A Resilient Athlete Is An Elite Athlete

In today's day and age, we hear a lot about how important "recovery" work is. It quickly became a very popular term, and for good reason. If you perform any type of recovery work on your own, then I applaud you. If you are feeling stuck about what recovery work truly is, then you came to the right place!

We like to use the word "resilient" when describing our athletes:




1. (of a person or animal) able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions.

But now you might be thinking, "how is a resilient athlete an elite athlete?"

That is a great question to ask. Even if you're performing some sort of recovery work on your own, are you checking all of the boxes you're supposed to be checking? Are you sure you really know what recovery is all about?

Let's think about professional athletes for a second. We can agree that they are physical specimens, but is that the only reason why they get paid? I would argue that they are elite athletes because they take care of their body when competition is over, they have specific rituals they follow pre-game and post-game, and they do the simple savagely well.
