VFit Athlete Recovery Services
WHEN YOU TRAIN LIKE AN ATHLETE, YOU NEED TO RECOVER LIKE AN ATHLETE.
Recovery is an integral part of every athlete’s sports performance, and this is especially true at the elite training level at VFIt Athlete. Recovery is not just for injured athletes.
Designed specifically for the VFIt athlete, our goal through these programs is to establish recovery as an integral part of our adult and youth athletes’ training regimens in order to reach peak performance on and off the Turf and optimal levels of health and activity.

In an effort to provide premium recovery services to our VFit athletes, we have partnered with Cryotherapy Indy, a full service physical therapy and wellness provider in downtown Indianapolis as our official recovery partner. Cryotherapy Indy offers an array of services available to VFit athletes, included but not limited to: Normatec, Infrared sauna, float therapy, Cryotherapy, Chiropractic services and acupuncture.
Normatec Pulse System
THE NORMATEC PULSE RECOVERY SYSTEM
Get fresh legs faster. NormaTec is the leader in rapid recovery— the system gives a competitive edge to the world’s elite athletes, coaches, and trainers. The NormaTec PULSE Recovery Boots are dynamic compression devices designed for recovery and rehab, using NormaTec’s patented PULSE technology to help athletes recover faster between training sessions and after performance.
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
The system uses compressed air to massage your legs, mobilize fluid, and speed recovery with the patented NormaTec Pulse Massage Pattern. When you use the system, you will first experience a pre-inflate cycle, during which the connected attachments are molded to your exact body shape. Similar to the kneading and stroking done during a massage, each segment of the attachment will first compress in a pulsing manner and then release. This will repeat for each segment of the attachment as the compression pattern works its way up your legs.
HOW LONG ARE THE SESSIONS?
30-minute sessions are offered to help you recover faster between workouts by reducing muscle soreness and improving circulation. Sessions can be done pre or post-workout.

Does Cryotherapy Hurt?
Unlike when you go outside on a cold day, WBC is a dry process. Because dry cold does not penetrate the body like cold air with moisture, WBC temperatures are able to be much colder than what would be possible on a normal winter day without the extreme discomfort.
Infrared Sauna Therapy
Get the amazing benefits of a sauna, with the peaceful relaxation of a spa. Plus, leave feeling energized and refreshed! Infrared light is a kind of light that we can’t see with our eyes. But we can definitely see the amazing benefits.
Infrared therapy heats your body evenly, causing you to sweat out toxins from deep within the body.
Infrared heat penetrates tissue, joints, and muscles—relieving pain from injury and chronic conditions.
Our infrared sauna gently heats your body from the core, promoting peaceful energy and improved sleep.
When you heat your muscles, you increase blood flow—just like when you work out. This improves circulation and reduces blood pressure.
By oxygenating the body’s cells, infrared therapy helps muscles recover, strengthens the immune system, and improves skin tone.
What Is Infrared Therapy?
Unlike ultraviolet light, which can damage cells (like when we get a sunburn), infrared light helps our cells regenerate. It’s invigorating heat encourages oxygen-rich blood to pump through your body—relieving pain and promoting healing of deep tissues.
Floatation Therapy is used to release stress and tension in a magnesium-rich bath. Throughout your session, the high concentration of magnesium is slowly absorbed through the skin helping to restore and rejuvenate your body. The effect is peaceful. Calming. Perfect.

What Goes Into Your Flotation Tank?
Magnesium sulfate, known commonly as Epsom salt, is added to the water in the floatation tank. Of course, this is more than simply adding salt to your bath at home. Floatation therapy uses over 800 pounds of magnesium sulfate. This huge concentration of salt is what gives the water the buoyancy to hold you in a weightless suspension. This is also one of the ways your body benefits
