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.
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.”
