Professional Sport Recovery for high-performance sport

PRO SPORT focused
PRO SPORT man

Athletic performance requires both mental and physical effort: training sessions, matches and away games come in quick succession.

In professional sport, rest and recovery play a paramount role, as much as training and effort. If adequately integrated in athletes’ preparation programs, they allow not only to achieve top performance in a short time, but also to maintain it in the medium to long term.

This is the reason why, today, the actual focus – which makes the real difference in performance and, as a consequence, in the results of sport clubs and teams – is precisely recovery.

The value of recovery

Many are the elements that impact the performance of athletes. Some trends may vary over time, but the fundamental elements at the base of the best performance strategies are sleep and recovery time, closely followed by nutrition, hydration and cold therapy.

Physical recovery

After physical activity, it is necessary to grant your body an appropriate rest period so that it may activate the necessary processes of reconstruction and regeneration to regain balance and enhance one’s capabilities before the next physical effort. However, in the world of professional sport, the calendars are packed with matches and training sessions, which make it difficult for athletes to take the necessary time for physiological recovery. Which is when it is necessary to focus on the quality of recovery – fundamental to restore effective muscle strength.

Mental Recovery

Mental readiness, understood as actual training and correct recovery time, can have a significant impact on athletes’ sport capabilities: it reduces the risk of injury, increases precision, promotes fast decision-making ability, and favours better sleep and fast recovery after intense physical effort. In particular, Mindfulness programs help athletes to manage stress better, as well as maintain good focus and motivation; conscious breathing and relaxation, on the other hand, contribute to improving athletic performance in the medium to long term.

Francesco Cuzzolin

Head of Performance, Olimpia Milano Basket

“The cold therapy has a positive impact on physical, cognitive and emotional stress and is also useful before physical effor because it activates the nervous system, thus allowing its rapid activation. We chose Starpool and the innovative Zerobody Cryo for our athletes because it acts on the muscles before and after competitions or training, in a much less aggressive way than a cold pool immersion.”

“Using Zerobody Dry Float in combination with the Finnish sauna and the Infrared Therapy by Starpool helps me recover fast after training and matches, and to prepare for athletic challenges in the best possible way. With Starpool, we found a valuable ally for both our physical and mental preparation.”

«The protocol that we have designed will be of great help to the mental and physical well-being of athletes. Hockey is a highly energy-consuming sport, and a very dense agenda necessarily results in less recovery time: for this reason, with the combination of systems such as Zerobody Dry Float, cryotherapy and sauna, we’ll be able to monitor the players’ physiological values constantly and participate in their regenerative process. A Performance Center at this level is undoubtedly an excellence for a high end club such as the HCB Alto Adige Alperia: successfulness on ice depends primarily on the players’ health.»

As a biathlete and an Olympic champion, I train for about 1,000 hours a year. It is important for my body and mind to recover effectively after each competition or high training effort. That’s why I’ve been closely working with the wellness experts at Starpool since the beginning of this season. In addition to relaxing sauna sessions, the sessions on Zerobody Dry Float are ideal to actively support my recovery.

“We are very happy with the results Zerobody Dry Float and the ideomotor rehabilitation programme have granted us. The medical team involved in check-ups have tested that the shoulder joint has really worked during mental training and they have been extremely satisfied with how quick recovery took place after surgery”.

“Man, Zerobody Dry Float feels amazing! As far as training goes, it takes pressure off my back. It’s really good for recovery, in my opinion. I like to come in here after workouts and take a couple minutes and relax. This relieves a lot of strain and pressure off my back. I’m really grateful that we have these.”

“The reduced perception of soreness and muscle stiffness in the sessions with Zerobody Dry Float improves the feeling of recovery and favors both relaxation and mood. This benefit is particularly important for athletes who have a hard time getting rid of physical and mental tension. We use dry floatation also to improve the quality of sleep and the recovery caused by muscle relaxation after long trips or close together events. This is also helpful to facilitate the work of the physical therapist and massage therapist.”

“The use of Zerobody Dry Float with our athletes and staff members aims to favor the recovery from close together trips and competitive appointments, with good results. The chance to recover the hours of sleep that are lost for the frantic ryhthms that we all experience is excellent. This product also allowed us to create a good synergy with the post-activity physical treatments.”

“We were incredibly strategic with how we planned what we wanted to go into our Sports Science Center when it comes to recovery,” Allen said. “We wanted things that no doubt would have physiological benefits for our athletes, something that we knew would help them. It would have been really easy, I think, for us just to build a room full of nap beds, and that would have been OK. But we wanted to try to take it a step above and do something unique, and I think we’ve done that. Really excited about the opportunity to use ZerobodyDry Float.”

High-Performance Consultant, former Head of Performance US Mens Soccer National Team

Zerobody Dry Float was an important addition to our recovery lab during the FIFA World Cup in Qatar. With Zerobody Dry Float, we were able to improve muscle recovery, central nervous system tone, and sleep quality, by decreasing the activity of the sympathetic nervous system. I would recommend it to any sports team or athlete without reservation.

“Recently, we became the first professional sports team to have a Zerobody Dry Float by Starpool installed in our facility. We use Zerobody Dry Float for a broad range of purposes, from general recovery and wellness to treating a spectrum of injuries, including concussions, neck, back, and joint related injuries. The ability to bring the body to a calm, stress free, relaxed state is a great way to recover from the physical demand of a brutal NHL hockey season.”

“In 2019 I suffered a bad injury right before the qualification round for the Games. Besides the pain, I had to deal with many negative emotions: fear, frustration, rage. I started a program of ideo-motor rehabilitation on Zerobody Dry Float, supported by my coach and a mental trainer. Even the medical staff was surprised by how much dry floatation combined with visualisation techniques helped me move past the psychological trauma, and how much faster I recovered from my shoulder injury!”
