This product comes highly rated and recommended by two of our health and fitness professionals: Alaina, a registered nurse and certified barre instructor as well as Becky, a physical therapist specializing in sports injuries. While this exact model and brand aren't necessary to get the benefits, this is one option I found as an example.
The massage gun is a great tool to feature right now during our Focus 90 "recovery" week (an accountability program that we are offering for our members right now) ! While foam rolling, regular stretching and a good massage from a professional or significant other can be very beneficial, this is something even easier and more convenient! You can do it yourself while resting in bed or on the couch.

Continuing to foam roll, stretch, drink plenty of water, get enough sleep and properly fuel your body with the right nutrients are all a part of the recovery process.
