells for approx $16 and this size has lasted me 6 treatments so far.
Primal Sport Mud(Available on Amazon)
4. Icy Feet
I came across these at an expo and was intrigued by them. If you’ve ever had Plantar Fasciitis , heel spurs or just sore and tired feet you know how painful that can be. It is often hard and awkward to ice the area. Enter Icy Feet ” an ice pack that was engineered with an exaggerated arch for constant contact where relief is needed most, a recessed heel cup so one foot could comfortably rest in the cold pack, a solid structure so that a foot could conform to the cold pack (versus the cold pack conforming to the foot), and two strategically placed straps so that you can elevate while icing.” Retail price is approx. $29 for one foot/$55 for 2 feet
- Easy to use
- Easy to clean
- Streamlines icing process
- Features an engineered insole shape with a recessed heel cup and elevated arch
- Two strategically placed straps so that you can elevate while icing
- One size fits all (left foot and right foot cold packs can be purchased separately)
- Freezes solid
- Continuous contact with the foot where relief is needed most
What’s your favorite recovery tool or gadget? I am always looking for new ones! Ever tried any of these?
