EDGE Athlete Lounge Success Stories

  • Melissa S, EDGE Athlete Lounge Testimonials

    As I trained for the Rio Paralympics, EDGE was the perfect place for me to recover in between my grueling workouts so I could perform my best day after day. It all paid off when I earned a bronze medal in Rio! Whether it's for bike, run or strength training, recovering in a pair of recovery boots, drinking a cup of coffee or chatting with the members about their past and current races, it is one of my favorite places to go - EDGE Athlete Lounge has become my second home!

    I use EDGE for both training and recovery… having the Woodway treadmills and a room to do weights and other-related strength exercises when I need them is very helpful and convenient. Without question, utilizing EDGE on a consistent basis has helped me stay injury-free. In fact, as someone who has a history of being injured, since joining EDGE, I have yet to experience a significant injury. I attribute that largely to having ready access to state of the art recovery tools that EDGE provides its members with.

    I will be racing the Boston Marathon in April, a race in which I am targeting a sub-2:30. Bearing that Boston goes according to plan, I intend on attacking a 2:25 clocking at the 2017 Chicago Marathon! Furthermore, I am planning on breaking 15:00 in the 5K and 1:09 in the half-marathon

    EDGE helped me fight my way to the title of North American Cycle Courier Champion in 2016 and I’ve got 2017 in the crosshairs. As a full time bike messenger and a professional cyclist, my schedule allows very little time to give my muscles a break. The amazing staff and facilities at EDGE have allowed me to give my body the much needed recovery it needs between rides and have helped me ride farther, ride harder, and ride stronger than ever before. Fresh legs TRULY bring FAST TIMES!

    I've loved EDGE since I joined a few years ago. It's helped me stay fresh for intense training that's resulted in PR's in the Olympic, half and full-iron distances. I've been able to get stronger, faster and had nearly a 2 hour PR at Ironman Arizona!

    Where do I even start? I became a member the second I stepped foot in EDGE, and it has become not just something I do or somewhere I go, but part of my LIFE, my home away from home. From the cold and hot tub, to the boots and stim (and don't forget the delicious intelligentsia coffee in your personal mug) EDGE has allowed me to race injury free and PR in the marathon for the past three years. With a number of shorter races this spring, a target half in June and the marathon in the fall, you can bet that EDGE will not only get me to the starting line, but to the finish line faster than ever before!

    EDGE has revolutionized my running. In only one year, I have had numerous PRs, hit the podium for the first time, and can recover faster than ever.  As an early 30- something, I am the fastest I have ever been in my life - and I'm still getting faster! But for me, beyond the personal accomplishments, what is so great about EDGE is the community.  Everyone I've met at EDGE is a rockstar, and they make you feel like you've reached rockstar status, too.

    Long story short, I literally LOVE EDGE! I can honestly say that I am living proof that EDGE and all of its wonders (ice bath, stim, compression boots, ect), have kept me training hard, kept my CONSTANT tendinitis/inflammation issues away!  EDGE's concept has taken my running/swimming/ biking to the next level in all aspects of my training/racing. 50 min PR after going to the EDGE for a few weeks consistently!!!

    It didn't take long for me to realize that as a firefighter we have to be on our feet for hours, we are active for 24 hours straight and we are constantly sleep deprived.  Therefore, throughout years of marathons, the chronic soreness l brought to my attention that because of my job, my ability to dissipate lactic acid and have inflammation is grossly different than many other endurance athletes.... And, overtraining is unavoidable at times... Because it's my job to work physically hard.

    That's where the EDGE comes in! Since I was too busy and didn't have enough time to allow my body to recover properly on my own, the boots and ice bath have not only kept my inflammation at bay, but immediately helped me earn a 50min PR on the first marathon I ran after going EDGE!! I constantly thank Robyn and Brian for helping me stay injury free, but truthfully there are no words that will be able to justify what they have done for me as an athlete.  EDGE and the community they have created has pushed me to be better and stay healthy while doing so, and there is NOTHING better than that!
