Today, cold recovery is a given in professional sports. The benefits of cold in an athlete’s recovery process have been known for a long time: after training or competing, the body recovers faster when exposed to cold, and cold therapy also reduces delayed muscle pain after a workout.
Effective training takes effective recovery, and the more competitive the pace, the more important recovery becomes. Recovery impacts whether or not an athlete is ready to give their best in the next game and perform at optimal levels.
Effective recovery leads to better performance. In competitive, high-level sports, where athletes are under massive pressure to perform, gaining a competitive advantage in recovery is key. Growing attention is being paid to other areas recovery than rest and sleep. Cold recovery is definitely one of them.
Avantopool cold pools are used by professional sports clubs and top athletes across Europe. In Finland, our cold pools are used, for example, by the majority of Finnish Elite League teams and by Henri Kontinen, one of world’s best tennis doubles players.
