The Best Compression Boots of 2019 - Rapid Reboot, Game Ready, Aquilo
2019 Compression Boots Review
As the physical demand of being a top athlete grows on a daily basis, the science and engineering behind preventing muscle soreness does so similarly. Basic post workout recovery methods and muscle repair techniques such as stretching and rolling are slowly becoming secondary to the brilliant new technological appliances, including Compression Therapy in the form of recovery boots.
What is Compression Therapy?
Compression Therapy is the appliance of a “squeeze and release” method around the chosen muscle group to help reduce swelling and reduce secondary tissue damage. By doing this you promote rapid recovery by introducing fresh blood cells to the focus area and reduce the flow of lactic acid to make your muscles heal quicker. For Athletes who train multiple times a day or during an intense pre-season/post-season schedule, there is no harm in investing in multiple compression therapy sessions per day, as long as there is sufficient recovery time between workouts.
Applying it to your Training Routine
Recovering like the pros do is a necessity, not an option. With little leeway for error in the world of competitive sport, edging out the competition by even 1% is a must. Compression therapy is not only time efficient (typically treatment is 10-30 minutes), but also extremely effective. Ideally, after your training is over, your cool-down and flexibility routine should be topped off by a solid 15-20 minutes (minimum) post-workout Game Ready, Aquilo, or Rapid Reboot compression session, by elevating the muscle group to prevent swelling and promote fresh blood cells.

My nephew had a theragun pro3 and three days after using his I ordered mine. I ordered it from Recovery for athletes instead of the manufacturer because of quicker shipping, no sales tax and no charge for shipping. Saved about $40 and received mine 5 days after ordering! Very satisfied.
The Theragun G3 is excellent in it's performance and in the results thereof.
I do recommend everybody in the healing fields from chiropractors to massage therapists, even for personal usage. The results are outstanding!
The customer service at recovery for athletes is outspoken, I never had any customer service responding as fast , as polite and making all their efforts for taking care of their customers and in a very efficient way!! I highly recommend them !!
It has been so easy and seamless to work with Recovery for Athletes from initial order, to solving a problem that was not theirs , through to our second order. Reaction time is spot on and they always seem available.
I ordered a theragun G2 when they were on sale, and due to high demand, the shipping was delayed. Jared stayed in touch to explain the situation and had great communication. I used the G2 pro for several weeks, and absolutely love it, worth every penny! But it is pretty loud, loud enough that my wife wanted me to bring home my ear protection from work. We decided to see if we could exchange for the new G3, and I sent an email on New Year’s Day, not expecting a response till the following day. Jared emailed me back within a few minutes and took care of me. Thanks, I will recommend your company to my friends and family. Great job!
I am a Division 1 college coach with over 15 years experience. I was also a Division 1 athlete and I have been active my whole life. I try to stay ahead of the curve for my athletes and I've dealt with every product and service known to man. I can unequivocally say, Recovery For Athletes was the best throughout the entire process. I ordered online with ease. I had a question a day later that was answered by Jared (Not an overseas call center) who was extremely knowledgeable of all the products. It arrived on time and perfectly packaged. This will be my go to and check in on recovery products for athletes of ANY sport. You're crazy if you go anywhere else......and you can't find a lower price to boot!
