"Recovery is the crux of everything in training, but it is the thing that is most easily, and freqently, missed. There isn't a successful athlete in the world who doesn't understand this - the critical importance of recovery."

Proper recovery is absolutely essential... more...
Proper recovery is absolutely essential to a well-balanced, effective training plan. By providing an objective window into an athlete's state of recovery, Restwise offers a critical tool for both athletes and their coaches. less...

If there were one piece of information that I wish I had... more...
If there were one piece of information that I wish I had, it would be the state of my recovery. Honestly, it's the one thing I worry the most about. If you aren't recovered, you can't train hard. And if you can't train hard, you can't win. It's as simple as that. less...

... super valuable. more...
I used Restwise just on Monday to make the decision to take the day completely off (score dropped to 60, bad news!). Made it much easier for me to legitimize the day off, super valuable. less...

This is the tool which will help me get to that level... more...
As I transition from a pure endurance sport (adventure racing) to a more speed-oriented sport (triathlon), I need to be extremely sensitive to my body's ability to absorb the punishment of speed. Although I've got great insincts, they are honed by years of fairly slow training and aren't tailored to the speed I need to develop to compete at the top level in Ironman triathlons. This is the tool which will help me get to that level, and to the finish line, faster." less...

If you recognize it early, you can usually recover... more...
There are days that I just can't get my HR to the zone I want it to be in. This is a sign of not being recovered, and I reschedule the hard workout planned for that day. If you recognize it early, you can usually recover in a day or two. If you have pushed through it for a long time, you may need a much longer time to pull yourself out of the slump. less...

As an athlete, I've always kept an eye on recovery. As a coach, it's a lot harder. I've designed many tools for my clients to help them understand the impact of hard training, but it is always a tough conversation. If this tool works, it will really help me guide the athletes I coach... and should help them get more from their relationship with me. less...

You need to know how recovered you are... more...
It is tempting to rely on intuition to understand recovery. But objective confirmation is what every athlete needs. You need to know how recovered you are to be able to adjust your training load on a day-to-day basis. If you don't, you simply don't know how hard you can work. And if you don't know how hard you can work, you can't win. less...

Understanding recovery is the secret to the unknown... more...
Understanding recovery is the secret to the unknown. It is the biggest problem yet to solve in the world of endurance training. It's the answer to all evils: over-training. And it's the answer to the question that keeps me up at night before a big race: "Have I rested enough... or have I rested too much?" less...

Biathlon is a sport incremental gains. If I can find 1/2% more performance somewhere, that gets me one step closer to the Olympics. less...

Anything that can lead an athlete to consistently pay attention to recovery is incredibly valuable. Understanding recovery can mean the difference between success and frustration. less...

It would be fantastic to have some sort of objective guide to tell me why my legs are heavy and, more importantly, how I should modify my training so that they are going great when I go to the line! From what I can tell, this is the tool to help me start making those kind of solid, informed training decisions... without spending a lot of money, time and brain-power. less...

Not only is this a good idea, it is the future of training science... more...
Not only is this a good idea, it is the future of training science. Controlling for recovery is THE critical ingredient in a successful training program. The athlete who wins is the athlete who understands how hard he can go in training. And this athlete is the athlete who understands recovery. There is no discussion: recovery is everything. It is the most important part of the training and peaking equation. less...

...I'd be a fool not to use it... more...
The difference between 1st and 30th at the Biathlon World's last year was less than 30 seconds. That's a fraction of a percent. If I can find 1% somewhere, I'm that much closer to the podium. If this tool can help me with that, I'd be a fool not to use it. less...

Particularly at the world cup triathlon level, this is an incredibly valuable tool. Those guys are pushing themselves right to the edge, all the time. Knowing where they are in terms of recovery would be fantastic. less...

This is the tool I've been waiting for. I'm one of those guys who can't rest - I've always got to be outside training. If I had a reliable way to tell me if I need to rest, I'm sure that my peak performances would be more predictable and, hopefully, better. less...
