Percussion massager

Thankyou Scott for the prompt delivery of the stryke recovery massager, Ordered 2pm Friday arvo, received my order to Brisbane on Monday 9.30am I had searched for weeks looking for a percussion massager that would do the job, one that wasn't noisy, to be affordable and delivered by the 13th Sept. Alot of the ones i found on the internet overseas were expensive, very noisy and couldn't be delivered via Amazon to australia I really wanted to purchase one from australia. I found all of the above on your website. My son is a PT and works out everyday, suffers from knots and muscle strain, so i purchased this for his birthday. I recently asked my son his thoughts on the massager, he told me it was awesome, definetely does what he expected and now he has a few mates interested in purchasing one. Thanks again

Amazing product and I love the company

It was very much by chance me coming across these guys. I have wanted a massage gun for a while and I saw a friends feed on Facebook on which was the best massage gun to get and I saw this mentioned. Since the others in the market are 2 or 3 times as much I was originally skeptical but took my friends word for it. Firstly before I even got the product it was nice to see a thank you email with some tips on various hacks for using the product. And I am still getting really informative emails about the product not just spam, I love that. The product itself, 6 out of 5 stars I love this thing. It's not loud, I watched transformers the other day while using it. It charges quick and its most certainly helped with my recovery and mobility. I honestly wish I got one sooner. One of the best investiments I have made

Ultimate Trigger

Let me just start this off with it's not a $700 Hypervolt. In saying that for a third of the price of one I cannot fault this machine. This has sped up my trigger routine before I lift and made it better as it can get deeper then the trigger ball I use. It's also extremely useful after while sitting Infront of the TV so release those tired muscle's. The stealth is very quiet while it's running. While this will never replace traditional massage and dry needling it will cut down the need to do it as often. I'm extremely satisfied with my purchase and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a cheaper alternative to some of those expensive machines.

Best investment I’ve made

My stryke recovery stealth model is one of the best investments I have made. For my business as a personal trainer but also for me as a mixed martial arts athlete. I don't get nearly as sore as I used to and all my clients love it. I had multiple friends and clients buy there own after using mine! You will not regret this purchase especially considering the price compared to other models.

Great machine

I am very happy with this product ,it was delivered very quickly once order was placed ,comes in a great carry bag and has 4 great attachments . This machime is really quiet compared to the rest and has 6 settings ,really happy ,i will be recommeding this to all my friends

5 Tips to Maximise Your Recovery

5 Tips to Maximise Your Recovery
We all know how important it is to make time for recovery, both for our performance gains and our general wellbeing.

But let’s be honest:

When we have a fully stacked to-do list and limited time, it's often one of the first things to go out the window. We’re then left wondering why we feel so stiff and injury prone...

The good news?

Recovery doesn't have to be a lengthy, arduous process.

In this article, we’ll explore five simple habits, backed by science, to help you recover faster and perform to your potential.

Let’s take a look.

Tip 1: Calm The Nervous System With Breathwork

Breathwork is an easy win when it comes to calming down after a tough workout and kickstarting the recovery process.

Box breathing is a simple drill used by athletes, US Navy Seals, and the police force to increase parasympathetic nervous system activation - the rest and digest state where recovery occurs.

All it takes is 2-5 minutes at the end of your workout:

  • Inhaling for a count of four
  • Holding for four
  • Exhaling for four
  • Holding for four

Tip 2: Release Tension With Soft Tissue Release

As well as some conscious breathing, taking 5-10 minutes at the end of your workout to do some soft tissue work can make a big difference when it comes to recovery.

Self-myofascial has been shown to reduce delayed onset muscle soreness and may also improve range of motion.

A foam roller can work fairly well, but if you want to take things to the next level, you can use a massage gun like the Stryke PRO for a deeper, more targeted approach.

It's not only fun but also more efficient than traditional rolling or massage.

Tip 3: Speed Up Recovery With Hot-Cold Contrast

Contrasting between hot and cold water in the shower or bath is a recovery method that dates back to ancient Rome.

The pressure change when you go from high to low temperatures and vice versa is thought to activate lymph flow - a drainage system in the body that helps to remove waste and control inflammation.

While there’s more research needed, contrast water therapy has been shown to be more effective than passive recovery alone, so it may be worth experimenting with. 

Tip 4: Refuel With Wholefood Nutrition

Once you’ve finished up your cooldown and hit the showers, it's then time to supply your body with the building blocks it needs to recover properly.

On a basic level, this would ideally include:

  • Micronutrients/antioxidants to control inflammation. Plenty of leafy greens, dark salad leaves, cruciferous veg and a small portion of berries.
  • Adequate protein to rebuild. Including grass-fed meat, poultry, fish, or legumes.
  • Carbohydrates to replenish glycogen stores. Quinoa, buckwheat, wild rice, yams or sweet potatoes are great choices.
  • Fats to support hormonal profile. Oily fish, eggs, avocadoes, nuts, seeds, olive oil or coconut oil.

Tip 5: Come Back Stronger With Quality Sleep

Both sleep quantity and quality are crucial when it comes to maximizing recovery. It's when we’re at rest that the body replenishes and we make improvements from our training.

Some easy habits to ensure a good night’s sleep include:

  • Skipping caffeine after midday
  • Limiting blue light exposure in the evening
  • Having your last meal 3-4 hours prior to bed
  • Using blackout blinds to minimize light exposure
  • Keeping the room cool - around 15-19 degrees Celcius

Over to you:

Now you're armed with a few simple habits to maximize your recovery, it's time to get out there and experiment. All it takes is a few extra minutes each day to do a little self-care, and your body will thank you.
