Combination CrossFit Membership & Comprehensive Recovery Package
The Total Wellness Membership combines a CrossFit Membership with recovery modalities provided by our partner, Connected Physical Therapy & Wellness. Each month includes the following:
- Monthly CrossFit Membership
- One 60 minute or two 30-minute therapy sessions with Tracy Beck, PT
The time can be used however you like to support your needs as an athlete. We can address specific issues (like back pain or shoulder pain) with hands-on work, create a customized program for accessory work to improve your mechanics, or focus strictly on recovery with fascial stretch therapy, joint mobilizations, and soft tissue techniques.
- Two Photobiomodulation sessions in the NovoTHOR Light Pod (red light therapy)
NovoTHOR delivers a therapeutic dose of red and near-infrared light in a relaxing 15 minute whole-body treatment. PBM allows your cells to use oxygen more efficiently, which boosts energy production and cellular repair. Effects of regular use include decreased recovery time, improved athletic performance, and decreased inflammation.
- Four 30-min sessions in Normatec compression boots
Normatec boots use segmental air compression to move fluid from your legs back to your heart for circulation. A 30-min session reduces recovery time, leaves legs feeling lighter, and feels just plain fabulous after squat day.
