Sarah Gates
Sarah GatesOwner

Sarah is a former First Team All-American collegiate softball player, high-performing CrossFit athlete, avid paddleboarder, and full-time mom. While playing adult sports on a competitive women’s volleyball team, Sarah went up to block a shot and came down with full force landing right on the foot of the opposing player who had slid under the net which lead to a broken ankle.  Needless to say, the road to recovery was going to be a long one. This being the first bone she had ever broken in her body, she did not know what to expect in terms of physical therapy, recovery methods, duration of being no activity, etc… This is extremely difficult for someone as competitive and active as Sarah so there were a lot of varying emotions going through her mind.

After the doctor had informed her that thankfully no surgery was necessary and the bone would heal in a walking boot, she immediately wanted to get back in the gym air squatting, doing pushups, anything and everything that involved not jumping off of her foot, but quickly realized she would need more than just the walking boot to make that a reality. Sarah decided to give Rx Sports Recovery (rxsportsrecovery.com) a try as some of her friends from the CrossFit gym she attended in Colorado had recently opened this company.  On the first day at Rx, Sarah was hooked up to the Compex and the NormaTec Pulse System for about 2 hours. When she was finished that first day she felt better and made the decision to go back every day that her schedule would allow for a month. After that first month was over, her doctor could not believe how far the healing of the bone had come and how much her range of motion had improved in such a short amount of time. From that day forward she recommended Rx to everyone who was trying to recover not just from a broken bone, but from soreness, muscle fatigue, preventative maintenance to avoid injury, really anyone looking to take better care of their body. Sarah is very excited about bringing her passion for helping people recover properly that was instilled in her in Colorado here to Georgetown.
Brandon Gates
Brandon GatesOwner

Brandon is a former collegiate baseball player, three-sport high school athlete, CrossFit Level 1 Trainer, avid paddleboarder, and fierce advocate for simply staying active. While playing high school football, Brandon suffered many injuries, muscle tweaks, extreme stiffness/soreness throughout his entire body. The only remedy (like many of you who are reading this can likely relate) was to go to the small athletic trainer’s office and sit in a tub of ice… Brandon had always thought in the back of his mind “there must be a better way to recover from my game on Friday night than to sit in an ice bath and lift weights at a moderate pace to rid my body of lactic acid.”

When Brandon’s wife Sarah broke her ankle as an adult athlete he got to witness firsthand what the power of what modern recovery modalities, that are being used by professional and top division 1 athletic programs alike, can do to reduce the amount of time it takes to get back into the game.  Coming to realize that the majority of the people who visited the recovery room where Sarah quickly healed weren’t people recovering from broken bones, rather they were athletes young and mature coming in to help prevent being sore, getting hurt, experience extreme muscle fatigue, and just allow their body to feel better, he instantly became passionate about figuring out a way to share this methodology with anyone who would listen.  When Brandon moved to Georgetown he saw a vibrant community chalked full of athletes of every age in a wide variety of sports playing at a level higher than anything he had seen growing up in Colorado. With so many elite athletes in a relatively tight-knit community, there must be a place for them to RECOVER right? Brandon and his wife Sarah believe that the necessary toolset to get from good to great is all in how you recover and are thrilled to be able to have the opportunity to share that vision with the community. Brandon wants you to fall in love with taking care of your body so you can get back into the game faster no matter what your sport.
