THERE IS A NEW PLACE TO HANG OUT ON THE GC AND WHILE THEY DON’T SERVE COF­FEE, SMASHED AVO OR BA­NANA BREAD, THEY DO PLAY A VI­TAL ROLE IN HEALTH AND WELL­BE­ING.

in re­cov­ery ther­a­pies and treat­ments for ath­letes, week­end war­riors, reg­u­lar ther­a­pies too and it’s fast be­com­ing pop­u­lar with our lo­cal ju­nior sport­ing teams. We have all seen footage of pro­fes­sional ath­letes re­cov­er­ing in ice baths, mag­ne­sium pools and us­ing hy­drother­apy post-game or com­pe­ti­tion. Re­cov­ery ther­apy is equally im­por­tant as train­ing and nu­tri­tion when it comes through at four-minute in­ter­vals to help mus­cles re­cover and pro­mote cel­lu­lar re­pair. The cen­tre also has a dry re­cov­ery pro­gram to com­pli­ment the wet zone. Spe­cially de­signed re­cov­ery suits are worn and the com­pres­sion helps to move lac­tic acid out of the mus­cles pro­mot­ing cel­lu­lar re­pair. It’s hon­estly like be­ing in a gold-class cinema as you sit back in the re­clin­ers and the pumps do their work as you en­joy the big screen TV. This area seems es­pe­cially pop­u­lar with our young ath­letes - kids and teens use the cen­tre with their par­ents to bet­ter re­cover post-com­pe­ti­tion, al­low­ing them to get back to their train­ing quickly as do our top ath­letes. Most peo­ple would as­so­ci­ate re­cov­ery regimes with in­juries and whilst this is game or com­pe­ti­tion means that you are back into your train­ing a lot quicker

your goals. The fam­ily busi­ness is op­er­ated by Travis and Bianca Mar­sham and I was very in­ter­ested to learn from Travis that the hy­per­baric oxy­gen cham­ber at the cen­tre is also pop­u­lar with fam­i­lies as an al­ter­na­tive in treat­ing chil­dren with oxy­gen goes to work. Whilst the re­search is still in progress there does seem ther­apy to as­sist those with autism. As a “gym junkie” I am lov­ing the re­sults that I am ex­pe­ri­enc­ing from adding the re­cov­ery regime to my weekly sched­ule and happy to send my per­sonal train­ing clients to re­cover af­ter train­ing ses­sions too. It gets us all back to train­ing quicker and for me that is a win!
