So you may remember in a recent post I talked about upping my recovery/mobility game. Well, by a stroke of good fortune, my awesome ambassadorship with Women’s Health Magazine offered me the chance to review some great new products from Wahl. Last year I reviewed the Wahl Deep-Tissue Percussion Massager and loved it. Wahl makes super simple-to-use products, and they are well-made, making them perfect for the CrossFit athlete.

So up first is the Hot/Cold Massage Spot Therapy Vibrating Gel Pack. Massage + Hot/Cold = amaaazing. I love using this on my shoulders, especially in the trap area, and on my quads. Last night we used it in combination with our much-beloved floor buffer and I could have fallen asleep. Yes, I did say floor buffer, get one.

Second is the Ceramic & Gel Therapeutic Cold Pack. This comes with a little pack you can strap on, which I love because typically I’m trying to maximize my time and do multiple things at once. If I can continue to mobilize other areas, or get some other work done, then it’s a good day.

Both products utilize ceramic beads, which heat or cool much faster than other therapeutic products. This is really great because my workouts are anywhere from 1-2 hours and typically I forget to prepare that far in advance. Being able to heat/cool these on the fly really helps me stay accountable.

Both products are very concise and slips easily into my gym bag without a lot of bulk, which is good, because honestly, I carry enough back and forth.

So that’s my review. You can learn more about these products on the Wahl website, and connect on Facebook.

Disclosure: I am participating in the Women’s Health Action Hero program and have been provided with products from Wahl and the opportunity to participate in an ambassadorship program for the period of a year in exchange for my thoughts, awareness through blog posts and opinions about any products or opportunities I partake in.
